Day 4: Transfer to the Serengeti

After a final morning game drive or walk, it’s time to head to the airstrip for your flight to the Serengeti. The light aircraft flies to the border between Kenya and Tanzania, where there will be a vehicle to drive you across the border, where normal immigration formalities occur. Continue on to a Tanzanian airstrip to board another light aircraft bound for the Southern Serengeti. The drive takes around one hour between the two airstrips. As you fly over the Serengeti, enjoy looking down onto the vast landscape of the Serengeti plains. You’ll arrive at the southern Serengeti airstrip in the late afternoon, where a guide will be ready to drive you to camp. The camp is a mobile camp, set up only during the wildebeest birthing season, mid-December to May, on the Southernmost extreme of the Serengeti’s short grass plains, the optimum place to view the annual birthing spectacle. The camp is small, with only 6 spacious luxurious tents, lavishly decorated and eminently comfortable.

Day 5 - 7: Explore the Serengeti

Witness the wonder of over 1.8 million wildebeest covering the mighty plains, many heavily pregnant and ready to give birth. In the space of 3 - 4 weeks between three to four thousand calves are born, all ready to stand within minutes. Watch them take their first steps on wobbly legs and follow their mother. Keep your eyes peeled for the predators, who are quick to take advantage of the vulnerability of the youngsters and mothers and feast on this glut of prey. Spend the next few days with your private guide, spotter and vehicle traversing the great plains, filled with an ever moving mass of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. The sheer numbers, sounds, sights, joys and horrors are mind-boggling. This is a safari that will be forever etched in your memory.
