Serengeti - The place where the land moves on forever!

The Serengeti hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which helps secure it as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa,[1] and one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world. The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment.[3] The region contains the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and several game reserves.

Serengeti is derived from the Maasai language, Maa; specifically, "Serengit" meaning "Endless Plains".

Much of the Serengeti was known to be part of the most wildness place in Africa. The Maasai are known as fierce warriors, and live alongside most wild animals with an aversion to eating game and birds, subsisting exclusively on their cattle. 

Each year around the same time the circular great wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro area of the southern Serengeti of Tanzania. This migration is a natural phenomenon determined by the availability of grazing. It lasts from approximately January to March, when the calving season begins – a time when there is plenty of rain ripened grass available for the 750,000 zebra that precede 1.2 million wildebeest and the following hundreds of thousands of other plains game.
