have the opportunity to view the abundant wildlife including Elephant, Lion, Cheetah, White Rhino, Buffalo, Hippo,
Antelope, Crocodile and Pink Flamingos. From here you can also choose to go into the Serengeti National Park for a day
where vast herds of wildebeest roam the plains. For those who wish - there is an option to visit a local Maasai Village and

Making our way to Kenya we pass through hot ...
