The Wonders of the Serengeti
This add on to Serengeti Bushtops is the perfect complement to our African Sampler safari. Derived from the Maasai language meaning "endless plains" - the very name, Serengeti, fires the imagination. Roam the great plains of the Serengeti in search of the migratory herds of zebra and wildebeest and their territorial predators, lion, leopard and cheetah.
1. Serengeti Bushtops
Tanzania, Serengeti National Park
Located in one of the world’s most magical settings, Serengeti Bushtops is designed to blend into its surroundings. The entire camp is completely under canvas and uses solar power for most of its energy needs. The spacious tents are secluded havens of privacy and calm. Open on two sides to the great outdoors, the tents have generous living spaces. Sink into a lounger and unwind as you await drinks from your private butler or soak in your private hot tub and gaze out at the passing wildlife. At the heart of the camp is the reception, lounge and dining areas, incorporating the bar, library and unique wine cellar. The deck and pool provide additional spaces to relax during the heat of the day. A highlight of each day is savoring a gourmet meal and sharing safari stories with fellow guests.
Day 1. Maasai Mara, Kenya / Serengeti, Tanzania
After breakfast at Mara Bushtops, you are transferred by your camp guide and vehicle to the airstrip with a picnic lunch for your short flight to Migori. Here you are met by your Tanzanian driver and transferred across the Tanzanian border to Tarime airstrip for your onward flight to the great Serengeti. (BLD)
Day 2. Serengeti
Depart early in the morning for your first game drive of the day. Collect a gallery of thrilling images as the morning unfolds: a lioness relaxing after her morning hunt; alert elephants carefully guarding their young as they traverse the bush; a startled warthog running with tail erect; ungainly herds of wildebeest grazing alongside zebra. Relax at camp until the day cools down and the animals become more active before setting out for your afternoon game drive. (BLD)
Day 3. Serengeti
During morning and afternoon game viewing activities, your ranger continues to lead you to the locations where you are able to observe the wildlife quietly and at your leisure. Watch the many species of game grazing in close proximity to your camp as the sun sets over the savanna. (BLD)
Day 4. Serengeti / Depart
It is time to savor your last morning in Tanzania. After a short flight to Arusha, you’ll enjoy lunch and a place to relax at a day room reserved for your use at a charming lodge. Later tonight, you are transferred to the airport for your onward arrangements. (BL)
