The Serengeti African Park can be divided into four distinctive topographical areas:
- The southern park area, which features the Serengeti plains and its kopjes.
- The central park area also referred to as the Seronera area where most of the campsites and some of the lodges are located.
- The western corridor, a wedge of land along the Grumeti River, which reaches to within 8km of Lake Victoria.
- To the northern corridor, which links up with the Masai Mara in Kenya and, which is used by most of the animals during the up and down migration periods
The Serengeti National Park hosts the annual wildebeest migration across its grassy plains - arguably the world's greatest wildlife spectacle - this Serengeti National Park is without a doubt a defining image of East Africa and more specifically Tanzania.
