DAY 7 – NGORONGORO NP – SERENGETI NP
After breakfast at the Lodge, we will start our drive past the unique and gorgeous Ngorongoro Conservation Area to the Serengeti National Park. The warm and inviting colors of the very core of African wildlife are a symbol of the Serengeti National Park. The most intriguing, yet amazing natural legend of the timeless African landscape rolls before your eyes when the wildebeest embark on the most important journey of their lives: the amazing migration, which is often referred to as the “Eighth wonder of the world.” The height of their expedition is a blast for all the spectators, since there is practically no need for a game drive. As far as the eye can see, thousands upon thousands of animal’sherds when the migration reaches its pinnacle; from tall and graceful giraffes, which feed on the tops of trees and pay no attention to the visitors, to bulky, yet sweet hippos, which trim the grasses in the serene nights, jumping antelopes and gazelles and the most respected group of animals: predators. You will be able to spot lean cheetahs and shy leopards, foraging hyenas, which laugh their way through the plains, powerful crocodiles in the Grumeti river, which pray discreetly for the sick and weak animals at the crossing and last but not least, the king himself; the lazy lion, slowly marching through the savannah and letting the “mistress” hunt for fresh meals. We will then head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area. This area provides a variety of habitats for wild animals, the most important of them being the Seronera river, which is the main attraction for herds of game and families of predators, because it is a rich source of water to quench their thirst. For this reason, the great majority of animal species in the Serengeti National Park can be found here and thus it would be a sin not to stop and watch the animals in their natural habitat. We will drive south of the Seronera river, along the Sogore river circuit to look for Thompson’s gazelles, topes, ostriches and possibly also predators, such as lions or cheetahs. We recommend a visit to the Visitors Center. It is a great spot to see some wildlife or buy information leaflets or maps of the area. You can buy a snack or drinks at the center too and take a walk around a kopje in the vicinity or cool in the picnic area, where we will eat our picnic lunches and the giant acacia trees will protect you from the hot sunrays. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Sopa Lodge in the heart of the Serengeti National Park .
