To minimize driving time, it is advisable to take a flight from Arusha to the Northern Serengeti. Why the  Northern Serengeti? After the heavy rains in April and May, in July  the ground begins to dry again, and green grass and water becomes scarce. Consequently, large herds of wildebeests accompanied by zebras begin to search for water and green grass. At this time of the year,  most of them will be found in the Grumenti and Mara river areas. Traveling between mid-July to October gives you a chance to see the river crossing. Imagine seeing thousands of wildebeest singing a song of solidarity while crossing the river!

The flight will leave Arusha at 9:00am and arrive in the Serengeti at 11:00am. In  Serengeti, your guide will be eagerly waiting show you the beauty of Tanzania. Your guide will then take you on a game drive on your way to the hotel for lunch. After lunch and a little rest, you will go for another game drive in the afternoon. You will  then return for dinner and your overnight stay at Mara under the canvas.
