5 Days Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Safari
Day 1: Safari to Lake Manyara National Park
we depart at 08:30 from hotel proceeds to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two thirds of the park. At the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the ground water forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree- climbing lions.

You will enter Serengeti via Naabi Hill Gate and go ahead with game drives throughout the afternoon then later drive to the lodge/tented camp for overnight.
Day 3: Safari in Serengeti National Park
If you wish to see the animals waking up for a new day and the nocturnal predators retire from a night out in the plains, the you may go for an early morning game drive before returning for breakfast. The rest of the day is then spent game viewing in the endless plains in search of lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, baboons, zebras, topis, impalas and many more.
