Day 3: Serengeti National Park- Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

After breakfast you will depart early in the morning heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Today, you will visit the Ngorongoro crater, the main feature is a large, unbroken, unfolded volcanic caldera. You will enjoy a last minute game drive through this expansive park as you drive towards the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, is 610m (2,000 ft.) deep and its floor covers 260 km² (100 sq. mi). The crater floor is mostly open grassland with two small wooded areas dominated by Acacia xanthophloea. Game drives through the Ngorongoro Crater begin early in the morning in closed safari vehicles with pop – up roofs. Accompanied by an expert driver guide, a magnificent experience is sure to be had! The descent into the crater is one of scenic beauty, as you make your way through lush forests, home to numerous

elephants and buffalo. As you reach the inside of the Ngorongoro Crater, marvelling at the incredible landscape around you, your guide will take you through the grassy crater floor, the unbelievable fever tree forest, the banks of Lake Magadi and the surrounding marshes. Lunch is served picnic style, surrounded by the natural wonders around you as well as the exceptional wildlife, roaming freely, with which you share this extraordinary paradise.

Day 4: Lake Manyara - Arusha City

Today, we will explore the beautiful and diverse Lake Manyara National Park. Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk

cacophonously in the high canopy. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a firsttime visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day.

An activities for 65$ extra would be to walk on the tree top through a rope bridge. Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large waterbirds such as pelicans, cormorants and storks. You will stop for a picnic lunch at one of the picnic sites in the park where you will enjoy the fresh air of the African nature as you savour your meal. After lunch you will begin your drive out of the park and you will be driven back to Arusha stopping for souvenir shopping along the way arriving at your hotel for dinner & overnight.
