TANZANIA LODGE SAFARIS
MANYARA / NGORORNGORO / SERENGETI.
Depart Arusha for lake Manyara arriving in time for lunch. Stretching
for 50km along the base of the rusty gold 600-metre high Rift valley escarpments,
Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway
as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. The compact game
viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian
safari experience. Afternoon game drive to explore the park. Meals and
overnight at lodge.
Day 2. Ngorongoro.
Morning game drives in Lake Manyara, After breakfast depart for Ngorongoro,
one of the natural wonders of the world. The Crater is one of the world's
greatest natural spectacles; its magical setting and abundant wildlife
never fail to enthral visitors. It borders the Serengeti National Park
to the north and west. A few hours drive to the east takes you to the
town of Arusha, which nestles at the foot of Mount Meru, within view of
Mount Kilimanjaro. Arusha is known as the gateway to the Ngorongoro Conservation
Area and the Northern Parks. Dinner and overnight at a lodge.
Day 3. Ngorongoro Crater.
After breakfast you will be taken 2000ft down the crater by a 4wheel drive
vehicle for a full day crater tour, picnic lunch at crater, Also referred
to as “the eighth wonder of the world” and stretching across
some 8,300 sq km, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania
boasts a blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology that is
unsurpassed in Africa. The volcanoes, grasslands, waterfalls and mountain
forests are home to an abundance of animals and to the Maasai. In the
evening ascend to the lodge for dinner and overnight
Day 4. Serengeti.
After breakfast depart for Serengeti passing through Olduvai Gorge the
site of Leakey’s family discovery of fossils of human and animal
ancestors dating back to almost two million years. The Serengeti ecosystem
is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation
and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself
made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some
patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills
themselves. Meals and overnight at lodge.
Day 5. Serengeti.
Full day in Serengeti plains with morning and afternoon game viewing and
drive. Search for wild game you might have missed the previous game drive.
It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a
million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern
hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November,
and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June.
So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile
infested river can hold them back. Meals and overnight at lodge.
Day 6. Serengeti.
Another day in Serengeti with morning and afternoon game drives, Search
for any wild game you might have missed in the previous game drives. The
wildebeest are one of the most important pieces in the Serengeti ecosystem
puzzle. Their migration is as old as the history of mankind. For many
millenniums the wildebeest followed the rains and used the Serengeti ecosystem
with its mosaic of grasslands and savannas to their advantage. Every one
who has a chance to see nearly two million animals on the move has been
touched by the magic of this place. Even so the wildebeest looks a bit
like a clown and, according to an African legend, has been put together
by God using left over spare parts, the animal is superbly fit for its
migratory lifestyle. Dinner and overnight at lodge.
Day 7. Arusha.
After breakfast drive to Arusha- Safari Destination, it is a starting
point for safaris in the northern circuit arriving in time for lunch.
