Tanzania - Safari in the Serengeti Excursion
The Serengeti National Park, the oldest park in Tanzania, is “the place where the land runs on forever,” far beyond what the eye can see. The Serengeti ecosystem contains millions of animal species, from lions, cheetahs, zebras, elephants, giraffes, gazelles, and wildebeest.
The Maasai people freely roamed the Serengeti and kept the balance of nature until the British colonial administration banned human occupation to preserve the wildlife that they devastated. Come with us to meet the semi-nomadic Maasai people who have held onto their traditional way of life, despite being moved from their homeland. Come with us to see the breath-taking beauty of the vast grassland plains, woodlands, riverine forest, and savanna. Come with us to immersed into the diversity of animals, plants, birds, and trees. Come with us to see the Kopjes, which are huge granite formations or mounds of ancient rocks that predators use to find prey and the acacia trees where the animals rest in the shade. Come with us to witness the great migration of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles to the north from the south as they avoid becoming prey of the lions and crocodiles during river crossings. Come along with us to see the display of vivid colors in the African safari sunsets.
