Day 4: andBeyond Serengeti Under Canvas, Serengeti National Park

At this point you would say goodbye to your driver guide and board your scheduled service to the Serengeti National Park. On arrival into the Serengeti, you will be met by your Camp’s safari vehicle and driver guide. It’s a short game drive to And-beyond Serengeti Under Canvas Camp. On arrival you will be escorted to Reception, given a short safari briefing, before being shown your room. After lunch head out on your first game drive in the Serengeti National Park.
The Serengeti together with Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Park form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Masai warrior and some cattle to the picture, and the conversation need go no further. The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. But that is not where the game viewing ends; large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland to mention but a few. Aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Serengeti plains has become almost essential, and you can even do a horse riding safari.

Early morning game drives are the best to catch the animals at their most active or just relax in the camp. Later, on your afternoon game drive, the chances to spot Africa’s famous Big Five abound, thanks to the park’s density of both predators and prey.
