Day 3: Full day Jeep Safaris in Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch
After breakfast you go deeper into the Serengeti in search of the migration. The Great Wildebeest migration is one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World”. Nowhere in the world there is a movement of animals as immense as this.
The principle players are the wildebeest, followed by Thomson’s gazelle, zebra and eland. Huge herds of these animals roam the Serengeti plains in search of water. The lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs and lesser predators await the annual coming of the migration with eager anticipation.
The annual 800-km journey is a cyclical pilgrimage which has no real beginning or end. The precise timing of the migrations changes annually and is an unpredictable and spontaneous natural event depending mainly on the rainfall pattern of each year. Because of the global climate changes, the annual pattern changes but a general trend can be observed. Overnight Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp or Serengeti Tanzania Bush Camp

There are very few places in the world where you can find such a large population of wildlife throughout the year.
Deep within the crater, enclosed by towering walls, you have a good chance of spotting ‘The Big 5’: Lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. For the latter two you need a bit of luck as they tend to shy away.
