To provide you with the most convenient and hassle-free travel experience, My Serengeti Safari has taken their years of experience and designed what are considered to be the best of the best safaris. They take into account the time of year, the migration of the animals, and the weather patterns. By traveling on this safari, you can relax in knowing everything has been taken care of.
Budget camping is the ideal way for those who like to rough it as My Serengeti Safari will provide mostly bivouac pop-up tents for accommodation whereby mattresses are laid on the sewn-in ground sheet. The tents are spacious enough for two people and they have a mesh on each window to keep off insects. The guests’ safari vehicle pulls a trailer carrying the camping equipment and a cook.
All preparations at the camp are made on arrival at the campsite. Guests are often expected to help pitch the tents, but the cooking and cleaning is all left to the camping crew. My Serengeti Safari recommends visitors to bring their own sleeping bags. Public campsites provide basic washroom facilities of reasonable hygienic standard for budget camping safaris.
If you've not done it before, then sleeping out in the bush in Africa might seem a little scary, but there's always an armed game scout nearby to reassure you.
You will leave Arusha and head through a scenic drive to Lake Manyara National Park, a unique and picturesque park with a stunning lake, inspiring views, and very varied wildlife and birdlife viewing. Manyara is a shallow alkaline lake that is part of the Rift Valley wall, the lake is at the base of this dramatic western escarpment, giving it a beautiful and serene setting.
In addition to this peaceful setting, Lake Manyara’s main attractions are its rich bird life, tree climbing lions, and its hippos which you can see at a closer range than any other places.
You will leave Lake Manyara for a drive to the Serengeti where breathtaking landscapes, endless plains, and abundant wildlife await you. The Serengeti is a UNESCO world heritage site that is sure to capture your imagination. The center part of the Serengeti is the ideal location for marveling at the annual migration of large herds of animals at this time of the year. Often spotted in the Serengeti are elephants, hippos, lions, zebras, wildebeests, cheetahs, leopards, and more.
The Seronera area of the Serengeti has a high concentration of lions. It also offers some of the most picturesque and scenic landscapes in the Serengeti. Endless plains are sprinkled with large scattered outcrops of granite rock formations that are often favored by lions as the perfect hideouts for a lazy afternoon sleep.
You will continue to explore the vast plains of the Serengeti and you will look for prides of lions and large herds of wildebeests pounding the plains, while hungry predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs try to prey upon the youngest and weakest members of the herds.
Today, you will leave the Serengeti and drive to Ngorongoro Crater, passing some very scenic landscapes. En route to the Ngorongoro Crater, you will stop by Olduvai Gorge, a world-renowned archaeological site that has been called the cradle of mankind.
Today, you will enjoy a full day of game viewing at the Ngorongoro Crater. Called the eighth wonder of the world, the crater won’t fail to take your breath away as you stand on the rim looking down a ten-mile wide crater floor with abundant wildlife. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world, covering approximately 260 square kilometers with walls rising 600 meters from the crater floor.
Before the Ngorongoro volcano exploded and collapsed two million years ago, it was one of the world's tallest mountains. Now, it is home to more than 30,000 large mammals, mainly gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest, and warthog and has the highest predator density in the world.
After breakfast, you will leave for Arusha via Mto Wa Mbu Maasai Market where you will stop for some shopping.
