Drive-in fly-in or combo safari?
Many roads lead to Serengeti National Park. So which one should you choose? This really depends on your wishes, needs and further travel plans. If you’re looking for a fast and convenient way to travel, or just have a few days to spend in the area, a fly-in safari is the option for you. If you’re planning to visit some other sites as well or looking to save some money on transportation, a drive-in safari is the way to go.
A popular option is to combine these two, starting with a drive-in safari from Arusha, with an overnight stay at the Ngorongoro Crater along the way. From the crater it’s just an three hour drive to the Serengeti National Park. After your Serengeti safari you can fly out from one of the airstrips – saving you at least eight hours of driving to Arusha.
Travelling to Serengeti National Park:
Even though Serengeti National Park is one of the few places left where nature’s ancient rules and seasonal cycles have been more or less unaltered, the Serengeti is fairly easy to access. The most convenient option is to fly from Arusha to one of the park’s seven airstrips. It is also possible to book an overland safari in a 4×4 safari vehicle from Arusha to Serengeti National Park and visit one or two other parks along the way. Of course it’s also possible to combine these options; book a one way Serengeti overland safari and fly back to Arusha.
