After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive in Lake Manyara National Park, home to hippos, elephants, flamingos, plains game, and the famous tree-climbing lions that reside here. The landscape is a mixture of dense forest, small open plains, and lush waterside grasses, a feast for herbivores such as buffalo. All meals are included.
Lake Manyara to Serengeti
The morning begins with the long scenic drive north to the world renowned Serengeti National Park, arriving at the lovely Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp in the central Serengeti in time for lunch. This well-located mobile camp in the central Serengeti has just 10 comfortable tents with en-suite facilities and offers an authentic safari experience.
In the afternoon, board your safari vehicle for a game drive exploring the open plains in the search of abundant wildlife. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight. All meals are included.
Morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti will await today, seeking out the big cats, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, and many others that inhabit the vast open plains of this huge park which borders the Maasai Mara in its northeast corner. The sheer scale and seemingly endless horizon in this part of Africa is simply spellbinding. There is also the opportunity to take an optional balloon safari over the plains. All meals are included.
Serengeti to Ngorongoro
After breakfast, you will depart for Ngorongoro, viewing game across the vast Serengeti plains, with the option to visit the archaeological marvel of Olduvai Gorge, the discovery site of some of the earliest ever humanoid remains.

Its collapsed volcanic crater is 12 miles in diameter and 2,000 feet deep.
The fertile soil and lake attract a huge range of wildlife, and your afternoon crater game viewing will seek to uncover them amongst the floor’s forests, grasses, and plains. Dinner and overnight are spent at the Oldeani Mountain Lodge, located on a hillside above the quiet town of Karatu, with beautiful rooms and far reaching views. All meals are included.
Ngorongoro to Tarangire
