Bush Savannah, seasonal swamps and giant baobab trees make up the landscape of this nature reserve and the park is probably one of the best places in East Africa to see elephants.

Inside the world’s biggest caldera you will see a diversity of wildlife ranging from black rhinos, grant and thomson gazelles, big prides of lions, leopards, zebras, elephants, buffaloes, spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs, impalas and more antelopes.

After an extensive game drive and picnic in the crater, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see.

 Day 4: Serengeti National Park 

Be one of only a few fortunate people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti Plains (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). Floating silently above the awakening bush, while spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and amazing landscape of Serengeti. Serengeti National Park is known for its unique sights, sounds and smells with stunning scenery, ever changing light and entertaining wildlife. The animals don’t work on any schedule, so it remains a surprise how many lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, cheetahs, hippos, antelopes, and many species of birds and reptiles we will be able to spot during our exciting game drive.

 Day 5: Serengeti National Park 

Today we will enjoy a full day game drive in the heart of african wildlife. During the short rain season in November and December the herds move from the Serengeti hills in the North to the plains in the South. During the longer rain season from April to June they return up North. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year. Yet, Samora Explorers´ guide will know where to locate the animals. With a little luck, we might even spot all of the Big Five today.

And thanks to this, the small park is able to support a large number of animal species and incredible bird life.
