Group options include or a nature walk or game drives in Lake Manyara National Park. With luck we might spot the Manyara lions, well known for their tree climbing habits, lazily resting on the branches of an Acacia tree.
Elephant, hippo, giraffe, buffalo, and other animals are present in Manyara National Park. The birdlife is also very impressive with flamingoes, pelicans, hornbills, and plenty of forest species. Enjoy the picnic near the park and overnight at the Ngorongoro Farm House.

At 0500hours, drive across the rift valley up the escarpment to Lake Eyasi to join a pre-dawn walk with Bushmen hunters or spend time participating in the morning routine of the settlement. Your local guide will interpret for you and discuss hunting techniques still used by the local tribes.
This dry and rugged landscape is inhabited by Bushmen who live in nomadic groups hunting with bow and arrow and gathering roots, tubers, and wild fruits.
Be prepared for an extraordinary cross-cultural experience as you join these nomadic Bushmen in their daily life. Return for overnight in a private mobile camp at the Ngorongoro Crater Verge.
Day 6 of the 11 Days Tanzania Wildlife Safaris Tour – Ngorongoro National Park
View game on the vast grasslands of the 100-meter crater floor. Spectacular animal life can be found throughout the year due to the everlasting availability of grass and water. Ngorongoro is one of the most mesmerizing game haunts in Africa and has been pointed at a World Heritage Site.
Local wildlife includes the black-maned lion, the highly endangered black rhino, jackal, zebra, elephant, wildebeest, hippo, and hyena, the most important predator within the crater.
The birdlife is also prolific with flocks of flamingoes on the Soda Lake as well as other species of water and plains birds. Weather permitting, morning walk near the Empakai Crater.
Day 7 of the 11 Days Tanzania Wildlife Safaris Tour: Ngorongoro
This impressive caldera is especially suited to hiking along the animal trails, escorted by a ranger. The scenery of Empakai is gorgeous, with islands of forest and a waterfall at the source of the Munge River.
Monkeys and buffalo are frequently seen in the area. Take an afternoon visit to the Masai village where herdsmen often grazing their cattle around the crater rim.
Please carry warm clothing as you are camping at 7000 feet. Two overnights at a private mobile camp on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.
Days 8-10 of the 11 Days Tanzania Wildlife Safaris Tour: Serengeti National Park (3 days)
Drive early morning to Serengeti plains, stopping en route at the Olduvai Gorge where Mary Leakey discovered remains of Australopithecus Homo habilis and Homo erectus. Serengeti is conceivably the most impressive wildlife sanctuary in the world.
These vast, seemingly ceaseless plains are inhabited during the migration by enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra. The herds attract the attention of predators like lions, cheetah, and hyenas. Serengeti also has got the massive granite Kopjes (islands of rock), standing in a sea of grass.
The Kopjes harbor a great variety of plants and animals, from the elusive leopard to the tiny dik-dik. The fabulous park is explored using vehicles mostly.
Walks will be offered in the Ikoma region outside the park from June – November and in the Southern sector of the park from December – May. Spend four nights at the private mobile campsite in a savage area near the migratory herds
