|Plains of Serengeti|
The national park can be divided into 3 major wildlife animals’ vegetation areas: In the south-eastern area are the open grasslands, to the north the open woodlands and in the west a mosaic of grass- and woodlands. The lion is one of this great African park's main attractions, as there are about 2500 of these animals in the Serengeti Plains ecosystem. This is the biggest concentration in the world of Africa's largest predators.
Kopjes: Kopjes a series of weathered granite outcrops are spread everywhere in the park, one that contains African rock paintings, while another features a mysterious "rock gong". Most of these fascinating granite kopjes are miniature wildlife ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools, left in the rock after the rains. The Moru Kopjes are the most frequently visited kopjes by tourists, in the park.
Lake Ndutu: The short grass plains also feature an abundance of gazelle, before the annual migration. A small seasonal lake, Lake Ndutu (or Lagarja) surrounded by beautiful acacia trees, is without a doubt, the main attraction of the area. The lake supports a number of giraffes, vast flora and fauna, rich bird life with lesser flamingoes being the major eye catching of the area.
Moru Kopjes: The Moru Kopjes (meaning "old" in Masai) display some interesting geological formations made up of ancient granite, which were left standing after centuries of erosion and weathering. The all year round wildlife game viewing is triggered by the correction of the rain water which offers a chance for much variety of wild animals especially in the dry season. The moru provides a vantage point for the predators as they await the prey to come and drink water.
