NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA
The spectacular Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a wildlife park and and a spot in which semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practice traditional livestock grazing all-in-one! Home to the world’s largest caldera, the site has global importance for biodiversity conservation. A large number of globally threatened species roam freely here and the annual migration of wildebeest, zebra, gazelles and other animals into the northern plains is world-renowned. The earlies hominid footprints found here date back a mind-boggling 3.6 million years.
SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
The vast Serengeti plains – recorded in Disney’s The Lion King - comprise 1.5 million ha of savannah and is home to the largest animal migration in the world. Around 2 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of herbivores (wildebeest, gazelles and zebras) participate in an annual trek through Kenya and Tanzania in search of fresh grass and permanent water holes; followed by their predators. It is an impressive, natural spectacle of the survival of the fittest.
