Enjoy a full day of game viewing in Serengeti, with morning and afternoon game drives while driving towards the Northern part seeking the Epic Migration of Wildebeests herds which will be approaching the great Mara River crossing to Maasai Mara game reserve – Kenya.
Serengeti National Park is named among the natural wonders of Africa due to its uniqueness of being the only place in the world honored to host the largest and longest migration of over 1.5 million wildebeests to the Maasai Mara plains in Kenya, while pursued by hungry predators, which makes the struggle of life and death.
With endless plains, spectacular sunsets, infinite views, and millions of wildebeest thundering across the savannah, with one of the largest concentrations of game on the continent and a fascinating variety of landscapes, it’s no wonder the Serengeti is Africa’s most famous park.
Hot lunch to be served at the afternoon with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
Later continue with late afternoon game drive in the vast plains of Serengeti national park until sunset
Day 6: Northern Serengeti
We will go out again today for a full day game drive along Mara River with one aim of expecting to witness the great Migration crossing.
The dramatic river crossings are exhilarating to watch, but patience is needed to witness this spectacle first-hand. Wildebeest can take hours, to full days to cross the Mara and Sand River from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara in Kenya. The herd eagerly waits for one of their comrades to take the first step – literally.
However, it is quite a scary prospect going first, there are predators to watch out for, with crocodiles in the river and lions and other big cats waiting on the other side of the river to pick off the weakest of the herd.
There is the muddy riverbed to navigate, making sure they don’t get stuck and some sides of the ravine turn out to be too steep to climb up — forcing the herd back across the treacherous river to start the exercise all over again! In the end, one brave wildebeest takes their first step or rather jumps into the river, causing a cascading movement of the whole herd — one following the other in a simultaneous effect — a definite must-see event.
Day 7: Balloon Ride - Central Serengeti
Wake up in the early morning and join a group of people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti plains for a sunrise game drive while floating silently above the awakening bush, spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and vast plains of Serengeti.
Leisure breakfast and glass of champagne to celebrate after successful Balloon ride.
Gently continue to drive heading to the central area – Seronera while doing a game drive en-route.
The Seronera River enjoys year-round water flow, so there is always something of interest to observe. Expect to reveal lions in sizeable pride, hippo, or herds of elephants, whose populations in the park have risen in recent times.
Arrive at the lodge in the evening for your dinner and overnight.
Day 8: Fly Out - Kilimanjaro Airport
Leisure breakfast at Kubukubu Lodge, depart around 09:00hrs and gently drive to Seronera Airstrip to catch you small flight (Auric Air) departing at 11:25hrs to Kilimanjaro International Airport.
