SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

DETAILS

The Serengeti National Park is the largest in the North circuit with an area of 14,750 square kilometres (5,700 sq mi) of grassland plains, savanna, riverine forest, and woodlands. The endless plains, (as the name Serengeti suggests I n Maasai language) is very rich in mosaic ecosystem. The National park is very famous for the wildebeests and zebra migration seasonally for pastures and breeding, along with the predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas etc following the prey. The numerous Nile crocs and honey badgers are also quite a characteristic in Serengeti National Park.

The most popular animals in the Serengeti National Parks, among tourists are the Big Five, which includes; Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes, Elephants and Rhinoceroses.

The Park can be divided into 3 sections. The popular southern/central part (Seronera Valley), is what the Maasai called the “serengit”, the land of endless plains. It’s classic savannah, dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River, and has more forests and dense bush. The north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section.

The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.
