While here, you’ll see elephants pacing along as if they had an appointment here. Early morning game drives in the cool of the equatorial day give you the chance to observe lions as they warm up for their work day; it’s amazing to be so close to such supremely strong beasts, and to watch them search for game, gazing, eyes afire, right through the vehicles as if you are a harmless cloud. Hippos galumph in muddy pools, mile-long streams of wildebeest pace along migratory paths.

Four Seasons gives a full display of Serengeti National Park. culturally with respectful and hearty visits and walks with Tanzania’s local Maasai, soul – enrichingly with expansive game drives and exploration.

After a long day out exploring the plains, head to the spa where you can rejuvenate, restore and re-energize for the next day’s safari adventure.

Visitors are challenged to view the paintings and try to decipher the abandoned language.
