Serengeti is located in north Tanzania and extends to southwest Kenya. The Serengeti encompasses Serengeti National park and a number of protected game reserves and conservations areas maintained by the government of Tanzania and Kenya. The region hosts the largest mammal migration in the world and is a popular destination for an African safari.

Serengeti is home to one of the world’s seven natural wonders. More than one million wildebeest migration crosses the Mara River in the Maasai Mara National Park in Kenya to the park in search of the green pastures. Plan a Tanzania safari to witness the annual wildebeest migration.

Day 24 of 80: Ballooning over the Serengeti A bit of geometry in the mix too (by accident). Ballooning is awesome. Early in the morning, everything is lit just perfectly, and there's calm and quiet. Well, for us at least. There was a lion below that just caught and ate it's breakfast (not pictured). We met the balloon company owners and they're incredibly interesting people. Hope we'll be able to tell stories like they do one day. #�� #�� #�� #��️ . . . #aroundtheworldin80days #aroundtheworld #ambitiousitinerary #wanderlust #travel #instatravel #letsgosomewhere #iwanttogotothere #neverstopexploring #africa #tanzania #ballooning #balloon #sunrise #serengeti #serengetinationalpark #sacredgeometry #circles
