The Serengeti is a spectacular destination even for the most experienced traveler. With breathtaking scenery that is every photographer’s paradise and abundant wildlife that offers a never-ending performance, the circle of life plays out in front of you. There are a number of ways to experience this diverse landscape, from the comfort of your safari vehicle to the mesmerizing heights of a hot air balloon as you float over the plains or the unforgettable thrill as you explore the area on foot – each gives you a different perspective on the world around you.
In the comfort of a safari vehicle
Day-long game drives are a must in the Serengeti. You can set off early for a champagne breakfast in the bush and stay out all day carrying your delectable picnic lunch. You will be delighted and awed by the sheer numbers of game, including the Big 5. Elewana has a number of new and exciting game drive tracks close to Serengeti Migration Camp, led by expert guides.
Drifting across the Serengeti plains in a hot air balloon
Experience the incredible beauty of the Serengeti as you drift above the plains in a hot air balloon. Your adventure starts well before the sun peaks above the horizon, heading to the site where you will take off for an experience you will never forget. As dawn breaks, the hot air balloon will carry you above the treetops and away. Your pilot can control the altitude of the balloon to either flying just above the branches or can ascend to 1000+ feet for panoramic views.
Get closer to nature
One of the most thrilling ways to explore Serengeti is on foot, where you will be accompanied by a professional walking safari guide whose knowledge of local flora, fauna, culture, and history is unmatched. Follow the spoor of a herd of impala or track a porcupine, identify a specific bird sound or learn the tell-tell signs that animals are close by. Savor the sweet smell of a local flower or learn the benefits that an indigenous bush has to the nomadic Maasai. Elewana Collection has a number of new trails to explore while staying at Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp, for those who enjoy the outdoors and adventure.*
