Day 3: NGONGORO CRATER  TO SERENEGETI

Today you will do the game drive  in the morning before you depart to the Serengeti National Park is one of the best wildlife destinations in Africa - attracting so many visitors that some roads become congested. However, only a small portion of this vast park is accessed by road by the majority of safari operators. Thus with a little know-how, it is possible to explore the Serengeti on an almost 'private' basis. Sizeable sections of the Serengeti National Park have been designated wilderness areas where only walking safaris are allowed. Three nights or more in one of these wildernesses can be an amazing part of a safari to northern Tanzania.

From about December to May the conditions in Kilimafeza, a wilderness area north- east of Seronera, become perfect for a walking mobile safari. By late May, and depending on the weather patterns and wildlife movements, this area becomes dry and hot, so the focus changes to Kogatende, a wilderness area south of Lamai, bordering the Mara River in northern Serengeti. This is best visited between about June to November.  If, before you travel, the weather patterns and wildlife movements mean that these recommendations change, then we will suggest that your itinerary is altered to get for you the best wildlife experience. So we ask that you retain a sense of adventure and flexibility when booking these walking safari mobile camps.

Day 4:

The Kilimafeza wilderness walking area, east of Seronera, is made up of rolling hills covered by acacia woodland. There are two possible mobile camp sites here, one in a valley near an ephemeral river, and the other set amongst kopjies (rocky outcrops). During a stay of three or more nights here you may move sites: walking the 8km distance from one to another whilst the camp team moves your accommodation.  Strictly speaking, these areas are not 'private. That said, at time of writing, only three safari operators have the authority to offer walking safaris in the 1,500km2 wilderness area east of Seronera so your time here is almost guaranteed to be exclusive. It's a remote and wild area, perfect for exploring on foot. Note that, within the area, these mobile walking camps are private; once booked, your trip is guaranteed to be exclusive and we will not ask you to mix with other travelers.

Day 5:

The Kogatende walking area, in northern Serengeti, also has two possible sites: one on the banks of the Mara River and shaded by fig and acacia trees, and the other a little away from the river, set between kopjies and surrounded by terminalia woodland. The area as a whole is perfectly situated to view the wildebeest migration as it crosses from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara and back. Walking safaris take you through woodland or along flat riverside plains where it's possible to position yourselves, waiting to watch a migration crossing. Kogatende is only a short drive from the game-drive area of northern Serengeti, so a game drive during your time here is also available on request. Each mobile camp is made up of canvas dome tents furnished with comfortable mattresses, a central mess tent and campfire, a bathroom tent and a bush kitchen. Two camp assistants take on all the camp chores. Meanwhile the camp chef prepares excellent meals over the fire. All you need do is enjoy exploring the area with your excellent guide and choose what to drink for sundowners! Each walking safari is led by an armed guide and accompanied by an armed national park ranger. Led by this knowledgeable and informative pair, you'll appreciate the change from being a casual observer in a game-drive vehicle to becoming part of the environment - it's a heady experience. The game viewing can be very good, but you will also learn about the smaller things too - the eco-system, animal behaviour, insects, birds and plants.

Days 6:

Game driving deeper still into the Serengeti, your destination is a remote wilderness where only very few safari operators and visitors are allowed. There are almost no roads here and so, leaving your vehicle at camp, you'll venture out each day on foot led by a professional walking safari guide. Exploring on foot heightens the senses and allows you to enjoy some of the smaller creatures found here. Although you won't often get as close to big game as you would from a safari vehicle, this experience can often be even more exhilarating and rewarding. After each walking safari you'll return to your Serengeti Walking Mobile Camp.
