    Day 23: Serengeti National Park
    Wake to the sounds of the African bush and head out on an early morning game drive to glimpse the animals at their most active. You may find that the landscapes of the Serengeti are perhaps as alluring as the wildlife that calls the park home. Endless dry grasslands collide with a brilliant blue sky, while the iconic profiles of lone acacia trees stand beneath the blazing sun. On your afternoon game drive, the chance to spot Africa’s famous Big Five is high, thanks to the park’s density of both predators and prey. Back at your lodge this evening, swap stories of your sightings and adventures during dinner with your fellow travellers.
