Serengeti National Park
So if you are the kind of guest who feel uncomfortable with humankind restless desire to subjugate nature and to dominate everything, you will enjoy the Serengeti, it is natural world at its very best. Human being take second place here. You come only to witness wildlife and nature.
The towering granite kopjes of the southern plains, the 18-20 foot of the crocodiles of the Grumeti Rivers, shoulder to shoulder masses of wildebeest on the move, the big cats who lord the plains, and the chilling openness of the Goal Mountains are safari experience that instill humility.
You get very close to the core of things in the Serengeti –beauty innocence, cruelty violence, and tranquility. When you leave and your thoughts float back to the savanna and woodlands, they bring with them an ache-a longing to be part of these natural world again.
Wildebeest are the Serengeti driving force –some 1.5 million of the, probably more. They, together with some 80000 zebra, over 500000 Grant and Thomson gazelle’s, 18000 elands and attended by predators and scavengers are a vast ecological powerhouse, roaming beautiful landscape, setting the boundaries, changing the scenery, altering the vegetation, and lying down the limits and the lifestyle of just about everything else that leaves here. But don’t let the scale of these natural machine overwhelm you. There is a variety of mammals and birds here that only Africa can boast.
It is only when you gate into the Serengeti on the ground that the vastness of the place becomes real. Many people think of ti as one destination to be seen in two days before rushing somewhere else. How wrong, there are treeless plains, Mountains, close canopy Riverine forest and springs. On top of all these questions of seasons. The wildlife and the character of places varies dramatically from one season to another.
