Tanzania is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, inhabited by friendly and warm- hearted people. It offers the experienced traveller the unforgettable beauty of nature, wildlife and beaches - away from the crowds, back to the essence. The spirit of Africa, simple and inspiring Major Attractions: Serengeti National Park is a World Heritage Site and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Lying between Maasai Mara Reserve in Kenya to the north, Ngorongoro Conservation Area to the south-east and extending close to less than 10kms of the shores of Lake Victoria to the west, Serengeti is the third largest National Park in Tanzania covering an area of 14,763sqkm; only Nyerere and Ruaha National Parks in southern Tanzania are bigger with 30,000 and 20,380 square kilometres respectively. Aptly named endless plains, Siringet in Maasai, you immediately experience this vastness as you enter the southeastern plains of the park from Ngorongoro highlands. Declared a protected area in 1921 and gazetted as a National park in 1951, Serengeti is the oldest National Park in Tanzania and undoubtedly one of the most famous wildlife reserves in the world. According to the Tanzania National Parks website, Serengeti is home to the world’s largest populations of Wildebeest, Zebra, Cape Eland, Lion, Cheetah, Hyena and Gazelles. Serengeti National Park is also home to the world’s last remaining large mammal migration, the Great Serengeti Migration, which is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.
