This short Serengeti Safari offers you the rare chance to visit this world celebrated national park, for quite some short time, starting from Arusha or starting from Dar es Salaam.
After breakfast at hotel in Arusha, you will drive to Serengeti National Park. We will arrive in the late afternoon; the rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje. In December, January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, and many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Heritage Camp
After breakfast in the hotel we will proceed with game drive in the plain of Serengeti. The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania was established in 1952. It is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth – the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive. There’s a wide variety of accommodation available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. The park covers 5,700 sq miles, (14,763 sq km), it’s larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple hundred vehicles driving around. The Park is divided into 3 sections. The popular southern/central part (Seronera Valley) is what the Maasai called the “serengit” the land of endless plains. Its classic savannah dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River, and has more forests and dense bush. The north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section.
