Serengeti National Park holidays

The Serengeti is the most famous of Tanzania’s national parks. The name is derived from the Masai word ‘siringet’ meaning ‘extended area’ or ‘endless plains’ and it contains one of the world’s greatest concentration of plains animals. Serengeti National Park was established in 1951 and at 14,763 square kilometres is Tanzania’s second largest national park (after Selous). It rises from 920-1,850 metres above sea level and its landscape varies from the long and short grass plains in the south, to the central savannah, the more hilly wooded areas in the north and the extensive woodland in the western corridor. The Serengeti is perhaps most well known for the annual migration that takes place across the great savannah plains. This is a phenomenal sight: thousands upon thousands of animals, particularly wildebeest, as far as the eye can see.
