Day 7: Tanzania Bush Camps Mara River Camp, Northern Serengeti.

Breakfast. The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy 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 but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best. Meals and overnight at Tanzania Bush Camps – Mara River Camp or according to herds location.
Optional Safari Activities: This morning you can do Balloon safari over the Serengeti on request and incur extra charges. A hot air balloon ride above the plains of the Serengeti is truly magical. Witnessing wildlife from above at a slow pace is like no other experience you could ever imagine; you really feel as though you are in a live episode of National Geographic. Though not inclusive in our package, if you have the time to embark on this incredible experience, we highly recommend it.

Day 8: Escarpment Luxury Lodge.

Breakfast. The half day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park in the area and Seronera with lunch boxes, before departing for Ngorongoro. Arrive in the late afternoon and proceed on to Escarpment Luxury Lodge for Dinner and Overnight.
Most safari game drives concentrate along the Seronera River and with excellent reason: lion sightings are common and the riverbank is home to one of the world’s densest population of leopards. The sausage trees and umbrella thorns rank among the best places in Africa to search for leopards – there are too few tall trees for these elusive creatures to be well-hidden. Several lion prides in the area have also taken to the trees regularly in recent years, particularly during the rains. A very special sight!
