This sentence has no mention of the Serengeti, yet needs you to put in the place name to get it right

So luckily to me, this sentence has appeared when I was trying a test. So I have lost a heart. I have added a report of this error. Now if Serengeti is the National Park, would the translation be just Serengeti or the complete name "Mbuga ya Taifa ya Serengeti + kuna paa wengi."?

Should be "Serengeti has many gazelles"

It should say: Serengeti has many gazelle
