Day 2 - Serengeti National Park

Breakfast at the hotel. Thereafter, check out and drive to the Serengeti National Park. To reach the Serengeti you must travel through the Ngoro Ngoro Conservation Area, skirting the Ngoro Ngoro Crater before entering the Serengeti. Enjoy a game drive on your way to your accommodation. Along the way, you have the option of visiting Olduvai Gorge, a site famous for the discovery of human ancestor remains that provide the most continuous known record of human evolution during the past 2 million years.

The wide, open plains of the Serengeti – green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry season, and home to thousands of hoofed animals and fierce predators – are perhaps the quintessential image of Africa. Flat and rolling with long grasses and dotted with acacia trees, the plains get their name from the Maasai word Siringitu – ‘the place where the land moves on forever’.

Included Activities: Game drive

Included Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 3 - Serengeti National Park

Start around sunrise for a morning game drive and follow that up later on with an afternoon game drive, as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day. You will usually return to camp during the hotter hours in the middle of the day, where you will enjoy a hearty meal, relax and maybe take a siesta. The seemingly endless Serengeti Plains capture the essence of Africa. They are home to massive numbers of grazing animals and various predators, and the interaction between the many species often provides some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in the world. Depending on wildlife movements and opportunities for sightings, the drive may continue through lunch and last all day. In this case, you will return to the camp in the late afternoon.

Included Activities: Two 4×4 Game drives

Included Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Ngoro Ngoro Crater is the remnants of an ancient volcano caldera, and within its 300 square kilometers is a remarkable concentration of wildlife.Thereafter, drive to Karatu. Your destination today is the rim of the crater (approximately 3 hours).
