Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle.
Early morning game drive for sunrise with the breakfast box game drive in central Serengeti back to the Camp for a hot lunch and afternoon relaxing, late afternoon game drive, evening back to the lodge/camp for dinner, and overnight Acacia Seronera Luxury Camp.
A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 miles) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again.

Last November I decided I wanted to celebrate my big 35th birthday with a safari in Tanzania and my dad onboard. I was looking for a father-daughter adventure of a lifetime and that's exactly what we got!
Our safari surpassed all expectations. It was planned to suit our needs, with good communication and service in the run-up to the trip. The trip itself was superb in every way from beginning to end.
1Africa has always evoked emotion and a sense of nostalgia. Its dramatic landscapes, inspiring wilderness, captivating people, intriguing cultures, sumptuous food and vibrant music provide the perfect setting for an unforgettable celebration.
