2.    Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

The Serengeti is probably the world's most famous wildlife spectacle. Here, from the scale of the massive migration to ease of sighting predators, everything that applies to the Masai Mara–it's a north extension. The Serengeti is almost ten times larger, at 15,000sq km, which implies that the plains are so much' finish less' with a broader range of habitats. It also means that the tourists on the ground are a bit smaller than on the Mara. The center of the park is frequently busy around Seronera.
It is an unlikely area in which the wildlife is concentrated, including lions, elephants and black rhinos and the volcanic caldera is in 250 square km of plains, forests and lakes. Such wealth draws the crowds, and sometimes, the place can look like a wild zoo.
