Africa is a place that most people take a pilgrimage too and fall instantly in love. Africa is known for its distinct culture, its clean atmosphere and its wildlife nature. There are plenty of places that you can adventure out to in Africa when looking for this nature. Some of these places include Etosha, Kruger National Park, Moremi Game Reserve and the list could go on. The place we are talking about today is the Serengeti National Park.
What is it?
The Serengeti National Park is located in Tanzania and is part of the Serengeti ecosystem in the Mara and Simiyu regions of Africa. The park is famous not only for being the oldest National park of Tanzania but for its annual migration of wildebeest and zebra. Over 1.5 million white-bearded wildebeest migrate and approximately 250,000 zebras that migrate. Besides wildebeest and zebra, you will also be able to witness the natural habitats of the Nile crocodile, honey badgers and lions.
What do you do?
Enjoy the wildlife of course! You can tour the park by walking, car, plane, helicopter and even hot air balloon! Do note that the Serengeti is very vast, so try to make it an all-day event if you can. You don’t want to miss out on all the different animals you can see. Besides looking at animals, you will also be educated about the paleoanthropological findings and participate in cultural activities, such as visiting the local Maasai village.
Where do you stay?
The Serengeti National Park provides a variety of different types of accommodations and places for your overnight stays. You can choose to stay at a tent lodge over Lake Victoria, an off-road adventure lodge, or you can even bring your own caravan! There is a spot for you to stay overnight at the park.
