After having breakfast, we’ll make our way to the Ngorongoro crater, but not without making a few stops along the way. Our first stop will be the African Art Gallery, a remarkable exhibition of souvenirs including paintings, wood and stone carvings, clothing, and more.

Our second stop will take us to the Tanzanite Museum, where we’ll have the opportunity to learn about the mining of tanzanite in Tanzania and the process of making it into exquisite jewelry. You might even be tempted to purchase some souvenirs or a beautiful piece of tanzanite jewelry.

By mid-afternoon, we’ll reach the Ngorongoro Coffee Lodge, where we’ll enjoy a late lunch and check in to our charming cottage-style accommodation. Overlooking the coffee plantation and Ngorongoro forest, the lodge provides a peaceful retreat for you to unwind and relax.

After indulging in a delectable buffet breakfast, we’ll embark on an exhilarating Ngorongoro Crater safari, complete with a packed picnic lunch on the crater floor.

Our descent of 600 meters into the Ngorongoro Crater floor will lead us to a habitat teeming with vast populations of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle, as well as a significant number of lions and hyenas. In addition to these incredible creatures, the Ngorongoro Crater is also home to an array of other fascinating animals, including rhinoceros, leopards, hippopotamus, eland, elephants, cape buffalos, warthogs, flamingos, ostriches, jackals, and much more.

The Ngorongoro Crater also has a high population of lions which are regularly seen on safari. So expect to see a lot of lions today.

We will pause for a midday picnic lunch by the lake, which boasts an abundance of birdlife and distant sightings of hippos. Our safari adventure will draw to a close as we return to the lodge at around 4:00 PM.

This area is known as the Ngorongoro Conservation area where Masai tribes coexist with wild animals. During this scenic drive, we’ll encounter many Masai villages, where the Masai people herd their sheep, goats, and cattle. As well as see wildlife such as zebras and giraffes.

En route, we’ll make a stop for a Masai Village tour to learn more about their way of life. Around lunchtime, we’ll arrive at the stunning Lake Masek Tented Camp in Ndutu, where we’ll check in.

Ndutu is a unique location in Tanzania, where you can encounter a wide variety of wildlife during your safari. The Ndutu region is especially famous for its big cats, including lions, leopards, and cheetahs. In fact, Ndutu has one of the highest concentrations of big cats in Africa. You’ll have a great opportunity to spot these magnificent predators during your game drives, as they roam the savannah in search of prey.

Apart from the big cats, Ndutu is also home to several other exciting species.

As we travel through central Serengeti, we’ll head towards the western corridor, famous for the wildebeest migration in June and the Grumeti River. Here, you can encounter hippopotamuses and some of Africa’s largest Nile crocodiles. We’ll reach our lodge by 4:00 PM, giving you time to unwind in your spacious room or the outdoor horizon pool and cocktail bar before dinner.

Day 7 & 8 Serengeti

Known by many as ‘big cat country’, Serengeti is the park’s most popular destination safaris in Africa. The Serengeti offers the best chance to see big cats like lions, cheetahs, and elusive leopards in the wild.

Despite large numbers of predators, herbivores like diminutive impala and towering elephants are also abundant in Serengeti National Park and you may just spot them grazing amongst the kopjes and acacia trees.

As well as searching for these beautiful animals, we will also follow the herds in the great migration which consists of approximately 1.5 million wildebeest, 650,000 zebra and 350,000 thompsons gazelle. We will also keep a close eye on the Grumeti for wildlife river crossings which is a spectacular sight as the animals cross the river dodging large nile crocodiles.

For an extra cost, you may wish to take a hot air balloon ride to experience an aerial view of the Serengeti plains, followed by a lavish champagne bush breakfast.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Departure

After a delightful breakfast, our final game drive in Serengeti awaits before catching a short flight from Serengeti to Kilimanjaro in the late morning. The game drive will offer you a chance to witness the Serengeti come to life with breathtaking views of the African savannah and herds of majestic animals grazing peacefully.

If your next destination’s flight schedule permits, you may opt to extend your stay by an additional night in Arusha or Kilimanjaro. This is a great opportunity to soak in the culture and beauty of Tanzania while enjoying its hospitality. There is no shortage of things to do, from visiting local markets to trying out the traditional cuisine.

Additionally, we strongly suggest considering the addition of a few extra nights in Zanzibar to your itinerary. This idyllic island is the perfect way to end your safari tour, with its pristine beaches, clear blue waters, and vibrant coral reefs. You can indulge in a range of activities from snorkeling, diving, and swimming to exploring the historic Stone Town or simply basking in the sun. We would be pleased to provide you with quotes upon request so you can make the most of your time in this beautiful country.
