Serengeti National Park has become famous for the annual migration of two million wildebeests, with hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras. An unrivalled display of nature is created as predators follow searching for pasture and water. The visceral dynamic of predator vs prey is dominant across the Serengeti. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains.
Whilst the perfect environment for game-viewing, there is more to the Serengeti than the 'Big 5'. Sometimes overlooked within a Safari context, the Serengeti is home to over 500 bird species. From the Ostrich rushing through the grassland, the Black Eagle soaring above the Lobos Hills, to the chattering Lovebird and Giant Kingfisher, birds are one of the most diverse life forms on earth. The Serengeti is home to the herbivores, insectivores, predators and scavengers alike.
The sprawling landscape of the Serengeti is made up of grassland and woodland, plains, kopjes, and marshes; all of which make up a savannah. A multitude of plant species highlight the terrain providing food and refuge for the native wildlife. You may witness an African Elephant collecting the 5kg fruit of the Sausage Tree, or the gnarled and twisted forms of the Strangle Fig wrapping around it's host. Seeing the biological diversity present in the Serengeti is truly special. The savanna stretches away to a golden horizon, and yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. And there are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees and acacia woodland stained orange by dust.
Whatever wonders you see in the Serengeti, you can be sure that they will never leave you. The sense of freedom that stems from the vast spaces characteristic of this World Heritage site will follow you home.
