Serengeti is home to the Maasai people, which means “endless plains”. Serengeti National Park is the first of its kind in Tanzania, inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage in 1981.
Serengeti is known to the world by its amazing fauna and flora, and spectacular natural views. One of nature’s most marvelous scenes, the Great Wildebeest Migration, follows a certain pattern every year around the Serengeti. Serengeti National Park also hosts “The Big Five” – Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Black Rhino, and African Buffalo, and many more species, making it the ultimate destination for safaris.
