Full day at the Serengeti National Park.

On this day you can wake up early for a sunrise game drive to try and catch up with the rare nocturnal animal species as well as the early risers among the diurnal ones. It is a nice time to see animals within a close distance as most game like to line up at the road sides to escape the morning dew. After breakfast at your camp you will then spend the day doing game drives for the whole day within the Serengeti National Park. The name Serengeti comes from a Maasai word ‘Siringit’ meaning plains without end and true to the name you will explore vast stretches of African Savannah in search of the many animals that Serengeti has to offer. Apart from the wildebeests you expect to spot other animals including elephants, lions, cheetahs, the elusive leopards, zebras, elands and a lot of resident and migratory birds. 02nd Overnight at Thorntree Camp or Serengeti Green Hills Camp.
