THE EARTH’S MOST EXCITING NATURAL SERIES IN SERENGETI, TANZANIA.
#NaabiHill at the park's entrance, from where the Serengeti's grasslands appear to stretch to the very ends of the earth. Or maybe it's a coalition of male lions stalking across open plains, their manes catching the breeze. Or it may be the epic migration of animals in their millions, following the ancient rhythm of #Africa's seasons. Whatever it is, welcome to one of the wildest places, one of the greatest wildlife-watching destinations on #earth.
It’s here on the vast plains of the Serengeti that one of earth’s most impressive natural cycles has played out for years as hundreds of thousands of gorgeous animals, driven by primeval rhythms of survival, move constantly in search of fresh grasslands. The most famous, and numerous, are the #wildebeest (of which there over 1.5 million) and their #annualmigration is the Serengeti’s calling card. There are also resident wildebeest populations in the park and you’ll see these smaller but still impressive herds year-round. In February more than 8000 wildebeest calves are born each day, although about 40% of these will die before reaching four months old. A few #blackrhinos in the #MoruKopjes area offer a chance for the #BigFive, although they’re very rarely seen.
The 14,763 sq km #SerengetiNationalPark is also renowned for its #predators, especially its #lions. Hunting alongside the lions are cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, jackals and more. These feast on #zebras, #giraffes, #buffaloes, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, elands, hartebeest, impalas, klipspringers, duikers and so many more. It’s an incredible bird watching destination, too, with over 500 species.
