Location: Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's oldest and most famous park, renowned for its annual wildebeest migration. The park, covering a vast 15,000 sq km (5,790 sq miles), was named a World Heritage Site in 1978.

The park's Masai name, Serenget, means "Endless Plains" and it's these plains that support the large numbers of mammals that populate Serengeti.

Accommodation in Serengeti ranges from exclusive luxury safari lodges like Singita Sasakwa in the Grumeti Reserve, Klein's Camp with its panoramic views, and Grumeti Tented Camp, to mobile tented camps that follow the migration, to the more affordable and popular Seronera Wildlife Lodge in the middle of the park.
