4 Day Safari: Serengeti and Ngorongoro
DAY 1: Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater
We depart from your lodge in Arusha and visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5? – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this truly world-class attraction, also known as the ’8th Wonder of the World’. We stay overnight at Rhino Lodge.
DAY 2: Ngorongoro – Serengeti
We embark on our game drive in the expansive Serengeti National Park. The word ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’, which describes the park’s 5,600 square mile boundary. Yet for its sprawling area, the Serengeti does not disappoint when it comes to rich game-viewing. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The Serengeti boasts one of the most varied collection of wildlife on the planet. Annually, from May to December, millions of animals embark on a migration which brings them from central Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara and back again in an incredible spectacle. Even during the ‘down-time’, vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle roam here, along with groups of elephant, giraffe, and buffalo, as the lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas and jackals stalk their meals. We make our way to our lodging at Seronera Wildlife Lodge for the night.
DAY 3: Serengeti National Park
We continue our game drive in the Serengeti and overnight at Ndutu Lodge in the southern Serengeti.
DAY 4: Serengeti – Departure
After breakfast, we begin our long drive back to Arusha. With prior arrangement, we can drop you off at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) after the safari. You can make any flight after 8:00pm or arrange to stay an extra night at a hotel.
