Serengeti National Park
Its name means “endless plains” in the local Maasai language. Serengeti may be the world’s best-known wildlife sanctuary, and it is one of the top destinations for wildebeest as well.
The Serengeti National Park has probably been the subject of more books, television documentaries, pictures, photos and digital images on African wildlife animals, than any other African national park. Hosting the annual wildebeest migration across its grassy plains – arguably the world’s greatest wildlife animal’s spectacle. At the peak of migration in May and June, central Serengeti is filled with over one million wildebeest, plus thousands of Zebras and other plains animals.
Lions sun themselves on kopjes while cheetahs stalk through tall grass. Birdlife abounds, with white backed vultures soaring overhead, secretary birds standing by the road side and colorful Fischer’s lovebirds in the grasslands.
Perhaps uniquely among the East African parks, the Serengeti has no low season. I t is a “must see” and highly rewarding at any time of the year. This Park is without a doubt a defining image of East Africa and more specifically Tanzania. Let Hoboadventure advise you on the best parts of the park to focus on during your visit.
