The Serengeti lies in Tanzania and it is one of the most famous parks in the whole African continent due to the extraordinary presence of wildlife, the high concentration of big cats, and how easy it is to spot them. Furthermore, it is globally well-known thanks to the biggest migration of land mammals occurring in its boundless grasslands. This phenomenon, known as the Great Migration, has occurred for millions of years with no interruption.

Its extension and the variety of vegetation and land structure allow many different animals to live within the Park. They also allow those who visit it to experience something unique and exciting.

Some, but definitely not all, of the wonders awaiting those who decide to visit this natural paradise are: the southern plains, reaching out as far as the eye can see; the Seronera Valley and its everlasting rivers where animals gather, especially during the dry season; the mighty Mara and Grumeti Rivers, settings for spectacular crossings of wildebeests; the Kopjes, where it is possible to catch sight of big cats, and the Moru Kopjes, where black rhinos are spotted instead.
