DAY 4
SERENGETI

The finale of this safari are the endless plains of the Serengeti. A vast eco system that continues into Kenya and is contiguous with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Serengeti offers a huge variety of experiences. On route we stop off at the Cradle of Mankind - Olduvai Gorge. Here work started by the Leakey family continues today as a fossil history dating back millions of years continues to be explored. From here we game drive our way into our mobile camp for the evening.

DAY 5
SERENGETI

Despite being a mobile camp that moves seasonally for the best game experiences, our classic safari accommodation is remarkably comfortable and a perfect home for our last two nights. Set in the seasonally best places we head out for game drives to search for a variety of predators and other fauna that the Serengeti has to offer. There are also a range of habitats to Kopje (rock outcroppings) dotted plains to thick wood lands and hippo pools. A full day is spent exploring and game driving.

DAY 6
SERENGETI / DEPART

In the morning we head out for a final game drive on the way to the airport where we say a fond farewell to our guides before catching the schedule flight to Arusha. Here we are met and have time for some retail therapy before heading to a well appointed lodge for a day to freshen up and re pack pre departure. Connections can also be arranged to onward destinations such as Zanzibar, Western or Southern Tanzania or even further afield.
