Day 2

Karatu to Serengeti National Park

Karatu to Serengeti National Park

After an early wake-up and breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel and driven toward 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. It features 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.

In the evening, you will be transferred to the lodge for an overnight stay.

Main Destination:
Serengeti National Park
Best Time To Visit January to February and June to October (Different areas are best at different times)
High Season July to March (The Seronera area is crowded)

Day 3

Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater

Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater

The early morning is a good time to watch wildlife so you will be up early to join a game drive. You will return to the camp for brunch before heading out for another game drive in the park. In the Seronera region, you will often see wildebeests and zebras in close proximity to lions and other predators such as leopards and cheetahs. After a picnic lunch, you will continue your journey toward the Ngorongoro Crater. Once you have reached the crater rim, you will enjoy fantastic views of this 600 m-deep collapsed volcano.

You will stay at the Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge situated on the crater edge. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided.

Main Destination:
Serengeti National Park
Accommodation:
Rhino Lodge
  • Mid-range lodge located on the crater rim of Ngorongoro Crater
Meals & Drinks:
  • All meals included
  • Drinking water & beer and wine (Other drinks not included)

Day 4

Crater to Karatu

Crater to Karatu

After breakfast, we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a half-day game drive. The Ngorongoro 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. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most famous and interesting of Tanzania’s national parks because here you can find the greatest number of different animal species including herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephant.

Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is the dense population of predators which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopards. After lunch, we will start ascending from the crater and return to Karatu at Eileen's Trees Inn.

Main Destination:
Ngorongoro Crater
Best Time To Visit June to October (Wildlife viewing is best)
High Season Most of the year – July to March (Expect crowds)
Best Weather June to October (Rainfall is little to none)
