Serengeti Explorer

Introduction

Your safari begins at a luxury tented camp set amidst a picture-perfect landscape characterized by endless stretches of savanna interspersed by rocky outcrops of granite and acacia woodlands and home to giraffes, impalas, hippos, elephants, buffalos, lions and leopards.

We then travel to Grumeti, a private game reserve bordering Serengeti National Park typified by rolling hills, woodlands and rivers. Offering sensational game viewing year-round, this region is on the Great Migration route. Your private guide will be tracking giant herds of animals stalked by lions and other predators as they cross the Grumeti River.

It’s all about the wildlife here in the Serengeti. In between exciting game drives, you can relax and enjoy luxury accommodation and gourmet dining.

Day 2

Big Cats | Seronera River

Rise early for a morning game drive, enjoying the dawn chorus of birds, the soft magical light of early morning and the chance to see a hunting predator. The open plains are perfect for spotting cheetah, while Greg will be keeping a keen eye out for lions on the kop jes (rocky outcrops.) Following a relaxing afternoon at camp, we head out on an afternoon game drive, perhaps visiting the Seronera River where animals such as elephants, hippos, crocodiles, impala, topi and jackals gather to drink. Returning to camp, enjoy cocktails and story-telling by the fire.

Then relax back at camp with a luxurious spa treatment ahead of a late afternoon game drive. As day slowly turns to night the setting sun leaves crimson streaks across the sky and you have the chance to see predators begin their night search for prey.

Day 5 - 6

The Great Migration | River Crossings | Village Visits

During the Great Migration (generally July – November) our game drives will focus on thrilling river crossings, but the rich grazing lands around the river guarantee fabulous game viewing year-round, including the chance to see lots of baby animals during the birthing season from January – March. In between early morning and late afternoon game drives, relax by the pool, spot wildlife by the river from the lodge’s comfortable viewing platform, and visit a local village to learn about Tanzanian culture and see valuable community outreach programs in action.

Day 7

Hot Air Balloon | Guided Hike

Make the most of an incredible opportunity to take game viewing to new heights – literally, as you soar over the savanna and acacia forests in a hot air balloon marvelling at wildlife below. Floating just above the trees you will have bird’s eye views of crocodiles wallowing in the shallows, zebra grazing on the plains and lions hiding in the bushes as they stalk their prey. In the afternoon a guided hike leads to an Anti-Poaching Observation Point where you can meet game scouts and learn about the valuable role they play in protecting the wildlife of the Grumeti. Watch a beautiful sunset from high on the hill, then return to the villa for a farewell dinner served by the outdoor fire pit.
