The amazing game drives in Serengeti

What is a game drive?

A game drive is a safari activity done in the game parks/conservation areas using a 4×4 safari car for wildlife sightings. It can be described as driving through a large number of wildlife for close viewing.  Game drives in Serengeti national park are the best part of any wildlife safari in Tanzania.

On a game drive you will see wonderful local wildlife of that specific area which may include wildebeest, lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, leopards and any other random specie. If you found yourself in Tanzania’s incredible wild spaces, you will have to witness the wild wonders of Africa up close.

When undertaking a game drive, be ready to have a mix of the exciting and heart-breaking moments as the animals play around as well as the predators devouring their prey.

Where is Serengeti National Park?

Serengeti is every tourist dream destination and the perfect Tanzania wildlife safari destination. It is a vast stretch of savannah grassland filled with wildlife in North Eastern Tanzania. It stretches to the famous Masai Mara land where most tourists continue for Kenya wildlife safaris.

The almost endless lush grasslands of Serengeti are the richest grazing grounds in the country, and therefore home to the prime herds and the biggest number of predators.

Types of game drives in Serengeti National park Tanzania

The game drive can be done in three different time in which you can choose from;

Full Day Game Drive

Having a full day in the wild during a Tanzania wildlife tour is an un rivaled experience. You depart in the early hours of 6:00 am and get back to your hotel by 5:00 pm, this means a full day experience.

These kind of wildlife safaris are the only way you can encounter and understand the whole experience of the wildlife and their cycle. During this time in the park you will go along with 4×4 safari vehicle for hire fully equipped to cater for you in the wild.

For full day game drives, you will require preparation since the scorching sun will find you in the open plains. Do not forget your packed lunch, hat, sun block lotion and light clothes.

The best way to have all sorts of perfect photographs is when you take a full day game drive to Serengeti.

The Morning Game Drive

Taking a game drive in the morning with the cool morning breeze of the plains will leave you with memories of Serengeti at its most active time. The early morning game drive starts as early as before 6:00am so remember to wear something warm.

The morning hours are the best times for game viewing as the predators take an early morning hunt, in these hours when every animal is still strong and fresh, watching the chase is thrilling. At this time the birds are making the great melodies of the morning as the sun starts to peep out, it’s a great time for seeing an African sunrise in the wild.

The Evening Game Drive

At dusk, heading for a sunset game drive after a day’s relaxation is amazing as you see the wildlife trying to make an evening kill. What you might meet at this cool sundowner moment is not predictable, it could either be a pride of lion or the numerous wildebeests.

Take a Tanzania safari and get your senses involved in a drive with thousands of wildlife as they trample and roar in the endless plains of Serengeti.
