On the Kenyan side, it is called the Maasai Mara. The governments of Tanzania & Kenya maintain the conservation area of about 85 % of the area. 

Serengeti home to the largest land mammal migration in the world, making it one of the Natural Wonders & one of natural travel wonders of the world. The biggest migration of mammal is bats in Zambia just out of interest. 

The area is also renowned for its healthy lion population and one of the greatest places to observe them in their natural environment. The region includes the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and several game reserves.

Approximately 69 mammals and 482 birds types are found there. This variety has come about because of varied habitats such as wetlands, grasslands, forest and mountains. Wildebeests, buck, zebras, and buffalos make up a large part of the animal population. The land gets its name from the Maasai meaning Endless Plains.

The Maasai are known as warrior spirit and live in the area tending their livestock.

Great migration - Migrating wildebeests

Every year around the same time, the wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro Area in the southern Serengeti and loops in a clockwise direction through the Serengeti National Park and north towards the Masai Mara in Kenya and comes about by the availability of grass. The first movement happens from January to March when the babies are born a time abundance in grasslands and first 260,000 zebras then about 1.6 million wildebeest followed by approximately half million other grazers.

In February, wildebeest spend their time in the southern grass plains and give birth to about half million calves in a 3-weeks period. The rains end in May,  and the movement starts north into the Grumeti River area and stays until early July. The wildebeest cross of the Grumeti & Mara rivers is in July and a traditional safari spectacle. The herds move into Kenya and wait until rain in November and then move South again covering over 820 km back to the calving grounds.

The Serengeti is also famous for its abundant large predators. The reserve is home to 3,200 lions, 1,010 leopards and 7,699 spotted hyenas. It is worth noting that wild dogs are relatively scarce in much of the Serengeti. The Serengeti is also home to a diversity of grazers, including African buffalo, warthogs, Grant's gazelle, eland, waterbuck. The reserve can support this remarkable variety of grazers only because of each species, even those that are closely related, have a diverse diet.
