Day 1: Arusha/Moshi - Lake Manyara National Park
In the morning we will collect you from your hotel and drive you to Lake Manyara National Park. The park lies and is bordered between the Rift Valley Escarpment and the dusty Masai Steppe. On the western side is a forest and also the alkaline Manyara lake which covers the largest area of the park.

The park was established in 1960 to give the elephants, giraffes, buffalo, antilopes and gazelles a protected habitat. The Lake Manyara National Park is also home to the tree climbing lions – tree climbing is a trait not normally found amongst big cats and it is quite a sight to see.
Upon entering the park your driver will open the vehicle roof and you can then start your wild life waching in earnest. In the late afternoon you will arrive at

Kirurumu Manyara Lodge for overnight. Lunch; Dinner

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park - Serengeti National Park
After breakfast the safari tour makes its way to the fertile crater highlands where the Iraqw people grow wheat, corn and coffee. At midday you will reach the plains of Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti National Park is the second largest park in Tanzania and is about the same size as Hawaii. The southern part is dominated by grassland and is therefore good hunting ground for the cheetah, while to the north / western parts a hillier tree savanna landscape dominates.
The Serengeti migration is famous of up to one million wildebeest and two hundred thousand zebras. This migration has become to be known as the “Great wildebeest Migration” and each year this natural spectacle is guaranteed. This in itself sets the Serengeti aside as a unique place to watch and observe wildlife
You will have your evening meal and overnight stay at Kati Kati Tented Camp . Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3: Serengeti National Park
The whole day is devoted to you to observe the wildlife in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you will visit depend upon the location of the herds. Generally the herds of wildebeest and zebras during the short rain season of October to November tend to be found moving from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. They return slowly during the longer rain season in April, May and June. Fluctuations in precipitation can affect the animals’ location from year to year, however your guide will know the exact location of the animals and the best vantage spots.
A visit to the Visit Centre , is also possible (booking in advance), where you can learn about Serengeti’s history and current research of Frankfurter Zoologische Gesellschaft (Frankfurt zoological society in Tanzania).

You will overnight again at Kati Kati Tented Camp . Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 4: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area
After breakfast you will continue your tour of the Serengeti National Park. In the Seronera Valley you can watch the wildebeest, zebras as well lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs. After lunch at a picnic place you will slowly drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way you will pass the Olduvai Gorge which became world known due to the archeological work of the English research couple Leaky. In the sixties here they found the oldest remains of prehistoric man and in a small museum nearby their work is documented (a visit is optional).

As soon as the crater’s edge is reached you will have a superb view into the caldera. Your lodge for the night will be Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge situated on the crater’s rim and you will be able to enjoy this once in a life time view as the sun sets. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha/Moshi
Breakfast is at day break before you drive into the crater. The Ngorongoro crater is the largest unbroken and unflooded caldera in the world and will fascinate you with unbelieveable wildlife diversity. On the grass stepp and in the acacia tree woods you will find almost all species found on the east african savanna; with the exception of Topi, Masai Giraffe and Impala. Quite often you can observe the “Big Five” lions, elephants, buffalo, rhinoceros and leopards within a couple of hours. After an extensive wildlife tour and a picnic you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and drive back to Arusha. Breakfast; Lunch

Dear Africa natural tours,

I just wanted to compliment you on the outstanding service we had on our recent Kill climb on the Lemosho route (Feb 4th-10th). Our guides were outstanding. Yahoo! was an incredible leader who managed the day to day operation of the camp and climbing in a calm and thoughtful manner. I also want to compliment Daniel, Jesse and Glory as well as all the others for their thoughtful and patient assistance on the climb. I couldn’t have done it without their help and expert guidance. Thanks for making the TDS climb such a successful experience.
Thanks Regards
