Game drive in the Serengeti
With big cats aplenty, giraffes towering above the plains, hippos wallowing in muddy pools and buffalo snorting and chomping on the grasslands, there's never a dull moment in the Serengeti. The savannah stretches seemingly endlessly into the distance, dotted with flat topped acacia trees, elephants roaming and herds of wildebeest zig-zagging their way in search of fresh grass. Game drives here are best in the early hours of the morning and late afternoon, when the wildlife is most active and the light is best for photography. During the heat of the day you will typically return to your camp for lunch and a siesta, or travel to a different area for your afternoon safari. No matter the time of year, it would be hard to be disappointed by the breathtaking scenery and diversity of wildlife here.
