Serengeti National Park
This also covers 14763 sq km of endless rolling plains, which reach up to the Kenyan border and also extends almost to Lake Victoria. The park is also flourishing with the magnificent wildlife; there is an estimate of 3 million large animals that roam in the plains. The Serengeti is also known as one of the best wildlife sanctuary in the world.
This park is also known for the migration of animals. Every October and November millions of wildebeest and about 220,000 zebras travel south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short tropical rains and then journey west and north after the long rains in April to June. The animals’ ancient instinct to move is so strong that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back.
The Wildebeest migrate through a number of parks, reserves and protected areas and through a variety of habitat.
Serengeti also boosts large herds of antelopes, zebras, gazelles, lions, impala, leopards, cheetah, hyena, Rhino, giraffe, elephants and the hippos. There are nearly 500 species of birds which have been recorded in the park. The Serengeti is an opportunity for one of the best game-viewing in Africa. The main activities in the park also include; bird watching, exciting walking safaris, balloon ride in the Serengeti.
