Enjoy your first chance to get a glimpse of African wildlife with an afternoon game drive across the park’s vast iconic plains.
Overnight stay in Serengeti National Park.

Now you get two full days to experience the Serengeti. Known to host one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles on earth – the great migration of wildebeest and zebra – the Serengeti’s vast plains are also home to a haven of other wildlife, including lions, cheetahs, leopards, and many other predators.
Two overnight stays in Serengeti National Park.

Best time to visit: Suitable all year round. December to July, to follow the wildebeest migration (either Ndutu or Mara River Crossing), June to October to see predators.

This morning, after enjoying a beautiful Serengeti sunrise, you’ll catch a glimpse of lions and other predators on their morning hunt during your first game drive. After brunch, you’ll then leave the park and go for the final game drive while on your way to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, one of Africa’s seven natural wonders!
