Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania with a diversity of habitats and landscapes such as short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators can often be seen. Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration where hundreds and thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek in search of fresh grass and water.
Dinner and overnight at Zawadi Tented Camps.
DAY 5: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
After early morning breakfast at the camp, the entire day is dedicated to game drives in the Serengeti National Park. The areas you will visit will depend on where the migrating herds are. Predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs closely follow the trekking animals and can be spotted in those areas. During the short rainy season in November and December, the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy seasons from April to June, they return to the north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year. Your guide will know where to locate the animals for the best viewing opportunities.
Dinner and overnight at Zawadi tented camp.
