Program

Day 1: Arrival

Meru slopes and safaris guide will pick you up at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and take you to their office in Arusha. As local Tanzanians, their guides know well the country and Arusha city, so you’ll be in good hands from when you arrive at the moment you leave.

Day 2: Arusha to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Pick up from Arusha and transfer to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch, you will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for an afternoon safari tour.

Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park 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 national park is its 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 visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the south western corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

  • Non game-viewing travel time: Four hours
  • Distance: 190 kilometers

Day 3: Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Lake Ndutu

After breakfast, you 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.

You will arrive in time for lunch at the lodge or camp, and after lunch you 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. Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

  • Non game-viewing travel time: Two hours
  • Distance: 90 kilometers

Day 4: Full day at Ndutu area

After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in the Ndutu area. Explore the range of different habitats that include swamps, woodland, soda lakes, and the world famous Serengeti short grass plains. See great herds of wildebeest and zebra.

During a short time frame around February, normally lasting for about three weeks, the majority of the wildebeest calve. The sea of grass provides little cover and the young are easy pickings for a variety of predators. Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born and within three days they are normally strong enough to keep up with the herd. Lunch, dinner, and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 5 : Ndutu area to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will head towards the central Serengeti National Park, also known as the Seronera. You will 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.

You will head to 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. You will arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.

Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

  • Non game-viewing travel time: Two hours
  • Distance: 80 kilometers

Day 6: Full day at Serengeti National Park

Be one of only a few fortunate people to glide in a hot air balloon over the Serengeti Plains (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). Floating silently above the awakening bush, while spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and over numerous small villages.

After breakfast, enjoy a full day game drive in the Serengeti National Park. The majority of the wildebeest migration normally passes through the Seronera in late November to middle November, when they migrate from Kenya's Masai Mara in north to the Ndutu area in the south. The migration then passes through this area again in April when they move west to the Western Corridor of the Serengeti National Park.

The Seronera area is also an ideal starting to point to visit the eastern and southern short-grass plains of the Serengeti National Park. Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 7: Serengeti National Park to Arusha

After breakfast at the lodge, you will depart to the Seronera airstrip and enjoy a game drive en-route to the airstrip. The group should tip the guide around 20 to 30 USD a day.

Around mid-morning, join a scheduled flight from Seronera airstrip to Arusha airport. Upon arrival to Arusha airport, meet your driver and transfer to Arusha town. On arrival in Arusha, you will have lunch and then end this African safari adventure. You will be taken to your hotel, which ends Meru Slopes Tours and Safaris' safari services.
