Our 4-Day Tanzania Lodge Safari to Lake Manyara, which specifically includes 1 night in Serengeti National Park, has been designed to offer you more time in the Serengeti to witness the wildebeest migration.
You will be picked up from Kilimanjaro International Airport and transferred by private vehicle to Arusha for your dinner and overnight stay. If time allows, you will have time to do a walking tour of the coffee plantation or the option to visit Arusha National park before your big adventure starts.
After breakfast, the tour departs. The first stop is Arusha Town for any last-minute purchases before we head off on safari. Afterward, we head to Lake Manyara. Lake Manyara National Park offers breathtaking views and a large variety of habitats. Acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab-strewn cliffs, algae-streaked hot springs, swamps, and the lake. And thanks to this, the small Park can support a large number of animal species and incredible bird life. Manyara has the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world, and the lions here are also renowned for their tree climbing. Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro farmhouse.
After breakfast, depart for Serengeti National Park via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. Then head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species Arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.
Early morning game drives and after departs to Ngorongoro Conservation area. We will stop at Olduvai Gorge, boasting a history dating back to the dawn. It was here that the anthropologist Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both significant links in the chain of human evolution. Late afternoon transfer to Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge, where you will have dinner and overnight.
After an early breakfast, you will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro conservation Area supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. Many flamingos, hippos, and other water birds can usually be seen here. Late afternoon transfer to Arusha.
