It's a vast plain grassland with dotted trees and rocky outcrops.
The Serengeti is a world famous wildlife sanctuary with the greatest
and most spectacular concentration of game animals found anywhere
in the world. Covering more than 14,500 square kilometers the
park is the largest in Tanzania. This is where the great migration
of wildebeests and zebras can be seen. During the dry season of
June through July, these wild animals migrate to the Maasai Mara
National Park in Kenya and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to
find greener pastures and water. The vegetation attracts mammals
like the Topi, Thomson's and Grants gazelle, coke's hartebeest,
Impala, Klipspringer, common waterbuck, and African Elephant.
In addition there are African wild cats, lions, cheetahs, leopards,
spotted hyenas, striped hyenas and jackals.
On the western corridor is the Grumeti River with its numerous
crocodiles and other reptiles. During the Great Migration these
reptiles obtain abundant food as the wildebeest and zebras cross
the river to the Maasai Mara.
