Day by Day Overview
After an early breakfast you head towards Serengeti National Park, on a journey that goes from the Rift Valley up into the wide plains of the Serengeti. The park was founded in 1951 and is thus the oldest one in Tanzania. The heart of a vast ecosystem, together with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the Serengeti National Park is one of the largest natural migration systems for wild animals. Annually between these three conservation areas migrate over 1.4 million gnus, almost 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles, about 200,000 zebras and several thousand topis with the rainy seasons to the places with greener and more lush meadows. The Serengeti is home to large mammals as well as other animal species such as giraffe, hyena and crocodile. Particularly large is the population of feline predators: about 3,000 lions, a good 300 cheetahs and an estimated 400-700 leopards have their hunting ground here.
Dinner & overnight: mid-range lodge
After breakfast you head to Ngorongoro Crater, partly on adventurous roads about 600 meters downwards into the crater. The crater has a diameter of 17-21 kilometers and is the home of a great animal world. Nearly all the biodiversity of the East African savannah has gathered here, only giraffes and a few other animal species for which the rock faces are too steep do not live in the crater. Depending on the season, 15,000 to 25,000 animals are gathering here, of which more than two thirds are buffaloes, gnus, zebras and gazelles. This large number of grazers also explains why in the crater the largest density of predators in Africa can be found. Beside other predators more than 100 lions live here in several prides. The chances of seeing the Big Fiv – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – within just a few hours are here particularly good. In the afternoon go up the steep crater walls and then to Karatu for dinner and overnight.
Dinner & overnight: mid-range lodge
After breakfast you head to Tarangire National Park. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and drive to Arusha or Kilimanjaro.
