The Serengeti

The Serengeti Hosts the Largest Cyclic Pattern of Hoofed Animals in the World: The Great Migration

Over 2.5 million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles move within a 30,000 km² area (Serengeti and Maasai Mara) in search of nutritious grass and water sources. These migrant grazers have different grass-eating habits; each species consumes a different portion of the grass until all of it is gone. The Serengeti plains are known to have protein-rich grasses that provide nutritious food for these animals.

Aside from the Great Migration, the Serengeti has lots more to offer. You are sure to find a variety of antelope, predators and birds in the Serengeti. Rhinos and Hunting Dogs are the only two species that you might not find because of their declining numbers.

Fun fact: The word ‘Serengeti’ is derived from the Maasai word ‘siringit’, which means “endless plains”.
