We just heard from IMG senior guide, CJ, over in the Serengeti and all is well. After 100% of the clients stood on the summit of Kilimanjaro just a few days ago, the group has been rewarded with tons of wildlife viewing on the Serengeti. This really is the dessert of this trip and people are always amazed by what they see. The group has now made it back to their extremely comfortable wilderness camp for the night after a full day of game viewing. Yesterday they saw a leopard, which is typically the hardest of the “Big 5” animals to get a glimpse of. Lions, buffaloes, and elephants – 3 more of the Big 5 – will easily be seen, along with numerous other creatures, from big to small. What you see out here is always different and always exciting!
Tomorrow, the group will make their way out of Serengeti National Park and over to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which is basically a huge crater in the ground filled with a very high concentration of animals. This is also their best chance to see the last of the Big 5 – the rhino. The Team could not be having more fun than they are right now! They are right in the middle of their safari – right in the heart of the Serengeti. After dinner, they’ll probably sit around the camp fire for a bit swapping stories before heading back to their ‘tents’ for the night. I use the term ‘tent’ loosely here as the tents have full beds and bathrooms attached. They are hardly roughing it. They’ll have another big day tomorrow watching wildlife before spending their final night in our luxury safari lodge.
