The Serengeti National Park – an Unnatural History
I came across this programme on BBC 4 by accident last Saturday and found it fascinating. It left me wondering about our received wisdom about places and how short our history of places really is and also the impact humans have on different parts. The impact of rinderpest disease on the cattle in sub Sahara Africa (95% died of it within a very short time) at the turn of the 1900s had a massive outcome on what later Europeans decided about places they then Governed – including the setting up of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
Very thought provoking documentary, which shows how often luck or serendipity comes in to our decisions.
Anyone who has travelled to the Serengeti or the Masai Mara in Kenya will confirm how wonderful the wildlife is here and the wildebeest and zebra migration is one of nature’s truly wonderful sights.
