Safari or game drive in the professional term is a slow speed drive inside the national park, searching for Wildlife. The Serengeti is the most famous reserve in all of Africa. We will spend time in the reserve looking for the great Wildebeest herds, which are migrating in circles across the plains during the year. The migration is usually permanent in its locations according to the seasons. The herds follow the rains and graze where ever there is grass to feed. We’ll also search for the big cats like Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. As well as other Wildlife such as Hyenas, Elephants, Buffalo and a lot more…
The second day will start on a ride of 1.5 hours towards the gate of the park. From there we’ll head to central Serengeti, photographing the animals.
This day will start with a 3 hours drive towards the north part of Serengeti. Game drive following the big cats. We will have a warm meal for lunch. At the afternoon we’ll arrive at the Mara River, searching for the Wildebeest and Zebra herds. A wonderful day in the savhanna.
