Day 1

Meet in Arusha. After lunch, drive through the Ngorongoro Highlands to your lodge situated on the rim of the
crater. The crater covers over 300 square kilometers of land and is the home of the rare black rhino, prides of lion,
elephant, cheetah and great herds of buffalo, antelope and wildebeest. Dinner and overnight at a lodge in
A UNESCO protected World Heritage Site and an International Biosphere
Reserve, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a pioneering experiment in
multi-purpose land use where people (the Maasai), their livestock and
wildlife coexist and share the same protected habitat. The craters of
Ngorongoro and Empakai are reserved exclusively for wildlife, while the
rest of the Conservation Area is shared by wildlife, people and livestock.
The Maasai, the main residents of Ngorongoro, are pastoralists who move
widely with their herds of cattle, sheep, goat and donkeys in search of
pasture and water. In recent years the Maasai have been encouraged to
work on the land and supplement their traditional diet of milk and meat.
The Ngorongoro Crater, which is the central attraction in the area, is the
largest Caldera in the world that has its walls intact. The Ngorongoro Crater
floor, a sheer drop of 610 meters below the crater rim, has an area of
about 300 square kilometers, with a diameter of 19 kilometers. The sight of
the Ngorongoro Crater is simply stunning. “There is nothing with which to
compare. It is one of the wonders of the world….” once wrote Professor
Bernard Grzimek. The crater floor is home to tens of thousands of plains
animals, including wildebeest, zebra, gazelles, elands, and a large predator
population of lions, hyena and jackal which can all be viewed at close
quarters. The rare black rhino can be viewed here, and if you are lucky you
can see cheetah and leopard. The rain season is between November and
May. The altitude at the crater rim is about 2286 meters above sea level,
and temperatures can get quite chilly in the evening, especially between
May to September.

Day 2

Today you will descend over 600 meters to the floor of the
crater for a day crater tour. Explore the forest areas that are
inhabited by monkey and elephant, the lake area, where you may see the flamingos and the open savannah where
the lions hunt for food. Picnic lunches will be served in the crater. Dinner and overnight at a lodge in Ngorongoro.

Day 3

After breakfast drive to Oldupai Gorge, site of Louis and Mary Leakey’s renowned archaeological discoveries. Their

A World Heritage Site and recently proclaimed a World Wide Wonder,
Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly one of the most famous wildlife

of Arusha, lying in a high plateau between the Ngorongoro highlands and
the Kenya/ Tanzania border, and extending almost to Lake Victoria to the
west, covering a total area of 14,763 square kilometres. Aptly named
“endless plains” by the Maasai people, you immediately experience this
vastness as you enter the southeastern plains of the park from

popular sanctuaries in East Africa. The park has a large variety of habitats,
making it possible to support a wealth of wildlife in its small area. The main
habitats include the shallow soda lake itself which occupies 77% of the
National Park total area of 330 square kilometres, the ground water forest,
