Start the day early with a hot beverage, a quick breakfast, and an African sunrise before heading out as close to first light as possible. An early start provides the best chance to catch the nocturnal cats on the move as we head out to find the herds of wildebeest and their young calves.
The sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains is as liberating as the game viewing.
The Serengeti is unequaled for its beauty and scientific value and has come to symbolize the classic African Safari. With more than 2 million wildebeest, 500,000 Thomson’s gazelle, and 250,000 zebra, it has the largest concentration of plains game animals in Africa.
Be prepared for a full-day game drive – you never know what you might see. In addition to hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, you could see great herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, topi, eland, zebra, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and much, much more. The days are flexible however and we will stop along the way for lunch and to stretch our legs in a shaded spot or designated picnic area or return to camp if we have had a good morning of wildlife sightings.
During the afternoon game drive, we may stay with the enormous herds of wildebeest or go looking for big cats – lions waking from their slumber for the evening hunt or perhaps we spot the elusive leopard. We will be at camp by sunset where there will be hot showers to wash off the African dust. Relax in camp with drinks and dinner, before retiring to your comfortable tents with foam mattresses and sleeping bags.
