VENTURES AFRICA – The Serengeti National Park or Serengeti is one of the natural wonders of Africa wildlife and diverse flora.
In the Serengeti Park, you can see lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebras … It is an ideal place for a naturist safari in this corner of the world where nature wins against human development.
Serengeti National Park (“Great Plains” in Maasai language) is one of the most famous parks in Africa and covers an area of 14,700 square kilometers in northern Tanzania, west of Ngorongoro Crater and south park the Maasai Mara in Kenya. It was the first official park in Tanzania, declared as such in 1951, and declared World Heritage in 1981. Billions of animals have their homes here and many documentaries have been shot there. But its fame comes first because of the greater migration of animals that takes place across the plains and the Grumeti River in search of new pastures.
We are talking about 1.5 million gnus, zebras and gazelles begin to move together to survive seasonal drought. They devour each day 4,000 tons of grass on their way! This is an impressive sight, sound and smell one can never forget!
The crossing of the Grumeti River is another event with crocodiles literally awaiting manna from heaven. This is where life and death collide in power, beauty and cruelty!
Just before the entrance to the Serengeti is the valley of the Olduvai alleged cradle of humanity, with the discovery of skulls homo habilis and homo erectus in the sixties by the Leakey family. This is also where you can still find the footprints of our ancestors, dating back 3.75 million years!
The Serengeti is visited in all seasons because the quantity, variety and density of animals in this unimaginable park. Migration begins in May, the animals leaving the southern Serengeti, where the grass becomes scarce, to head north, through the Western Corridor, to arrive in the Maasai Mara (Kenya) end June. Then in September, the animals recover enroute to the south, passing through the region of Lobo and the Grumeti River to arrive in the Great Plains region Ndutu, where in February and March, hundreds of thousands of wildebeest babies are born!
For bird lovers, the Serengeti offers more than 500 species of birds, despite the large expanses of plain. There are about 4300 species of ostriches.
Wildebeest, especially during migration, are the largest population with more than one million head, followed by different zebras and gazelles. It is also a perfect spot to watch predators like jaguars and lions hunt.
