4 Day Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park lodge Safari

4 Day Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park lodge Safari is very best If you want to see the Great Migration of wildebeests but you have limited time. The migration takes place in Tanzania from October to the end of July, moving around the territory of the Serengeti in a clockwise direction and going off to Kenya for two months. But since most of the time wildebeests are still in Tanzania, we boldly recommend you to see this unique phenomenon. Besides, the tour begins with wonderful Ngorongoro Сrater, which is on the way to the Serengeti and serves as a gate toward the vast valley. Here is a world in which predators and herbivores coexist.

Day 0: Arrival Day:

You’ll be met by our ground handling team at Kilimanjaro International Airport or Namanga Border and transferred to the delightful accommodation in Arusha town

Day 1: Arusha - Serengeti National Park

In the morning, we will pick you from your hotel in Arusha and take you to the Arusha National ParkYou will have a halfday game drive to Central Serengeti National Park, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti and at Afternoon you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. This park is the largest in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes – short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water. You will have evening game drive then  spend the night at the choice of accommodation inside of the park.

Dinner and overnight as the accommodation we suggested for you.

Day 2: Full Day at Serengeti National Park

The entire full day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best. You will spend another night at last night’s accommodation.

Dinner and overnight as the accommodation we suggested for you.

Day 3: Serengeti National park – Ngorongoro Highlands

After breakfast, continue to the Serengeti National Park game drive. A brief visit en route to Olduvai Gorge which is often referred to as ‘The Cradle of Mankind’ and is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world. Lunch at your accommodation. During Afternoon you will have nature hike around Ngorongoro Crater rim and highlands.

Options: You have option of doing Serengeti Balloon, doing balloon you will fly over Serengeti and get opportunity to view Serengeti from the air and see all animals from their hidden place where vehicle could not reach.

Dinner and overnight as the  accommodation we suggested for you on the Crater rim.

Day 2: A Day at Ngorongoro Crater – Drive Back Arusha

After breakfast, we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a day’s safari tour. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here.After an extensive game drive you will travel back to Arusha. where we will drive you to your lodge or Kilimanjaro International Airport.
