Home of the Big Five and mass migration


The Serengeti is a national park of Tanzania, located in the north of the country, largely located in the Mara Region but extending into others and even into south-western Kenya. The Serengeti ("Massive Plains" in Maasai) is home to the largest mammal migration in the world, as a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras move from the north to the south every year towards the end of the year, and subsequently move on to the west and north again.

Besides the migrating animals, the park is also home to the "Big Five": lions (more than 3,000 of them), leopards, elephants, black rhinos and bufallos.

Staying in the Serengeti can be done by camping or by staying in the much more expensive Safari Lodges (likely if you're going on an organised tour). [Review by travelindicator]
