Serena Serengeti

5 stars


This wildlife safari explores the contrasting landscapes of Tanzania staying in the luxury and comfort of Serena Lodges and Hotels. The first stop is at Lake Manyara National Park which is famous for its tree-climbing lions and beautiful soda lake teeming with birdlife. The tour then travels to the world-famous Serengeti National Park where you will find endless plains dotted with acacia trees and an abundance of wildlife. Your next stop is the Ngorongoro, where you stay on the edge of the world's largest unbroken volcanic caldera. The steep sides of this spectacular geological feature form a natural enclosure for a diverse concentration of wildlife from zebra and wildebeest to Africa’s ‘big five’. The Serena Serengeti Safari is an extraordinary holiday - it showcases the best of Tanzania.
