The Serengeti, located in Tanzania, has been honored as Africa's Leading National Park for 2023 at the World Travel Awards, marking its fifth consecutive win in this category. This renowned park is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including wildebeests, gazelles, zebras, lions, leopards, rhinos, and vultures, engaged in the intricate balance of living, hunting, and being hunted.

The Serengeti National Park holds a unique distinction as the only place in Africa where substantial migrations of land animals still occur. The park hosts the world's largest annual migration, with over a million animals traversing the Serengeti to reach the Masai Mara in Kenya in search of fresh food and water.

Spanning more than 14,700 square kilometers, the Serengeti is situated in the northern part of Tanzania, close to Kenya and Lake Victoria. Despite its remote location, it remains a popular destination for global tourists seeking a glimpse of the remarkable African wildlife. Accessible options for visitors include flying to Kilimanjaro International Airport, approximately 320 kilometers from the park, or landing at smaller airstrips within the national park itself.
