Our guide will pick you up at your hotel 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. In the afternoon, you will be transferred to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.
Enjoy your early morning breakfast before heading to Ngorongoro and descend into the crater floor for an incredible game drive.
Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest unbroken caldera, recognized as one of the wonders of the Natural World. Here inhabit 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 picnic lunch will be near the beautiful hippo lake. After lunch, continue your game drive on this fantastic area and then ascend the crater and transfer to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.
After an early morning breakfast, you will depart towards the Serengeti, regarded as the most famous National Park in the World. It will be a long ride, but also a rewarding one, with astonishing views along the way. You will make a quick stop on the rim of the crater highlands for a truly unforgettable view of Ngorongoro Crater. As you advance into the Serengeti National Park, you will understand the meaning of the word Serengeti, which is Swahili for endless plains. As the plains extend into the horizon, your perception and senses will be defied.
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 ever-moving journey. And with such a large number of animals, it's only expectable to observe 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, drive to the selected campsite/lodge for dinner and overnight.
Enjoy an early breakfast and start your full-day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. This day is planned according to your wishes and preferences. Each day of the safari will be discussed with you, in order to analyze the most suitable schedules, including the game drives and the wake-up time. For instance, you could opt for a morning game drive, returning to the lodge for lunch and relaxation, finishing with an afternoon game drive, or you could do a full day game drive with a picnic lunch. After this immersion in the wild, drive to the selected campsite/lodge for dinner and overnight.
On these two days, you will cross remote locations within the endless plains, tracking the Great Migration. Depending on the season, you can either visit the remote North of the Serengeti, near the border with Kenya, the South (known as Ndutu Area) or even the Western part of the park.
After an invigorating breakfast, you'll go on an early morning game drive, which is when the animals are most active. Afterwards, you'll stop at the camp for brunch, leaving there to the airstrip for a return flight to Arusha. Alternatively, you may choose to spend the morning at the lodge for a bit of relaxation.
