Description: Serengeti’s infinite plains encompass 1.5 million ha of savannah. Immeasurable herds of herbivores (wildebeest, gazelles and zebras), followed by their predators annually migrate to the site’s undying water holes - this is one of the world’s most extraordinary natural events. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The Maasai people had been grazing their livestock in the open plains which they knew as “endless plain” for over 200 years. The name Serengeti is an approximation of the word used by the Maasai to describe the area. German geographer and explorer Dr. Oscar Baumann entered the area in 1892. Baumann killed 3 rhinos during a stay in the Ngorongoro crater. --Wikipedia. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.
