Serengeti


This beautiful website is the official page for the Serengeti National Park in Africa. The Friends of the Serengeti provide extensive information about the Park's ecosystem, its physical features, and its magnificent wildlife. "Human Footprints" probes the human history of the Serengeti, comparing the "hunter-gatherers of the distant past" to the park's caretakers and visitors of today. The Serengeti provides an excellent example for the National Geography Standard, No. 14: How human actions modify the physical environment. Students can play the "Call of the Wild" game to listen to the sounds of the Park. For added fun, they can learn some Swahili. Jambo!
