One of the world’s most famous National Parks, the Serengeti is known for its annual wildebeest migration that crosses its vast grassy plains. With more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson's gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, the Serengeti supports the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa.
The main feature in this astounding conservation area and UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Ngorongoro Crater. The largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world, with its steep walls, is home to incredible scenes of natural drama daily, as prey and predators graze and stalk their way around the open grasslands in such close proximity that it truly feels like a Garden of Eden.
Known for elephant herds that can be 200-strong and 700 resident lions, Tarangire is second only to the Serengeti when it comes to wildlife numbers in Tanzania. Its varied landscape of grasslands, swamps and woodlands and is dominated by majestic near prehistoric baobab trees and is cut in two by the Tarangire River, and is home to more than 550 bird species.
