Day 1
Visited park: Lake Manyara National Park
Dinner and overnight: Exploreans Ngorongoro
Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro airport you will be met by your private guide and car and depart to Lake Manyara NP to enjoy a gentle game driving.

Day 2
Visited park: Ngorongoro crater
Dinner and overnight: Exploreans Ngorongoro
After breakfast you will depart with your guide and car to spend the day game driving into the famous caldera with picnic lunch. Since you can entirely dictate the pace you might decide to leave the crater as late as possible or to return to the lodge after the picnic to relax.

Day 3
Visited park: Serengeti central
Dinner and overnight: Lemala Ewanjan
In central Serengeti the progression of the dry season forces animals to adapt to different lifestyles than in green season ... Gazelles and antelopes have to gather along permanent rivers and water sources ... predators are compelled to compress their territory close to the same water sources ... Seronera is hosting the largest population of cats in Africa ...

Day 4
Visited park: Serengeti central and surroundings
Dinner and overnight: Lemala Ewanjan
A full day out in the bush ... at dawn to sight predators hunting or returning from their nightly hunting forays and to witness cubs playing ... nearby the river courses where predators wait their preys moving along very predictable routes ... driving through alternative and more remote locations in the afternoon in order to enjoy a truly excellent wilderness experience where almost no other cars will be met ... lunch at the camp or pic nic, since you are travelling with private car and vehicle you can entirely dictate the pace of your day.

Note on the Serengeti migration:
Between the end of June and the beginning of July the wildebeest migration usually abandons the western corridor heading north, to the Serengeti Mara region. Should it be possible to intercept a large group along its way your guide will certainly inform you about the opportunity however, with this itinerary, it is usually better to focus on central Serengeti since Serengeti Mara [where herds will be gathering together] cannot be reached with a daily excursion from Seronera and no other part of the park will offer you the same high concentration of predators and cats as Seronera does. If you are interested in witnessing the wildebeest migration we would recommend to spend at least 4 full days in Serengeti combining the visit of both the central and northern sectors of the park, see for instance our safari 606L or 607L


Day 5
After breakfast take your last game drive in Seronera along the way to the airstrip. A morning flight will scoop you from here and take you to Arusha or to Kilimanjaro airport. Should you wish your journey to continue to the beach then we can extend the domestic flight to the coast or to the islands of Tanzania ...
