Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti shall not die
The Serengeti ecosystem is a world-renowned natural landscape and listed 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 wildlife such as elephants, giraffes, and rhinos, the Serengeti is a majestic natural landscape.
