You will be picked up from your hotel in Arusha by your driver guide and depart to Lake Manyara. Arrive at lunch time, game drive in Lake Manyara National Park, and overnight at Twiga Campsite.

Lake Manyara is rightly famous for its tree-climbing lions, but they're far from the only highlight; by the end of an exhilarating afternoon, you could easily have spotted elephant, hippo, wildebeest, buffalo and giraffe, plus many other species. Pink-hued flamingos, one of 400 bird species recorded here, provide a splash of color.

It's almost impossible to spend too much time in Serengeti and with more than 1.5 million herbivores with thousands of predators, there's always something new and interesting to see. The changing seasons and natural light simply add to the diversity. This morning, your driver-guide will help you spot some more of the many species at Serengeti, teaching you about their fascinating habits and habitats.

After a pleasant picnic lunch, it's time to drive eastwards to visit another spectacular setting for Tanzania's wildlife, the famous Ngorongoro Crater. On arrival, settle in at the campsite while a tasty, hot dinner is prepared for you. Tomorrow, the wonders of the crater await you.

After breakfast, descend to the Ngorongoro Crater floor for a game drive, followed by an afternoon ascend to the crater rim for Arusha.

The volcanic caldera (the world's largest) is full of grassland, a forest, and swamp, a setting of jaw-dropping beauty. Secondly, the permanent water of the crater floor supports a resident population of more than 25,000 large mammals. There, you'll find many of the reasons you chose to come on safari: elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, jackal, wallowing hippo, waterbuck, baboons, and even the rare black rhino finds shelter here.

Sharing this awesome space with the animals are the Maasai, grazing their cattle in an area which has been a separate conservation area since 1956 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978. 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.

After your morning game drive, you will have a picnic lunch in the crater before you return to Arusha.
