The size of the Serengeti National Park is beyond our vision, hence often referred to as the endless plains. With a massive size of 30,0000 km2, and home to the second largest migration of the world, you can only imagine, the rich diversity of wildlife here.
Is this it? Is the iconic park only worth a visit for its animals and game drives all day long?
If you will be spending two days or more in Serengeti National Park, there is plenty to explore beyond your expectations. Here are our top 5 things to do on this natural wonder, beyond driving safaris.
Feast in the Bush
Many tourists are given packed lunch boxes or prefer to dine at the dedicated lodge. We recommend to go for the Bush Lunch/ Dinner option where you can enjoy warm food, right in the middle of the National Park. Your surrounding is accentuated with lanterns, Maasai guards and the aroma of live Swahili cooking will surely become one of the highlights of the trip. Surprise your spouse, especially if you on a honeymoon safari or are celebrating a special day.
Go for Nature’s Walk
Walking with an armed ranger, the Maasai and a naturalist is one-of-a-kind of an experience in the world’s natural wonder. Walking Safaris in the Serengeti are mostly organized early morning or evening where you can soak in nature’s goodness and get to learn about Flora and Fuana. Nature walks make for perfect family or a group excursion.
Serengeti features distinct qualities during the day and night. Although the day is brimming with plenty of wildlife action, the night is a real treat for the lucky ones. Certain safari camps and lodges such as Asanja Africa and Melia Serengeti offer facilities for star gazing. What a real treat it is to sit on your car bonnet, by the bon fire and gaze at the sky full of a million glittery stars.
Hot-Air balloon Ride
Waking up at 4:00 am and paying a handsome price for this gold experience is fully worth it when you find yourself up in the air, amid the African serenity. It’s a unique experience to spot animals, above the vast plains and flowing rivers, especially the moving migration. The champagne breakfast post the flight, is the show-stealer of the entire morning.
Sundowners on the Kopjes
If you are really looking for a unique, natural place in the Serengeti, you must go to the Kopjes- distinctly spotted as gigantic rocky formations rising above central Serengeti amid an island of grass. While they are a favourite of lion’s pride, it is also possible to organize romantic and private sundowners while you enjoy the magical sunset view and reflect on your safari.
