Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Travel to Lake Manyara

Depart Arusha in the afternoon and head south passing through the Masai Steppe with its many African villages and coffee plantations. Continue up out of the Great Rift Valley and enjoy fantastic views over the distant Lake Manyara.

Arrive at the Lake Manyara Serena Lodge in the late afternoon. The camp is located high on a cliff with stunning views across the volcano-studded floor of the Great Rift Valley.

Days 2-3

Explore the Serengeti National Park

After breakfast head out on a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. Return to the lodge for lunch before continuing your journey to the Serengeti with some game viewing en route. Marvel at the endless plains as you enjoy peace and tranquility resting on the deck of the Serengeti Serena Lodge, your accommodation for the next two nights.  

The next day, enjoy a morning and afternoon game drive in the famous and game-rich Serengeti National Park, searching for the Big 5 and other wildlife.

Days 4-5

Descend into the Ngorongoro Crater

Leave the Serengeti behind and drive back through the Ngorongoro Conservancy, viewing game as you go. Arrive at the Serena lodge located high on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater.

After an early breakfast the next morning, descend into the Crater in a safari vehicle for a spectacular morning game drive. The Crater has been declared a World Heritage Site, and is sometimes referred to as the world's biggest wildlife zoo, due to its high density of resident game. After lunch back at the lodge, you’ll have the option to visit a Maasai village where local people have maintained their traditional ways.
