Established in 1951, Serengeti National Park located in Tanzania, popularly known for its annual migration of two million wildebeests plus hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras – followed by their predators in their annual migration in search of pasture and water – is one of the most impressive nature spectacles in the world attracting millions of visitors worldwide.
The park is also known for its richness in biological diversity with at least four globally threatened or endangered animal species: black rhinoceros, elephant, wild dog, and cheetah.
