Reenergized, leave the crater highlands behind and fly to Serengeti National Park
, likely the most famous wildlife sanctuary in the world and, during the months of the migration, contains huge numbers of wildebeest and zebra. Your activities these days will depend on where you're staying.
FROM JUNE TO OCTOBER,
Restored from your stay at Gibb’s Farm, leave the crater highlands behind as your scheduled flight takes you to one of the most famous wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the Serengeti National Park. After landing in Kogatende we drive to Sayari Camp, located in the Mara Triangle area near the Northern border with Kenya. During the months of the migration these seemingly unending plains contain huge numbers of wildebeest and zebra.
The area is also famous for its lion, cheetah and hyena which are particularly active during the calving season. In addition, you can expect to see Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, elands, impalas, klipspringers and warthogs. Upon reaching our intimate safari camp, settle into your spacious tent complete with luxury linens, en suite bathroom and screened verandah. The next three days are spent game driving in open vehicles in the Park. Overnights at Sayari Camp.
FROM NOVEMBER TO MARCH,
Depart the Ngorongoro Highlands today with your driver guide headed for the Serengeti. Stop along the way at the Olduvai Gorge, where Louis and Mary Leakey made their early hominid findings. See the remains of early man, his artifacts and other fossilized prehistoric animals. Continue to the Serengeti and the Moru kopjes, massive islands of granite standing in a sea of grass, which provide shelter to a great variety of plants and animals from the elusive leopard to the tiny dik dik.
During the months of December to March the Migration gathers in the Southern Serengeti, culminating in the annual calving season late in February. In addition the Moru Kopjes area is the only place in the Serengeti where rhino can currently be seen. Our next days are spent with our driver-guide exploring this renowned National Park looking for prides of lion, herds of elephants, and the numerous species of predators and plains game that reside in the area. Overnight at Dunia Camp.
