ARUSHA N.P - LAKE MANYARA N.P - NGORONGORO C.A  – SERENGETI N.P

 

Day 1DEPART  ARUSHA – TRANSFER TO NGORONGORO CRATER FOR SAFARI

 

In this day you will depart from the hotel very early in the morning just after having taken a cup of coffee ready to descend into the ngorongoro crater  for your early gamedrive.The main feature of the NCA is the Ngorongoro Crater, a large, unbroken, unflooded volcanic caldera. The Crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, is 610 m (2,000 ft) deep and its floor covers 260 km2 (100 sq mi).[5] Estimates of the height of the original volcano range from fifteen to nineteen thousand feet (4500 to 5800 metres) high.

 

Although thought of as "a natural enclosure" for a very wide variety of wildlife, up to 20% or more of the wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) and half the zebra (Equus burchelli) populations vacate the Crater in the wet season. However, an effect of this 'enclosure' situation means that the population of Ngorongoro lions is severely inbred, with many genetic problems passed from generation to generation. This is due to the very small amount of new bloodlines that enter the local gene pool, with very few migrating male lions entering the crater from the outside. Animal populations in the crater include most of the species found in East Africa, but there are no impalas (Aepyceros melampus), topis (Damaliscus lunatus), oribis (Ourebia oribi), giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis), or crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus).
Your safari guide will be carrying well packed breakfast for you to have it in the crater- later after your gamedrive, you will drive back to the lodge for your late lunch- followed by a short rest thereafter you may join a nature work around the area for those who wish. Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro WILDLIFE LODGE – FB

 

Days 2 & 3:  THE SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast, leave Ngorongoro crater heading for the endless plains of Serengeti. En-route to the Serengeti, we will visit the historic site of Olduvai Gorge (The Cradle of Mankind) where the world famous archeologist, Dr Leakey, discovered the remains of the early man. After visiting the site and the small museum there, we proceed on to central Serengeti for lunch at the lodge.The Serengeti National Park is a large national park in Serengeti area, Tanzania. It is most famous for its annual migration of over one million and a half white bearded brindled) wildebeest and 200,000 zebras.


The Maasai people had been grazing their livestock in the open plains which they knew as “endless plain” for over 2000 years when the first European explorers visited the area. The name Serengeti is an approximation of the word used by the Maasai to describe the area. German geographer and explorer Dr. Oscar Baumann entered the area in 1892. [1] Baumann killed three rhinos during a stay in the Ngorongoro crater.
The first Briton to enter the Serengeti, Stewart Edward White, recorded his explorations in the northern Serengeti in 1913. Stewart returned to the Serengeti in the 1920s, and camped in the area around Seronera for three months. During this time he and his companions shot 50 lions.


Because the hunting of lions made them so scarce, the British decided to make a partial Game Reserve of 800 acres (3.2 km2) in the area in 1921 and a full one in 1929. These actions became the basis for Serengeti National Park, which was established in 1951. The Serengeti gained more fame after the initial work of Bernhard Grzimek and his son Michael in the 1950s. Together they produced the book and film Serengeti Shall Not Die, widely recognized as one of the most important early pieces of nature conservation documentary.As part of the creation of the park, and in order to preserve wildlife, the resident Maasai were moved to the Ngorongoro highlands. There is still considerable controversy surrounding this move, with claims made of coercion and deceit on the part of the colonial authorities.The Serengeti is Tanzania's oldest national park and remains the flagship of the country’s tourism industry, providing a major draw to the “Northern Safari Circuit”, encompassing Lake Manyara, Tarangire and Arusha national parks, as well as Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Later proceed to the lodge for your dinner and overnight at SERONERA WILDLIFE LODGE – FB

 

DAY 4: TRANSFER TO LAKE MANYARA PARK FOR SAFARI


In this day, you will depart from the Serengeti national park with game drive en route toward lake Manyara national park with a short stop to the maasai villages as well as Olduvai gorge for a short lecture.Lake Manyara is a shallow freshwater lake in Tanzania. Said by Ernest Hemingway to be the "loveliest lake ... in Africa," it is also the home of a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife. The name Manyara comes from the Maasai word emanyara, which is a euphorbia species of plant that is grown into a hedge around a family homestead (Euphorbia tirucalli).[citation needed] The name "is a Maasai description not for the lake, but in general for a lake shore region."[2]


Lake Manyara provides opportunities for ornithologists keen on viewing and observing over 300 migratory birds, including flamingo, Long-crested Eagle and Grey-headed Kingfisher. Arrival at Lake Manyara in evening hours. Dinner and overnight at  LAKE MANYARA HOTEL – FB

 

DAY 5:   FULL DAY SAFARI – LAKE MANYARA PARK
A morning game drives within Lake Manyara national park. Of the 127 square miles (329 km2) of Lake Manyara National Park, the lake's alkaline waters cover approximately 89 square miles (231 km2). While most known for baboons, the lake and its environs is also home to herbivores such as hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes. Giant fig trees and mahogany seen in the groundwater forest immediately around the park gates draw nourishment from the underground springs replenished continuously from crater highlands directly above the Manyara basin. Leading away from the forest to the fringes of Lake Manyara are the flood plains. To the south are visible the acacia woodlands. Leopards, although in abundance, are hard to get a glimpse of, just like the other elusive carnivores - the lions - of this park. Back to the lodge in the afternoon for your hot lunch- followed by a short rest, later your local guide joins you for a nature work around the area- Dinner and overnight at -  Lake Manyara Serena safari lodge. – FB
