Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is the home of the Great Migration where 1.5 million wildebeest and 250,000 zebra make their way around this vast expanse of savanna following the new lush growths of grassland which follow the cyclic rains. ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’ in the language of the ¬†Maasai warrior tribe which also makes it’s home in the Serengeti and famous for their high jumping dance.

At the Mara River which dissects the region in two from east to the west where is discharges into Lake Victoria, the Great Migration must dice with death as it negotiates the crocodile infested waters, many with their young in tow.
