Afterwards, we visit the most famous wildlife sanctuary in the world – Serengeti National Park. The word ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’, which describes the park’s 5,600 square mile boundary. Yet for its sprawling area, the Serengeti does not disappoint when it comes to rich game- viewing. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. Overnight at Seronera campsite.(In the central of the park)
DAY 04: Safari in Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation area
We embark on an encore game drive in the expansive Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti boasts one of the most varied collections of wildlife on the planet. Annually, from May to December, millions of animals embark on a migration which brings them from central Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara and back again in an incredible spectacle. Even during the ‘down-time’, vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle roam here, along with groups of elephant, giraffe, and buffalo, as the lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas and jackals stalk their meals.
We depart from the Serengeti to visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5′ – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. This truly world-class attraction is also known as the ’8th Wonder of the World’. Before your permit expires it is time to drive out of The Conservation Area and drive to Simba campsite for dinner and overnight at Simba campsite.
DAY 05: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha
Breakfast is at day break before you drive into the crater. The Ngorongoro crater is the largest unbroken and unflooded caldera in the world and will fascinate you with unbelieveable wildlife diversity. On the grass step and in the acacia tree woods you will find almost all species found on the east african savanna; with the exception of Topi, Masai Giraffe and Impala.
