At 8 a.m., you'll be picked up from your accommodation and taken on a scenic drive across the Great Rift Valley, where you'll spend the day on a safari. The park's 205 square miles may not seem like much, but it's home to some amazing sights, including a rising population of baboons and blue monkeys, and a rich acacia woodland, gigantic figs, and mahogany trees. Giraffes, elephants, impalas, and a large number of buffaloes are also among the park's permanent occupants. Many hippos make their home in the lake. Lake Manyara's scenery are unlike anything else in the world, and the game drives along the lake offer excellent photo ops of giraffes and buffaloes with the lake as a backdrop. Other tours, such as those on bikes or boats, may be arranged. Go back to camp in time for dinner in the afternoon.
Breakfast and then out to the Serengeti, the world's most visited national park. The journey itself is breathtaking, despite its length. Anyone experiencing this for the first time will never forget it. As you travel farther into the Serengeti, you'll begin to appreciate the meaning of the word "endless plains" in the local language. The park is 6,900 square feet in size. The plains will fool your senses and make you question your idea of distance for miles (18,000 sq. km) of it. Two million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and countless species of antelopes all call this region home during the Great Migration. Several television scenes, including the renowned river crossings, have been filmed in this park, making it a favourite destination for Big Cat and large predator enthusiasts.
The option to switch between lower and higher quality lodgings is available.
Spend the whole day exploring the Serengeti. We are willing to be as accommodating as possible, so feel free to tell us how you would like this day to go. Your guide will work with you to choose the most convenient time to wake up and go on game drives each day of the safari. You could go on a full day game drive with a picnic lunch, or you could have a morning drive, come back to camp for lunch and relaxation, and then go on another drive in the afternoon.
Changing the quality of your lodgings is an option.
This is the day to get up early for a game drive (when the animals are more active) and one of the most breathtaking sunrises you'll ever see. We will return to camp for a hearty brunch after our game drive, and then head out to Ngorongoro, the eighth wonder of the natural world. This crater has an area of 102 square kilometers. miles and has walls that are 2,000 feet high, making it effectively Noah's ark and home to nearly all of the native fauna of East Africa. It's one of the few places in the entire continent to see a Black Rhino. The crater is home to a variety of ecosystems, including a river, multiple swamps, a soda lake teeming with flamingos, a forest, and open plains. The elephants there are the largest in the world, and their tusks are among the largest in the world. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the Earth.
By the time you get to Ngorongoro, the sun will be setting. Option of requesting a higher quality of lodging
In one of the most breathtaking sites on Earth, we will get up early to see magnificent species on the crater bottom. There will be time for a picnic near the picturesque hippo Lake after the wildlife drive. We'll do a short game drive after lunch, then go up the crater and out of Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the direction of Arusha. We want to return to Arusha by 5 pm, but can be flexible if a flight needs to be caught or whatever else comes up.
