Early Morning Game Drive

Where Can be Done

Preferably in the Serengeti, Nyerere "Selous', Ruaha, and Tarangire National Parks.


2 up to 3 hours of in-depth game viewing ...drive back to the camp/ lodge for breakfast.


This is part of a planned itinerary. Advanced reservations required.

You wake with a smile, stirred by the rich aroma of fresh-brewed coffee. A silver tray waits by the tent flap. Still rubbing sleep from your eyes, you step out into the new day, hot coffee in hand. The new sun warms your face. You sigh contentedly, sit on your private deck and sip your coffee, waking up with Africa.

The sun rises at 6.00 am, which means an early start to your day.

The sky is a vivid, cloudless blue. The sun is just emerging, and the dew on the tall savannah grass glimmers golden in the light.

In the branches above you, exotic birds sing their morning songs into the crisp, fresh air.

In front of you, a river moves steadily along, speckled by light. A few hippos laze in the water, chortling, and splashing.

Watching the Serengeti aweken....

If you start first thing in the morning, you are likely to find the Serengeti at its most active.

The reward is likely to be the sight of predators who avoid the heat: additional attractions include subtle light on the landscape and the joyous sounds of awakening birds. Having been fortified with coffee and tea, you return for a hearty breakfast at the camp after 9.00 am.

Elephants and giraffes cast a curious glance your way....

As dawn breaks over the horizon, throwing light and shadow across the land, the drama of life in the wild unfolds right below you.
