Seronera Valley

Seronera Valley : A memorable wildlife journey filled with amazement that will fire and develop a lifetime love of nature is one of the finest presents one can offer for a vacation or holiday. This is why we make certain that all youngsters who visit Tanzania have a fantastic time and leave with the most wonderful African safari experience of their lives. This memorable and remarkable experience can be acquired from one among many tourist attractions in Tanzania. These attractions may vary from National Parks, Game reserves, and Wildlife safaris, to adventurous activities such as Mountain hiking, Canoeing, bird watching, fishing, and so many more.

Serengeti National Park is one of the spectacular national parks in Tanzania. Serengeti National Park is a national park best renowned for its wealth of wildlife and the annual wildebeest migration, which makes it rich in various adventurous activities to do while at the park.

The entire fourteen thousand, seven hundred and sixty three square kilometers (14,763 Km2) of the Serengeti National Park is separated into three main areas. The popular southern/central region (Seronera Valley) is known as the Maasai “Serengeti”. This is the core part which has given Serengeti its name. The name Serengeti means “country of unending plains”, which is given after this zone being covered by endless and classic savannah, with acacia trees forming the necessary vegetation to cover a plenty of animals. The Maasai Serengeti area is comprised of several extraordinary geographical features including the Seronera Valley, The Grumeti River and the thick trees covering the western corridor.

The Seronera Valley, which is located in the park’s south-central portion makes up the biggest potion of this first area. Soronera valley is also accredited for being one of the most popular sites and the most attractive tourist attraction in the entire Serengeti National Park as well as having top ranks when it comes to the East African tourism centers at large. The Seronera valley, also known as the Big Cat Capital of Africa, is teeming with lions, leopards, and cheetahs, and visitors frequently see all three in just a single day of game drives, something which makes it a vital place to visit and the spot which is constantly flooded with tourist’ vehicles almost throughout the year. Calling Soronera Valley “The Big Cat Capital of Africa” is not made by a tongue slide, rather is because of the fact there are very few places on the entire globe where you can see all the Big Cats (speaking of the lions, leopards and the cheetah) in a single day and from the same spot, and Soronera valley in the Serengeti National Park is among these unique places.  Look for leopards Elephants, hippos, and crocodiles in the rivers, buffaloes, impala, topi, jackals, and bat-eared foxes near the Seronera River, as they are among the other huge variety of animals to be seen in the area’s diverse habitats of rivers, swamps, kopjes, and grasslands, which has one of Africa’s densest populations of the big cats, and lions on the kopjes (rocky outcrops).

While the Seronera River’s year-round supply of water means that the area is excellent for wildlife spotting all year, April to June is the peak season for game viewing in the Seronera, as this is when the plains are filled with migrating wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle as they make their way up north. Because of the Seronera’s central location, it is one of the best places to see the Great Migration in action, as the animals move through the area for months.

On the endless plains of the Great Serengeti National Park we do have the Grumeti River. This is a river that runs through the western corridor, which contains more trees and thick undergrowth. The least frequented region is in the north, where Lobo borders Kenya’s Maasai Mara Reserve.

Within the about thirty thousand square kilometers (30,000 km2) area, two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established. It boasts a rustic, laid-back atmosphere and bright, whimsical interior decor, yet the level of service and cuisine quality is comparable to some of Africa’s greatest safari camps. Because the river is perennial, there is always a diverse range of species in the vicinity. Nonetheless, the camp is most likely to be visited in late May and July, when the wildebeest migration passes through on its way North. Its unusual environment has inspired writers ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Peter Matthiessen, filmmakers such as Hugo von Lawick and Alan Root, as well as various photographers and scientists, many of whom have contributed to the creation of this website. This makes this place be of a very great potential, not only for tourism activities but also for other many more activities which takes the attention of potential people from the whole world.

The Serengeti Plains, which are the open savanna south of the Seronera River, are ideally one of the most ancient ecosystems on the planet. Climate, vegetation, and animals have remained mostly unchanged over the last several million years ago. Around two million years ago, an early man appeared in Olduvai Gorge. Some life, death, adaption, and migratory patterns are as ancient as the hills themselves. The Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania has the earliest evidence of human predecessors’ existence. Paleoanthropologists discovered hundreds of fossilized bones and stone tools going back millions of years in the area, leading them to believe that humans developed in Africa. Olduvai is a typo of Oldupai, a Maasai term for a local wild sisal plant. The gorge is located between the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park in the Great Rift Valley. Laetoli, another fossil-rich region, is about 30 miles away. The Olduvai Gorge was built around thirty thousand years ago as a consequence of vigorous geological activity and streams.
