We kick off our Africa trip with a stopover to Serengeti National Park. Serengeti national park is Tanzania’s epitome of wildlife safaris as its home to over 2 millions wild game. Dubbed the “Siringet” by the local Masai people which means “the land that runs forever”, indeed the natives were definitely not wrong as Serengeti is a lowland grass plain that spans over 14750sqkm or 5700sqmi making it Tanzania’s largest conservation area as well as east Africa’s biggest. While in Serengeti, you can stand at any one point, glance at all directions and see nothing distracting you view for as far as your eye sight can take you or until a point where the heavens meet the earth. A visit to Serengeti puts you in a prime position to see some of the magnificent wild game here which include Africa’s big 5’s i.e. lions- Serengeti has the biggest lion population in Africa which stands at 3000 individuals, leopards- there are about 1000 of these night stalkers roaming the Serengeti grasslands, rhinos, buffaloes and elephants which stand at a count close to 5000 of these land giants here. All these make up the big 5’s of the African wilderness. Other mammal species here include 250000 plain zebras, about 0.5 million Thomson’s and grant’s gazalles, topis, Masai giraffes, impalas, warthogs, common elands, lesser kudus, klipspringer, roan antelope.
Any birder should expect nothing but pure joy as Serengeti is home to over 500 bird species like Masai ostrich, secretary birds, kori bustards, southern ground hornbill, crowned cranes, yellow billed stork, lesser flamingo, martial eagles and many vulture species, marabou stocks, lovebirds. A visit to serengeti isn’t done yet without a cultural encounter with the native massai men who will thrill with their traditional jumping and foot stumping dance.
Still in Serengeti National Park, if the timing of your Africa wildlife safaris adventure is right happening around the months of July and August, you will be in for a startling encounter with hundreds of wildebeests face their toughest challenge of the entire trek to Masai Mara as they attempt to cross the crocodile-infested mara river. This is a stunning moment for any safari-goer as these wildebeests stumble into the river one after another as if something is chasing after them.
