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, the park offers visitors arguably the most exceptional game-viewing
in Africa, even when the migrating herds have moved north to Kenya's Masai Mara.
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 endless grass plains of the park.
