Day 3. South Serengeti (Ndutu).
After a hearty breakfast, we will start our game drive early in the morning, exploring the different habitats that are found here, including plains, swamps, and soda lakes, where we may find different species of animals, including wildebeest, zebras, antelopes, and some attractive carnivores such as lions and cheetahs. Over a million wildebeest babies are born here every year, and after a few minutes, the sea of grass offers a great cover for this baby to survive while others fall into the hands of lions and get killed. A picnic lunch will be perfect on this day. After lunch, depart for an evening drive and then drive back to the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
