Itinerary

Day 1
Starts with pickup from wherever you are staying in Arusha or Moshi area. You will drive about 2-3 hours to Lake Manyara National Park at the edge of the great Rift Valley. Enjoy your first game drive in this small but very scenic and interesting park with forests, lake, and plains - and a variety of wildlife. Overnight at a campsite around Mto wa Mbu or Karatu villages near Lake Manyara National Park (slight price increase for campsites inside park borders). All meals included starting with lunch today.  Note:  Tarangire National Park can be substitute for Lake Manyara instead.

Day 2
Drive through the Ngorongoro Highlands (saving the Crater itself for later) and down onto the Serengeti plains. It is quite scenic as you ascend into the Ngorongoro Highlands which has colorful Maasai villages as well as wildlife. Then, descend onto the Serengeti Plains where you will see animals en route to the campground. If desired (entrance fee is extra), stop at the Olduvai Gorge Museum to learn a bit about our early human ancestors and fossils found in this area. Overnight at a public campsite in the Serengeti National park.  

Day 3
You will spend today exploring the Serengeti ecosystem which flows from Serengeti National park across the invisible line into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Overnight at the same campsite.

Day 4
Early departure for Ngorongoro Crater to enjoy a game drive inside the Crater today. The Crater is home to a large number of animals – predators and prey, migratory and resident animals including the elusive rhino. It is also quite beautiful and memorable. Overnight at a campsite around Karatu or Mto wa Mbu villages (slight price increase for camping on Ngorongoro Crater rim).

Day 5
Morning village walk with possibility of shopping stops in the colorful village of Mto wa Mbu for inexpensive souvenirs and an interesting experience. For any art or carvings where quality is important, we suggest you purchase in the more upscale gift shops your driver can take you to that have more quality control in place than the informal market in Mto wa Mbu. We can have you back to Kilimanjaro airport for afternoon or evening flights. If you are staying over, we will drop you at your lodge or hotel in Arusha or Moshi (lodging tonight not included). Last meal included is lunch today.
