MOUNT KILIMANJARO NATIONAL PARK

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

 

A million wildebeest each driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling their instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied 3 week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40 kilometre long columns plunge through crocodile infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8000 calves a day before the 1000 kilometre pilgrimage beings again.

 

More than 6 million hooves pound the legendary plains of the Serengeti. Every year, triggered by the rains, more than a million Wildebeest, 200,000 Zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s Gazelle gather to undertake the long trek to new grazing lands. Tanzania’s first and most famous park, the Serengeti, is renowned for its wealth of Leopard and Lion. The vast reaches of the park help the Black Rhino to fight extinction and provide a protected breeding ground for the vulnerable Cheetah. Witness predator versus prey and the fundamental interdependence of the Serengeti’s abundant species, from more than 500 varieties of bird to 100 types of dung beetle.

 

The Serengeti is a sense of seeing to the ends of the earth, the sunburnt savannah shimmering to the horizon. Yet, after the rains this golden horizon is magically transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. But there are also wooded hills towering termite mounds and rocky  kopjes, rivers lined with elegant stand of Fig trees, Ebony and Acacia, stained orange by dust. It is so vast you may be the only human audience when a pride of Lions masterminds a siege, focussed unswervingly on their next meal.
 

Size 14,763 sq km (about 9,000 sq miles)
Location 335 km (about 208 miles) from Arusha, stretching north to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the west.
