Elephant, giraffe, buffalo, zebra and a variety of antelope inhabit the park as well as a variety of monkeys and a large population of hippos. If you are lucky you may see the Manyara lions, well known for their tree climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of an Acacia tortilis tree. The bird life is also abundant, with flamingos, pelicans, hornbills and plenty of forest species. Driving time without game viewing approx. 2:30 – 3 hours.

The Serengeti kopjes, massive boulder islands of granite standing in a sea of grass, provide shelter to a great variety of plants and animals, from the elusive leopard to the tiny dik dik. After stopping for your picnic lunch at such a kopje you will continue further into the park and go on a game drive. Driving time without game viewing 4-5 hours.
