day

6

Serengeti National Park | Ndutu

  • The Great Migration should be just north-west of Ngorongoro Crater and you'll drop down onto the southern Serengeti/Ndutu plains. With a packed lunch, you'll spend the whole day driving and looking for herds and some predator interaction. It's hard to take in the vast numbers of wildebeest dotting the green plains of the southern Serengeti.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner 
Transport: Included

day

7

Serengeti National Park | Ndutu

  • Spend your first full day on the plains among the Wildebeest herds. You'll also go looking for some predator interaction. It's easy to find cats with the migration present, the wildebeest, zebra and gazelles occupy so much space that if you see an open circle you know that there must be a predator at its centre. This is the ideal time to follow cheetah or lion to see what they're up to during the calving season.
  • Overnight at Kirurumu Ndutu Camp, with your meals included.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner 
Transport: Included

day

8

Lake Masek and Matiti Hill

  • Overnight at Kirurumu Ndutu Camp, with your camp fire and meals included.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner 
Transport: Included

day

9

Serengeti National Park | Moru

  • Your safari in the south-western Serengeti ends at Moru. The top end of the migration might be here towards the end of March and it's a wonderful area – with or without the migration.
  • If you're lucky you might bump into rhino, but good lion and leopard sightings are likely all year round at Moru.
  • Overnight at one of our favourite camps, Dunia, with your meals and drinks included. 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks
Transport: Included

day

10

Serengeti National Park | Seronera Valley

Driving north from Moru towards the Seronera Valley, we'll look for one of three leopards we know are in the area. Fundi, Mawe and our favourite, Hatari, can be found along the tree line that runs with the Seronera river system just west of the airstrip.
  • Overnight at Dunia Camp with your meals and drinks included. 

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks
Transport: Included

day
