Apr 27, 2010

Here is the national park that famous with the annual migration of over one million and a half white bearded (or brindled) wildebeest and 200,000 zebra. The Serengeti National Park is located in Serengeti area, Tanzania, Africa. This beautiful place covers s 14,763 km² (5,700 square miles) of grassland plains and savanna as well as riverine forest and woodlands.

The park is divided into three regions, such as Serengeti Plains which consist of the almost treeless grassland of the south is the most emblematic scenery of the park and many animal live there.

Western corridor or called “black Cotton”. This region is covered by the swampy savannah, many animals like Nile Crocodiles, colobus, monkey and also martial eagle live there. This place is passed by the animal migration from May to July.
Last region is Northern Serengeti, this area is a landscape which dominated by open woodlands and hills. This place is passed by the wildebeest and zebra migration about from July to august and in November. This beautiful place also cover by the bushy savannah is the best place to find elephant, giraffe and dik dik.

The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.

It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back.

The name Serengeti is an approximation of the word used by the Maasai to describe the area. This traveling destination also listed by the UNESCO as one of the World Heritage Sites.
