Day one takes you on six hour drive to reach Serengeti National Park, classified as on of the main sites of the World Heritage by UNESCO.  Serengeti is the largest National Park in Tanzania (5,700 square miles), the oldest (created in 1951), and with good reason, the most famous in East Africa.

Predators find this a perfect hunting ground - lions, leopards, cheetahs, spotted hyenas and smaller predators like servals are the lords of savannah and acacia woods. The safari (journey) you experience here in your open sun roof land cruiser will be one of the most amazing and beautiful in Africa! 


Day two includes a full day of game viewing that will give you wonderful opportunities to experience front row views of the Park's amazing wildlife and "endless plains."


Following a morning game drive and picnic lunch on Day three, you will drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, classified as another main World Heritage site by UNESCO. On the way, you may visit an authentic Maasai village to experience the color and culture of Tanzania's most populated native tribe. 


On Day four, you will descend from the Ngorongoro Crater rim approximately 2,000 feet to the crater floor - a real Noah's ark.  Its vast plains, strewn with volcanic domes, small craters and tropical forests, accommodate the main animal species of Eastern Africa - lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo, cheetahs, zebras, gazelles, gnus, hyenas and jackals - in all, according to Park Rangers, 30,000 animals. You will spend a full day with time out for a picnic lunch, in the Crater.


After breakfast on Day five you will transfer in your Land Cruiser to Lake Manyara National Park. You will enter the park for a half day game drive including picnic lunch.  Manyara is an ornithological paradise that includes thousands of flamingos and many species of lakeside birds, as well as a surprising spectacle of lionesses sleeping in high trees, not far from blue monkeys.  The very vegetation of the park also accommodates many giraffes, elephants, buffalo, zebras and hippos.

All of these animals drift out of the Park from November to June, leaving giraffes, Kirk's dik dik, warthogs, kudus, impalas, and waterbucks, who are year around residents along with 450 species of birds, including 49 raptor species. Following  picnic lunch in the Park and by bi-mid afternoon, you will transfer to Arusha to spend the evening.
