Day by Day Overview

This morning you will be met with our driver/guide for a short briefing before making your way to Lake Manyara National Park. Stretching along the Rift Valley Escarpment, the park is named after the shallow alkaline Lake Manyara, which can be seen through a hue of pink, due to the large numbers of flamingos flocking seasonally to its shores. More than 400 species of birds make this park a bird lovers paradise – on any given day 100 different species can be observed. Apart from the avian inhabitants, giraffes, elephants, monkeys and antelopes can be spotted in the forest, amongst the acacia trees and on the grasslands. With a bit of luck, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the famous tree-climbing lions, a somewhat uncommon trait for these large cats. After a thorough exploration of the park, you will leave and travel to the town of Karatu for the night.

Accommodation: Bougainvillea Safari Lodge (Lunch, Dinner)

After breakfast, you leave Karatu and drive through the cooler highland region towards the Serengeti National Park. The world renowned Serengeti National Park, with its diverse landscape ranging from grass plains and dry savannah to marshy woodlands, is the stamping ground of many carnivorous predators and their prey. The park is home to the largest animal migration in the world and depending on the season you will be able to witness this spectacular event unfold. The herds of wildebeest and zebras journey in the short rainy season of November and December from the hills in the north to the southern plains before returning to the north during the long rainy season April to June. The location of the migrating herds is dependent on the yearly rainfall, but your guide will know where the best vantage points for wildlife viewing are. The night will be spent in the central Serengeti.

Accommodation: Tortilis Tented Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

As the sun slowly rises over the vast open plains, you will embark on your first game drive of the day. Due to the abundance of prey species, such as gazelles and impalas, the park boasts one of the largest lion populations in Africa as well as other predators such as leopards and cheetahs. Returning to camp after the game drive you will enjoy a hearty breakfast before leaving the park and driving towards Ngorongoro Crater. Arriving at the crater rim, the 600m deep caldera in all its splendor opens up before you. You will spend the night at Tortilis Tented Camp located just within Ngorongoro Conservation Area, watching the sun set over the glistening springs of the collapsed volcano’s floor.

Accommodation: Tortilis Tented Camp (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

After an early breakfast, you will start your descent on a narrow and steep road to the crater floor. The crater is inhabited by a spectacular array of wildlife, which includes zebras, hippos, hyenas, wildebeests, warthogs and the famous Big Five – buffalo, rhino, lion, elephant and leopard. After extensive game viewing and lunch at a picnic spot, you will leave the crater and travel back to Moshi, where you will arrive in the late afternoon.
