Day 2-4 Days exploring the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area
Spend your days exploring all the dramatic scenery and safari scenes of the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area. The largest intact volcanic caldera in the world, this magnificent geography and fertile soils lure huge herds of plains game and predators in what makes for a multi-coloured and thrilling amphitheater of wildlife. The Big Five are all present here and you can spot flamingos on the central soda lake, zebras grazing along the plains, lions lazing in the tall grass and leopards in the trees of the crater rims. Daily game drives are as standard with all the lodges here, but other activities will vary according to which you choose.
Day 4-9 Days exploring the North Serengeti
Spend your days mostly exploring the northern section of the Serengeti on safari tracking the great array of game and wildlife that this vast area offers. If you're there at the right time for the great migration (depending on the season), this is the region where the herds are at their most concentrated because the North Serengeti forms the border with the Famous Maasai Mara of Kenya, and it’s where (if you’re lucky) you’ll see the infamous river crossings. It’s also an area of untamed natural beauty, of rolling hills, rivers, forests and open plains. We can suggest the best camp for you, based on your preference s and what you’re looking to get out of your experience here.
