The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.

Day 2 Lake Manyara to Serengeti Plains
Non game-viewing travel time: 5 hours Distance: 205 km After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park. Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area campsite. Main Destination: Serengeti National Park Best Time to VisitJune to February (Areas are best at different times) High SeasonJuly to March (The Seronera area is crowded) Best WeatherJune to October (Little to no rainfall) Accommodation: Budget camping • Bordering Serengeti NP without fences Meals & Drinks: • All meals included • Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 3 Serengeti national park
Today game drive will be a long the Sogore River Circuit which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River and which is good for viewing Lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings. In the afternoon we will follow the Kopjes Circuit, which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes, which usually attract a number of lion and some formidably large cobras. Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons – including lions, which like to lie in wait for animals coming to drink! Main Destination: Serengeti National Park Accommodation: Budget camping • Bordering Serengeti NP without fences Meals & Drinks: • All meals included • Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 4 Serengeti Plains to Ngorongoro crater
Distance: 145 km After breakfast at the camp we depart for Ngorongoro Conservation area. We will stopover at Olduvai Gorge boasting with a history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here that the anthropologists Dr. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution. After lunch descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a safari tour. Water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog and giant African elephants. A big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, like lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline in the southwestern corner which is one of the main features of the crater. Overnight at the camp. Main Destination: Ngorongoro Crater Best Time to VisitJune to September (General wildlife viewing is best) High SeasonMost of the year – July to March (Expect crowds) Best WeatherJune to October (Rainfall is little to none) Accommodation: Budget camping • On the crater rim of Ngorongoro Meals & Drinks: • All meals included • Drinking water (Other drinks not included)
