Together these areas form the Serengeti ecosystem.

The park is divided into three sections namely; The Serengeti plains made of endless Savannah grass dotted with some acacia and a huge population of wildlife. The western corridor made up of Grumeti River and dense forest home to the Nile crocodile and hippos. The Northern Serengeti which runs up to the River Mara, the border of Kenya where the migration to the Maasai Mara happens in July-August.

    I have bookmarked your page! I have a couple dozen friends that have visited the Serengeti National Park, and traveled throughout Tanzania, and I am desperate to experience this!

    These lodges all look amazing. Do you have a price guide post on your blog? I would be really interested to check it out. Do you have an email list? I would also like to join that.
