Day 3. Nduara Loliondo

Head out for an early walk across wide open plains and acacia-wooded slopes in search of the little things of the bush.

Day 7. Serengeti Safari Camp

You'll be surprised by the fabulous mix of birdlife in this area as well as the carpet of flowers that develops with the first rains. In early February the wildebeest calving will peak and, with it, increased chances of predator activity. Evening game drives in this area can be good for leopard, as well as other small African cats like Serval, African Wild cat or even Caracal if you're extremely lucky.

Day 7.

Day 8. Depart Serengeti for Arusha

After a leisurely breakfast, pack your bags and take a short last game drive back to the airstrip to catch your return flight back to Arusha and on home.
