Day 4 : Central Serengeti
After breakfast, we will take care of the transfer to Arusha Airport for your flight to the Serengeti National Park, where your private driver with private safari vehicle is waiting for you! The driver is well educated and has a lot of knowledge about the country, animals, and nature and even more, he is very passionate about it. He will show you the beauty of his country! He will discuss with you the day to day program.
The safari vehicle has 6 or 8 window seats, including the driver’s one. When you are inside the parks the rooftop will go up so you can see the animals close by. In most vehicles, you can charge your phone or batteries
The name Serengeti is derived from the Maasai word Siringiti: endless plains. When entering the Serengeti it becomes clear quite soon that this is a very fitting name. As far as the eye reaches you find the plains, only interrupted by an occasional tree, kopje (rock formation), or wildlife. During the Great Migration, these planes are literally covered in animals, wildebeests, and zebras, in search of grazing and water and participating in one of the largest annual movements of mammals on earth.
However, Serengeti National Park has more to offer than the Great Migration, large herds of Buffalo's, numerous different kinds of Antelopes like the Topi, Hartebeest, Dik Dik, Thomson, and Grant Gazelles and it is the best chance of spotting a Lion, or more accurately: Lions. The open plains form an ideal hunting ground for the fastest mammal on earth: the Cheetah.
At the end of the afternoon, you will go to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.
Days 5 - 6 : Central Serengeti
Wake up early in the morning and enjoy a delicious breakfast. Your driver is ready again to take you back inside the park in search for more wildlife! You can chose to take lunchboxes with you to have the full day in the park or go back to the camp for lunch and maybe relax a little.
The driver takes you on a search for the lions, leopard and cheetah. And what did you think of these large numbers of hippos in one of the pools in the park, or maybe the Vervet Monkeys or Baboons manage to charm you with their acrobatic tricks. Giraffes that elegantly move over the planes, high above everything and everyone, eating the leaves from the acacia trees without even bothering about the thorns, the gracious flights of the (not so gracious) Vultures, Hyenas trying to defend their prey from the lions. All in all a day full of unforgettable impressions!
At the end of the afternoon you will return to your lodge/camp for a sundowner and dinner.
