Sundowners in Serengeti National Park

Sundowners in Serengeti National Park

Sundowners in Serengeti National Park

Give your classic safari game drive a perfect send-off with sundowner drinks in a breathtakingly beautiful location on the famous plains of Serengeti which commands magnificent views over the vast Serengeti National Park. Sip on an ice-cold gin and tonic, a sparkling glass of champagne, or your favourite cocktail as the dusk gently deepens around you and the sun sinks slowly over the Serengeti plains and the landscape. The evening sounds of the African wild will slowly quieten as the wildlife species seek shelter for the night and the predators begin to prepare for their nocturnal hunts.

Contemplating the silence of the vast sweeping plains, your eye is drawn to a herd of wildebeest and buffalo slowly making their way to the open plains for the night. Carving another path, the wildebeest trudge up the escarpment slope to the same liquid haven. Here the little ones stick closely to their mothers. Creating a magnificent wild backdrop, zebras and giraffes amble past each other, and quirky warthogs go down on bended knee to forage in the scrubby brush. Cast your gaze further back and you may see Jackal sneaking ever closer. This is a glorious time to relish the daily ritual of life in the wild as it unfolds naturally before you.
