We pick you at 6am from Arusha to Mto wa Mbu where you will join a small group for safari to Serengeti National park. The name "Serengeti" origins from the Masai word "Siringitu" and means "endless plains". You can see why the Masai gave this region this name as the grassland savannah stretches to the horizon in the South and is only interrupted by the so-called Kopjes (inselbergs). These Kopjes are bizarre rock formations formed by the weathering of granite outcrops. The plains are the perfect hunting grounds for leopards and other big cats and you have a good chance to view these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat through the open roof of the vehicle. In the afternoon, you will reach the destination for the day - the Seronera Valley in the central Serengeti area. You will stay in "safari styled" tents enjoying a good meal in the middle of the African bush.
After breakfast, you will continue the game drive through the Serengeti National Park. You will sight hundreds of wildebeests and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs in the Seronera Valley. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro.
After early breakfast at daybreak, you will drive down into the crater. Inside the world's biggest caldera, On the grass steppe and in the acacia tree woods, you will find almost all species that are found in the East African Savannah, with the exception of topis, Masai giraffes and impalas. After an extensive wildlife tour and a picnic for lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and drive back to Arusha.
