After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous National park in the World, the Serengeti. The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes. As for Big Cats and large predators, it’s the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings having been filmed in this park. After the game drive, you will return back to 5 star Lodge .
Start an early Morning game drive in the Serengeti National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. On every day of the safari, your guide will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the wake up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the Camp/Lodge for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive, or you could go for a game drive with picnic lunch. After the game drive, you will return back to 5 star Lodge .
Today you will wake up very early to do an early morning game drive after breakfast, to spot the animals when they are more active and also to have a fantastic sun rise in front of you. The sunrise in the African Savanna is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have. You will then travel to Ngorongoro Crater, inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare black rhino. In fact, the crater has the greatest concentration of wild life in the planet. It contains a river, several swamps, and a soda lake that from the top looks like steam, full of flamingos, a forest and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusks, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. After Your game drive in the crater, we expect to be back in Arusha around 6:00 pm although we can be flexible if needed (i.e. flight to catch). Likewise you will be transferred to curio shops where you can grab some souvenirs to take back home with you. After your game drive, you will drive to 5 star Lodge for an overnight.

It’s possible that you will catch a glimpse of a lion stalking its prey or leopards watching and relaxing in the trees above.
