Serengeti National Park is well known for its spectacular migration events. Driven by seasonal changes, more than a million of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles continuously travel around for finding food.
The area is also the home of predators like lions, leopards and cheetahs and many other animal and bird species.
The Maasai people named the area, Siringet, which means "the place where the land runs on forever".
The park was established in 1951 and is Tanzania's oldest national park. In 1959 the British evicted the resident Maasai from the park.
