Named a national park in 1951 and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, Serengeti National Park covers nearly 6,000 square miles of savannah in northern Tanzania. It is home to the great migration, the world’s largest animal migration, in which 2 million wildebeests, gazelles and zebras embark on a 600-mile trek across the Serengeti toward the Masai Mara in Kenya in search of pasture and water. The park serves to protect at least four endangered animal species: the black rhinoceros, elephant, wild dog and cheetah.
