Day 6 Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti National Park Depart for the Serengeti National Park, famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains. There is more to Serengeti than large mammals. There are over 500 species of birds, and your guide will also introduce you to the small five’. In addition to a wide variety of mammals, over 300 species of birdlife have been recorded in this park. Enroute to Serengeti, you will drive through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Ndutu Plains. Kubu Kubu Tented Camp-Standard All in-DBBL
