Day 4 – Full day game drive in the Nduta area. Apart from the spectacle of the great mass of migrating animals, you will see wilderbeast calving, the babies up and running after three hours, as well as the ever present predators and scavengers.

Day 5 – After breaking camp, we leave Nduta, returning through the migrating herds and enter the “Serengeti” proper at Nabi Gate. As we progress across the "endless plains" we begin to understand the meaning of the Masai word "Serengetti" The short grass changes to the longer grass which in turn changes to woodlands as we near our destination of Seronera in the central Serengeti. Correspondingly the wildlife changes to resident animals with the herds now left behind. Overnight in tented camp.
