The first thing to discover about the Serengeti is its scale. These grasslands seem to stretch for eternity, rolling virtually interrupted across an area bigger than many countries. Perhaps the finest vista comes from Sasakwa Lodge, raised on a rocky hill above the Serengeti’s Western Corridor. The panoramas are astonishing and you can see the clumps of wildebeest and zebra for miles and miles around. Look out from your luxurious cottage and the Serengeti spills out before you; even better, enjoy the vista from a private plunge pool.
You land at Kilimanjaro International Airport this morning, where you transfer onto a light aircraft. Cruising above Ngorongoro then crossing the Serengeti, the small plane provides the first impression of the landscape’s scale. Then the utter luxury of Sasakwa Lodge is the perfect place to soak up the enormity of it all. The day’s itinerary is flexible and you might want to take an afternoon game drive, a personal introduction to the battles between predator and prey. Sunset photos are magical from Sasakwa as the campfire begins to crackle and the plains flicker with a golden hue.
