You’ll then drive to Tarime Goldmine Airstrip for a 30-minute flight to an airstrip near your camp in Serengeti National Park.

A natural extension of the Masaai Mara, Serengeti National Park’s borders are crossed annually by one and a half million wildebeest, 250,000 zebras and 500,000 gazelles between July and October, followed by the carnivores of mostly lions and hyenas.

Overnight Location: Luxury Camp in Serengeti National Park
Distance: None

Day 5 Explore Serengeti National Park on two safaris
