Meet our professional tours guide/driver in Moshi town, who will deliver a short safari briefing, after which, we will travel to the Lake Manyara National Park. We arrive in time for lunch at lodge/camp or we can take lunch box. After lunch, we head into the Lake Manyara National Park. This impressive park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park) at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Manyara’s famous tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.
Overnight and dinner at Migunga campsite.

Non-game viewing time: 2 hours

It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of the 'Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.

Day 3: Ngorongoro – Serengeti Plains
Non-game viewing time: None
Distance: None
After breakfast, we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see.
We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the 

richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.
Overnight and dinner at Seronera campsites (Pimbi).


Day 4: Serengeti Plains
Non-game viewing time: None
Distance: None
After breakfast, we do full day game drive. We will follow the Kopjes Circuit, which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes, which usually attract a number of lion and some formidably large cobras.
Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons including lions, which like to lie in wait for animals coming to drink.
Overnight and dinner at Overnight and dinner at Seronera campsites (Pimbi).


Day 5: Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Crater
Non-game viewing time: 2 hours
Distance: 137 km
After breakfast, we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Supported by 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 huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor late afternoon we depart to Sal Salinero Moshi where we will end our camping safari. The group should tip the tours guide around $20 for the day.
