The Serengeti is one of Tanzania’s most famous National Parks. Elephant herds roaming and feeding in the shade of dense arcadia trees of the northern plains of Lobo, and Loliondo. Prides of lion’s, cheetah, leopard and spotted hyena stalk stealthily through the grassland in pursuit of their intended prey, while orange sunsets sink behind the rolling green hills typify the northern Serengeti. The migration route for thousands of Wildebeest forging through rivers, kicking up dust migrating to lush pastures. Most safaris focus on the easily accessed Central Serengeti, with tree lions lazing, watchfully surveying the landscape, hippos languishing in the cool river waters, and hot-air balloons drifting overhead, gently skimming the grasslands in search of the perfect wildlife experience. The less traveled northern plains of Lobo, with rolling hills, Kopje, and Arcadia trees provides excellent wildlife viewing and between June and November allows easy access to the Mara River to watch the great wildebeest migration forging the treacherous waters. February is a time of calving, with many newborn animals.

Day 3 : Early morning game drive, return for breakfast, then full day game drive, on which you will likely see lions lounging in trees or on the kopje (rocky out crops), watch Hippo’s lazily wallow in the river while you enjoy a Box Lunch. You will arrive back at your campsite in the late afternoon, for tea. Relax as you watch the sun go down and enjoy a tasty dinner.
