Day 3: Tarangire National Park to Serengeti National Park Drive to Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world-wide wonder, the Serengeti National Park. The park is renowned for its annual migration; when some six million hooves pound the open plains. 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. Two nights at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge (B,L,D) Day 4: Serengeti National Park Another day spent in the Serengeti.

The original volcano was probably as high or higher than Kilimanjaro.
