The Serengeti offers arguably the most dazzling game viewing in Africa
The park lives up to its ancient Maasai name ‘Siringet’, meaning ‘endless open plains’. The landscape is of mesmerizing beauty. While a sizeable part of the park is made up of seasonally flooded plains, forest and shrub savannah, the Serengeti is mostly about one thing: grass. Golden in the dry season, green and dotted with wildflowers after the rains. It has perfectly adapted to continuous grazing, turning the Serengeti into heaven for large herbivores. Every now and then kopjes 2,5 billion-year old rocky outcrops interrupt the infinite horizon.
