serengeti national park simply the greatest area 14,763 sq. km

The Serengeti National Park is by common consent the best known and greatest wildlife sanctuary in the world.

This is the mother of all national parks and you really do not have to travel great distances once you are in the central Seronera arae, all the wildlife you want to see is all located in one area.

Seronera Serengeti in central Serengeti on transit to Mwanza, with guests with me in the car personally safari driving and guiding an English family of father, mother and teenage daughter parked up on the side of the road after our picnic lunches on a bend in Seronera Serengeti.

 Just ahead and infront of approaching elephant herds, car ignition turned off and awaiting the photoshot opportunity as the approaching elepahnts were to cross the wide open road to the other side.

Usually elephants just roam across the plains not paying any attention to tourists in vehicles, these ones too, but towards the back of the herd were mother elephants and their young ones, as they approached they started beating their ears and blowing their trumpets. serengeti seronera
seronera serengeti The teenage daughter sitting in front of with me let out a scream, luckily I had already left the car in gear incase of such an emergency, and with one kick of the ignition the engine started and I released the clutch we were off in a second. 

Back at the Sopa Lodge, the family acted as if I had saved their lives and offers of beers started flowing, Serengeti Lager of course and since than I have developed a close fondness to Serengeti Lager I must say:0).

Have had nights in the Serengeti where hyenas have tried eating or car tyres, guess from the days drive in the heat the new tyres gave a smell of that the hyenas though was food, have had a small monkey come to my open window in my lodge and i have cahsed it away as it wanted to enter the room, it left only to return a minute later with a bigger mate, it nearly got ugly, I was in their Kingdom and they wanted me to leave.

Managed to get the window closed before it got any further confrontational.

Have had nights when the hippos all decided to go walkies in the middle of the night through the lodges grounds, no wonder no night safaris are allowed, its simply to dangerous if you do not now what you are doing.

The name comes from the Maasai 'siringet' which means 'endless plains', and the Serengeti is just that.

serengeti

This is one of the world's last great wildlife sanctuaries.

Within Serengeti's boundaries of "endless plains" are more than three million mammals.

About 35 species of animals can be seen here, including the so called "big five:" elephants, rhinos, lions (more than 2,000 of them), leopards, and buffalo.

Huge herds of wildebeest, gazelle & zebra are popular for their spectacular migrations.

Serengeti's park's terrain is varied: the vast treeless central Serengeti Plains, savannah dotted with acacia trees, magnificent rock outcrops called kopjes, reverie bush, thick scrub to streams, rivers, small swamps and lakes.

These features give the Serengeti Park a fascinating variety of habitats.

Survey estimates indicate more then 3000 lions, 1,600,000 wilder beasts and 500,000 zebras.

There are more then 400 bird species.

Arguably the best and greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the Serengeti projects nature in its wildest, most exotic form.

serengeti

The sweeping plains have been declared a 'World Heritage Site'; about 35 species of plains animals including the 'big 5' are found here.

Of the 3 million large animals, most take part in the seasonal migration, a most sensational sight.

It is from here that the famous army of grazing wildebeest begins its legendary trek in search of new grazing lands.

Other common species found here include hippo, giraffe, eland, impala and other antelope types, baboons, monkeys and a profusion of almost 500 bird species.

serengeti seronera

Within Serengeti's 14,763 square kilometers (5,000 square mile) dwell an estimated 3 million large animals.

The best time to see heavy concentration of game is between January and February. Life on the Serengeti is a complex cycle, the defining factor of which is the rain. Though the precise timing varies each year, it usually occurs around May.

The columns of herbivores stretch up to forty kilometers long (25 miles ) as they make their way up north toward Kenya's Maasai Mara from where they eventually return some eight and a half months later.

Packs of wild dog usually follow, preying on the sick and weak.

Cheetah, lion, leopard and hyenas can be frequently spotted at a kill but more so in the Seronera Valley which is characterized by an amazing abundance of mainly lion and leopard.

Often rock hyrax can be spotted on granite mounds on the plains they burrow close to these small outcroppings keeping a watchful eye out for several cat and jackal.

serengeti

Serengeti literally translates into ‘Endless’ Plains. The expensive savannah is the stage for one of the most awe-inspiring shows on earth – the annual migration of over a million Wildebeest and Zebra as they shake the earth in their quest for food and water.

Protruding from the grasslands are rocky outcrops that stand stark and severe against the sky.

Feel the spirit of Africa stir your blood as these remarkable plains stretch far away.
