One of the best wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the Serengeti projects nature in its wildest, most exotic form. The sweeping plains have been declared a World Heritage Site.
About 35 species of plains animals including the big five are found here. Of the 3million large animals, most take part in the seasonal migration - an amazing sight (not to miss).
HIGHLIGHTS: In May or early June, the annual migration of millions of wildebeest takes place, where they search for water and food as the season changes. This is a magical site to behold, and a major drawing point for tourists who visit the Serengeti during this period. In addition to the Wildebeest, the Serengeti National Park holds many types of large antelopes, including zebra, impala, eland, klipspringer, dik dik, and several different kinds of buck.
The Serengeti also has lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, rhinos, elephants, hippos, hyenas, bat eared foxes, jackals, warthogs, porcupines, crocodiles, baboons, mongoose's and different types of monkey.
There are also almost 500 different bird species, including; vultures, storks, flamingos, martial and fish eagles and ostriches.
