Today we drive to the great Serengeti National Park, the world’s most famous game park. En route, we’ll stop and visit Oldupai Gorge (often misspelled as Olduvai), commonly referred to as the “Cradle of mankind”. This site is where the Leakeys made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries, including discovering the remains of several early hominids estimated to be around 3.7 million years old. Oldupai is the Maasai word for the wild sisal plant (Sansevieria ehrenbergii), which grows in the gorge. After a picnic lunch, we’ll continue on to an exciting game drive in the Serengeti. We will arrive at Serengeti Simba Lodge, named after the lion (simba in Swahili), which sits high on a hill with endless vistas of the great Serengeti plains. The ‘Serengeti Migration’, when millions of ungulates make their annual trek through the Serengeti eco-system, passes the lodge twice a year, and if we are lucky, since it often begins in June-July, we will be there to witness it! In any case, animal sightings right from your window are likely.

After breakfast, we’ll continue with both morning and afternoon game drives in the great Serengeti National Park.

Here you are certain to get up close and personal with the “Big Five” (Lions, Elephants, Rhinos, Leopards, and Cape Buffalo), if you haven’t already, and hosts of other iconic and lesser known species. Given the vast terrain, weather patterns, and migratory patterns of the innumerable species, many animals of the Serengeti are constantly on the move. This makes for an adventurous game drive! Our drives will depend on the move of the migrants; our expert naturalist guides know very well how to locate the herds. We’ll have a picnic lunch in the bush and return to the lodge in time for afternoon tea. After a stretch and perhaps a dip in the pool, we’ll meet in the dining room for dinner and great views of the Serengeti plains, followed by a traditional dance performance by a troupe from the nearby Waikoma village of Robanda.
