  1. Manyara National Park
  2. Ngorongoro Conservation Area
  3. Serengeti National Park

Day 1

Lake Manyara National Park

Our guide will pick you up at the airport/accommodation and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. This park is truly breathtaking, with its luscious acacia forest, giant figs, and mahogany trees. Here you can find plenty of wildlife, including giraffes, elephants, impalas, and a large number of buffaloes. The lake is also the habitat for lots of hippos!

The most distinctive characteristics of this national park are the tree-climbing lions, flamingos in the lakeshore, as well as the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. You will have many photo opportunities, as its landscapes are indescribable and with abundant wildlife!

We recommend some extra activities, such as a bike tour or a boat excursion. After this immersion in the wild, drive to the selected campsite/lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 2

Lake Manyara National Park to Serengeti National Park

After a nourishing breakfast, you'll go on an early morning game drive when the animals are most active. Then, you will leave for Serengeti National Park with a game drive and picnic lunch on the way.

This park is home to the Great Migration, when over 1.5 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and all kinds of antelopes start their journey. With such a large number of animals, you can expect to see many big cats and other large predators, attracted to their prey. So take this opportunity to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. Many other smaller animals reside here too, not to mention over 500 species of birds.

After this immersion in the wild, you will drive to the selected campsite/lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro

You will wake up very early for a morning game drive, which will allow you to witness the most beautiful sunrise of your life. Then, you will leave for Ngorongoro Conservation Area with a picnic lunch on the way. Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest unbroken caldera, recognized as one of the Wonders of the Natural World. It inhabits almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. And it's also one of the few places in the whole continent where you can spot the black rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a lake full of flamingos, a forest, and open plains. Due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil, the elephants found there are the largest in the world!
Your dinner and overnight stay will be at the selected camp/lodge.

Day 4

Ngorongoro Crater

After an early breakfast, you will descend into the crater floor for a fabulous morning of wildlife viewing in one of the most fascinating places on earth. You'll have your picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo lake, followed by a short game drive. You'll exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha arriving at around 5:00 pm.
