Serengeti

The Serengeti ecosystem is a geographical region in Africa. It is located in north Tanzania and extends to south-western Kenya between latitudes 1°—3° S and longitudes 34°—36° E. It spans some 30,000 km² (12,000 mi²).


The Serengeti hosts the largest mammal migration in the world, which is one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world.

Around October-December, nearly two million herbivores travel from the northern hills toward the southern plains following the rains.

In April, they then return to the north by travelling east-west, crossing the Mara River in July-September — the Circular Migration.


The region contains several national parks and game reserves. Serengeti is derived from the Maasai language; specifically, "Serengit" meaning "Endless Plains".


Approximately 70 larger mammal and some 500 bird species are found here. This large diversity of animals is due to the variety of habitats — riverine forests, swamps, kopjes, grasslands and woodlands.

Blue Wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and buffalo are some of the commonly found large mammals in the region.
