Day by Day Overview
You’ll be picked up from your hotel at 8am to start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley, where you’ll enjoy a full day game drive. Although small in size (only 205 square miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and is famous for its lush acacia forest, giant fig and mahogany trees, and its growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Other wildlife in the park includes giraffes, elephants, impalas and huge herds of buffaloes. The lake is also home to a large number of hippos. The landscapes of Lake Manyara are breathtaking, and the game drives provide stunning photo opportunities of game gathering around the water to drink and cool off.
After an early breakfast, depart for the most famous national park in the world, the Serengeti National Park. The drive itself, although long, is spectacular. As you progress into the park, you will see why it was named ‘Serengeti’, which means ‘endless plains’ in the local language. The park is 18,000 square kilometers, and for most of it, the plains stretch to the horizon, defying your senses and perception of distance, seeming to go on and on forever. Serengeti is the home of the famous Great Migration, where 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes move along the plains in search of greener pastures. As for big cats and large predators, the Serengeti is the perfect place to spot lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas, as they stalk massive herds of antelope migrating across the plains.
Start your third day with an exciting early morning game drive, and witness an incredible, colourful and vibrant African sunrise whilst searching for the big five. After the game drive, return to the camp for a rewarding brunch, followed by an exciting trip to the Ngorongoro Crater, the 8th wonder of the natural world. The crater spreads for 102 square miles and has 2000 foot high walls, allowing almost every species of bird and animal that is indigenous to East Africa to inhabit its massive surface area. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of only a few locations on the whole continent where you can still see the black rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a large concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants, which are the largest in the world and have impressively large tusks.
We will start the day very early and descend to the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on earth. Once you’ve had a chance to explore this incredible natural wonder, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area, heading to Arusha. This signals the end of your incredible 4-day adventure!
