Safari tours to the Serengeti
About Serengeti National Park
The most famous and largest of Tanzania’s national parks is the UNESCO-listed Serengeti. The Serengeti ecosystem extends beyond the National Park to include several other conservation areas and reserves, including the Masai Mara in Kenya. Much of the landscape is made up of vast open savannahs peppered with magnificent acacia trees and a number of small rocky hillocks, making the scenery here some of the most outstanding in the country.Read More
