The park covers 14,763 sq km of endless rolling plains in northern Tanzania. It lies between the shores of Lake Victoria in the west, Lake Eyasi in the south, and the Great Rift Valley to the east. It is one of the world's last great wildlife refuges. Most of its three million large animals take part in a seasonal migration.
Short grass plains and Acacia and Balanyte trees dominate the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. The Lamai Wedge where our camp is situated, due to the presence of numerous springs, resident game is plentiful all year round (just like the Masai Mara) even when the migration is in the south.
Serengeti Mara offers the big five, an amazing bird life, reptiles, numerous antelope species and also cheetah, hyena, giraffes, zebra, wild dogs, hippos, jackals, porcupines, warthogs, baboons and millions of wildebeest!
