Located on the east coast of Africa, the country of Tanzania is home to some of the continent’s most celebrated destinations, including Mount Kilimanjaro, Lake Victoria, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti National Park and the island of Zanzibar.
The world’s most famous wildlife sanctuary and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Serengeti measures close to 14,763 square kilometres (5,700 square miles) – roughly the size of Holland. The region was originally known as Maasailand, named for the Maasai people, renowned as fierce warriors. The game preserve was first established in the 1920s and was made a national park in 1951.
Derived from a Maasai word, Serengeti translates to English as “endless plains.” The giant flat landscape features Africa’s largest concentration of plains animals, including approximately 70 species of larger mammals and 500 kinds of birds.
The park is acclaimed for the best safari game drives and abundant year-round wildlife and is home to the famous annual migration of approximately two million animals. The famous annual migration features more than two million wildebeests and 250,000 zebras. The Serengeti is also a great place for viewing “the Big Five” must-see animals for every African safari: lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and rhinoceroses – with the big cats and elephants in particular abundance.
