The Maasai peoples in the open plains of the eastern Mara named the Serengeti the "endless plain." Austrian Oscar Baumann explored the area in 1892 and American Stewart Edward White camped in Seronera for three months in 1913 and hunted 50 lions.

The British colonial government made a partial reserve of 800 hectares (3.2 sq km) in the area in 1921 in an attempt to prevent the extinction of lions. This policy became the basis for the Serengeti National Park established in 1951. The British expelled the Maasai population from the park and transferred them to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in 1959.

The 14,750 sq km (7,000 sq mi) park covers grasslands, savannahs, river forests and forests in northwestern Tanzania. The Serengeti plain includes a treeless meadow in the south as the wildebeest house from December to May. Zebras, deer, impala, hartebeest, hats, buffalo, and waterbuck are also in large numbers during the rainy season.

The western corridor is a black clay over the savanna where the Grumeti River and forest rivers in May to July are home to Nile crocodiles, patas monkeys, hippopotamus, and martial eagles. North Serengeti is dominated by open forest and hills to the Mara River where wildebeest and zebra migrate from July to August, and November, including elephants, giraffes, and dik dik.

More than one million wildebeest as the largest population of large mammals on earth, over 500,000 Thomson's and Grant's gazelles, 200,000 zebras, tens of thousands of hats and Coke's hartebeest. Also giraffes, waterbuck, impala, warthog, hippo, some antelope species, common eland, roan antelope, bushbuck, lesser kudu, fringe-eared oryx and dik dik.

The Big Five includes over 3,000 East African lions, 1,000 African leopards in Seronera, 5,000 African bush elephants in the north, Eastern black rhinoceros in Kopjes and 53,000 African buffalo. Carnivores include cheetahs, 4,000 hyenas, two species of jackals, African golden wolf, honey badger, striped hyena, serval, seven species of mongooses, two species of beavers and East African wild dogs.

Asmat Cultural Festival

Asmat Cultural Festival is an annual event for the legendary carving of Asmat Tribe held at Yos Sudarso Square in Agats City, Asmat Regency, Papua Province, Indionesia. Cultural festivals include woodcarving exhibitions and auctions presented by hundreds of artisans and artists who will showcase their outstanding skills in sculpting, weaving, boating, various dances and traditional music performances.

Located in Papua Province, the Asmat community is well known for its rituals and natural talents to make carvings on wood without any sketches. These high-value fine carvings are connected with ancestral spirits in a very distinctive style that has been the concern of anthropologists and fills in the auction events, exhibitions and museums of the world.



The Asmat population is divided into those who live on the coast and those who live in the interior of the rainforest. These two populations differ from one another in terms of dialect, way of life, social structure and ritual. The coasta…

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park is a conservation area of 4,092 sq kilometers across with 120 kilometers along the northern edge of the Zambezi River in Lusaka Province, Zambia, declared in 1983 which was previously a private game reserve of the Zambian president. The park sits on the Zambezi floodplain and one of the few remaining wilderness areas in Africa.

The park has a sloping gentle topography from the Zambezi Escarpment to the Zambezi River with two major forest prairier ecoregions that are distinguished by two dominant tree species. The Miombo Forest (Brachystegia) in the higher ground in the north and and the Mopane Forest (Colophospermum mopane) on the lower slopes of the south are interspersed with white acacia (Faidherbia albida).

El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.



The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
