Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
The Maasai people are credited with naming Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. The Maasai lived in the “endless plains” for over 200 years prior to the first European visitors. In 1920, Stewart Edward White led a British hunting party in the area, killing fifty lions and greatly thinning the cat population. In 1921, the British, recognizing the need to protect the Serengeti animals, created an 800-acre game reserve, which was officially named and sanctioned as Serengeti National Park in 1951.
