The Maasai dubbed this park ‘Siringet,’ which means ‘endless plains.’ The Serengeti speaks for itself, with over 1 million wildebeest migrating over its plains and forests, as well as distinctive scenery and other fantastic fauna. Wildebeest, Zebra, Cape Eland, Lion, Cheetah, Hyena, and Gazelles make up the world’s most significant populations in the Serengeti. The visual grandeur of the sky, along with cold nights and pleasant days, makes a trip to this last refuge an unforgettable experience!
