4 Days Ngorongoro Safari
4 Days Ngorongoro safari, get the true feeling of African wilderness! Rich with wildlife. Our 4 days Ngorongoro safari as short as its gives you the true sample of wildlife experience you are looking for.
Day 1 – Arusha – Lake Manyara
Pick up from Arusha and transfer to Lake Manyara national park. This happens early in the morning as we start our 4 days Ngorongoro safari with warm African tea.
We arrive in the afternoon check in at the lodge for lunch. After lunch lunch we head into the Lake Manyara National Park for an evening game drive as we start the wildlife experience of our 4 days Ngorongoro safari. This national park is one of Tanzania’s most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park), located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park’s varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.
Dinner and overnight at the lodge of your standard choice
Day 2 – Lake Manyara – Serengeti Plains
After breakfast we head to our second destination of 4 days Ngorongoro safari that is Serengeti National Park via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Have brief stopover at crater view point to the aerial view of the crater. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see.
Have lunch at Nabbi gate for lunch and refreshments before we head inside the animal centaury for enroute game drive as we head to our lodge. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 3 – Serengeti Plains – Ngorongoro crater
Day 3 of 4 days Ngorongoro safari, wake up early for African breakfast and get our lunch boxes ready as we go for morning game drive insearch for what we missed yesterday. After the game drive we depart to Ngorongoro Conservation area. We will stopover at Olduvai Gorge (optional), boasting with a history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of ‘Nutcracker Man’ and ‘Handy Man’, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.
We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national 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. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually have been seen here. Dinner and overnight at the lodge.
