Day 1: Arrive Nairobi – Serengeti/Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Upon early morning arrival at Nairobi JKIA, you will be met by your host and guide, Warren Samuels and a Wild Vision Adventures representative, who will guide you to your connecting flight to Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania. At Kilimanjaro airport, you will connect with your scheduled flight to Serengeti South airstrip where Serian Camp guides will meet you. A 30-minute game drive into Kusini Serian Camp completes your travel day.
Serian Kusini Camp (Package) – Serian, meaning 'peaceful, calm or serene' in the Maa language, aptly describes one's first impressions of this very exclusive luxury tented camp. The camp is small, consisting of only six stylish safari tents situated in an idyllic location amongst towering Acacia Umbrella thorn trees in a remote section of the Western Serengeti. Here one really gets a sense of feeling that you are the only ones sharing in this great wilderness.
Day 2 – 7: At Serengeti/Ngorongoro Conservation Area
The early morning game drive reveals the very heart of the Serengeti’s magic, vast tracts of open grasslands stretching from horizon to horizon filled with wildebeests and their newborn calves. Undoubtedly, one of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife events! During a short 2-3 week period over 250,000 wildebeest calves are born and one might be lucky enough to witness and photograph one of these births.
This multitude of grazers supports a large number of predators such as lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas, all of which are seen regularly here. You will also spend time searching for the rare and endangered Cape hunting dogs commonly known as 'Wild dogs'. These animals are rarely seen today and any sightings or photographs of them are indeed priceless.
Game drives are in comfortable and well-outfitted four-wheel drive vehicles manned by experienced and knowledgeable local guides. Sumptuous picnic breakfasts and lunches are carried on board the vehicles together with all sorts of refreshments. Picnic stops are carefully planned by your guides to maximize on the best views of the open plains and wildebeest migration. You then retire to your camp at sunset for a drink and a tale or two around an iconic African campfire followed by a candlelit dinner.
During your stay at Kusini, Warren will be doing informal photo workshops and slide shows on photography and the wildebeest migration on some of the evenings. He will also be showing some of the latest wildlife documentaries that he has filmed over the last two years with short talks on “The Making of”. Over night at Serian Kusini Camp.
Day 8: Serengeti/Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Nairobi
