You will visit the three most well known reserves in North parks in Tanzania the Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
Day 1- Leave Moshi – Lake Manyara National Park.
In the morning we will collect you from your hotel and take you to Lake Manyara National Park. Ernest Hemingway spoke of this area as the most beautiful that he had ever seen. It is easy to see why for to the west the Rift-Valley-Escarpment rises to almost 600m, and to the east the seemingly endless Maasai Steppe stretches to the horizon. In between lies the shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara where the flamingoes seem to turn the shallow waters a pink hue. On the lake’s perimeter a diverse range of animals can be found such as elephants, giraffes, buffalo, antilope and gazelles. The Manyara National Park is also well known for it’s lions which is like to climb the trees- something which is quite unusual for big cats. In the late afternoon you will leave Lake Manyara National Park and spend the night at Ngorongoro Farm House Lodge. Lunch, Dinner & Breakfast.
Day 2-Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti National Park is famous for the ‘Great Migration’, over one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand plus zebras each year follow the rains. In October and November they travel from the mountains of the north, southwards to the plains seeking lush pastures. After the great rainy season in April, May, and June the herds then make their returnward journey. Even without this mass migration, the Serengeti is still an exciting and spectacular place that still cannot fail to enthrall. You will have your evening meal and an overnight stay at Kati Kati Tented Lodge.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
Day 3-Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Dawn is the best time to watch wildlife, therefore before breakfast the first wildlife safari of the day takes place. After breakfast another explorative tour of the Serengeti National Park follows. Here in the Senonera region you can often watch wildebeest and zebras next to lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs. Lunch is taken at a picnic spot before a slow drive to the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way you will pass the Olduvai Gorge where the English pair, Louis and Mary Leak pioneered excavation work. In the sixties some of the earliest archaeological deposits of human evolution was found and a small museum (visit optional) documents these discoveries. Once you reach the crater’s rim you will be able to see into this massive caldera and down to its floor which lies 600m below. Overnight at Farm house Lodge you can enjoy the wonderful view across the caldera as the sun sets. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
Day 4-Ngorongoro Crater – Moshi
After Breakfast will be at day break followed by a drive on a small road through a forested region to the crater’s floor where the landscape turns to savanna with scattered acacia trees. Here the wildlife is just breathtaking; with a little luck in just a few hours you can observe the big five – lions, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros,and leopards. After a morning full of wildlife watching and lunch in the crater, you will return to Moshi in the afternoon. Breakfast; Lunch
