Day 4: Full Day Ngorongoro Conversation Area

The Ngorongoro Crater is rich in biodiversity, with all the big game spotted here.  At one side there’s the Lerai Forest, a classic mountain forest landscape with almost tropical characteristics. This is good elephant country, so keep your eyes peeled. By the side of the nearby swampland is what is sometimes called the ‘elephant graveyard’ as the mighty male tuskers at the end of their lives come to chew on the soft, swampland grasses once their teeth have failed them.

The crater has a population of around 120 lions, with well-defined territories; 15,000 gnus, 9,000 zebra, 400 hyenas, and around 50 black rhino. Many gnu and other herd animals are resident, benefiting from the many sources of year-round waters and are boosted by some migrators in season. Buffalo, Serval, Jackal, Thomson’s gazelle, and eland are also present in numbers. Hippos can be found in pools and swampland and highland birdlife is colorful and plentiful around the waters. Flamingos can often be seen in Lake Magadi, which occupies part of the crater floor. After your evening game drive, you will head to your accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 5: Transfer to Serengeti National Park

After early morning breakfast, leave Ngorongoro crater driving to Serengeti National Park, home to approximately 3 million animals, one of Africa’s most celebrated wildlife conservation areas. Depending upon the time of year, you have the chance to witness the great migration with hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, and Thompson gazelles. During the small rainy season in October and November, you will typically see these herds moving from the Kenyan Masai Mara through the northwest of the Serengeti to the plains in the south. After the great rainy season in April, May, and June, the herds slowly travel back through the western and north-western parts of the Serengeti. With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes. Your guide will try his utmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see them from the best spot in the national park. Naturally, the migration also attracts predators and with luck, you might see a kill in action. Dinner and overnight at your stated accommodation
