We booked 2 nights at Ngare Nanyuki Special Campsite (near Seronera). 2 nights at Lobo Hills Public Campsite (towards the north of Serengeti). 2 nights at Kira Wira Special Campsite (in the Western Corridor of Serengeti). As it turned out we are still not sure we camped at the exactly correct spot for Ngare Nanyuki. The co-ordinates of where we camped are S 02 29,316 E35 00,285. More about this later.

Cost of fuel at Seronera very expensive at TSh 2267\L compared to TSh 2145\L at Karatu.
