Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park - Lake Natron

After breakfast, you will be heading to Lake Natron. Just past Mto wa Mbu village, you will leave the asphalted road along the East African Rift Valley and the drive continues on adventurous slopes. The drive leads past Maasai villages and the holy mountain of the Maasai, the Ol Doinyo Lengai. As soon as the Maasai village Ngare Sero comes into sight, it is not far to the lake.

The outlet Lake Natron is the home of a remarkable variety of birds, in particular about 2.5 million dwarf flamingos, the lake serves them as a regular breeding ground. The water is strongly saline and the basis of life for unicellular algae and bacteria, which are responsible for the planar red-brown to purple-violet coloring of the lake.

Day 3: Lake Natron - Serengeti National Park

After an early breakfast, you will head towards the Serengeti. On adventurous slopes, it goes the Rift Valley up into the wide plains of the Serengeti. The park was already founded in 1951 and is thus the oldest one in Tanzania. It is the heart of a vast ecosystem, whose species-rich animal world is unique in the world.

Together with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the Serengeti National Park is one of the largest natural migration systems for wild animals. Annually between the three mentioned conservation areas migrate over 1.4 million gnus, almost 300,000 Thomson's gazelles, about 200,000 zebras and several thousands topis with the rainy seasons to the areas with the greener and lush meadows.

With about 3 million larger mammals, the Serengeti is the national park with the richest wildlife worldwide. Around two-thirds make up the above-mentioned animal species, furthermore the park is the home to many other animal species, such as giraffe, buffalo, hyena, elephant or crocodile. Particularly large is the population of feline predators, about 3000 lions, a good 300 cheetahs and an estimated 400-700 leopards have their hunting ground here.

After the game drive, you will stay at the Lobo Campsite which is located in the northern part of the park.

  • Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

You will spend the night in the Simba Camp on the upper crater rim, where you can enjoy a spectacular view and a great sunset.

  • Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha

Before breakfast, you can enjoy the fantastic view over the Ngorongoro Crater in good weather. After breakfast, it goes on partly adventurous roads about 600 meters downward into the crater. The crater has a diameter of 17 to 21 kilometers and is the home of a great animal world. Nearly all the biodiversity of the East African Savannah has gathered here, only giraffes and a few other animal species for which the rock faces are too steep do not live in the crater.

Depending on the season, 15,000 to 25,000 animals are gathering here, thereof more than two thirds buffaloes, gnus, zebras and gazelles. This large number of grazers also explains why in the crater the largest density of predators in Africa can be found. Beside other predators more than 100 lions live here in several prides.

The chances of watching the "Big Five" lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard within just a few hours are here particularly good. In the afternoon, it goes up again the steep crater walls and then back to Arusha Town.
