The park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large colonies of flamingos and many more waterfowl. The park is also home to giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons.

DAY 03

karatu - ngorongoro crater - serengeti national park

  • Rise and shine! After breakfast, you will drive to the crater rim from where you will take on the steep and adventurous trail into the crater.

  • Here, within a few square kilometres, you can find all the animals that live in the East African savannah. You will see a diversity of wildlife ranging from the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to wildebeests, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks in the forests on the slopes. The crater is also one of the best places to see the magnificent but almost extinct black rhino. You will spend the morning on a game drive followed by a picnic lunch.

  • During the early afternoon, you will leave the crater and travel to the Serengeti. The Serengeti National Park is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is here where the biggest animal migration in the world takes place. Herds of wildebeests and zebras cross the border between Tanzania and Kenya in search of fresh grass and water and predators are never far behind.

  • Stay tonight at the Kati Kati Tented Camp in the central Serengeti.

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

DAY 05

serengeti national park - lake victoria

  • After an early start, you will continue through the Serengeti National Park on your way out. There will be more time to spot animals you may not have seen already, perhaps the rare African wild dog? The Serengeti is also home to the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – and today you might be able to tick off all the members of this group.

  • After leaving the park, the journey continues to Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and the second-largest in the world. The area around Lake Victoria is the most fertile and densely inhabited region of Tanzania. Here at the ocean-like lake, you will see another side of Tanzania – away from the masses you will experience how the local people live. You can watch fishermen and visit a local school – an experience unavailable on the usual tourist routes.

Accommodation: Speke bay lodge

Meals planned: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

DAY 06

lake victoria - masai mara area

  • After breakfast, you will join the local fishermen and a guide on a canoe trip on Lake Victoria.

  • See how the locals catch fish the traditional way and admire the previous night’s catch.

  • Back on dry land, you will depart on the longest journey of your safari – the trip to the Masai Mara. The road towards the Kenyan border is a long and adventurous one, but it should be worth it as the “Mara” is reputed to have the highest lion population of all reserves in Africa. Other large cats also live here and can be spotted all year round, as their sightings are not dependent upon the seasons or the great migration.

Accommodation: Mara West Camp

Meals planned: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

DAY 07

masai mara game reserve

  • Enjoy this day dedicated to game viewing in the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Thousands of animals must cross it, risking death as crocodiles wait below the surface of the swirling water. It can be a gruesome sight. At other times of the year, hippos, hungry crocodiles and other animals can also be seen at the river.

Accommodation: Ashnil Mara Camp

Meals planned: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
