  Serengeti National Park  

Serengeti, with a total area of 5,500 square miles, is considered by many to be Africa's premier game park.  The millions of animals that reside within this park, give the tourist a glimpse of the way all of Africa used to be - herds of wild animals extending as far as the eye can see. We saw many lion - including a tree climbing lion, a leopard in a tree, and hundreds of other animals.  Unfortunately the park's popularity brings many tourists....but it is worth it just to experience the vast plains with all of the animals roaming upon it.
