Serengeti National Park
Northern Tanzania is home to the Serengeti National Park, a sizable park covering 14,763 km2 (5,700 sq mi). Over 1,500,000 hectares (3,700,000 acres) of virgin savanna are found there, all of which are in the eastern Mara Region and the northern part of the Simiyu Region. The park opened its doors in 1940.
Over 1.5 million blue wildebeest, 250,000 zebra, and smaller herds of Thomas’ Gazelle and eland make up the largest yearly animal migration in the world in the Serengeti. The largest lion population in Africa is found in the national park.
