Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti shall not die
The Serengeti ecosystem is a world-renowned natural landscape and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Great Migration involving wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelles that takes place here is the largest ungulate migration on earth. With resilient populations of predators and iconic animals such as elephants, giraffes, and rhinos, the Serengeti is a majestic natural landscape.
“Serengeti shall not die” is the title of Bernhard and Michael Grzimek’s academy award-winning 1959 documentary and represents Frankfurt Zoological Society’s (FZS) goal and vision to this day; the Serengeti remains at the core of our conservation work in Africa.
