Explore Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s largest national park, with a total size of 14,750 sq. km. 350 kilometers northwest of Arusha, the park is situated on a high plateau between the Ngorongoro highlands and the Kenya/Tanzania border, almost reaching Lake Victoria to the west.
The Maasai appropriately termed these expanses “endless plains,” and when you reach the park’s southeast plains from Ngorongoro, you can practically feel it. The Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s first national park and unquestionably one of the most well-known animal refuges in the world. It was designated a protected area in 1921 and gazetted as a national park in 1951.
The short and long grass plains in the south and east, the acacia Savannah in the center, the steep and heavily forested regions in the north, and the huge woods in the west are the main characteristics of the Serengeti.
