After an early breakfast, you will begin your journey to the breathtaking Ngorongoro Conservation Area. By lunchtime, you will be descending into the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, formed when a volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself 2-3 million years ago.
You will enjoy your first game drive around the crater floor, stopping for a picnic lunch at one of the many scenic lunch spots. With its 2,000-foot-high walls, very few animals migrate in and out of the crater making it an area with one of the highest concentrations of wild animals in the world.
You’ll be searching for lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffaloes, hippos, flamingos, jackals, antelopes and many rare birds. This is also your best chance to see rhinos. You might even get to see the “Big Five” all in one day!
At around 5 pm you will depart the crater and head to your lodge perched on the edge of the crater rim to spend the evening relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views over the prehistoric landscape.
At 6 am wake-up call is recommended to catch the amazing sunrise over the crater… After breakfast you will depart Ngorongoro Conservation to the Serengeti ecosystem, belonging jointly to the Serengeti National Park.
One of the most scenic drives in Tanzania, you can see Maasai warriors grazing cattle and, depending on the time of year, you may witness what makes up the largest mass migration of animals on earth. Huge herds of wildebeests, gazelles, and zebras move clockwise to find better grazing areas.
Before entering the Serengeti National Park you will visit a traditional Masai village and experience how this ancient tribe has lived for hundreds of years.
In the evening we will arrive at our tented camp for dinner and overnight stay.
The endless plains of the Serengeti…
Today’s tour departs around 6 am in search of nocturnal predators returning from their night’s hunting or animals waking up in the early dawn.
Breakfast boxes will be prepared and you will take a brief stop for a bush breakfast to enjoy the sunrise. Next, your drive will continue to look for the pride of lions, as well as other cats like cheetahs and leopards, all in abundance in the Serengeti. You will learn the history of the park as we pass by the information center in the Seronera area, before returning to your lodge for a relaxed lunch and cold drinks.
Later in the afternoon, when the sun is less intense, you have the option to go on an early evening game drive or a nature walk around the camp with the resident tribesmen (highly recommended), who will be happy to share their knowledge of the region's plants and animals with you.
If you wish to maximize your time in the park, lunch can also be taken as a picnic – a long day but an experience you won’t forget.
