About Park

Serengeti National Park, in northern Tanzania, is known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra. Seeking new pasture, the herds move north from their breeding grounds in the grassy southern plains. Many cross the marshy western corridor’s crocodile-infested Grumeti River. Others veer northeast to the Lobo Hills, home to black eagles. Black rhinos inhabit the granite outcrops of the Moru Kopjes.

The Serengeti National Park, or Serengeti Park, or just Serengeti, was founded because the area was used for hunting lions and this led to a vast depopulation of the animals. The British colonial administration in Tanzania created a partial game reserve of around 3.2 square kilometers (800 acres) in 1921 and made it a full game reserve in 1929. This was the foundation of what will one day become known as the Serengeti National Park, which was officially established in 1951. In 1981 it was designated as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

With the world famous Maasai Mara National Reserve to the North, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to the southeast, Ikorongo and Grumeti Game Reserves to the West, the Maswa Game Reserve to the southwest, and the Loliondo Game Control Area to the northeast, you will find the Larger Serengeti Ecosystem which is all connected with free roaming animals which leads to a greater biodiversity. This entire area is considered as one of the most beautiful areas in the world and is a must-see for any nature lover.

The national park is vast and to make it easier it is divided into three areas, each with a large variety of animals and plant life.

The Western Corridor is known for the black clay soil which covers the savannah of the entire region. This area is home to the Grumeti River which is featured often in television documentaries on the Great Wildebeest Migration, often showing how the large Nile Crocodiles hunt the animals trying to cross. The area is home to various other animals such as lions, leopard, cheetahs, patas monkeys, hippopotamus and the majestic martial eagles.

The Northern Serengeti is covered in beautiful open woodlands and is probably the best place in the national park to find Elephant and giraffe. It is one of the best areas to find the dik-dik, which is one of the smallest antelope in Africa, standing at around 30-40 centimeters (12-15 inches).

The Serengeti Plains is quite spectacular. Almost completely treeless, it provides great views of animals roaming. This area is where the Wildebeest calve from December until May. The influx of young proves to bring about a great deal predator sightings as they regularly target the easy prey. During the wet season, other large herds of buffalo, zebra, hartebeest and various other animals occur and with the vast open plains which makes the viewing effortless, it is easy to see why the Serengeti Plains is such a popular area for tourism.
