Your Serengeti adventure begins here. After a good breakfast, you’ll drive to the world famous Serengeti National Park. It’s world-famous for a reason: its home to the world’s largest concentration of wildlife including zebra, gazelle, lions, wildebeest, elephant and giraffe. It’s also one of the points of the seasonal migration of wildebeest, which is an awesome sight in the truest sense of the word. Serengeti means ‘The land that moves on forever’ and you can see why the Serengeti flows with a never-ending wave of movement and a buzz of activity. You’ll stop for a well-earned break for lunch on a kopje (rock outcropping), gazing down on the incredible views while you eat and preparing yourself for your adventures deeper into the park.

Lions, leopard, cheetah and water buffalo up close – there are no words to describe the feeling of closeness to animals so beautiful and so wild.
