      Itinerary

      Our driver will pick you up from your Hotel in Arusha, with picnic lunch en route to a full day Ngorongoro Crater tour. You will be taken 2000ft down the crater by a 4wheel drive vehicle, explore the crater before ascending and drive to your Lodge set on a crater rim. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main drawcard for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction.

      The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is home of Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed some 2.5 million years ago from a volcanic mountain sinking due to inactivity, and was initially thought to be higher than Tanzania’s famous Kilimanjaro. The crater has evolved into a unique and integral part of Tanzania’s eco-system. The crater is actually a caldera, measures 22.5 km’s across and the rim walls stand 600m high. Views from within and from the rim are breathtaking. The crater houses 30,000 animals and a large variety of birds, which rarely move from the area due to the availability of water through wet and dry seasons. In the evening, back to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

      Pick up from your hotel after breakfast and then transfer to Arusha airstrip for your flight to Serengeti North. Upon arrival, meet your driver guide for a full day game drive in this part of the park to view the great migration.

      The park is well known for its healthy stock of other resident wildlife, particularly the "big five", named for the five most prized trophies taken by hunters: Lion: the Serengeti is believed to hold the largest population of lions in Africa due in part to the abundance of prey species. More than 3,000 lions live in this ecosystem. African Leopard: these reclusive predators are commonly seen in the Seronera region but are present throughout the national park with the population at around 1,000. African Elephant.

      Meal: B,L,D
      Accommodation: Serengeti Acacia Camps

      After breakfast at the Camp, depart with your picnic lunch for a game drive and to view the great migration.

      Serengeti national Park -- Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lion up to 30 strong, however from August to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later. Please take note - to actually find a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck.

      Meal: B,L,D
      Accommodation: Serengeti Acacia Camps

      After breakfast, enjoy a full day of game dive at the Mara River viewing the great migration river crossing. In the evening, back to the camp for the evening bonfire, dinner and overnight.

      River crossings at Kogatende start to occur every day in August as the mega herd settles into the area. From August to October, game viewing up here is superb with river crossings pretty much guaranteed every day. There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross back and forth over the river, following the rains and subsequent fresh grasses. It is not uncommon to see different herds crossing in different directions on the same day.

      Meal: B,L,D
      Accommodation: Serengeti Acacia Camps

      Depart after breakfast for a morning game drive. In the afternoon, transfer to Kogatende Airstrip or your flight to Arusha. Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to Kilimanjaro airport for your home flight.

      How many days do you need for Serengeti safari?

      four days
      Serengeti is a huge national park so we would recommend minimum four days in order to properly explore it and find the wildlife. Being so large, you do need to spend time driving around looking for the Big Five, which takes time. Plus in four days you’ll experience different weather and a variety of safari experiences.

        How much is a 5 day safari in Tanzania?

        Expect a starting price of US$950 per person for a 5-day budget tour, while luxury tours start at about US$2,500. Before booking a tour, it makes sense to get a few quotes.

          What is the best time to see the Great Migration?

          July through November is traditionally considered the best time to view the Great Migration. Between July and August, the wildebeest move en masse into Kenya’s Maasai Mara, crossing the Mara River in staggering numbers

            Is safari cheaper in Kenya or Tanzania?

            In general, your Tanzania safari will be more expensive than your Kenya safari when comparing a Kenya Safari vs a Tanzania Safari. So Kenya is the better-known safari destination, but consequently, most of its prime national parks and game reserves are considerably busier than across the border in Tanzania.

              What is the closest city to Serengeti National Park?

              Arusha
              What city is closest to Serengeti? The nearest city, and the city most safari tours begin from, is Arusha. Arusha, a city with a population of just over 400,000, is home to some of the greatest marvels of Tanzania.

                What makes Serengeti so special?

                Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is famous for being the location of the Great Wildlife Migration, which involves two MILLION wildebeests, zebras and antelopes. It’s also an extremely large and wild game park, and home to the Big Five of Africa.

                  What is the big five in Serengeti?

                  The Big Five in the Serengeti. The Big Five define that ultimate African safari experience: seeing these impressive animals – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant and Cape buffalo – roaming freely in their own habitat is something you will never forget.
