On this day your safari will start at 7:15 AM and drive to Lake Manyara National Park. The park offers a mosaic of vegetation habitats which can sustain a high density of wildlife. Its groundwater forest which acts like a giant filtering sponge which gradually releases water so it can flow gently into streams, instead of running off, prevents the soil from eroding. From its high concentrations of animals such as elephant, buffalo, and antelopes to its dense forests of Trichilia, ficus, and Acacia species, the park is diverse with both wildlife and vegetation. With its location at the base of the east African rift valley along the Gregory rift, it offers spectacular viewing of the escarpment. Lake Manyara is one of those national parks which offer rich and diverse game viewing within a reasonably small area. It is one of the best areas for elephant viewing and tree climbing lions.
After breakfast, you will drive towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Serengeti National Park is the endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. You will continue with a game drive to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.
You will leave early in the morning around 8:00 AM after breakfast for a full game drive along the Sogore river circuit which loops into the plains south of the Seronera river which is good for viewing lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich, and cheetah sightings. After having a picnic lunch you will follow the kopjes circuit which usually attracts a number of lion and some formidable large cobras, Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops scattered around the plains its provide drinking in a pools left in the lock after the rain, this makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons including lions, which like to lie and wait for animals coming to drink water.
You will wake early in the morning and having breakfast then start a game drive at 7:00 AM to see nocturnal predators returning from hunting. Continue with game routine towards Ngorongoro conservation area and pass through Naabi Hill Gate.
