The Serengeti was first discovered by white men in 1913 when Stewart Edward White, an American hunter recorded in his journal: “We walked for miles over burnt out country… Then I saw the green trees of the river, walked two miles more and found myself in paradise.” The Maasai call it Siringitu – “the place where the land moves on forever.” At about 20,000 square miles they are right..
Within the Serengeti is the Serengeti National Park itself, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Maswa Game Reserve, the Loliondo, Grumeti and Ikorongo Controlled Areas and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Over 90,000 tourists visit the Park each year.
Nearly one million Wildebeest and 200,000 zebras migrate annually across the Serengeti through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas.
