Seronera Wildlife Lodge is artfully constructed around a rocky outcrop from glass and wood elements, perfectly blending into its surrounding. Next to the lodge, several waterholes attract, day and night, the most amazing animals, providing a unique opportunity for a close encounter with the Big Five.
Seronera Lodge is only five minutes from the departing point of the hot-air balloon safaris, which offer a thrilling bird's-eye wildlife perspective of the vast plains of The Serengeti. From its privileged location, the Seronera's 75 rooms afford stunning views of over a million wildebeest as they migrate from Kenya to Lake Victoria to escape the drought.
Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge is strategically perched on the rim of this “garden of eden', affording unbelievable views plunging down over the crater floor, 7,500 feet above sea level. The lodge is elegantly built mainly from natural stone and local wood, harmoniously merging with its natural surroundings, and it is provided with panoramic windows that encompass superb views of the crater’s great bowl.

Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge invites you to an unforgettable safari experience from its privileged location, both for game viewing and scenery.
After enjoying a long leisurely game drive between herds of wild animals and along miles of Africa’s seemingly endless roads, you come over a slight rise and the lodge appears almost immediately below you.
Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the Tarangire National Park, home to the greatest concentration of elephants in Africa. Many can be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter.
At 08:30 a.m, you will drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara Park and have game drives with picnic lunch boxes. Lake Manyara National Park is a small but scenic safari park, excellent for birdwatching and a good area to find elephants, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion. Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Serena.
After breakfast, you will depart for Serengeti National Park. You will have picnic lunch boxes and game drives en-route towards Serengeti National Park. The national park is broadly divided into three distinct areas, the Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards through the Lamai Wedge to the Maasai Mara.
Most visitors enter the Serengeti through the southern Naabi Hill Gate, which opens onto the Seronera Valley, a vibrant wildlife area at the heart of the Serengeti. Dinner and overnight will be spent at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge.
At 06:30 a.m, you will have an early morning game drive at the Serengeti National Park, late breakfast at camp, followed by another game drive. Dinner and overnight will be at the Serengeti Sopa Lodge.

After breakfast, you will have a game drive at the Ngorongoro Crater and bring picnic lunch boxes with you. The crater floor consists of a number of ecological environments that include grassland, swamps, forests, and Lake Makat, a central soda lake filled by the Munge River. All these various habitats attract various wildlife to drink, wallow, graze, hide, or climb.
Later in the afternoon, you will drive to Tarangire National Park for dinner and overnight at the Tarangire Sopa Lodge.

Hemingway describes Lake Manyara National Park’s magnificent hunting country in “The Green Hills of Africa”. Mahogany, sausage tree, and croton are alive with blue monkeys and vervets. Elephants feed off fallen fruit while bushbuck, waterbuck, baboons, aardvark, civet, the shy pangolin, and leopard as well as the black rhino, all make their home in the forest.
Manyara is sanctuary to elusive buffalo and hippo, giraffe, impala, zebra, and the famous residents, the tree-climbing lions. Lake Manyara itself is a magnet for birdlife and a kaleidoscope of different species can be found around its shores, including huge flocks of flamingoes.
The park is ideal for a day trip. A four-wheel drive is recommended during the rains. The dry season is from June to September and January to February.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a huge area containing active volcanoes, mountains, archeological sites, rolling plains, forests, lakes, dunes, and of course, Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Gorge. The views at the rim of Ngorongoro Crater are sensational.
On the crater floor, grassland blends into swamps, lakes, rivers, woodland and mountains, all a heaven for wildlife, including the densest predator population in Africa. The crater is home to up to 25,000 large mammals, mainly grazers, gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and warthog.
You will not find giraffe as there is not much to eat at tree level, or topi, because the competition with wildebeest is too fierce, nor will you find impala. The crater elephants are strangely, mainly bulls. There are a small number of black rhinos here, too.
The birdlife is seasonal and is affected by the ratio of soda to fresh water in Lake Magadi on the crater floor. In the northern part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you will find Olmoti and Empakaai Craters, Lake Natron, and Oldoinyo Lengai, Mountain of God, as named by the Maasai. Lake Natron is the only known breeding ground for East Africa’s flamingoes.
The ruins of a terraced stone city and complex irrigation system lie on the eastern side of Empakaai, the Engakura Ruins. Their origins are a mystery as there is no tradition of stone building in this part of Africa.
The Serengeti is one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. This vast area of land supports the greatest remaining concentration of plain game in Africa, on a scale unparalleled anywhere else in the world. The name comes from the Maasai “siringet”, meaning endless plains.
Equal in size to Northern Ireland, the park contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The annual migration of more than 1.5 million wildebeests as well as hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelles is triggered by the rains.
The wet season starts in November and lasts until about May. Generally the herds congregate and move out at the end of May. Their movement is a continual search for grass and water, the moving mass of animals requiring over 4,000 tons of grass each day. The exodus coincides with the breeding season which causes fights among the males.
As the dry season sets in the herds drift out of the west, one group to the north, the other north-east heading for the permanent waters of the northern rivers and the Mara. The immigration instinct is so strong that animals die in the rivers as they dive from the banks into the raging waters, to be dispatched by crocodiles.
The survivors concentrate in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve until the grazing there is exhausted, when they turn south along the eastern and final stage of the migration route. Before the main exodus, the herds are a spectacular sight, massed in huge numbers with the weak at the tail end of the procession, followed by the patient, vigilant predators.
The vegetation in the Serengeti ranges from the short and long grass plains in the south, to the acacia savannah in the center and the wooded grassland concentrated around tributaries of the Grumeti and Mara rivers. The western corridor is a region of wooded highland and extensive plains reaching to the edge of Lake Victoria.
The Seronera Valley in the Serengeti is famous for the abundance lion and leopard that can usually be seen quite easily. The adult male lions of the Serengeti have characteristic black manes.
The permanent water supply of the park means that during the summer, the animal population here rivals that of the Serengeti with wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant, hartebeest, buffalo, gerenuk, fringe eared oryx, and flocks of birds of many different species. Prime game viewing months are between September and December.
You will be served breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian meal options are available.
Short walks and biking can be done in the evenings while staying in Manyara.
