This is the Serengeti National Park where the plains never end.

The driver will be in some contact with other drives around through the VHF radios fitted on all our vehicles so you are sure to see quite a lot of animal actions. Predators killing, predators chasing and antelopes running for their dear lives is a norm in the Serengeti and if you are lucky you will go out with a tale to tell. Serengeti is famous for many animal species, small and large alike. You expect to see elephants, zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, topis, hyenas, cheetahs, and the recently introduced black rhinos if you are lucky.

On arrival we shall descend to the floor for a full day of game drives breaking briefly for lunch by the hippo poolside picnic site. Game drives around Elerai Forests we shall see elephants and try out our luck to spot the leopard that way increasing our chances to spot the Big Five in one day. The Lions and the buffaloes we are almost sure of spotting them so why not go search for the cheetahs also.
