As Ernest Hemingway once wrote “All I wanted to do now was to get back to Africa. We had not left it yet, but when I would wake up in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.” FOUR finds out why it’s easy to get hooked on The Serengeti…
A walk in the wild

The name “Serengeti” derives from “Serengit”, a word in the Maasai language (‘Maa’) which translates into “Endless Plains”—a befitting name for what is known to be one of the most breathtaking and spectacular destination for safaris in Africa. Ever true to its name, the Serengeti boasts of seemingly endless savannah that stretches as far as the eye can see, and it is one of the major highlights not to be missed when planning your safari trip of a lifetime with Safari Infinity.

Here’s what your trip might look like when you plan a luxury safari package with Safari Infinity, staying at one of the most glamorous lodge in the Serengeti—the Four Seasons Safari Lodge.

Break of dawn over the African plains

When you wake in the morning from your Terrace Suite, weather-permitting, you would be graced by the presence of the breathtaking Serengeti sunrise—a mesmerizing kind of orange, that blends beautifully into a background of the staple acacia trees of the Serengeti. As your room will have a waterhole view, you may even spot wandering elephants that happen to be passing by the lodge.

For those who are early-risers, we would then arrange a packed breakfast prepared by the Four Seasons and drive out into the Serengeti plains for a unique “bush breakfast” experience. Surrounded by the true African wilderness, with the sounds of doves and cuckoos almost lulling you into an irresistible trance, you will find yourself immersed in this dreamlike landscape while sipping on your fresh morning coffee.

Early morning game drive proves to be one of the best times to be out in the bush, as this is when the wildlife is most active and the area less crowded with other safari vehicles. As your Safari Infinity Guide takes you out on the off-the-beaten path in the Serengeti, you will be able to come across unique moments, encountering the Big Cats, as well as the smaller mammals and an impressive list of wildlife. As the game drives are flexible depending on the guests’ preferences, you can choose to wander in the Serengeti plains until dusk, or return earlier to the lodge or camp of your choice.

Winding down

A sundowner from the Maji Bar & Terrace at the Four Seasons is a popular way to end your day, as you leisurely sip on your favorite wine or drink of your choice and watch the colors mystically changing in the sky until it is dotted with stars. The bar also features an outdoor deck, which looks over the open-air swimming pool and the Serengeti plains. For dinner, a sumptuous wine pairing dinner will be served the Four Seasons Safari Lodge’s wine cellar, which offers the incredible opportunity to sample wines from across the African continent, particularly South Africa.

As the night falls, you will be able to linger out by the lounge area for drinks. You will find yourself comfortably settled into your new “home”—a perfect blend of luxury and comfort in the bush. Perhaps this is how a sense of nostalgia that most visitors are so prone to feeling when they find themselves falling deeper in love with the African wilderness.
