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 which 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
7:00 am – Breakfast 8:00 am – En route Game Drive to Lake Manyara National Park for lunch. After lunch go for more game drive. The Park is stretched 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment. Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Famous explorer Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. Lake Manyara National Park covers 127 square miles (329 km2), The Lake’s alkaline waters (with a pH near 9.5) cover approximately 89 square miles (231 km2), though the area and pH fluctuate widely with the seasons, and dry spells expose large areas of mud flats. 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. 7:30 pm – Dinner and overnight in Manyara. Travel time/distance is approximately (5 Hrs / 230 kms)
