After breakfast, depart for Lake Manyara National Park with an en-route game drive and picnic lunch served in the park. Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is one of the most beautiful places in Africa. The park is dramatically marked off by lush green vegetation consisting of tall trees of the ground water forest, which provide home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. Further down, the forest opens up into woodland, grassland, swamps and beyond. The soda lake itself has over 350 species of birds, including the lively flamingo, pelican, sacred ibis, grebe, and stork. At the southern end of the park are hot sulfur springs called MajiMoto. Manyara is noted for its numerous buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala, hippo, as well as a great variety of smaller animals, and of course the very elusive tree-climbing lions. In the afternoon, you will proceed towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Dinner and overnight is at Endoro Lodge (full board).

Ngorongoro is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and surrounded by very steep walls rising 610m from the floor. Covering an area of 259 sq. kms, it is considered to be one of the Wonders of the Natural World. In the afternoon, you will proceed towards Serengeti National Park, probably the greatest park on earth. This park, undoubtedly the most famous in the world, covers over 14,000 sq. km and offers among many other things the biggest concentration of big cats in the world: cheetahs, lions, leopards, wild cats, birds, and impala.

Main destination: Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Serengeti Tortilis Camp

Meals & drinks: All meals included Drinks not included

The camp is located in the great plains of the Serengeti, in the middle of the savanna. Near the camp snakes the river Seronera which drinks all the year the animals living in this area of the park. Predators are numerous to watch for their preys that come to drink there. The solitary leopards perch on the acacias along the river, the lions prefer the rocks to rest in the shade. Serengeti is one of the largest in Tanzania (14763 km²). The name Serengeti is derived from the name Masai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. It is in this part that the great migration, unique phenomenon in the world, spends part of the year, in search of freshly grown grass, rich in calcium. The migration of some 2 million animals is observable from December to mid-June, and in February the calving takes place. It is in Serengeti that you can observe the largest number of herbivores and predators. Nearly 500 species of birds have been recorded, some of them migratory, from Europe and Asia October to April.
