Day 6 – 7 Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is a huge ecosystem with 5700 sq. mi falling on the Tanzanian side of the border and one day is never enough to soak in the richness of the iconic park.

The migration cycle is very much dependent on rains so get in touch with your guides to confirm the exact location of the place where the action unfolds. Unknown to many, Tanzania has two rainy seasons and in the short rainy season(Nov-Dec) the herds make the journey from north Serengeti to the south. In the long rainy season(April-June) the herds are back in the north. Your overnight will be at Acacia Luxury tented camp
