Map showing the location of Serengeti National Park world heritage site in TanzaniaArea: 14,763 km2

 

Inscribed: 1981

Criteria: (vii) aesthetic; (x) biodiversity

Values:  Twice a year ungulate herds of unrivalled size pour across the ‘endless plains' of Serengeti on their annual migrations between grazing grounds which stretch from the Ngorongoro highlands in the south to Kenya's Masai Mara in the north. The migration involves more than a million large herbivores, with herds of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles, followed by predators.  It is, without doubt, one of the most impressive wildlife spectacles in the world.
