Journey to the world-renowned national park in Tanzania, East Africa: The Serengeti.  This location is the stage for some of the most spectacular mass game migrations in the world. Although populations fluctuate, there are an estimated 1.3 million blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), 200,000 plains zebra (Equus burchelli), and 400,000 Thomson’s gazelle (Gazella thomsoni) migrating between in this region!!

Join us to learn about how these migrations continue year after year.  Learn about the cycle of food, the need for migrations, and the beautiful plants and animals that call this region home.  This amazing area represents the last remnant of a large mammal dominated ecosystem! We will also study East African Maasai tribes that live in this area. Their language is known as Maa. They migrated to their current homeland between Southern Kenya and Northern Tanzania during the late 17th and early 18th centuries and continue many unique traditions in their life ways today.
