    Day 2: Serengeti National Park (North)

    Stop At: Serengeti National Park Tanzania
    After breakfast, transfer to Arusha airstrip for your flight to Serengeti North which will depart around 7am and arrive at 10am for a game drive in Northern Mara. Serengeti, among other incredible wildlife and stunning views is famed for the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundred thousands of zebras, a frenzied bout of territorial conquests and mating happening from July-October. Witness an actual survival of the fittest as these animals plunge through crocodile-infested waters. The wildebeest produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 mile) pilgrimage begins again.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Acacia Migration Camp (Luxury)

    Day 3: Serengeti North (Kogatende)

    Stop At: Serengeti National Park Tanzania
    After breakfast, we depart for Serengeti North for a game drive viewing the great migration. River crossings at Kogatende starts in August as the mega herd settles into the area. Between August- October, game viewing is at its best with river crossings pretty much guaranteed every day. There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross back and forth over the river, following the rains and subsequent fresh grasses.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Acacia Migration Camp (Luxury)

    Day 4: Serengeti North (Kogatende)

    Stop At: Serengeti National Park Tanzania
    After breakfast, we will proceed for a full day game drive viewing the great migration at Mara area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area. The key feature is the Mara River and there is a great chance to see the herds cross the Mara River to the north on one day and back south a few days later. Please note that it can be very difficult to witness crossing and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to river and only decide to cross a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Acacia Migration Camp (Luxury)

    Day 5: Serengeti National Park (Central Seronera)

    Stop At: Serengeti National Park Tanzania
    After breakfast at the camp, we drive to Serengeti central, Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park and a world heritage site. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers an amazing game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner

Apart from the large mammals, Serengeti is also home to gaudy agama lizards; Rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite koppies. Wide varieties of dung beetle were found, and around 500 bird species have been recoded ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland, to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Acacia Central Camp

    Day 7: Serengeti Central (Cental Seronera)

    Stop At: Serengeti National Park Tanzania
    This is another full day game drive at Serengeti National Park, known for its healthy population of resident wildlife, particularly the "big five", named for the five most prized trophies taken by hunters:
    Lion: the Serengeti is believed to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part to the abundance of prey species. More than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem.
    African Leopard: these reclusive predators are commonly seen in the Seronera region but are present throughout the national park with the population of around 1,000.
    African Elephant: the herds are recovering from population lows in the 1980s caused by poaching and are largely located in the northern regions of the park.
    African Buffalo: considered by many to be the most dangerous of the big five, reportedly causing the most hunter deaths, with wounded animals reported to ambush and attack pursuers.
    Rhinoceros: this may refer to either black or white rhinoceros. Among big five game hunters, the black rhinoceros is preferred, although it is now critically endangered.
    Duration: 5 minutes
