As these massive Herds of herbivores search for new grazing ground, they are tracked and hunted by an impressive array of carnivorous Predators such as Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs and Hyenas. Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo, Antelope, Ostrich, Jackal, Baboon and Dik-Dik also inhabit these vast plains and woodlands. The birdlife in the Serengeti is surprisingly abundant, with nearly almost 500 species of birds having been recorded in the Serengeti National Park.

Built in the time-honored hut style and houses deluxe luxury rooms with en-suite facilities.
