and also Lake Manyara National Park

1 night at Serengeti Migration Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania
Drive into the Serengeti National Park
you'll first drive across wide open plains and then through acacia bush before stopping at a very comfortable Serengeti Migration Camp. Perfect for a one night stop whilst on route to the northern Serengeti, Migration Camp is located for the great migration
in the months of July and August a two or three night stay could be considered here. Throughout the year this camp is a good base to explore more remote north and eastern parts of Serengeti National Park. The experience of your superior guide
and the flexibility of travelling in a private safari vehicle will help you to get the best out of the abundant wildlife.
4 nights at Sayari Mara Camp (full board & activities) | Serengeti Migration Area, Tanzania
Depart Migration Camp in the morning with a packed lunch and drive deeper into Serengeti National Park. Few vehicles venture this far north, so you can enjoy real wilderness. In August, the wildebeest migration will usually be passing through this area. Sayari Camp is one of the most northerly camps in the Serengeti – for many its remoteness is its real attraction. Sayari is only a short drive away from the Mara River
. From about August through to October the wildebeest herds often cross this great river in large and frenzied numbers – being nearby offers you a very good chance of witnessing one of these spectacular events.
After your last morning on safari, bid goodbye to your guide from the nearest airstrip before flying to Kilimanjaro International Airport. Then either continue onto one of our beach add-on trips
, or catch a flight to Nairobi to connect with your overnight flight to London with Kenya Airways
After an amazing safari, and armed with reams of great photographs and memories, you arrive at London Heathrow early in the morning, with ample time to continue your journey home.
