The Serengeti is hard to take in at first given the density of wildlife that appears at first to be in peaceful coexistence–except for the occasional necessary food kill.
The Serengeti is located in north-western Tanzania and extends into southern Kenya.
It covers about 30,000 sq km and hosts the largest and longest overland twice-yearly migration in the world.
Approximately 70 larger mammals and about 500 bird species are found here due to the diverse habitats ranging from riverine forests, swamps, kopjes (giant rock plies), grasslands and woodlands. A good guide-driver knows the neighborhoods of the major animals and few visitors leave disappointed;
the least seen is the leopard that lives in stealth but
our three-day safari was rewarded with a fine view of a big cat lounging in a tree (photos 31-32).
Photos 42-44 show the travel style of the ‘rich and famous’ who arrive by chartered plane, tour for a day
or stay overnight in the five-star resorts and then fly out.
For the visitor the viewing is spectacular and also humbling to how see most of nature lives in harmony.
