Day 2
After breakfast depart for Lake Manyara National Park with lunch boxes. At just 325 square kilometers Lake Manyara National Park is a relatively small slice of land. It is a beautiful little park, tucked in between the Rift Escarpment and the lake itself. Here you can see a lot of birds, elephants, giraffe, hippo and many other wild animals.
Early afternoon we drive to Karatu Simba Lodge to enjoy the special atmosphere at this beautiful lodge. FB

Day 3
After breakfast we start our drive to Ngorongoro for a half day game drive in the famous crater. The crater has been described as one of the great natural wonders of the world. Eight million years ago, the Ngorongoro Crater was an active volcano but its cone collapsed, forming the crater that is 610 meters deep, almost 20 kilometers in diameter, and covers an area of 311 sq. km. The crater is home to many species of wild game and birds, including the endangered black rhino.

Dinner and overnight at Rhino Lodge overlooking the Ngorongoro Forest.
 

 

Day 4
After breakfast we continue to Serengeti - the park of all parks. We drive through Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop along the way for a visit in a maasai village. Hopefully we see a lot of wildlife on our way to the lodge and you might fall asleep to the roar of a distant lion. Most of the day is spent in Serengeti and we are looking for wild animals and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Late afternoon we go to the Ndutu Lodge Serengeti for a nice shower, dinner and overnight.

Your stay here can be an incomparable wildlife experience. Covering an area of 14,763 square kilometers, equal in size to Northern Ireland, the world famous Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest park, and one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. This is where the famous migration of 1.5 million wildebeest and thousands of Zebras take place. Its name comes from the Maasai word Siringet, meaning ‘endless plains’.
