Full day in the Serengeti National Park
Leisurely breakfast then depart for a full day of game drives in the Serengeti. Focus on a safari in the Northern Tanzania circuit during this season should be on the Serengeti southern short grass plains and Ngorongoro eco-system. The annual wildebeest migration arrives on these plains from December onwards.
It is here where they congregate and give birth to thousands of calves in February and March. These mineral rich plains are where the great herds stay for as long as feeding permits. Apparently the iron and zinc found in the fodder of these plains is what the wildebeest are after.
The movement of almost two million wild animals is the driving force of the ecology of most of the Serengeti eco-system. Predators follow these herds like sharks following a shoal of fish. Great wildlife viewing is guaranteed because the young animals make easy prey. Spend your day in this park with “plains that never end”. Dinner and Overnight at Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge.

Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera of the once-volcanic Ngorongoro shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth, ringed with towering walls and sheltering forests, grasslands, fresh springs and a large soda lake.

A massive extinct volcano, the sheet walls drop thousands of feet to a “Noah’s Ark” of animals on the verdant floor below. Large herds of zebra, buffalo, antelope and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist.
