Serengeti National Park, one of the most iconic places in Africa, known for the largest annual animal migration in the world of over 1.5 million blue wildebeests and 250,000 zebra along with smaller herds of gazelles and eland, was awarded the title of Africa’s Leading National Park at the World Travel Awards for the fifth consecutive time.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors from all corners of the world travel to the Serengeti in northern Tanzania, bordering Kenya, to experience its expansive open plains, witness its magnificent wildlife, and engage with its rich cultural heritage. Covering an extensive area of nearly 15,000 square kilometres, it is home to the world’s largest populations of various species, including lions, wildebeest, zebras, cape elands, hyenas, gazelles, and cheetahs.

The Serengeti triumphed over stiff competition from five other parks, including the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, Kruger National Park in South Africa, Kidepo Valley National Park in Uganda, Etosha National Park in Namibia, and Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
