Day 1: Visit Lake Manyara
8 hours Eco lodge
Manyara National Park — home to grasslands, forests, marshlands, scrub and parklands punctuated with acacia trees. This is one of Tanzania’s smaller parks but still offers a rewarding and diverse safari experience. The lakeshore at Manyara teems with birdlife, and while you are looking for the birds, you might spot one of the elusive tree-climbing lions
Day 2: Serengeti National Park
9 hours Camping
Depart your camp this morning after breakfast and 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
Day 3: Serengeti National Park
10 hours Camping
Full day in the Serengeti to explore this amazing eco-system, find the wildebeest migration, search for a wild dog lair, watch the huge Grumeti crocodiles or spot a sleeping leopard up a tree, follow the circling vultures to a recent lion kill or study the birdlife. You can choose to stay out all day or return to your lodge for lunch and a siesta before venturing out again in the cooler evening temperatures and then get back to your Camp before sunset.
Day 4: Central Serengeti – Ndutu
10 hours Camping
After breakfast we will head to the Lake Ndutu area, situated in the Ngorongoro conservation area, part of the southern Serengeti eco-system. Lake Ndutu is alkaline, like most of the other Rift lakes, however the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife. We arrive in time for lunch at the camp, and after lunch we will do an afternoon game drive in the Ndutu area. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to April. The area is usually heavily populated with elephant, birds and resident game.
Day 5: Ndutu – Ngorongoro Crater
10 hours Eco lodge
After breakfast drive and descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque conserved area, is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot.
Day 6: Depart
After breakfast, return to Zanzibar, stopping for lunch at a popular local restaurant, before a transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
