Serengeti National Park | All you need to know about.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park. Serengeti Plain in north-central Tanzania. It is partly adjacent to the Kenya border and is northwest of the adjoining Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It is best known for its huge herds of plains animals (especially gnu [wildebeests], gazelles, and zebras), and it is the only place in Africa where vast land-animal migrations still take place. The Serengeti National park, an international tourist attraction, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1981. Serengeti National Park

All you need to know about.

The park was established in 1951 and covers 5,700 square miles (14,763 square km) of some of the best grassland range in Africa, as well as extensive acacia woodland savanna. With elevations ranging from 3,020 to 6,070 feet (920 to 1,850 metres), the park extends 100 miles (160 km) southeast from points near the shores of Lake Victoria and, in its eastern portion, 100 miles (160 km) south from the Kenya-Tanzania border.

It is along the ‚Äúwestern corridor‚ÄĚ to Lake Victoria that many of the park‚Äôs animals migrate. Within the area are nearly 1,300,000¬†gnu, 60,000¬†zebras, 150,000¬†gazelles, and numerous other animals. During the wet season, from November to May, the herds graze in the southeastern plains within the park.

In late May or June one major group moves west into the park’s woodland savanna and then north into the grasslands just beyond the Kenya-Tanzania border, an area known as the Mara (Masai Mara National Reserve). Another group migrates directly northward. The herds return to the park’s southeastern plains in November, at the end of the dry season.
