Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP); Lens: Canon EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM; Focal Length: 120mm; Aperture: f/36; Shutter Speed: 1/30; ISO: 200.

Location: Serengeti National Park, stretching from Kenya in the north to Lake Victoria in the west, covers a massive 15,000 sq km (5,790 sq miles). It is Tanzania's oldest and most famous park and was named a World Heritage Site in 1978.

While Serengeti is best known for its annual wildebeest and zebra migration, those on safari in the park can look forward to outstanding wildlife sightings, even after the migration has ended.

The park's Masai name, Serenget, means "Endless Plains" and it's these plains that support the large numbers of mammals, both predators and prey, that populate Serengeti. The open landscape also make it easier for those on safari to see and photograph the wildlife.
