Day 1: Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, with picnic lunch, drive to Lake Manyara. The park derived its name from the Maasai word “manyara”, which is the name for the plant Euphorbia tirucalli. The Maasai use this plant to grow livestock stockades. Eventual, y manyara will produce a stockproof hedge which is more durable than any made of cut thorn branches. There is a specimen of Euphorbia tirucalli at the entrance gate. The Great Rift Valley is part of a fault in the earth’s crust which stretches 8,000 kilometers (4,971 miles) from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique. The fault is so massive that when astronauts landed on the moon the Rift Valley was clearly visible to them. Evening overnight to the  Tloma  Lodge.

  • Accommodation: Tloma  Lodge
  • Meal/drinks included: Lunch, Dinner
  • Drinks included: Bottled drinking water only

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, a full day game drive in Serengeti. A million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Camps booked on full board basis.

  • Meal/drinks included: Break, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Serengeti Central (Central Seronera)

After breakfast, depart and drive to Serengeti National Park to central Seronera, the park is well-known for its healthy stock of other resident wildlife, particularly the “big five”, named for the five most prized trophies taken by hunters:

Lion: the Serengeti is believed to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part to the abundance of prey species. More than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem.

African Leopard: these reclusive predators are commonly seen in the Seronera region but are present throughout the national park with the population at around 1,000.

African Elephant: the herds are recovering from population lows in the 1980s caused by poaching and are largely located in the northern regions of the park. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Camp Meals in Full board
