Tour Plan

Distance: About 120 km

Non – game viewing time: 2 to 3 hrs.

After breakfast at your lodge, meet your safari driver guide & chef then start the tour. The first stop will be in Arusha town for any last-minute purchases before heading to Tarangire National Park for a game drive. Packed lunch will be served in one of the picnic sites inside the park. Tarangire is famous for its huge elephant population and giant baobab trees, you may expect to spot herds of elephant, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, hippos, baboons, and many antelopes. Birds are abundant & you may spot the three rare species of Ash staling, Great Kudu & Fringe Eared Oryx. Predators like lion, leopard, cheetah, jackals & hyena can also be seen. The park forms the central annual migratory cycle within the Tarangire Lake Manyara ecosystem that includes up to 3000 elephants, 25,000 wildebeest, and about 30,000 zebra. Late Afternoon you will drive towards the base of the Great Rift Valley overnight.

Your 5 days Serengeti Ngorongoro, Tarangire & Lake Natron tour continues after breakfast, you will drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area & descend 600 meters into the crater floor for a game drive. Ngorongoro Crater is a rich area with enough water & fodder to support a variety of animal species which includes herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippos, and giant African elephants. The Crater is home to some rare species of black rhino living in their natural habitat perhaps this is among few areas where you can see black rhino in the natural wilderness.

Another interesting part of this picturesque Caldera is its denser population of predators, which include lions, cheetahs, hyenas, Jackals, and the ever-mysterious leopard that sometimes needs a binocular eye to spot. You will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline Lake in the southwestern corner frequently visited hippos, flocks of flamingos, and other water birds. Late afternoon drive to Simba Public Campsite for sunset watching, dinner & overnight.

After breakfast drive around the Crater rim and down to “The wild Africa” Serengeti National Park with its endless rolling plains. Then move to the central Park area called Seronera, named after the River which is a valuable source of water in the Park, therefore, attracts a larger number of animal species in Serengeti Masai Mara ecosystem.

Seronera is among the richest habitats in Serengeti where you can see animal actions like fighting, hunting, eating even killing. Packed lunch to be served at kopjes (rocky outcropping) or on the way. After lunch & some rest embark for sunset game drive in the vast  Serengeti plains in searching for the migration of herds (depending on travel dates).

Today at 06:30 the 5 Days Serengeti Ngorongoro safari takes you for an early morning game drive which can allow you to spot some cat family on the road as they avoiding morning mist. You may also see other nocturnal predators coming back from their long night of hunting or a group of lioness organizing a morning ambush. If the Wildebeest Migration will be packed in Serengeti then you will go straight to where they are & spend much time with them before starting your en-route game drive towards the Northern Serengeti.

Check out at Klein’s gate & drive to Lake Natron where you will arrive in the late afternoon and go for a sunset walk along the Lakeshore if time permits. You will have early dinner and sleep a bit before your driver wakes you up to be ready for your night summit attempt at Ol Doinyo Lengai Mountain.

      It is a great place to shop not too far from New York. We took the bus from Port Authority and traveled through the countryside to get there.
