Days 3: Tarangire –

On our way to the Serengeti, we’ll pass through scenic
Mosquito Creek, cross the Great Rift Valley escarpment, and enjoy the
breathtaking views of the Ngorongoro Highlands, where you will get your first
glimpse of the Ngorongoro Crater. Along the way, you will see the Maasai

lunch so you can continue to enjoy the scenic beauty. We proceed with a game on route as we enter
the Serengeti and make our way to a luxury safari camp for dinner and a night
Ang’ata Serengeti Camp
known for its warm hospitality, stellar views, and outstanding cuisine
Day 4: Serengeti
Today is a full game drive. The Serengeti is one of the most
stunning wildlife sanctuaries in the world. The name comes from the Maasai word
“siri nget” meaning “endless plains”. This vast savannah hosts the world’s
largest surviving concentration of endless plains. In addition to the short
grasses, there are beautiful rocky out-cropping called kopjes and thousands of
acres of bush and acacia woodland. In the Central Serengeti, known as the
Seronera, there is a plentiful supply of water which lures the big cats and
elephants during the dry season; it’s the perfect spot for taking pictures and
for our picnic lunch.
During the middle of December to March and July to September,
get ready to see the wildebeest marching down from the hills of the Northern
Serengeti. Approximately 1.5 million wildebeest migrate annually throughout the
Serengeti and Masai Mara. In the mix are zebra and gazelle which bring the
population of those crossing the plains to 2 million. During the height of the
migration, the floor of the Serengeti is blanketed with wildebeest. We’ll take
you to the centre of the action where you’ll see an endless stream of
wildebeest racing across the roads, lingering by the nearest waterhole,
playfully locking horns with each other, and grazing leisurely on the lush
We continue northward to explore the changing eco-systems
and search for wildlife including lions, leopards, elephants, hyenas, antelopes
and soaring eagles. At the end of the day, we return to our camp for fine
cuisine and a night of rest.

Today, we continue with another adventure-filled game drive.
Our expert guide and driver commit to taking you to those remote locations that

interests, they will take you off the beaten tourist track to explore the
untamed wilderness that is distinctively the Serengeti. Get ready to experience
the real Serengeti that so few have seen. Lunch is served overlooking the
stunning plains of the Serengeti. In the afternoon, we make our way to the

Site - Ngorongoro Crater - for game viewing on the crater floor. The crater is the
