DAY 1: ARUSHA – LAKE MANYARA
You will be picked from Arusha hotel and join the group to Lake Manyara national park. Arriving in time for lunch at the camp and later proceed into the Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive. This national park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park), located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake. Dinner and overnight at the panorama campsite.
DAY2: LAKE MANYARA – SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast you will depart to the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. You will arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park. Dinner and overnight at the seronera campsite.
DAY3:SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK – NGORONGORO CRATER
After breakfast you will proceed for a final early morning game viewing and later you will depart to Ngoro Ngoro Conservation area. You will optionally have a stopover at Olduvai Gorge (optional and all related costs not included in the package price) boasting with a history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution. You will arrive at the Ngoro Ngoro conservation area late evening .dinner and overnight at the simba campsite.
DAY4:NGORONGORO CRATER – ARUSHA
After early breakfast you will descend into the crater to view wildlife for a half day’s safari tour. Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot its prey. Picnic lunch and later depart back to Arusha for dinner and overnight stay.
