Serengeti National Park
“Endless plains” in the Maasai language
The Serengeti National Park, with an area of 30,000 square kilometers not including the Mara in Kenya is one of the world’s largest Safari destinations. Beautiful surroundings and millions of wild animals in the park attract around 200,000 tourists each year.
Planning a trip to Serengeti?
If you are planning a trip to the Serengeti National Park, you are reading the perfect article. A team of Glasgow University students in collaboration with a research group in Tanzania are developing an Android application that will make your trip much more exciting!
You can be a researcher too!
The application will help you track down different animals in the park and find out interesting facts about them. In addition to that, you will be able to share the location of the animals with other people and at the end of the trip you will be able to see a detailed view of your safari.
What will I find on the website?
This website has some of the features the mobile application has. You can check out the map page where you will discover the latest location of the animals and will be able to investigate their migration over time. You can also switch on additional information layers, such as NDVI and recent fire data from NASA, as they will give you a better insight about local fauna. They also provide information about animals and an ability to download Serengeti Animal Tracker for free!
There are about 40 tracking collars on Wildebeest and Zebra, and you can see these animals movement over time by choosing a 30 day period or a specific month. Enjoy!
