Location: Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's oldest and most famous park, renowned for its annual wildebeest migration. The park is 335 km (208 miles) from the town of Arusha, Tanzania's safari hub.

Serengeti, covering a vast 15,000 sq km (5,790 sq miles), was named a World Heritage Site in 1978.

Even when the migration is not in full swing, the Serengeti offers some of the most outstanding game-viewing in Africa, with the spectacle of predator versus prey dominating game viewing activities. Big cats, including lions, leopards and cheetahs prey on large herds of buffalo and thousands of resident antelope, particularly the Grant's gazelle.
