“Bring a good set of binoculars or a spotting scope even. That 8X crap is no good here.” - Churchmanb

Vast. Expensive. Amazing.

We had a great experience in the Serengeti, though I'm still a bit miffed by their exorbitant prices compared with the rest of...you know...THE WORLD.
This is a bit of a difficult place to do a self-drive (I don't think they like it due to lost tour/guide money - understandable), but it CAN be done.
We drove through Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, and it was silly. Some things are too surreal to use a standard adjective, so I'm going with silly. I watched a cheetah "mark" a tree from ten feet away. Yikes. A pride of lions lounged just a few meters from the road and couldn't care less about our faces pressed flat against the Subaru's window.
The space is what separates the Serengeti from the pack.
There's a sparse, lonely feeling that defines a part of Africa here. It's wonderful in a way that catches you off guard. Enjoy.
