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.

Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

As enduring as the game-viewing is, it is the liberating sense of space that characterises the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sunburnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth.
