Serengeti National Park

Explore Serengeti National Park

Today, we explore the vast expanse of the Serengeti, where the wildlife
sightings are typically at their peak in the early mornings and late afternoons, when the temperature cools. Serengeti, in fact, is the Maasai word that means “endless plain.”

Our mobile tented camps are set up based on the animals’ seasonal migration patterns and are in place before you arrive. Each is outfitted with camp beds, complete with linens, blankets, pillows, and en suite facilities (shower and flush toilets) with hot water. You have your own verandah with wash basin and two director’s chairs. There is a dining tent with tables and chairs. Spend the night listening to the sounds of the animals in the distance.

That last one is a misnomer. The sounds are not at a distance; more like right between the cabins and sloshing around in the water reservoir. I don’t hold with elephants being all that bright – but they certainly are cunning. We were also warned about leaving shoes outside to dry – seems like they make good hyena toys.

And the Leopard ….
She was up in the tree, stocking her larder. Nature is what it is and I refuse to feel sorry for the gazelles who wind up being dinner…
