Day 1: Arusha - Serengeti National Park
Welcome to join the 4 days Tanzania Safari! In the morning, your driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel at Arusha on schedule and then drive about 6.5 hours to Serengeti National Park located 336 km (208 mi) away. You will have a pre-packed picnic lunch on the way. After arrival in the afternoon, we will have an exciting game drive in the park.

As one of the world's greatest wildlife sanctuaries, Serengeti National Park harbors a magnificent diversity and amount of animals, from the famous Big Five including lion, leopard, elephant, black rhinoceros, and buffalo to over 500 species of birds such as lesser flamingos, vultures, and Masai ostrich. The Seronera River meandering across the Central Serengeti is the primary source of fresh water for the animals. Most of the animals can be seen from there. When the safari ends in the evening, we will return to the camp and enjoy dinner.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park Safari
Today, in the company of the experienced driver guide, you will enjoy a full day game viewing at Central Serengeti National Park, the highlight of 4 days Tanzania Safari. Serengeti in Masai language means “endless plains” and the most spectacular natural event ever taking place on this amazing plain is its annual migration of millions of wildebeests and other ungulates. The migration has lasted for millions of years. Every year when the dry season starts in late May, the herd treks north through Serengeti to Masai Mara in Kenya in search of fresh water and pasture. They will move back to Serengeti at the beginning of the rainy season in late October. Your driver guide will find the best locations for you to view wild animals.
