Did you know there are more than 120 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Africa? A good proportion of these sites are wildlife game reserves. These reserves protect a huge number of the world's endangered species, and preserve the natural beauty of these areas, which would surely be spoiled otherwise. Here are some of the most important ones and some of the amazing wildlife that call them home.
1. Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Covering more than 3 million acres, the Serengeti is believed to hold more than 3000 lions, the biggest population in Africa, as well as some 1000 African leopards, buffalo, elephants and black rhinoceros. Millions of animals migrate across the savannah in seasonal treks for water.
