It’s almost impossible for me to describe just how vast the Serengeti Plain is in Northern Tanzania. When I recently spent three days exploring Serengeti National Park, I was constantly speechless at the sheer size and beauty of this vast plain. As far as the eye can see, grasslands in different shades of yellow, green and brown spread out to the horizon, with the odd tree standing out against the otherwise featureless plain. What this huge amount of grass supports is a very large amount of grazing animals, which in turn supports the carnivores that feed on them.
If the vastness of the plain wasn’t enough, I was constantly amazed at the amount of animals that inhabit this area. This panorama is of a huge herd of Zebras grazing in a typical Serengeti scene. There were way too many Zebras to count in this herd, and they casually moved off of the road as we drove past them on a morning game drive.
I have a lot of photos to come from my safaris in Tanzania, but for now I hope you enjoy this panorama from the Serengeti Plain.
