Day 01:

Pick up from your hotel and proceed towards to the one wonders of the world, Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The conservation Area consists of grasslands, swamps, forests, rivers, and even an arid area of shifting dunes. The Crater supports a year round resident population of varied wildlife, and as the game is concentrated into a relatively small area you are likely to see lion, elephant, hyena, jackal, cheetah, the very rare Black rhino, primates and many more.  After lunch, afternoon relax and enjoy the panoramic views and comfort of your lodge. Dinner and overnight at your lodge

 

 

Day 02:

After an early breakfast you descend into the Crater in a 4 x 4 vehicle for a full day of game viewing with a picnic lunch taken on the Crater floor. The area is also home to the proud, colourful and unique Maasai tribe, This is where you will see unusual feature of Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing together, with a lion kill just a few hundred metres away.

Later in the evening return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.

 

 

Day 03

Leave after breakfast to Serengeti Plains via Ol Duvai Gorge, which is about 50 kilometres long and in some places 90 meters deep. Commonly heralded as the "Cradle of Mankind" it was made famous by the discovery in 1959 of the remains of early man. Your stop includes a visit to the small museum overlooking the Gorge, later proceed to Serengeti arriving in time for lunch at the lodge.

Afterwards depart for an afternoon game drive at Serengeti plains in search of big five.

Dinner and overnight at the lodge

 

 

Day 04

Full day at the park with morning and afternoon game drives. This is one of the most popular and spectacular game areas in East Africa, covering an area of 14,765 square kilometres, teaming with game.  A particular feature of the Serengeti is the annual migration of the wildebeest and zebra herds

Each year, after  the traditional "short" rains in November the migration starts when the herds amass in their thousands on the plains below the Ngorongoro highlands.During February they move north and west following the rains and the new grasslands, and they start to move into the Masai Mara in July. In October they move back to Tanzania .This annual phenomenon involves more than 1.5 million animals, including the lion and other predators who follow the herds for easy pickings. The whole process affects the lives of thousands of other species who rely on the passage of the migration for their survival, even the insects, not to mention the trees and plants which rely on the droppings for their fertilization. Dinner and overnight at lodge.

 

 

Day 05

After morning breakfast depart to Lake Manyara, you get a spectacular view, approaching from the east the Great Rift Valley wall forms an impressive backdrop to the Lake. From the west, with a pause at the top of the escarpment, the park lies below, a green strip beside a glistening lake. 

Lake Manyara National Park covers an area of 330 square kilometers, of which about two thirds is the lake itself, and the rest is forest, acacia woodland and some grasslands by the lake shore. The wildlife can be migratory between Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Park across the lake, but you should see elephant, hippo, Cape buffalo, giraffe , several species of primate and antelope, and prolific birdlife. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
