Day 5 – Full Day in the Serengeti National Park

Leisurely breakfast then departs for a full day of game drives in the Serengeti. Focus on a safari in the Northern Tanzania circuit during this season should be on the Serengeti southern short grass plains and Ngorongoro ecosystem. The annual wildebeest migration arrives on these plains from December onwards.

It is here where they congregate and give birth to thousands of calves in February and March. These mineral rich plains are where the great herds stay for as long as feeding permits. Apparently, the iron and zinc found in the fodder of these plans are what the wildebeest are after.

The movement of almost two million wild animals is the driving force of the ecology of most of the Serengeti eco-system. Predators follow these herds like sharks following a shoal of fish. Great wildlife viewing is guaranteed because the young animals make easy prey. Spend your day in this park with “plans that never end”.
