"Serengeti - wide land" Serengeti National Park by Myndo
Serengeti National Park Travel Guide: 139 reviews and 497 photos
"Serengeti" means in the Maasai language: endless plain.
- And thats what it is. Grass-land wherever you look, wide and flat as a pan, only interrupted by smaller stone-hills and some single trees.
The trees are a good place to look for the animals. It gets really hot here at day and a lot of animals are looking for the shadow these trees provide.
Also look for higher spots, they make good look-outs for the many lions you can find in this park.
You will se a lot of animals here, as many lions as you wish to see. If you have a good guide he will find you a spot where you can even watch a lion hunt.
The Serengeti Ntl park is quite big (thanks to the efforts of Professor Grzimek and son: remember "Serengeti must not die"?) and it covers an area that the animals are wandering around. 14763 km2
It hosts the biggest concentration on free living nig mammals on the earth. Gnus, Gazellae, Zebras, Impaslas, Topis, Buffaloes, Girraffae, Lions, Elefants...
(the Gnus, Zebras and Gazellae are wandering -migrating clockwise through the park through the year)
So, take your time for this wonderful place on earth. Have patience if the animals do not just "present" themselves and never stop looking and watching. It is also a good idea to stay in one place a little longer...
the picture shows a Thompson Gazelle - as one can see at the black stripe on the side (Impalas don't have that).
Serengeti is a landscape that must be seen - and felt. It is hard just to describe it.
