Lake Manyara – Serengeti – Ngorongoro safari – 5 day tour
Explore the Heart of Tanzania’s Parks Over 5 Days

Daily Private Safari Tour by 4x4 jeep

From / To Nairobi

Starts Nairobi/Ends Nairobi – We’ll pick you up from the airport or your hotel. Begin your safari in the comfort of a private  pop up top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser jeep. Then switch to your own  pop up top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser jeep in Tanzania.

You’ll see and feel the drama of this Tanzania safari and you’ll never forget the startling landforms and overwhelming wildlife in these parks. Lake Manyara’s elephants are a delight. Its unending sea of flamingos is breathless.

Millions of migrating animals, including the Big Five and other large predators, roam the vast Serengeti. The land here is timeless. You can touch a part of history at Olduvai Gorge, site of pre-historic man. Are you ready for the Serengeti?

Starting in Nairobi you’ll head out for Tanzania driving a scenic route through the Masai landscape. Weather permitting, you’ll enjoy views of snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro as you approach your border destination.

Your first stop, Lake Manyara National Park, is a gem with highlights such as tree climbing lions and great flocks of brilliant flamingos gathered along the lake. Although smaller in size, this park is amazingly dense with large animals. You can’t miss the many elephant, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest that inhabit this beautiful reserve.

Then we’re off to the great Serengeti and on the way make a must-see stop at Olduvai Gorge. It was at this site the earliest known human fossils were found. Indeed, walking the gorge you’ll experience the beginnings of humankind.

We move on to the seemingly endless expanse of Serengeti National Park. We’ll spend several days here at one of the premier wildlife watching spots in Africa, if not the world. The almost treeless grassland of the Serengeti plains reveals a vast display of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and impala, not to mention the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.

Within the immense Serengeti lies the Ngorongoro Crater – a massive, intact volcanic caldera. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to tens of thousands of animals inhabiting the immense crater floor. We will descend to this rich expanse for a day of intense wildlife viewing. Then later, when you think you’ve seen everything, we’ll head back up the crater to witness stunning sunsets at the rim.

On our final day we’ll proceed to the town of Arusha and cross back into Kenya, traversing the Masai country on our way back to Nairobi.

All-Inclusive – Your 5-day Kenya/Tanzania safari includes park entrance fees, accommodations and meals. Natural World Kenya Safaris always offers a wide choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.
