Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will drive straight to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop at a viewing point. After that, you will descend into the 600m-deep crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in East Africa to see the Big Five. It is one of the world's most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Maasai community. On reaching the crater's edge, the 20km-diameter caldera opens up before you in all its glory, and you will descend into the crater on an adventurous trail.

This World Heritage Site is seasonally home to over 25,000 animals, including a wide range of bird species, hyenas, and the endangered black rhinos. We will serve you a hot lunch at a picnic spot near the hippo pool. After lunch, we will drive you straight to the heart of Serengeti National Park.

Serengeti to Lake Manyara

Serengeti to Lake Manyara

Today you continue your safari in the Serengeti National Park. Its stunning landscape can be seen in some of the most impressive nature documentaries. The endless plains and abundance of wildlife are unsurpassed. It is a true spectacle and impressive to watch millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles thunder across the endless plains of the Serengeti. Together with your private guide, you will be looking for the herds across the plains. Apart from the migratory animals, you will also get to see lots of other animals like lions, cheetahs, leopards, and many more. Expect to be impressed by the natural beauty of Africa’s most famous park.

If you like to watch wildlife from another perspective, we recommend that you go on a balloon safari. It is an amazing experience to drift silently above the plains with herds of wildlife.
