Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is adjacent to Maasai Mara in Kenya separated by a river. Away 320 kilometers from Arusha city, the park covers an area of 14,763 square Kilometers makes it the biggest National Park in Tanzania with numerous different kinds of wild animals.

The vegetation of the park stretch from plain low grasses with dotted leave less trees. One of the most breathtaking events in the animal kingdom is the migration of thousands of zebras, wildebeest, accompanied by Thomson’s gazelles and Elands to the contiguous Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya and Ngorongoro conservation area respectively.

THE GREAT MIGRATION of these animals is to search for the better grazing and water. Researchers have learned that these herbivores take a lot of water and greens and they can’t stay for long without both. So during the dry seasons in Serengeti National Park these animals act as refugees to the nearby game reserve and national parks.

This happens every same time of the year with its famous routes of northern and western corridors of the park. Other mammals found in Serengeti include giraffes, lions, hippos, cheetahs, klipspringers, warthogs, topi, impalas, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles and elands.
