Itinerary

Pickup from your hotel at 8am and start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley until Lake Manyara National Park for a full day game drive. Although small in dimension (205 sq. miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and well famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as to a growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Permanent residents of this park also include giraffes, elephants, impalas and a huge amount of buffaloes. The lake is also home to a large number of hippos. Some unique facts about this park include the tree climbing lions, flamingos in the lake shore, as well as the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. During this day, some extra tours are possible, including a bike tour or a boat excursion. Arrive in time for lunch.

Embark on an epic journey after an early breakfast, heading to the renowned Serengeti, the epitome of a wildlife spectacle. The drive itself, though lengthy, offers spectacular views as you ascend the crater highlands. Pause at the rim for an awe-inspiring glimpse of Ngorongoro Crater, an unforgettable sight for first-time observers. Venturing deeper into the Serengeti, the meaning of its name, "endless plains," becomes evident. Covering 6,900 sq. miles, the vast plains seem to stretch endlessly to the horizon, challenging your senses. This region hosts the Great Migration, a mesmerizing phenomenon featuring 2 million wildebeests, zebras, and various antelopes, including impalas and Thomson's gazelles. The Serengeti is a haven for Big Cats and predators, making it an ideal location to spot lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. Arrive in time for lunch.

Full day in Serengeti National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. On every day of the safari, your guide will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the wake up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive, or you could do a full day game drive with picnic lunch.

This day we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you'll ever witness. It's really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we'll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah's ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It's one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It's also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. This is due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World.

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful Hippo Lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha. We expect to be back in Arusha around 5pm although we are flexible in case there is a (flight) to catch or another situation.
