Mara River Basin


Serengeti Highway Maps

Two Routes for Proposed Serengeti Highway:
• one threatens Serengeti/Mara wildlife & ecosystem
• another goes south of the Serengeti

See the NWNL Update “Serengeti Alert” for the story.

Proposed route of Serengeti Highway

The proposed road from the Indian Ocean to Lake Victoria (above, in red) cuts through the north end of Tanzania’s Serengeti NP. The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) has proposed a southern route (below, in purple) circumventing the ecosystem in its entirety. Map by the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF).

Eco-friendly alternate proposal

AWF’s proposed alternative (above, in purple) replaces the proposed 31-mile highway across the northern Serengeti that would be a concrete barrier stopping the annual wildebeest migration to the Maasai Mara National Reserve. Map by the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF).
