Day by Day Overview

Today begins with a full day game drive in Lake Manyara. Although small in dimension (only 205 square miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and is famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as a growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Other permanent residents in this park include giraffes, elephants, impalas and large herds of buffaloes. The lake is also home to an abundant population of hippos. Lake Manyara boasts some fascinating species such as tree climbing lions, and flamingos which gather in large flocks along the lake shore. The landscapes of Lake Manyara are difficult to describe in words, and the game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes with the beautiful lake in the background.

Today you will have the opportunity to visit the incredible 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. After a fantastic afternoon game drive, we will ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area, heading to your accommodation for the night.

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.

Today you will enjoy another full day in the Serengeti National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organised according to your wishes. On every day of the safari, your guide will discuss the best times with you, including the game drive time and the wake up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation, and finish with an afternoon game drive, or you could do a full day game drive with picnic lunch; the choice is completely yours!

On these two incredible days, you will be driven across breathtaking, remote locations within the vast Serengeti plains in pursuit of the Great Migration. The areas you visit depend on the time of the year and could be as far as the remote north of the Serengeti near the border with Kenya, the south (Ndutu area) or even the western part of the park.

On your last day, wake early for a last morning game drive. The early morning is the best time to see an abundance of game, as well as an incredible African sunrise. After the game drive, we will return to the camp for a rewarding brunch, before proceeding to the airport for your flight back to Arusha. Alternatively, you may choose to skip the game drive and stay at the camp for a bit of relaxation before heading home.
