This morning we meet our expert guide who will be with us for the next few days. Boarding our 4x4 safari vehicles we leave Moshi and head through Arusha out towards the national parks. Our first stop is Lake Manyara. This unique park covers an area of 325 km² including about 230 km² lake surface - home to migratory flamingos. We have the afternoon game driving in this park in search of the tree-climbing lion, and the numerous wildlife species.

After a rewarding game drive we overnight in the small village of Karatu.

Day 3. Karatu to Serengeti National Park Highlights. Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania.

From Karatu we head onwards and upwards into the highlands and the conservation area stopping en route at the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater to observe the spectacular views over the crater's floor. We continue to Olduvai Gorge, one of the most important fossil sites in the world where we learn a little about the significant remains of early man that were found here.

This afternoon we enter the Serengeti National Park and game drive across the sweeping plains dotted with wildlife to our tented camp deep in the park.

Day 4. Serengeti National Park Highlights. Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

Rising early, we leave the comfort of our camp and head out for a full- day game drive in search for the abundance of wildlife. With a staggering 500 species of birds and 300 species of mammals, we will be sure to have a rich wildlife experience.

Depending on the time of year and area of the park we are driving in, we may encounter the large herds of grazing animals on their annual migration through the Serengeti plains.

Day 5. Serengeti National Park to Ngrorongoro Crater Highlights. Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.

Today, we leave our camp and game drive over the vast plains of the Serengeti and ascend up to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. After lunch with a view, we board our safari vehicles and descend the steep slopes of the crater to the base floor. Here we are rewarded with a game drive in this extinct volcano home to all the major African animals with the exception of giraffe.

After an enjoyable afternoon we ascend the crater walls and continue on to our accommodation in the village of Karatu.
