Moshi Town – Tarangire National Park. Pick up from Moshi town and transfer to Tarangire national park. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we head into the Tarangire National Park for an afternoon game drive. Tarangire is well known for its large herds of Elephant population.
You will proceed with the game drive until late afternoon when you will drive to Fanaka Lodge Campsite.
Dinner and overnight at a lodge or campsite in Tarangire
Tarangire National Park to Serengeti National Park. 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 at a lodge or campsite in Serengeti
Serengeti National Park. We do an after breakfast game viewing drive along the Sogore River Circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River, and which is good for possible Lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings.
The Visitor Centre close to the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and public campsites, is well worth a visit after the morning’s game drive. This nicely designed centre offers some interesting wildlife displays as well as a gift shop selling information leaflets and maps of the area. The centre also has a shop where cold drinks and snacks can be purchased, as well as a picnic area and information trail up and around a nearby kopje. We will enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch at the centre in the shade of the giant acacia trees.
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!
Dinner and overnight at a lodge or campsite in Serengeti
Serengeti National Park Ngorongoro Crater rim. Morning and afternoon game drive in Serengeti plains with the possibility to see all big predators, reptiles and large herds of herbivores including wildebeests. The wildebeest migrations are normally in Serengeti from November to July and the early of August. During this season of the year the game of chasing and killing is not rare to be seen.
In the late afternoon, depart Serengeti and drive to Ngorongoro crater rim with Game drive and Picnic Lunch en route.
Dinner and overnight at a lodge or campsite in Ngorongoro
Ngorongoro Crater – Moshi. Breakfast at around 0600am. Take Picnic Lunch with you and drive 15 minutes into the Ngorongoro Crater floor for the Game drive. View the various resident animals on the crater floor. The largest unbroken caldera in the world, Ngorongoro has an area of 260 kilometers and a depth of 610 meters.
The crater provides a protected habitat for thousands of mammals and birds. The entire day is spent on the crater floor viewing lion, hyena, wildebeest, zebra, black rhinoceros, and many species of small antelopes. The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area is located between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara. It is home to the famous Ngorongoro Crater which is the largest unbroken caldera in the world.
The Crater is a spectacular setting in which to experience your African safari. Some scientists maintain that before it erupted, Ngorongoro Crater the largest intact caldera in the world would have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa. Covering a mere 260 square kilometers (100 square miles), the 600 meter (1969 foot)-deep Crater is home to a permanent population of more than 30 000 animals. It is one of the few places in Africa where you stand a very good chance of seeing the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) in the course of a game- drive.
The local Maasai have permission to graze their cattle on the Crater floor, and it is not unusual to see Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing together with lion mere meters away. There are around 1000 lions in the Crater, approximately 20 black rhino, and the spectacular Lerai Forest is one of the best places in Africa to spot leopard. This is one of the natural wonders of the world.
Picnic Lunch in the Crater. Late afternoon before 6:00pm drive to Lake Manyara – Mto wa Mbu area for overnight
Dinner and overnight at a lodge or campsite in Mto wa Mbu
Lake Manyara National Park to Moshi town. After breakfast, you leave early to the Manyara National park. The scenic beauty of Manyara is the main reason to travel here and certainly deserves a visit. But the game viewing pales into insignificance compared to the quality of game viewing on offer in Tarangire, the Ngorongoro and the Serengeti.
Being famous for its tree-climbing lions, flamingos, breathtaking scenery and the soda-ash lake in the center makes it reason enough to visit here for a day.
