The game viewing may start as early as 6:30 am morning and proceed to 9:30 am where there will be a break for breakfast in the bush lands.

Spending 2 days at Serengeti National Park may give you enough time to follow wildebeests and other grazers in migration. At least animals philosophies allow them to live health without over-exploiting resources. Wildebeests and other grazers will be harvesting grasses as they journey away in herds while hunters of different kinds and techniques reducing the weak and sick ones. Whether an individual get eaten or not you could say there is some symbiosis in Serengeti. Our trips around this parts are organized in a way that we could dodge the blazing hot parts of the day and enjoy our self under some shade. Early mornings and late evenings are the best time to catch animals in a serious action like hunting, mating, fighting, etc. Animals you are likely to see include; Grazers, browsers and mixed feeders: Elephants, Black Rhino, Giraffes, Buffalo, Elands, Kudus, Gazelles, wildebeests etc in good number. Predators are also well represented by lions, leopards, wild dogs, hyena, jackals etc. Those that are arboreal like baboons could depend on large rocks (kopjes) instead of trees for refuge at the plains.
