Serengeti is fantastic especially in the morning time when predators coming back from hunts. Do you know how animals behave in the morning? If you are lucky, today, you’ll witness hippopotamus returning into the water after whole night striving for food, leopard hanging a Thomson’s gazelle prey up to the tree, cheetahs chasing troops of impala on target for food, elephants massaging their body on the tree, and more.

When in season, witness the part of wildebeest migration and bird life. After lunch, you’ll depart with en-route game drive in the endless plains dotted with rocky hills and the home of predators with your open roof Land Cruiser with your camera at hand.

Ngorongoro Crater is an oasis for wildlife habitation. In Ngorongoro, you’ll see the volcanic caldera which is the world's largest, full of grassland, forest and swamp, a setting of jaw-dropping beauty.

The permanent water of the crater floor supports a resident population of more than 24,900 large mammals including elephants, lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals, wallowing hippos, waterbucks, baboons, and even the rare black rhinos. Sharing this empathetic spaces with the wildlife are the Maasai people, grazing their cattle in an area which has been a separate conservation area.

This harmonious cohabitation of man and beast makes Ngorongoro unique in Tanzania and your driver guide will be pleased to explain this incredible co-existence to you.
