Serengeti Safari

Ride Overview

This safari will explore the Piyaya area, which is within the wider Serengeti Ecosystem. It is an incredible opportunity to indulge in your sense of adventure and get truly off the beaten track with riding in some of the most untouched parts of the Serengeti. We have timed this trip to give you the best chance of seeing the migration of the wildebeest and zebra from the Masai Mara back to the grassy plains of the Serengeti. Since the movement of the herds is dependent upon rainfall you need to be prepared to visit the migration by vehicle if the areas around the campsite are dry. The rainstorms can be quite localized on the rolling plains of this vast expanse of Africa. You will come across Masai herding their flocks to water in age old hand dug wells. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Olduvai Gorge, the site of Mary Leakey’s discovery of Zinj, one of the very early hominids. With a comfortable camp moved ahead by your support team, and accompanied by great horses, this is sure to be a unique and unforgettable experience.

Accommodations

One night in luxurious permanent tents at the Polo Club, seven nights moving between 3 different fly camps in the greater Serengeti ecosystem. These camps consist of spacious tents with their own with mosquito netting, beds and linens, long drop loo and bucket shower.
