Day by Day Overview
After breakfast, you will depart Arusha towards the Serengeti National Park and have lunch at a picnic spot en-route. Depending upon the time of year, you might even have the chance to witness the great migration with hundred thousands of wildebeests, zebras and Thomson’s gazelles. During the small rainy season in October and November, you will typically see these herds moving from the Kenyan Masai Mara through the north west of the Serengeti to the plains in the south. After the great rainy season in April, May and June, the herds slowly travel back through the western and north western part of the Serengeti. With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes. Your guide will try his utmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see them from the best spot in the national park. Naturally, the migration also attracts predators and with luck you might see a kill in action. You will spend the night at a recommended campsite.
