Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Go for: the Great Wildebeest Migration

Serengeti National Park is home to your quintessential African savannah landscape – acacia trees and roaming wild animals dot its expansive open plain. One of the most well-known of Africa’s national parks, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the Big Five animals – elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, and buffalo. Great wildlife sightings are a given here, but the Serengeti’s main draw is the Great Wildebeest Migration, an annual ecological event where millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other game animals migrate in search of fresh pasture. Their journey takes them eight hundred kilometers through the park towards the contiguous Maasai Mara National Reserve, and is a phenomenal sight that shouldn’t be missed on any visit to the Serengeti.
