Searching for wildlife in the Serengeti

Serengeti, Tanzania

It took over six hours to drive in the land cruiser from Arusha to the Seronera Campsite in the Serengeti National Park. It is a huge wildlife area, covered mostly by grasslands and a few rocky outcrops (kopjes). Driving along bumpy dirt roads, with the top up, searching trees, grasses and river beds for lions, hippos, cheetahs and hyenas. Watching thousands of grazing gazelles, herds of zebras, solitary giraffes, water buffalo and wonderful wildebeests. The camps we stayed at had no fences! During the night we heard all sorts of animal noises…so who knows what creatures were wandering about…it certainly wasn’t recommended to go to the toilet alone in the night! A few highlights were finding a lion in a tree, seeing our first wild cheetahs, watching the sunset through the acacia trees, viewing the vastness of the Savannah, and the abundance of beautiful birds and lizards.
