Day 1 - Arrival in Tanzania and transfer to Arusha city.
Depart the hotel soon after breakfast and drive via the scenic floor of the Great Rift Valley to Maasai Mara. Lunch then proceed for an evening game drive.
Day 3 Full Day Masai Mara
Spend the day on game drives exploring the Masai Mara. The open grasslands are home to incredibly rich and varied wildlife and the awesome, annual migration of millions of wildebeest and antelope is the highlight of any visitor to Africa from July to September. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is arguably Kenya’s most popular game sanctuary. It is the most famous and most visited game reserve in Kenya. The film ‘Out of Africa’ was made to a great extent in this reserve.
Virtually every type of wildlife can be seen in the Mara due to the migration across the Kenya/Tanzania border which is a spectacle worth seeing as millions of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle from Serengeti plains cross the Tanzania border at the Mara River to into Maasai Mara grazing fields from late June. The dramatic crossing of the river and the predators who prey on the herds can be viewed from early July to
The reserve abounds with birdlife since close to about 452 species have been recorded.
We leave the camp and drive through the southern part of the reserve viewing game as we proceed to
Tanzania boarder at Isebania/Sirari. Your driver from Tanzania will be waiting and you will drive south for the
night in a quiet area on the shores of the immerse Lake Victoria. The surrounding countryside is home to many different tribes including the Kuria, Jita, Luo, and Taturu.
You will enjoy your overnight stay ready for the next adventure tomorrow.
The legendary Serengeti Plain is your destination for the next two days, a vast rolling plain whose sparse vegetation allows for some of the best wildlife viewing in the world. The annual migration of wildebeest and zebra is one of the park’s great attractions, but throughout the year the Serengeti is excellent for seeing predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah, along with elephant, giraffe, hyena, hippo, rhino, and many varieties of antelopes and birds. You will enjoy a picnic lunch as you drive to central of Serengeti. The evening is free to rest.
Today you will leave after breakfast and with lunch packet you will drive as you follow the migrations paths depending with the location. We will spend the day following the great migration of about 1.5 millions Wildebeests and 500,000 Zebras migrating through the Serengeti Ecosystem. Dangers is everywhere and packs of lion, cheetah and other carnivores are everywhere waiting for the right moment to strike. Crocodiles in Serengeti river does no mercy as the herds cross the river. Thousands are swept by the arrogant waters and the scenes are amazing. Later in the early evening you will drive to your camp for overnight rest.
Day 7: Tracing the Big five in Serengeti
Today we enjoy morning and afternoon game viewing drives on the vast Serengeti plains. In the early morning and evening light, the Serengeti landscape is stunningly beautiful. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than three million large mammals. The park is one that can never disappoint. One is spoilt by the variety of bird and wildlife species in this game reserve.
Depending with wildlife movement at different times, we may serve picnic lunch at a picnic site or take hot lunch from our lodge/camp.
You will enjoy yet another morning game drive in Serengeti. Drive back to the camp for breakfast and check out before starting your journey to Ngorongoro. We arrive at our crater rim lodge to a warm welcome, check in and then lunch. This afternoon just relax and enjoy the breathtaking and spectacular views of the Ngorongoro scenery, the largest unbroken caldera in the world. Dinner and overnight at your game lodge.
Note: a warm jacket or cardigan is highly recommended.
This morning we drive and descend some 610 meters into the crater, which is home to an abundance of wildlife and a photogenic paradise, for a full day of game viewing drive with picnic lunch at a private scenic site (hippos pool). Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact caldera in the world teams with an abundance of wildlife permanently resident on the crater floor. Prides of lions, herds of Cape buffalo, impala, Thompson gazelles, rhino, golden and black backed jackal, zebra, cheetah, leopard and the spotted hyena freely roam on the crater floor plains. Unmatched for its natural variety and breath taking beauty, there are few places on earth where such a tremendous diversity of landscapes exist inside a region this size. Apart from its wildlife riches, the crater is also home to hundreds of bird species, refreshing in the small lakes in the crater floor.
In the evening we drive to our game lodge just minutes drive from the park for overnight stay.
You leave the Ngorongoro for Nairobi. Here you can explore the city, go shopping for souvenirs or just relax. You will proceed to Arusha for your scheduled shuttle back to Nairobi.
