Serengeti national Park
We will depart for the Serengeti National park once you have finished your appetising breakfast. If you are lucky you may encounter the odd animal on the route because we pass via the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Tanzania's oldest and most frequented national park, that is also a world heritage site and recently branded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World – the Serengeti is renowned for the annual migration of the herds and ever-growing wildlife population.
Serengeti To Ngorongoro
We will begin our day with an early morning game drive in the central Serengeti. The savannah is an active landscape and the air is flooded with the melodies the birds create as the regenerated sunlight starts to illuminate the full landscape. Your guide will study the prints on the ground to pursue predators. We will travel to the Simba campsite, located near the rim of the crater. You will be provided with dinner and satisfactory camping facilities.
Most animals remain within the crater due to its high walls. This is the perfect location to view every member of ‘The Big 5’ in one day. We will have a wonderful picnic lunch inside the crater. The unfilled caldera is also home to hyenas, hippo, zebra, wildebeest and an impressive variety of water birds. Your guide will enlighten you by sharing facts about the animals, vegetation and locating hidden animals.
Lake Manyara National Park
Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Park provides a picturesque, varying scenery. We will have a picnic lunch in a beautiful park. Assorted habitats including rainforests, the Soda Lake and the savannah support the highly diverse ecosystem. With over four hundred bird species, some of which are migratory, the reserve is a birdwatcher's delight. Lake Manyara houses the legendary tree-climbing lions as well as buffalo, elephants, giraffe, impalas and hippos.
