Although it's not ideal, shoestring travellers can do their wildlife watching through the window of the Arusha–Musoma buses that cross the park, but you’ll need to pay entrance fees for Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The buses stop at the staff village at Seronera, but you’re not allowed to walk or hitchhike to the campsites or rest houses, and the park has no vehicles for hire, so unless you’ve made prior transport arrangements it’s nearly pointless to get off here.
Car & Motorcycle
Driving is not permitted in the park after 7pm, except in the visitor-centre area, where the cut-off is 9pm. Petrol is sold at Seronera. Almost everyone explores the park in a 4WD, but except during the heaviest rains 2WDs will have no problems on the main roads and can even manage some of the secondary ones.
