5 Day Luxury Serengeti Safari Itinerary

Day 1

Day 1 sees you catching your flight (included in price) from Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha to Seronera Airstrip in the heart of the Serengeti. There, you will be met by a local guide for transfer to Olmara Camp (formerly known as Ehlane Plains Camp) on the remote, eastern plains. The trip takes about 1.5 hours, during which time you are sure to spot wildlife along the way.

After checking in and enjoying lunch, afternoon game viewing activities will commence, followed by dinner back at camp. On Day 1, you'll have the opportunity to discuss the details of your game viewing programme with your guide for the duration of your safari.

Days 2 to 4

For the next three days, you will explore the remote, game-rich stretch of the eastern Serengeti, far from the tourist hotspots where jeeps jockey for position at wildlife sightings. Your safari camp, Olmara Camp, is located in the Soit le Motonyi region, a hidden gem known to only but a few big cat researchers who spent 20 years studying cats in the area.

Off-limits to jeep-led safaris for decades, the area has only recently opened and the number of visitors to the area is strictly limited which means there's a good chance you won't encounter any other safari vehicles on your game drives.

This area - the eastern Serengeti where the acacia woodlands meet the short grasses of the savannah - attracts elephant, giraffe, zebra, warthog, wildebeest, buffalo, black rhino, waterbuck, steenbok and more in large numbers which, in turn, sustains the abundant resident predator population.

With about 12 prides of lions, a large concentration of cheetahs, leopards, servals, African wild dogs and 30-strong packs of hyena thriving in the Soit le Motonyi region, fantastic game viewing is guaranteed all year round.

There's also a chance to watch wildlife wandering through unfenced Olmara Camp from the comfort of your en-suite, eco-friendly luxury safari tent and to hear the sounds of untamed Africa at night when you're enjoying dinner at night beneath the stars.
