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 renowned for its annual wildebeest migration, those visiting the park on safari can expect some of the most awesome
game-viewing in Africa even when the migrating animals have moved further north into Kenya.
Great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon
thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grants gazelle can be sighted on the park's vast grass plains.
