The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania was established in 1952 and so it became a home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth, – the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive and due to the fact that it attracts a number of tourists, there is a wide variety of accommodation available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. The park covers 5,700 sq. miles, (14,763 sq. km) and is therefore larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple hundred vehicles driving around.
Historically Serengeti had no Elephants till of recent that Elephants come to the park from Neighboring reserves due to population increase and destruction of the animal habitat hence ending up to Serengeti National park as they were looking for refuge, the population of of Serengeti national park can only be experienced on a Serengeti safaris or simply Serengeti tours.
The last seen wild dogs in Serengeti was in 1991 till now the wild dogs are extinct in Serengeti. The park has over one million wildebeest, thousands of Zebras more than 10 species of Antelopes and over 500 species of birds not forgetting two species of primates those are Olive Baboons and black faced monkeys.

Found on the Northern part of Tanzania 7 hours’ drive away from Tourist town Arusha along the well Tarmac good road that runs crossing different towns like Karatu and others. Our drive continues passing through scenic view of the Great Rift valley in Lake Manyara national park popularly known for the tree climbing lions, watching baboons matching alone the road termed as “School boys going to school”.
The drive is much worth driving it as you see high cliffs of the results of Volcanicity, stop at viewing point of Lake Manyara at high cliff take enough aerial pictures of the park. After reaching Karatu we will enter to the Ngorongoro crater where we get our clearance as we pay transit fees to pass through this unique beautiful park.
Our second stop is at Ngorongoro crater view point where we have the best aerial view of the crater with your good camera and binoculars you see animals down the crater which rises to 600meters deep. It’s very scenic as the forests cover the area with cold fresh air at this point, free wife thanks to the management of Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authorities who makes it possible for our dear guests to share live videos at this point especially social media.
Sections Of Serengeti
The Sections of serengeti are three. The popular southern / central part (Seronera Valley), is what the Maasai called the “serengit”, the land of endless plains. It’s classic Savannah, dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River and has more forests and dense bush. The north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section. Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established within the 30,000 km² region. It’s unique ecosystem has inspired writers from Ernest Hemingway to Peter Mattheissen, filmakers like Hugo von Lawick and Alan Root as well as numerous photographers and scientists – many of which have put their works at our disposal to create this website.
Ecosystem in Serengeti Park
The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back. The Wildebeest travel through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas and through a variety of habitat. Join us to explore the different forms of vegetation and landscapes of the Serengeti ecosystem and meet some of their most fascinating inhabitants.
