Lake Manyara → Ngorongoro

After breakfast you will enjoy a morning game drive in Lake Manyara National Park where you will most likely have your first encounter with lions.

Sitting on the Great Rift Valley that stretches along all East Africa, Lake Manyara is a shallow alkaline lake surrounded by grassy floodplains in northern Tanzania. It is a compact and densely populated reserve with buffalos, elephants, leopards, impala, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, baboons, hippos and an astonishing 300 bird species. Most importantly is that it was in Lake Manyara National Park where lion prides were first spotted climbing trees, a behavior more frequently seen in leopards but that has now spread to other reserves in northern Tanzania and Uganda. 

After the game drive barbeque lunch at Lake viewpoint and transfer to Ngorongoro Crater. 

Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge.

After breakfast, you will descend 600m to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater and enjoy of a half-day game drive. 

A wildlife oasis set on the immense crater of a collapsed volcano, the Ngorongoro Crater is simply one of the most breathtaking safari locations in all Africa. Its lush vegetation has created a unique ecosystem that shelters over 20,000 animals including elephants, buffalo, zebras, gazelles and one of the strongest black rhino populations in Tanzania. The enclosed geography of the crater has resulted in the close interaction among animals, with lions hunting their prey near safari vehicles and the best opportunity to witness a lion kill. 

This day you will have a open picnic lunch in the crater and then extend your game drive to the afternoon.

Ngorongoro → Serengeti

After breakfast we will drive to Serengeti National Park via the Oldupai Gorge, an archaeological site of paramount importance where some of the earliest hominids fossils have been unearthed. 

A massive ecosystem that extends across northern Tanzania and southwest Kenya, the rolling savannah plains interspersed with rocky kopjes of the Serengeti contain the largest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa. It is one of the few reserves where, if given sufficient time, you can spot each and every animal of the Big 5: lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant.

Lunch at the lodge in Serengeti followed by an afternoon game drive.

After breakfast, have morning and afternoon game drives in the vast Serengeti National Park.

The Serengeti is home to an astonishing range of species in large numbers including millions of wildebeest, half a million zebra, hundreds of thousands of gazelles and most remarkably over 3,000 lions, 1,000 leopards and around 8,000 hyenas that feed on this prey. This is heightened in November-December during the Great Migration, which sees immense herds of game returning from the neighbouring Masai Mara and improving significantly the chances to see a lion kill.
