Serengeti National Park is found in the northern part of Tanzania and it has been known as the best destination for wildlife viewing in the whole of Tanzania as a country and the best in the whole of the African continent. Serengeti National Park is the best destination, forming the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem with the best and untamed ecosystem in the whole world. 

The Serengeti National Park is bordered by several conservation areas, including the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Manyara National Park, and it is also on the border with Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve and the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti National Park is the one dream that one of the visitors would like to explore. Serengeti National Park is known for its major and annual wildebeest migration. This is one of the outstanding features of the Serengeti National Park.

Serengeti National Park has got the largest and holds the largest wildebeest migration in the whole of the African continent. The ecosystem of Serengeti National Park is unique and the oldest on the planet. With a level elevation of around 6,070 feet, it will be mostly dry and warm for the rest of the year, contributing to the yearly development of species as they move from one recreation area to the next in search of new fields and water.

Serengeti National Park is a must-visit destination for all travelers, and if you feel that you want to go on a game drive safari to encounter the big five animal species in Africa, then Serengeti National Park provides the answer to this. One of the outstanding features that have made Serengeti National Park unique is the ability to house the big five animals, including lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes. The park still enjoys the beautiful scenery with visitors exploring the only active volcano, called the Ol Doinyo Lengai, which pushes out larva which later turns into ash once it has cooled and is exposed to the air. People use this ash for construction as they mix it with cement to form a strong solution for houses. Most of the houses of the modern Masai Mara local people have got their houses constructed with such ash.

Another outstanding feature of the Serengeti National Park is the stunning animals that are sometimes found within the Serengeti National Park. The major animals that form the highlights of the Serengeti National Park after the wildebeest animals and other animals within the Masai Mara National Park include the antelopes, the zebras, the gazelles, and the Dik Dik. The Serengeti is home to over 35 different species of wild creatures, including over three thousand lions, thirty rhinos, giraffes, hippos, baboons, cheetahs, crocodiles, and more. The annual migration of the blue wildebeest attracts a large number of visitors to Serengeti, and it is one of the unique events in the world that distinguishes Serengeti from other parks. The wildebeest migration is a cyclical event that begins in the south during the calving season and ends in Ndutu one year later when the wildebeest return for the calving season.

It is on record that Serengeti National holds an event where close to 2 million wildebeest animals, joined by other animals such as zebras and gazelles, move in a large herd from Serengeti to Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The wildebeest movement starts by crossing the Grumeti River in the southern Serengeti, and the climax of the great movement happens when the wildebeest movement moves to and crosses the Mara River. The river is infested with crocodiles and it is always a dream as the wildest cross the river, even when animals are waiting to form. Hundreds of organisms die here during development as we watch the survival of the fittest as hundreds kick the bucket while crossing paths, some by drawing, and others by being attacked by crocodiles and other hunters. Vultures, fish, and other small crocodiles, as well as small critters and slimy parasites, regularly consume more than a ton of dead carcasses found along stream banks.

Other outstanding features of the Serengeti national park are the Masai local people, who have outstanding and strong cultural traditions. Visitors can make use of the cultural tourism on the outskirts of the Serengeti National Park to encounter the Masai Mara local communities and learn more about their traditional ways, how they left their park, what they used to do before they were relocated, and what they are doing right now. And it is so much fun to encounter and share things with these people. Therefore, Serengeti National Park is a wonderful destination with a lot of interesting and outstanding features that have made the park so unique and attract a large number of tourists from the whole of Tanzania.
