After breakfast, drive to Serengeti National Park through Klein’s Camp gate. Visit one of the most famous wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the Serengeti National Park. The word ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’, which describes the park’s 5,600 square mile boundary. Yet for its sprawling area, the Serengeti does not disappoint when it comes to rich game-viewing. Annually, from May to December, millions of animals embark on a migration which brings them from central Serengeti to Kenya’s Maasai Mara and back again in an incredible spectacle. Even during the ‘down-time’, vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle roam here, along with groups of elephant, giraffe and buffalo while lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas and jackals stalk their meals. Spend two days exploring the eastern and northern Serengeti for unmatched big cats sighting and much more. Our camps Serengeti Heritage North/Central is in the heart of it all, which allows movement to explore the big cat’s territories.

Accompanied throughout by an enticing guide and a local guide from the area, guests have the opportunity to engage with the Bushmen and learn all about their time-honored hunting techniques, survival skills, food preparation, and cultural norms. A veritable step back in time, this is an undeniably authentic cultural journey into rural Tanzania that reveals the untold world of these charismatic people.

Amongst the world’s last remaining hunter-gatherer tribes inhabiting the scrubby bushland, Hadzabe men search for food alone and return home with golden honey, sweet fruit, or hearty wild game when, and if available. Women go out in large groups and forage for bright berries, baobab fruit, and tubers, depending on availability. In the rainy, wet season, sweet honey is the main staple of their diet along with colorful fruit, tubers, and sometimes meat.

Adjusting their diets to the seasons this tribe is incredibly skilled, selective, and opportunistic seekers and searchers. They have only themselves to rely on to feed their families and tribe. After return to the lodge for brunch then proceed to Lake Manyara and check into your accommodation – Africa Gambling camp – for dinner and overnight.

Leave the camp after an early breakfast and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park for game viewing. The park is home to the famous tree-climbing lions, elephants, giraffe, buffalo, big troops of baboon and more than 400 species of birds have been recorded, even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 50 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and giraffes sitting down.

After lunch leave the park and head to Arusha and your guide will drop you at your hotel or Kilimanjaro international airport for your onward connection.
