Where is Serengeti?

Situated in the northern part of Tanzania,  East Africa, the Serengeti National Park is bordered by Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve to the north. The park lies on a plateau, with elevations ranging from 920 to 1,850 meters above sea level. 

Its varied landscape includes open grasslands, woodland, riverine forests, and granite outcrops known as kopjes, creating a rich and diverse habitat for an abundance of wildlife.

Wildlife and Biodiversity

The Serengeti earned the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its special wildlife populations.

The park is home to the well-known “Big Five”: lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and rhinos. More than 700 large mammal species and 500 different bird species, make it a haven for nature lovers and birdwatchers.

Each year, 1.5+ million wildebeests migrate, joined by zebras and gazelles, seeking new grazing lands. This action is packed and complete with river crossings and encounters with predators.
