Located beneath the cliffs of the Manyara Escarpment, on the edge of the Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park offers varied ecosystems, incredible bird life, and breathtaking views. Located on the way to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, Lake Manyara National Park is well worth a stop in its own right.

Full board accommodation is included in the tour price. (L, D) Overnight at www.hotelsandlodges-tanzania.com/  or www.serenahotels.com

 

DAY 2: SERENGETI
Transfer from Lake Manyara National Park with your picnic lunch boxes for Serengeti National Park which is easily Tanzania’s most famous national park, and it’s also the largest, at 14,763 square kilometers of protected area that borders Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Park. Its far-reaching plains of endless grass, tinged with the twisted shadows of acacia trees, have made it the quintessential image of a wild and untarnished Africa. Its large stone kopjes are home to rich ecosystems, and the sheer magnitude and scale of life that the plains support is staggering. All meals and overnight stay at Seronera Wildlife Lodge/ Serengeti Sopa Lodge- (B, L, D)

DAY 04: SERENGETI- NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA:
Ngorongoro crater is a natural amphitheatre created about 2 million years ago when the cone of a volcano collapsed into itself, leaving a 100sq. mile cauldron-like cavity. This caldera, protected by a circular unbroken 2,00 foot high rim, contains everything necessary for Africa's wildlife to exist and thrive. Game viewing vehicles descend the steep crater wall every morning and spend the day on grass plains that are teeming with animals. Predators such as lion, spotted hyena, leopard, jackal and cheetah lord over a domain that swarms with zebra, wildebeest, gazelle and other herbivores. Tanzania's few remaining black rhino are regularly sighted in the crater, as are large herds of buffalo. In the lake on the crater floor and in the Ngoitokitok swamps, reside plenty of hippos who remain particularly submerged during the day and graze on grass at night. The stunning pink flamingo is also resident at the Crater

Early morning departure to Ngorongoro Crater for a full day game viewing with picnic lunches.
Game viewing at Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main draw card for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater’s ridge, tall Masaai herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries. Meals and overnight stay at Wildlife Lodges | Sopa Lodges. (B, L,D) www.sopalodges.com
