Serengeti National Park

Safari in Swahili simply means a "journey". Nowadays it has become a synonym for wildlife viewing in the African bush. We explore the endless plains to discover the vast expanse and wilderness of Serengeti. Indulge, take your time and relish each moment spotting wildlife. We search for the most wonderful natural phenomenon, the Grand Migration of thousands and thousands of wildebeest and zebra crossing the plains in search of water and food. Crossing fingers that we will see this, being something so natural and not manmade, we cannot guarantee, but hopefully we'll experience it. Enjoy and cherish morning and afternoon game drives through the Park. Meals and overnigh at Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp / Serengeti Sopa Lodge

The elephant found are the lone males. A soda lake attracts water birds, including flamingos and is a suitable place for predators to make their kill.
