Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha to Serengeti national park

Wake up early morning at planet lodge, after breakfast guide will drive you toward the famous Masai endless plains through a comfortable tarmac road about 335 km barely 5-6 hours to reach Serengeti park gate. Serengeti National Park is absolutely huge. If you are intent on viewing the Great Migration then it is probably more critical to stay in the right region for your travel dates than to deliberate too long about the style of camp or hotel you are looking for. This park is so big that if you get the location wrong, you will not see the herds. Enjoy half-day game drive the central grass plains of Serengeti.

Meal full board, at Katikati tented camp

Day 2: Full day game drive at Serengeti Seronera

Wake up early in the morning and have a delicious breakfast, and then enjoy the morning game drive and amazing pictures with wildlife and grass plains. There is such a variety of species in the Serengeti as to be too great to number here, which is why it is such an integral part of a Tanzania safari. Apart from wildebeest migration, other animals commonly found in the park include topi, eland, hartebeest, buffalo, elephant, caracal, serval, bat-eared fox, hyrax, genet, hares, porcupine, aardvark, giraffe, jackal, mongoose, crocodile, monitor lizard, aardwolf, many kinds of primates including baboons, vervet and colobus monkeys, and over 500 species of bird.
