    • Masai Mara Game Reserve is Kenya’s finest wildlife sanctuary. Including migrants, well over 450 species of animals have been recorded here.

    • Arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch, head into the Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive. This national park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park), located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.

    Accommodation: Lake Manyara Twiga Campsite

    Meals & drinks: Meals & drinks: All meals included Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

  • Day 7: Lake Manyara to Serengeti expand_more
    • After breakfast, head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.

    • Arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.

    Accommodation: Seronera Campsite

    Meals & drinks: Meals & drinks: All meals included Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

  • Day 9: Serengeti to Ngorongoro expand_more
    • After breakfast at the lodge, depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Stopover at Olduvai Gorge, boasting a history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.

    • Arrive in time for lunch at the camp and after lunch, spend the afternoon hunting for the game.

    • Spot herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot.

    • Visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here.
