We had a private camp in Masai Mara with just the guide and his staff. Luxury all the way and the only way to do a safari. Well worth the extra bucks. A known local guide can really get you into the grey area places and away from danger with the park rangers. We visited during migration and managed to see the big 5 of Africa. I was amazed at the birds as well. Nothing better than sitting on top of the Range Rover sun roof with camera in hand and a case of cold beer at your feet. We spent a week in the park and it never got boring. Certainly an experience of a lifetime.

Great safari sightings. Beautiful tents in the national parks. If doing Ngorongoro and Serengeti,ask for Freddie. Go with Thomson's for safari

We saw lots of animals both in number and variety. I really enjoyed being out in the vast grasslands with a lone tree here and there. The scenery was inspiring, I couldn't get enough of it. We went on a balloon safari. Wow was it an experience. The ballooning, the animals and the breakfast with champagne under a huge tree was a wonderful experience. Loved it.

The park was well maintained and all vehicles stayed on the designated roads which allowed a bit of privacy for animals.

A wonderful park.

We were there four our christmas holidays ! The park is amazing. Everyday we would wake up on animals sounds with a beautiful warming sun. The migration was already finished but
we saw a lot of animals : impalas, black rhino, babouns, hippo, wilder beast, lions, and many many other animals, birds and insects.
While sitting in the car for the whole day you don't feel time passing. It's a must to visit this park at least once in a lifetime.

Traveling with an OAT group we spent four nights in the tented camp in Sergenti National Park.
I loved the camp experience--excellent food, a campfire each evening, animals calling at night,
a hot shower each day, and a larger than expected tent. If this is roughing it, I would like to rough it all the time. The highlight each day of our game drives was the migration of zebra and wildebeest. I had read about the migration over a number of years and did not expect to see how extensive it was in person--long lines slowly moving up and down the Serengeti enjoying the lush grass that provided their food. There were plenty of lions as well as a leopard and a couple of cheetahs. Elephants in large groups were observed each day. Large numbers of a horned animals in particular Impalas as well
as herds of Cape Buffalo. Ronald, our guide, started each day with the observation--we are going
fishing, lets see what we get. We drove from 7:00-12:30 each morning, rested for a few hours and then did a short drive in the afternoon from 3:30 to 5:30 or 6:00. During our stay each after noon the showers came providing a welcome infusion of moisture for the grasses and trees so needed by the animals. Hippos in a watering hole including six or seven youngsters, elephants bathing in the river, hyenas laying along side the road, eagles, stork, and hornbills throughout. I could have stayed for
another week to see the incredible numnber of animals and birds that live in the Serengeti.
