The Serengeti is currently categorized as one of the seven natural wonders of Africa. We will stop for an enticing picnic lunch on a kopje (rock outcropping). After lunch your game drive will venture further into the central Serengeti to complete the tour for the day. Dinner and overnight either at Embalakai or Domel wilderness camps.

Animals can be seen in very large herds, especially wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and other antelopes. The park is one of the largest in the world; its animal concentration and abundance is unequalled. The annual migration of wildebeest and zebra occurs in this park in [may-June] in the park’s central plains where there are carnivores like lions, leopards, hyenas and cheetahs, then later drive back to your Lodge/ Camp for dinner/Overnight.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

We will depart for the Ngorongoro Crater early in the morning after breakfast as it is a wonderful time to spot games. We will go on a game drive with a picnic lunch inside the crater. Majority of the animals tend to reside within the crater due to its elevated structure. There is a high possibility of spotting every member of ‘The Big 5’. The group comprises some of the strongest animals in Africa – the ferocious lion, the giant elephant, the swift leopard, the tough rhino and the charging buffalo. The Crater was formed millions of years ago when a large volcano erupted. You can expect to encounter zebras, hippo, wildebeest and cackling hyenas. There are graceful flamingos along the Soda Lake and vultures are constantly circling the sky in search of discarded carcasses. Storks and geese are popular water birds in the crater, after lunch you will proceed with game en-route back to Arusha at the hotel of your choice.
