In the morning after breakfast we will collect you from the hotel and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park lies and is bordered between the Rift Valley Escarpment and the dusty Masai Steppe. On the western side is a forest and also the alkaline Manyara lake which covers the largest area of the park.
The park was established in 1960 to give the elephants, giraffes, buffalo, antelopes and gazelles a protected habitat. The Lake Manyara National Park is also home to the tree climbing lions – tree climbing is a trait not normally found among big cats and it is quite a sight to see.
Upon entering the park your driver will open the vehicle roof and you can then start your wild life watching in earnest. In the late afternoon you will arrive at
Maramboi Tented Lodge for overnight. Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
After breakfast the safari tour marks the start of our program 5 days Serengeti migration-safari. At midday you will reach the plains of Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti National Park is the second largest park in Tanzania and is about the same size as Hawaii. The southern part is dominated by grassland and is therefore good hunting ground for the cheetah, while to the north / western parts a more hilly tree savanna landscape dominates.
The Serengeti migration is famous of up to one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebras. This migration has become to be known as the “Great wildebeest Migration” and each year this natural spectacle is guaranteed. This in itself sets the Serengeti aside as a unique place to watch and observe wildlife.
You will have your evening meal and overnight stay at Kati Kati Tented Lodge . Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
This is another third night of our program: 5 days Serengeti migration-safari. The whole day is devoted to you to observe the wildlife in the Serengeti National Park. Generally the herds of wildebeest and zebras during the short rain season of October to November tend to be found moving from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. They return slowly during the longer rain season in April, May and June. Fluctuations in precipitation can affect the animals location from year to year, however your guide will know the exact location of the animals and the best vantage spots.
You will overnight again at Kati Kati Tented Lodge . Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

After lunch at a picnic place you will slowly drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way you will pass the Olduvai Gorge which became world known due to the archeological work of the English research couple Leaky.
