Day 5 & 6:  –  Serengeti National Park 
After breakfast you will have two full days to explore the Serengeti National Park. Your driver-guide will choose a route based on his extensive knowledge of the park and local conditions but the Serengeti rarely disappoints. We carry our picnic lunches with us so as to make the most of the day, but our trip might include a trail along the banks of the Seronera River in search of basking lions, tracking cheetah. The entire ecosystem thrives from the annual migration, from the lions and birds of prey that gorge themselves on the weak and the faltering to the gamut of hungry crocodiles that lie in patient wait at each river crossing for their annual feed.

But it’s not just the wildebeest that use the Serengeti as a migratory pathway. Animals and birds of the area have a free range of movement to follow their seasonal migrations. Indeed, in the wake of the wildebeest migration, many of the less attention-grabbing features of the Serengeti are often overlooked. The park has varied zones in which each ecosystem is subtly different.

This unique caldera, formed by a sinking volcano, hosts a unique cross-section of eco-systems, from Soda Lake to savannah and is home to almost every major species of African mammal. Our presence does not threaten the wildlife making for an exhilarating proximity to the game that we rarely encounter elsewhere. We descend down the 2000-ft walls of the Crater, a World Heritage Site and home to nearly 25,000 animals, for a game drive.
