The Serengeti is one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. This vast area of land supports the greatest remaining concentration of plain game in Africa, on a scale unparalleled anywhere else in the world.
The name comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. The Serengeti extends over some 5,700 sq. miles supporting over four million mammals and birds and the greatest concentration of wildlife on the planet. Due to the size of the Serengeti, we will concentrate on different areas for the different times of the year. The short grass plains (Dec-March), transform when the first rains start allowing the grass to grow from a dull brown to a bright green. The volcanic soil enables nutrient.

The Wildebeest Migration is one of the Seven New Wonders of the World because it’s the large single movement of animals in the world. The Maasai Mara and Serengeti National Park together form this circle that no other reserve or park in Africa can do, because of its incredible and magical movement happens here. Over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October. Then start to move again to Serengeti from November to December.
The migration has to cross the Mara River in the Maasai Mara where crocodiles will prey on them. This Migration is also known as The World Cup of Wildlife because Wild Animals try and cross the Mara River alive.
