The Serengeti national park is the largest park in Tanzania, and one of the great wildlife refuges in the world. The park is 14,7632 km in area, and is located between the Ngorongoro highlands, and the border between Kenya and Tanzania.
The name "Serengeti" comes from the Maasai word "Siringet" which means endless plains. The park is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and the commitment to preserving it, shown by the Tanzania government, shows how important it is.
The Serona Valley in the park is famous for its lion and leopard population, that can be seen quite easily. The adult male lions of the Serengeti have characteristic black mains. The park is teaming with stunning wildlife.
