Tanzania’s nature and animals at its Best – Serengeti National Park

Views: 508 Visited: Jun 2014 Reviewed: Jan 05, 2015

Coming from Lake Manyara National Park and passing through Ngorongoro to Serengeti was a very enjoyable Safari. We arrived quite late in Serengeti and this was because we were doing game drive as moving to the Central Part of Serengeti. We reached at Katikati Tented Camp which is owned by Wilderness Camps, very beautiful tented Camp. We went straight to refresh and have dinner knowing that we need to wake up very early the next day for one full day of game drive.

Our guide asked for a breakfast box and picnic lunch that means we were set to go away to the evening. Knowing the size of Serengeti and the fact that we were only staying two nights, we couldn't disagree with the plan. We left the camp and start a game drive. Everything was perfect from the animals to the landscape. We really enjoyed the morning part of game drive before our breakfast.

Serengeti is more than what I ever thought; sometimes you would ask yourself is this real? Seeing all these animals in their natural habitats? It is amazing. We saw almost all of big cats and beautiful landscape. We saw cheetahs, lions, leopard, wild cats and so many other animals on this first day. Apart from the big cats, we saw elephant, giraffes, antelopes, hippo and so many other animals. After a full day of game drive, we started moving back to our accommodation and rest.

The next day of Serengeti we decided to take it easy as we had the early morning experience of Serengeti. We had great breakfast at out tented camp, and at around 9 am we checked out of the hotel with our picnic lunch and started our game drive as we were moving toward Ngorongoro Conservation area. We had lunch on the way and a stop for Maasai Village. I didn't enjoy the visit to Maasai Village as it didn't look very authentic, but there are other Maasai village we visited earlier in Mto wa Mbu which were extremely good.

Overall experience with Serengeti was very good and if someone is planning to go to Serengeti I advice that to at least have two nights there. Is not fair at all to go to Serengeti and stay only for one night. I wouldn't recommend that.

It is also very important to have an experienced guide, the roads and ways can be tricky, and if you do not have a good guide this great place can turn to be a disappointment.

I will definitely go back to Serengeti, first of all I will need to go when it is good time for migration, and second I just feel that there is unfinished work there.
