Day 2: Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, leave for Lake Manyara National Park. Upon arrival, you have the option to do a walking safari (escorted with an armed ranger) and have a game drive in the park. The park gate located roughly 130 kilometers is almost 2 hours and 10 minutes from Arusha town. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressive tusked elephants.

  • Main destination: Lake Manyara National Park
  • Accommodation: Endoro Lodge
  • Meals & drinks: All meals include drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 3-4: Lake Manyara to Ndutu Area (Migration Viewing)

After breakfast we will depart to the Lake Ndutu area, situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, part of the southern Serengeti eco-system. There you will spend two days. Lake Ndutu is alkaline, like most of the other rift lakes, however, the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to April. The area is usually heavily populated with elephants, birds, and resident game.

On day 4, enjoy a full day game drive in the Ndutu area. Explore the range of different habitats that include swamps, woodland, soda lakes, and the world famous Serengeti short grass plains. See great herds of wildebeest and zebra. Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born and within 3 days they are normally strong enough to keep up with the herd.

  • Main destination: Ndutu
  • Accommodation: Serengeti Acacia Camps
  • Meals & drinks: All meals include drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 5-6: Explore Serengeti National Park

Have a breakfast at the camp and a morning game drive at Ndutu Area viewing the great migration. Depart in the afternoon towards the central Serengeti National Park, also known as the Seronera which is roughly 60 kilometers from southern plains. We descend into the heart of wild Africa (the Serengeti) with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti.

On day 6, you will have an early morning sunrise game drive at Central Seronera. You will go back to the camp for the hot lunch, and later have an evening game drive at Central Seronera, Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wonder. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration.

Day 7: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro

This day we will start early in the morning for the game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater. You will cover a distance of about 145 kilometers in approximately 3 hours. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds, and other species. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is an extensive highland area along the eastern arm of the Rift Valley. In the evening, go back to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
