On your first safari set out to observe hippos, elephants, giraffes, flamingo and tree-climbing lions in Lake Manyara National Park. This small park lies at the base of the western escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. Though it’s not a part of the greater Serengeti ecosystem, most of the same species of wildlife are found here.
Make the thrilling drive up to one of earth’s wonders – the eleven-mile diameter and green-animal nurturing caldera better known as Ngorongoro Crater. Descend 2,000 feet to the floor of the crater, where volcanic slopes shelter an astonishing number of animals. Close to 25,000 animals roam the caldera, including the rare rhino. You are never out of sight of wildlife. Enjoy the picnic lunch on the crater’s verdant floor.
After breakfast, board your private car and drive to the central Serengeti plains. Settle into your camp before heading out for an afternoon game drive. Return to the camp for a hot shower, ice cold drinks around the fire and a delicious dinner under the stars.
You’ll have two days to explore the abundant wildlife in this area. Central Serengeti consists of a network of river valleys that ensure year-round water supplies and keep the region incredibly rich in wildlife throughout the year.
Continue your safari to the northern Serengeti in search of the Great Migration. Whether they animals peacefully spread out in their thousands across the plains or gathering in a frenzy on the Mara River banks, it’s always an unforgettable spectacle.
During the three-night stay here, we hope that you witness the dramatic river crossing of the wildebeest and zebra herds.
