Day 1: Serengeti National Park

You’ve been dreaming of your Tanzanian safari for so long and the day when it begins has finally arrived. We’ll greet you, give you a quick rundown on what happens next and answer
your questions. Then we’ll take you out to discover what this incredible country has to offer.
You’ll never forget the time you spend in the Serengeti. Perhaps it will be the sightings of leopard and cheetah as they show their skills as feared hunters of the plains and valleys.
Or that unforgettable moment when an elephant family feeds alongside your vehicle, so close you could almost reach out and touch them. Or the first time you hear a lion roar. Then there are the herds of buffalo, zebra or wildebeest so large that they move as one across your horizon, like a river. All of these experiences are possible in the Serengeti, one of the most beautiful parks in Africa.
