Arusha – Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
In the morning we switch to safari vehicles and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo (‘Mosquito Creek’) and entering the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Passing into the park, we drive around the Crater’s rim down onto the plains of the Serengeti. A luscious green after the rains and brown and burnt in the droughts, this is home to a vast variety of grazing animals, predators and birdlife. Flatter and larger than the Masai Mara, the Serengeti is enormous. In fact, the name derives from the Masai word Siringitu, meaning ‘the place where the land moves on forever’. Here, game viewing is a fabulous activity and spending your nights sleeping in the designated but unfenced campsite where lion and hyena roam freely, is an enthralling and extremely memorable experience.
