A part of the Serengeti was designated a game reserve in 1921. In the 1930s, the government of Tanganyika was pressured to establish a system of national parks
compliant with the Convention Relative to the Preservation of Fauna and Flora in their Natural State.
The area became a national park in 1940 and was granted strict protection in 1948, when the Serengeti National Park Board of Trustees was formed to administer the national park.
The movements of the resident Maasai people were restricted and the park boundaries finalized in 1951.
In 1959, an area of 8,300 km2 (3,200 sq mi) was split off in the eastern part of the national park and re-established as Ngorongoro Conservation Area
intended to accommodate the traditional land use interests of the Maasai people in a multiple land use area.
In 1981, the Serengeti National Park covered 5,000 sq miles, which was less than half of the Serengeti.
