Day 2. Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park
Depart from the lodge in the morning and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. The park encompasses the northwest bank and part of the alkaline Lake Manyara which itself rests in the Great Rift Valley. The park is perhaps best known for its flamingos, pelicans, and cormorants but it is also the home for a few hundred other species of birds; it is, therefore, a paradise for ornithologists. Next to a great variety of birds, the ‘‘Big Game’’ can also be seen. With a bit of luck, you might see elephants in the wooded regions and with even fortune the tree-climbing lions. Indeed, it was thought for a long time that the Lake Manyara Np is the only place where lions can be found with this typical behavior of climbing trees. Baboons and vervet monkeys are also found amongst the forested areas and in the more open spaces, giraffes nibble at the fresh leaves while the various types of antelopes common to the region browse for tasty shoots. Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Serena Lodge.
Day 3. Lake Manyara National park – Serengeti National park
In the morning, we will depart from the Lodge and head towards Serengeti National Park across the Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority (Loduare Gate). The stretch of road towards the park’s gates offers a fantastic opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat, often during migration including wildebeests, zebras, impalas, and lions. We will have a picnic lunch at the gate of the Serengeti National Park (Naabi Gate) where you can also follow a trail to the top of the hill which boasts stunning views over the famous Serengeti. With the game drive en-route, we will head for dinner and overnight at Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge.
Day 4. Serengeti – Ngorongoro
We will commence our journey in the morning where we can capture an abundance of animals as the sunrises over the Serengeti plains.
We will enjoy the game drive at Serengeti National Park in the rolling grasslands, dotted with wildlife, zebras, impalas, and hippos in their pools. In the late afternoon, we will head towards Ngorongoro and visit the Maasai Boma on our way, dinner, and overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge.
