of the Serengeti National Park is separated into three main areas. The popular southern/central region (Seronera Valley) is known as the Maasai “Serengeti”. This is the core part which has given Serengeti its name. The name Serengeti means “country of unending plains”, which is given after this zone being covered by endless and classic savannah, with acacia trees forming the necessary vegetation to cover a plenty of animals. The Maasai Serengeti area is comprised of several extraordinary geographical features including the Soronera Valley, The Grumeti River and the thick trees covering the western corridor.

The Seronera Valley, which is located in the park’s south-central portion makes up the biggest potion of this first area. Soronera valley is also accredited for being one of the most popular sites and the most attractive tourist attraction in the entire Serengeti National Park as well as having top ranks when it comes to the East African tourism centers at large. The Seronera valley, also known as the Big Cat Capital of Africa, is teeming with lions, leopards, and cheetahs, and visitors frequently see all three in just a single day of game drives, something which makes it a vital place to visit and the spot which is constantly flooded with tourist’ vehicles almost throughout the year. Calling Soronera Valley “The Big Cat Capital of Africa” is not made by a tongue slide, rather is because of the fact there are very few places on the entire globe where you can see all the Big Cats (speaking of the lions, leopards and the cheetah) in a single day and from the same spot, and Soronera valley in the Serengeti National Park is among these unique places, Serengeti National Park and Garden.  Look for leopards near the Seronera River, which has one of Africa’s densest populations of the big cats, and lions on the kopjes (rocky outcrops). The Serengeti Plains, which are the open savanna south of the Seronera River, are ideal cheetah habitat.

The Grumeti River runs through the western corridor, which contains more trees and thick undergrowth. The least frequented region is in the north, where Lobo borders Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve.

Within the 30,000 km2 area, two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established. Its unusual environment has inspired writers ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Peter Matthiessen, filmmakers such as Hugo von Lawick and Alan Root, as well as various photographers and scientists, many of whom have contributed to the creation of this website.

The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the most ancient on the planet. Climate, vegetation, and animals have remained mostly unchanged over the last million years. Around two million years ago, an early man appeared in Olduvai Gorge. Some life, death, adaption, and migratory patterns are as ancient as the hills themselves.

There is a unique adventure which entails viewing wildlife in the comfort of a specially designed vehicle, usually a land-rover. This is nothing other than the Game drive in the Serengeti Park and Gardens. The capacity of a single Game Drive is usually between four to six people, trained tour guides and a driver being inclusive. You will have to choose among the four types of game drives offered by the Serengeti National Park. These are morning game drives, afternoon game drives, full day game drives and the most exiting one, the night game drive, Serengeti National Park and Garden.

Morning drive which famously known as Sunrise Game Drive is the best out of the four drives. It is due to its peculiar characters such as enabling you discover many species of birds, a variety of reptiles which are very active during the morning sunlight, most of the crepuscular animals, big cats, just to mention a few of them. Doing it before breakfast or after breakfast is all in your mind, as you can piece with either of your choice. So far Sunrise Game Drive has proven far beyond doubts to be the number one producer of the best animal videos. Unless taken during cloudy days, an Afternoon Game drive is not as rewarding as the Morning Drives.

This is mainly because by this time all the biggest cats and reptiles have already hibernated into the shrubs and tree shadow in the fear of the hot sun. Full day game drive involves taking a whole day exploring the whole or part of interest of the Serengeti National Park. You will start your journey early morning, having packed all your lunch boxes with you. It is only on this Drive where you will spot animals like tree climbing lions, lions, giraffes, leopards and buffaloes. The night game drive is not possible in the Serengeti National Park, but it can be done in the nearby conservancies such as Grumeti. It is also perfect experience of seeing the wilderness in the night and it is good for filming.

There are so many things to do when you reach at Serengeti National Park. I have described the explainable few things to you and sadly I couldn’t put into words other things that are very attractive and entertaining. Taking a visit to this wonderful site would give a power to do anything when you are at Serengeti National Park.
