Serengeti National Park

It is arguably the best known wildlife sanctuary in the world. ”Serengeti” means endless plains in the Masai language. Some 35 species of plain animals may be seen here including the so called “big-seven”- buffalo, rhino, cheetah and African hunting dog. Unfortunately very few of the latter remain in the Serengeti. There are now around 30 black rhinos in the Moru Kopjes area but they may be difficult to see as visitors are only allowed to drive through the area on certain roads. In May of early June, huge herds of wildebeest and zebra begin their spectacular 600 miles pilgrimage. In their wake follows the predators, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and jackal, while vultures circle overhead and some of African’s biggest crocodile lie in waiting. Other animals frequently seen in the Serengeti include aardvark, baboons, caracal, civet, bat-eared fox, genet, honey badger, hyrax, mongoose and many more.

But there is more to Serengeti than large mammals. Gaudy agama lizards and rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite kopjes. A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded. Over 500 species have been recorded including bee-eaters, bustard, cranes, eagles, flamingo, herons, hornbills, guinea fouls, hoopoe, kingfishers ostrich, parrots etc. Best time to follow the wildebeest migration is from December to July. To see predators June to October.
