5 day Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater Safari
Tanzania, home of Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar, and the Serengeti, is the destination for this safari. The safari provides breathtaking images of animals and vegetation in one of Africa’s most popular national parks. You may have the opportunity to see a variety of animals, from large cats, predators, among others. Animals such as buffalos, cheetahs, and black-maned lions are examples of such wildlife. You would be exposed to the masai community as well as the people’s everyday lives.
Arrival in ARUSHA on Day 1
Meet at the airport and be transferred to your lodge for a pre-safari briefing. On your journey, you could see some flamingos on the water.
ARUSHA — LAKE MANYARA DAY 2
We move to Lake Manyara for a morning game drive and lunch, a classic safari picnic, and appreciate our last glimpse of Northern Tanzania’s great wilds. Lake Manyara provides insight into the Great Rift Valley environment and the adaptation of many herd animals and spectacular birdlife. The park is endowed with a number of habitats that support a wide range of species, including the renowned tree climbing lions, buffalos, blue monkeys, and so on. We go on to Esilalei Maasai Village to learn more about the region and our school idea. We zigzag our way along the Rift Valley Escarpment and into the crater highlands for the night in the late afternoon.
Day 3: NGORONGORO — SERENGETI
Transfer to Ngorongoro early in the morning. Along the way, you may come across Olduvai George, one of the world’s most excellent paleoanthropological sites, which contains evidence of prehistoric man. Ngorongoro is a collapsing volcano that has produced an impressive natural amphitheatre that is 25 kilometers across and teeming with all of Africa’s major game. Early morning descent into the crater for stunning scenery and game watching in what has been called the world’s eighth wonder. You will have the opportunity to see scenic views of the major five when you are here. After lunch, move to the Serengeti’s incredible core regions.
Day 4: SERENGETI DAY 4
Spend the whole day exploring the Serengeti’s large plains, which provide an excellent opportunity to visit many of the kopjes and riverine regions. The majority of the camps are permanent, allowing for better nature watching while remaining near to core locations. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest forest, and it is home to a diverse range of wildlife. It is well-known for the annual movement of over 1.5 million white-bearded wildebeests, 200,000 zebras, and other animals. The Serengeti is a wild region of the earth with an ethereal landscape that must be experienced to be believed!
Day 5: SERENGETI — ARUSHA
After breakfast, we take a quick game drive to Seronera Central Airstrip, where we will board a charter flight back to Arusha.
