The crater is the only remaining entire caldera in the world, and its fertile floor is home to a wide variety of animals, including the Big Five.

Insane Tanzania Safari (You Won’t Believe What We Saw!) – Serengeti

Home of Endless Plains and the Great Migration

The Serengeti National Park is 1.5 million acres in size and is home to a wide variety of animals, including the Big 5. The annual Great Migration, of which it is a part, has brought it possibly more notoriety. Over two million wildebeest, along with a good number of gazelles and a small following of zebra, migrate annually from the southern Serengeti to the western and northern Maasai Mara in search of better grazing pastures.
