Day 3 - TARANGIRE / LAKE MANYARA
After breakfast, we depart to Lake Manyara for a Half day Game drive. Nestled at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is recognized for its incredible beauty. You can see many game animals such as buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala, hippos, and others. The vast majority of the national park area is taken up with the lake itself, so naturally this corner of Tanzania is known for water birds. At the lakeside you can spot greater and lesser flamingo, great white pelican, great white egret, cormorants and plovers in vast numbers – all alongside lazing hippos and trotting warthogs Later Drive back to the Lodge for Dinner and Overnight stay.Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
DAY 4 -LAKE MANYARA - NGORONGORO CRATER
After breakfast, we will proceed to Ngorongoro crater for a game drive, which is the 8th natural wonder of the world and the unique, world famous caldera with the most abundant wildlife. We will descend into the Ngorongoro crater floor.From the comfort of your open-top vehicle, descending down the crater, you will enjoy amazing panoramic view and if you are lucky, you will see the Big five.The caldera is exhibiting more than 120 species of mammals. We will also visit saline lakes such as lake Magadi, which is a magnet for flamingos and other water birds.We will see pools full of hippos, the endangered East Africa’s last black rhinos including birds such as secretary bird, white stork arriving from Europe during the wet season, kori bustards, crowned cranes and ostriches. It is for sure a landscape of sheer beauty. Another big draw card to this picturesque park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot.After the thrills and excitement of the day, you will have a picnic lunch in the park. Thereafter, we will drive back to the Lodge for Overnight stay on the Crater Rim.Meals Plan: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner
DAY 5 - NGORONGORO NP - SERENGETI NP
After breakfast at the Lodge, we will start our drive past the unique and gorgeous Ngorongoro Conservation Area to the Serengeti National Park.The warm and inviting colors of the very core of African wildlife are a symbol of the Serengeti National Park. The most intriguing, yet amazing natural legend of the timeless African landscape rolls before your eyes when the wildebeest embark on the most important journey of their lives: the amazing migration, which is often referred to as the “Eighth wonder of the world.”The height of their expedition is a blast for all the spectators, since there is practically no need for a game drive. As far as the eye can see, thousands upon thousands of animal’sherds when the migration reaches its pinnacle; from tall and graceful giraffes, which feed on the tops of trees and pay no attention to the visitors, to bulky, yet sweet hippos, which trim the grasses in the serene nights, jumping antelopes and gazelles and the most respected group of animals: predators. You will be able to spot lean cheetahs and shy leopards, foraging hyenas, which laugh their way through the plains, powerful crocodiles in the Grumeti river, which pray discreetly for the sick and weak animals at the crossing and last but not least, the king himself; the lazy lion, slowly marching through the savannah and letting the “mistress” hunt for fresh meals.We will then head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area. This area provides a variety of habitats for wild animals, the most important of them being the Seronera river, which is the main attraction for herds of game and families of predators, because it is a rich source of water to quench their thirst. For this reason, the great majority of animal species in the Serengeti National Park can be found here and thus it would be a sin not to stop and watch the animals in their natural habitat. We will drive south of the Seronera river, along the Sogore river circuit to look for Thompson’s gazelles, topes, ostriches and possibly also predators, such as lions or cheetahs.We recommend a visit to the Visitors Center. It is a great spot to see some wildlife or buy information leaflets or maps of the area. You can buy a snack or drinks at the center too and take a walk around a kopje in the vicinity or cool in the picnic area, where we will eat our picnic lunches and the giant acacia trees will protect you from the hot sunrays.Dinner and overnight at the Tented Camp in the heart of the Serengeti National Park .Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

FAQs

What can I expect on a typical safari day?
This is your safari trip, your adventure! You decide how you want to spend your time on this vacation. If you would like to spend a full day on safari, you are definitely welcomed to do so. Visa Expeditions does not restrict your mileage, fuel or how much time you want to be on safari. While some days you may decide set out by sunrise, other days you can have a slower-paced breakfast before starting your daily exploration. Simply sit down with your guide to plan your day and meals the night before. Your guide will have plenty of suggestions, but of course, the decision is yours.
What to Bring on Safari
Safaris are casual vacations! Dress comfortably and pack lightly. As you will be spending most of your safari viewing in the vehicle, loose-fitting and light coloured clothing is recommended. Avoid dark colours (i.e. black, dark blue) as they tend to attract unwanted attention from insects such as the tsetse fly.
What are the park fee regulations?
All park fees and conservation fees have a 24 hours limit. We plan your itinerary according to the park permits paid. Your safari driver guide will brief you the night before and provide suggestions regarding your schedule. Please note that any penalty fee resulting from the client’s wish to extend their stay will be at the guest’s expense.
Am I allowed to walk around the national parks?
It is recommended to stay inside your vehicles at all times when you are in the national parks unless your driver-guide find a safe area to stop for lunch or to stretch your legs. If you are keen on hiking, there are guided walks that are available in Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro. Within the Serengeti National Parks, long walks are not permitted during to conservation reasons, however, some lodgings will offer short walks near the lodge or camp.
Will there be wildlife roaming at the camps and lodges?
It is important to never assume that any of the animals encountered on your game drive are tame. Though attacks by wild animals are unusual, nothing in the African wilderness is predictable. While you are staying in your safari lodges and camps, it is important to be especially cautious and aware of your surroundings as many of these areas are not fenced and contain wildlife roaming freely. If you have children with you, keep them in sight and do not let them wander alone. At smaller tented lodges, you will always be escorted to and from your tent for dinner or during the night. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to raise them to the staff or your guide.
