    Leakey. The site is located about 10 to 15 minutes off the main road
    between Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Olduvai Gorge arose to interest in
    the archaeological world as early as 1911, when German Professor
    Katurinkle whist looking for butterflies in the gorge, found some
    fossil bones. Dr Leaky discovered there the skull of
    Australopithecus-Zinjanthropus boisei – the nutcracker man who lived
    in the lower Pleistocene Age around 1,750,000 BC. Enjoy an afternoon
    game viewing drive before returning to the lodge in the early evening.

  • Serengeti

    Breakfast in the lodge, depart for full day game viewing drive in the
    Park. The Serengeti covers 14,763 sq. km of endlessly rolling savannah
    plains, and is Tanzania’s first-established, largest and most famous
    park. Here, twice a year, propelled by the rains, 1.3 million
    wildebeest, 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle gather to
    undertake an 800 km trek to new grazing lands. The precise timing of
    the migration varies but generally the herbivores congregate and move
    out at the end of May, sometimes over a period of weeks, sometimes
    over a period of as little as three or four days. Heading west on a
    roughly triangular 800- km circuit they head to the Masai Mara
    National Reserve of Kenya. When the grazing there is exhausted the
    tide of herbivores turns and reverses its progress returning to the
    short grass plains of Tanzania Dinner and overnight at Serengeti
    Serena Safari or Sopa Lodge
