TANZANIA ~Serengeti National Park-Unesco~

Not originally sent from Africa (coming from Indonesia), those Tanzanian cards are still a great addition to my collection and certainly on top of the list of mine favourite received cards!! :)

...A trip to Africa must be one of the most amazing adventures... But me having cards from there must be the second best thing and probably the closest I ever will be.... :(

Chetah with "Moru Kopje" in the background. This is the site of the famous Gong Rock. This resonant lemon wedge-shaped rock makes a deep sound when struck and was used in the old days by Maasia to summon tribal members for ceremonie.

The Serengeti National Park is one of the most celebrated wildlife reserves in the world.

This phenomenal National Park, created to preserve the path of the world’s largest migration circuit, covers nearly 15,000 square kilometres.

The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai name meaning ‘endless plains’, and these rolling distances of short grass plains provide an exceptional landscape for wildlife viewing; it is ultimate safari country. This land is justifiably famous for its huge concentrations of wildlife, especially the big cats, as well as being the stomping ground of the Great Migration, a massive accumulation of 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 gazelles stretching their legs over 1,200 miles in an annual race to find enough water and green grass for their survival
