DAY 11 - NGORONGORO - SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK 
This morning after breakfast and a final glimpse of the crater, you’re off to the famous Serengeti National Park, the symbol of Africa's wildlife. The word Serengeti comes from the Maasai language meaning "endless plains". The 6,900 sq. mile (18,00 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 large million animals including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and Thomson’s gazelles. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrate throughout the park. Many smaller animals – rock hyrax, bat eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboon and African hare inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. Off road you’ll find the "Kopjes", massive boulder islands of granite standing in a sea of grass, provide shelter to a great variety of plants and animals, from the elusive leopard to the tiny dik dik. 
On the way to the Serengeti you will stop at the famous “Oldupai Gorge”, where Dr. Louis and Mary Leakey made their discovery of early man. After attending a short lecture describing the archeological digs, continue across the Serengeti plains to Camp Kusini, located among the huge granite boulders of the Mwaki Nyeb Kopjes, in the far southern Serengeti, amid a vast tract of big game country outside the main tourist circuit. Kusini lies in a lion-haunted landscape of flat-topped acacias and short grass plains. The Mwaki Kopjes, huge tree-tufted piles of boulders, rise like islands from the sea of grass, affording panoramic views north towards the Gol Mountains and Ngorongoro Crater. 
Viewing wildlife on the way you will arrive at Seronera Wildlife Lodge.  The actual site was chosen because of the views, the unusual location and the all-year proximity of wildlife, due to easy access from the lodge to several different types of habitat - short grass plains, rocky outcroppings and acacia woodland. 
Today after resting up, set out on an afternoon game drive, returning before sunset to drinks around the fire and a delicious gourmet dinner. Overnight - Seronera Wildlife Lodge (all meals & activities)
