This 3 days group camping safari will take you to the world’s most visited parks. This is because; (i) Serengeti National Park is one of the best-known wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and symbolizes the classic African safari. (ii) The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. It is one of the most beautiful natural wildlife safari sites in the world and an exceptional place to interact with people from the Maasai tribe.
After breakfast, you will drive to the lush crater uplands, where the fertile soil allows crops such as wheat, corn, and coffee to grow. You will have lunch at a picnic spot before you slowly drive towards the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way, you will pass the Oldupai Gorge where the English couple, Louis and Mary Leak, pioneered archaeological excavation work. In the sixties, some of the earliest archaeological deposits of human evolution were found here and a small museum (visit optional) reports these discoveries. The name “Serengeti” origins from the Masai word “Siringitu” and means “endless plains”. You can see why the Masai gave this region this name as the grassland savannah stretches to the horizon in the South and is only interrupted by the so-called Kopjes (inselbergsIn the afternoon, you will reach the destination for the day – the Seronera Valley in the central Serengeti area.
After breakfast, you will continue the game drive through the Serengeti National Park. You will sight hundreds of wildebeests and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs in the Seronera Valley. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater, the caldera opens up before you and you will have a remarkable sight over this impressive natural wonder.
After an early breakfast, you will drive down into the crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and fascinates with unbelievable wildlife diversity. On the grass steppe and in the acacia tree woods, you will find almost all species that are found in the East African savannah; with the exception of topis, Masai giraffes and impalas. Quite often, you can observe the “Big Five” (lions, elephants, buffalos, rhinoceros and leopards) within a couple of hours. Later drive to Karatu for dinner & overnight at a camp.
