If you want to witness the Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth, pay a visit to Serengeti.
When American hunter, Stewart Edward White set out south from Nairobi, Kenya in 1913; little did he know that he was on the verge of discovering what the Maasai knew as Siringitu – “the place where the land moves on forever.” Back then, vast stretches of Africa had not been set upon by white feet.
Serengeti National Park covers 14,763km² and is a complex mammalian community with an outstanding savannah scenery. It is a large, ecologically diverse and dynamic self-sustaining ecosystem. However, the Greater Serengeti measures about 30,000km², including the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site) which has been described as “one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world,” and stretches all the way into the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya.
Serengeti has become famous for the wildebeests migration – the greatest mammal migration on earth. Every year, more than one and a half million wildebeests and half a million zebras and antelopes migrate north from Serengeti to Masai Mara in search of food.
Serengeti is perhaps the safari paradise, and the location of several documentaries in the wild. Apart from the migration, Serengeti has a healthy stock of the Big Five, the Tanzanian cheetah, eland, baboon, waterbuck, impala, etc. and over 500 species of birds.
Serengeti National Park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981.
Well, will you like to see the greatest wildlife show on earth, and possibly strut along with Mufasa and the rest of the Big Five?
