African Savanna- Serengeti Plains

Serengeti Plains

Located mostly in north-west Tanzania
Extends to parts of South-west Kenya

A grass savanna which spans approximately 12,000 sq mi (30,000 sq km),
The grass savanna is a biome (a major global biotic community characterized by the dominant forms of plant life and the climate) that is a rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees. It is usually found between a tropical rainforest and desert biomes; however, there is not enough rain that falls on the savanna to support many trees.
The Serengeti Plains is one of the most famous savannas in the world. Here, there are many large grazing and hunting animals that migrate through. The Masai, who graze their cattle on the plains have thought of the Serengeti to be a symbol of paradise. They call it 'Siringitu', which means "the place where the land moves on forever". The unique ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The features have hardly changed over the past million years, and the Serengeti is famous for its large migration of Wildebeest and zebras through the plains.
