Lake Manyara is an alkaline lake and at certain times of the year hosts thousands of flamingoes and a diversity of other bird’s life. The lake and its environment is also home to herbivores such as hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes.

After breakfast you will drive to the shores of Lake Eyasi the home of nomadic, hunter-gather Hadzabe bushmen. Lake Eyasi is very scenic soda lake found on the southern border of the Ngorongoro conservation area. You will be introduced to the extraordinary people tribe inhabits the shores of lake Eyasi as do the Nilotic speaking Datoga tribe. You will visit these tribes which will include a visit to their homesteads, learn about their way of life, animal tracking, medicinal plants, and much more. Some wildlife and a wide range of bird species can be viewed during walks around the lake, which can be arranged. Later return to your lodge or camp for dinner& overnight.
After breakfast you will drive to Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of 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, featuring 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.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge/ camp
You will have another 2 days in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, be in the middle of the migration, sometimes surrounded by wildebeest, sometimes by zebras, which travel with the wildebeest.. This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain games; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions and it you are lucky the elusive leopard and cheetah, as well as huge amounts of interesting bird life, from the elegant secretary birds to the flightless ostrich.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge / camp
After breakfast, we descend into this magnificent crater for 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. The Ngorongoro crater is the world’s biggest whole volcanic caldera and is arguably the most stunning arena. It is frequently described as one of the wonders of the world, not only because of its geological magnificence, but also because it serves as an extraordinary natural sanctuary for some of Africa’s largest populations of large mammals. Another big draw card to this picturesque park is the dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge/camp
