Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most popular wildlife sanctuaries. It offers a unique biosphere which has remained virtually unchanged since the beginning of time. Deep within the Crater, enclosed by towering walls, some 25,000 large mammals wander the plains, lakes and forests of “the land that time forgot” dominated by enormous bull elephants, rhinos and lions. 7:30 pm – Dinner and overnight in Ngorongoro.


Day 3 : Ngorongoro to Serengeti:

7:00 am – Breakfast 8:00 am – En route Game drive to Serengeti National park. Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value. With more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson’s gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. The wildebeest and zebra moreover form the star cast of a unique spectacular – the annual Serengeti migration. The name ‘Serengeti’ comes from the Maasai language and appropriately means an ‘extended place’. The National Park, with an area of 12,950 square kilometers, is as big as Northern Ireland, but its ecosystem, which includes the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Maswa Game Reserve and the Maasai Mara Game reserve (in Kenya), is roughly the size of Kuwait. It lies between the shores of Lake Victoria in the west, Lake Eyasi in the south, and the Great Rift Valley to the east. As such, it offers the most complex and least disturbed ecosystem on earth. 7:30 pm – Dinner and overnight in Serengeti. Travel time/distance is approximately (3½ Hrs / 140 kms)


Day 4: Serengeti full day:

7:00 am – Breakfast 8:00 am – Full-day game drive with picnic lunch in the Serengeti National park. 7:00 pm – Dinner and overnight in Serengeti.


Day 5 : Serengeti to Lake Manyara:

7:00 am – Breakfast 8:00 am – En route game drive to Lake Manyara National Park for Lunch. After lunch its more Game Drive until evening. Lake Manyara is a shallow lake in the Natron-Manyara-Balangida branch of the East African Great Rift Valley. The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzania safari experience from the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle like groundwater forest where hundreds-strong baboon troops lunge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large water birds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks. The park is also famous for its tree climbing lions. Travel time/distance is approximately (5 Hrs / 230 kms) 7:30 pm – Dinner and overnight in Manyara.


Day 6 : Lake Manyara to Arusha:

7:00 am – Breakfast 8:00 am – Drive back to Arusha. End of your tour. Travel time/distance is approximately (2½ Hrs / 130 kms)
