The Serengeti – African Safari

Date : October 13, 2011

I am running behind with updating my blog with photos. I have some more photos from South America and a lot from Africa, where I was in february/march. So I decided to show you some photos from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. I will be be posting more photos from my safari in the following days/weeks so be sure to come back.

The Serengeti is located in north Tanzania and extends to south-western Kenya and it spans some 30.000 km2. The Serengeti hosts the largest mammal migration in the world, which is one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world.

Maasailand has East Africa’s finest game areas. The governments of Tanzania and Kenya maintain a number of Protected Areas: parks, conservation areas, game reserves, etc. that give legal protection to over 80% of the Serengeti.

Altitudes in the Serengeti range from 920 to 1,850 meters with mean temperatures varying from 15 to 25 degrees Celsius. Although the climate is usually warm and dry, rainfall occurs in two rainy seasons: March to May, and a shorter season in October and November.

The Serengeti was used as inspiration for the animated Disney feature film The Lion King and subsequent theatrical production.


I have been to a few parks in Tanzania during my trip, but the Serengeti was the largest. Every park has its own advantages, animals, secrets…but more on others later on.
