Lake Manyara National Park is famous for its greenish vegetation round the year, with its popular acacia trees which most of the time lions climb to them to acquire the shade.

Thereafter you will continue with your safari to Serengeti National Park with game drive en-route. The park is teaming with stunning wildlife and it is thought that over 3 million large mammals roam the plains. The extensive grasslands are interspersed with kopjes, which are rock outcrop islands in the flat plain, each with its own wildlife communities.

Day 3: Sunrise Adventure in Serengeti National Park.
Very early in the morning you will have a game drive to Serengeti National Park. The advantage of an early morning game drive is to see a large amount of different wildlife and a wide change to see predators hunting a prey by chance. The game drive will take about 2 or 3 hours before driving back to the campsite for breakfast and a short rest.

After a short rest you will continue with your game drive to search for missing game on the previous game drive. Your driver guide will be searching the wildebeest and zebras migration. Normally but not certain in April the migration path moves west towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti. The long grass plains and woodlands provide food. At this time of the year it becomes harder to track the migration due to the same reasons of the heavy rains and the best place is Seronera and Kusini.

It is the migration of large mammals for which Serengeti it perhaps most famous. Over 1.5 million wildebeest and about 400,000 zebras take park in this migration which essentially involves three famous and important conservation areas, Serengeti and Ngorongoro in Tanzania and the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya. It is a clockwise migratory movement during which sequence, the animals start arriving at the eastern Serengeti short grass plains in late November – December, where calving of the wildebeests takes place. At the end of the long rains, the migration heads westwards and then turns north to reach Masai Mara reserve in late August- September. In the afternoon you will have time for your picnic lunch at picnic site follows with a short rest. The game drive will continue up to late afternoon and thereafter transferred back to the lodge/ Serenora campsite for hot shower, dinner and overnight.
