Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions.

After breakfast, we’ll depart for Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch and game drive en-route. In the evening, check in to the luxury camp for dinner and overnight.
 
A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 mile) pilgrimage begins again.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Namiri Plains Camp

Day 3  Serengeti

After breakfast, we will take your packed lunch for a full day game drives in the wilderness tracking the Great migration trails. By evening, we’ll be back at the camp for campfire, dinner and overnight.

A thorough explanation about this great world event that Tanzania is proud of will be provided. And in the evening as the sun goes down, Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. 

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: Namiri Plains Camp

Day 4  Serengeti - Ngorongoro

Early morning, experience the hot air balloon safari. Back to the camp after for your breakfast and to be followed by a morning game drive at Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch. Late in the afternoon, we’ll drive to Ngorongoro and check in to your accommodation.

The only living things which look as if they really belonged to it are the Wild Animals. Between the animals and Africa, there is an understanding that the human beings have not yet earned  ..." Laurens van der Post, Venture to the Interior 1963.
 
Today, the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the  Maasai Mara Game Reserve across the border in Kenya, protect the greatest and most varied collection of terrestrial wildlife on earth, and one of the last great migratory systems still intact.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: The Highlands, Ngorongoro

 

Day 5  Ngorongoro

Today, we will start with a morning game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater. In the evening, drive to the Camp for dinner and overnight.

As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species.  The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is an extensive highland area along the eastern arm of the Rift Valley, with the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. It is not a national park in the strict sense of the word, but the NCA was established to conserve wildlife and other natural resources. It also safeguards the interests of indigenous people and promotes tourism. Thus, guests on safari have the unique experience of seeing Maasai herdsmen whose cattle graze side by side with the tremendous variety of wildlife found in the area.

Meals: B,L,D
Accommodation: The Highlands, Ngorongoro
