4 Days Safari Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro & Serengeti
Day 1: After breakfast, drive to Lake Manyara National Park.
The first view as you approach Lake Manyara National Park is very spectacular, regardless of direction. When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley the escarpment horns on the horizon forming an impressive backdrop to the lake. If you come from the west and pause at the top of the escarpment, the park lies in a green strip below you and the lake glistening in the sunlight. This beautiful park is at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment and comprises of forest, woodland, grasslands, swamps and part of Lake Manyara itself.

- Afternoon game drive in the park.
- Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Lodge/Twiga Campsite.
Day 2: After breakfast, transfer to Serengeti National Park.
The Park is teaming with wildlife and it is thought that over million large mammals roam the plains. The extensive grasslands are interspersed with “kopjes” – which are roday outcrops like islands in the flat plains, each with its own wildlife communities.
- Picnic lunch enroute
- Evening game drive around seronera area
- Dinner and overnight at Seronera lodge/campsite at seronera.
Day 3: Sunrise adventure in Serengeti.
It is migration for which Serengeti is perhaps is most famous, over 1.5 million wildebeests and about 400,000 zebras take part in this migration which essentially involves three famous and important protected areas – Serengeti and Ngorongoro in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara reserve in Kenya. It is a clockwise migratory movement during which Sequence, the animals start arriving at the eastern Serengeti shortgrass plains in late November- December where calving of the wildebeests takes place. At the end of the long rains, the migration heads west wards and then turns north to arrive in Masai Meru reserve in late August – September
- Lunch at the lodge/ campsite
- Afternoon transfer to Ngorongoro and game drive enroute.
- Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro lodge/Simba campsite
Day 4: Morning adventure on the crater floor (home of the big five).
The animals here are not trapped, but there are some migratory movements in and out of the crater. Because of the protected nature of the habitat and the availability of grazing pastures and water, much of the animal population has become resident year round. This makes Ngorongoro an ideal area for game viewing.
Ngorongoro Crater is the 8th wonder of the world. It hosts an estimated 30,000 large mammals on its floor, including large herds of buffaloes, wildebeests, elands, hartebeest elephants, hippos, lions and the endangered black rhino. The crater being 12 miles wide 2,000 feet deep, and covering an area of 102 square miles, it is the largest intact volcanic crater on the earth. Picnic lunch at the crater floor, afternoon game drive on the crater floor. Late afternoon transfer to Kilimanjaro International Airport to connect with your flight back home.
