Lake Manyara – Serengeti
After breakfast, you start on your way to Serengeti National Park. A picnic lunch will be provided. On the way you will stop at the Olduvai Gorge where anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey made many significant discoveries, contributing to the theory that human life originated in Africa. After stopping for your picnic lunch on a kopje (rock outcropping) in Serengeti, you will continue further into the park for game drive. The Serengeti is the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world and boasts many species of plain animals from hare to the elephant. The name Serengeti comes from the Masai word “Siringet” referring to an endless plain. There are various pockets of water in the Serengeti where birds such as sacred ibis, goliath heron, yellow-billed stork, Egyptian geese, plovers, and other water birds gather. Aside from this, there are over 450 species of bird residents in the area, including kori bustard, lappet-faced vulture, marabou stork, grey heron, hamerkop, secretry bird, various sparrow hawks, many eagles, helmeted and crested guinea fowl, cuckoos, kingfishers (including pied and malachite) bee-eaters, rollers, hornbills, shrikes, bulbuls, sunbirds, finches…..simply too many to name!
