The Serengeti National Park, in the Maasai language "place where the earth flows to infinity" is one of the most important protected natural areas in East Africa. With an area of over 14,700 km², it is located in the north of Tanzania, in the plain of the same name, between Lake Victoria
and the border with Kenya, adjacent to the Masai Mara National Park
, the Ngorongoro Nature Reserve
and other important wildlife reserves.
The Serengeti park is divided into 3 main geographical areas. The largest includes the vast plains of the south of the park, here the morphology of the territory favors the transit of wildebeest and antelopes.
Around the month of May the wildebeests, antelopes and other specimens go up northwards, starting the Great Migration
, one of the most incredible and impressive natural events in the world. This second geographical area, called Western Corridor
, is rich in forests irrigated by the Grumeti and Mbalageti rivers
Finally, the third geographical area, located in the northern part of the park, is characterized by abundant vegetation made up of large forests.
Here you can easily admire elephants and giraffes and be impressed by the crossing of the Mara River by herds of wildebeest.
