The amazing and diverse wildlife to follow include the Big Five, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest, crocodile, wild dog, and numerous bird species. Pack your bags and book a seat for a marvelous safari in some of Africa's most famous sites.
Day 1: Serengeti National Park
In the morning at 07:00 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and drive 382km to Serengeti (about 7 hours drive). You will pass the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before you reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is the largest park in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes including short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, mountains, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. Depending on the season, you will witness the migration of thousands of animals for which this park is famous. During the short rainy season in November and December, the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they return up north. Our overnight stay will be at Serengeti Safari Lodge in Serengeti National Park.
Day 2: Serengeti National Park
You will have a full day of excursions in the Serengeti National Park on this day. Go on morning and afternoon game drives, and enjoy the famous "Serengeti sunset" from the camp. The center of the Serengeti, called Seronera, is a network of rivers that ensure dependable water supplies which attracts wildlife throughout the year. It is here that you’ll have your best opportunity to spot the “Big Five” (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard). There will be no shortage of animal sightings as the presence of permanent mud pools and shade attract giraffes, impalas, warthogs, and hippos. You might also catch a glimpse of cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals. Overnight will be at Serengeti Safari Lodge.
Day 3: Serengeti Ngorongoro
After breakfast, you will take a 3-hour drive to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area for the Ngorongoro Crater descent which will be followed by a game drive. At midday, you will have your lunch at the base of the crater. Ngorongoro is one of the 8 Wonders of the World, and the crater is a very important refuge for a variety of wildlife. Most commonly seen are big elephant bulls and the vulnerable species of black rhinos. The crater is also home to big herds of wildebeest and zebra, Thomson's and Grant's gazelle, hippopotamus, Cape buffalo, prides of lion, hyena, serval cat, golden and black-backed jackal, and close to 400 species of birds.
Upon finishing your afternoon game drive, proceed back to Arusha/Kilimanjaro. This is where your tour ends.
