Safari at a Glance

After lunch, you can relax and enjoy the lodge or you might enjoy a visit to the local orphanage, or a coffee plantation tour.
Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater
At Sunrise, we descend 600 metres into the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive. A breathtaking natural wonder the crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Animals that you may find in the crater include wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, and hippo. Large breeding herds of elephant can sometimes be seen wandering throughout the forest rim searching for food. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is the dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetah and leopard. Ascend the crater in the early afternoon and return to your accommodation at Ngorongoro Farm House.
Day 4: Serengeti National Park
After an early breakfast we will be departing through the rolling hills of the Ngorongoro Highlands as we make our way towards the world famous Serengeti National Park . On the way we will stop at Olduvai Gorge to visit the museum. This world famous archaeological site contains fossils of our early human ancestors, thought to be over 2 million years old. From here, you will continue on a game drive that will take you over the majestic plains of the Serengeti National Park. You will be arrive at your accommodation at Seronera Wildlife Lodge in time to enjoy a hot lunch. In the afternoon you will enjoy a game drive. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest and most popular park, also a world heritage site and proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder. The park is famed for its annual migration, when some 6 million hooves pound the open plains in search of fresh grazing. The Serengeti offers amongst the most scintillating game viewing in Africa. Expect to see great herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, topi, eland, hippo, leopard, wildebeest, zebra and much, much more.
Day 5 & 6: Serengeti National Park
For the next 2 days you will enjoy game drives in the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is perhaps the most impressive wildlife sanctuary in the world.
