Perhaps it is innately synchronized wilderness, with the eccentricity of a refined cultural heritage, that makes the dichotomous landscape of Tanzania, truly one-of-a-kind. One word. Wildlife. The Tanzanian ecosystem is dominated by the world’s most exotic animals. Be it the zebras and giraffe, or the deer and the buffalo herds, or the feline lions and tigers, Tanzania is teeming with fauna. Its Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, boast the most expansive lands and the largest wildebeest migration. Also, these areas are ideal for birding as the country is home to birdlife of over 1400 species! These birding spots are counted among as the best tourist places in Tanzania.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park.

Today after breakfast, drive towards the most famous Serengeti National Park. The drive  itself is spectacular. drive up the crater highlands, making a quick stop at the rim for an majestic view of Ngorongoro Crater. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. 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 including the abundant impalas and Thomson’s gazelles. 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. Smaller animals like foxes, mongoose, honey badgers, jackals, monkeys, baboons, rock hyrax and african hares, together with more than 500 species of birds, also inhabit this park.

On the way to the park you will have the option to stop for a visit to Olduvai Gorge, a famous place where Dr. Louis and Mary Leakey discovered the remains of the first man who walked on Earth. This tour includes a short lecture describing the archeological digs and geologic characteristics of the gorge, as well as a visit to their museum.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park.

Post breakfast, the day can be fully utilised for Serengeti National Park. Enjoying the wildlife.

Return back to and stay overnight in Serengeti.

Day 4: Serengeti – Ngorongoro

On this day we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning  drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. This is due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World. You will reach Ngorongoro in time for a sundowner.

Day 5: Ngorongoro – Kilimanjaro

We will start the day very early checking out from the hotel and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo Lake. After lunch, we exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area and drive towards Kilimanjaro. We expect to be back in Kilimanjaro late night and board the flight for onward journey to Mumbai.
