Safari it is a Swahili word that means“journey” and the professional word for safari is Game drive, as it sounds – a game. Slow drive at wild animals habitat searching for various animals that choose their way in the wild and it requires experience from your tour guide and luck also want be a bad idea as well.
Serengeti(endless plains in Masai language) the most famous national park all over Africa with wild animals. A major part of this 9 days trip at the Serengeti will be to search (game drive) for the big migration wild herds are crossing the Mara River, on their way to the North or to the South, after the fresh green grass, the wilder beast favorite food. Zebras always join the herds since they protect one another, one sees better and the other hears better while not competing on the food since Zebra are after the dry and rough grass.
During the Game drive we’ll see big cats such as Lions, Leopards and Cheetah and Hyenas as well as other wild animals of the Serengeti such as elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, vultures, many antelopes and others.
