Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is most well-known for its annual migration that takes place across the great savanna plains. This is a phenomenal sight with thousands upon thousands of animals, particularly wildebeests, as far as the eye can see, moving across the plains.

During the rainy season, from November to May, the wildebeests, whose population has been estimated at around 1,500,000, are found in the Eastern section of the Serengeti and also the Masai Mara in Kenya to the North. When the dry season begins at the end of June, the annual migration commences as the animals move in search of food pasture.

The Serengeti is also famous for cheetahs, leopards, and lions some of which migrate with the wildebeests while others remain in the central plain. The elephant population in Serengeti was decimated by poaching, estimated to have fallen five-fold during the 1970 - 1980, since then, their numbers have slowly increased. Bird life is prolific in this national park and includes various species of kingfishers, sunbirds, and rollers, ostriches, egrets, herons, storks, ibises, spoonbills, and ducks.
