DAY 2

Tarangire-Ndutu Area

After breakfast, we will depart to the Lake Ndutu area situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Part of the southern Serengeti ecosystem. Lake Ndutu is alkaline like most of the other rift lakes; however, the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to April. The area is usually heavily populated with elephants, birds, and resident games. Explore the range of different habitats that include swamps, woodland, soda lakes, and the world-famous Serengeti short grass plains. See great herds of wildebeest and zebras. Wildebeest calves can run minutes after they are born and within 3 days, they are normally strong enough to keep up with the herd. You will do a game drive till late afternoon then slowly head to Ndutu heritage migration camp. https://heritagecampsandlodges.com/ndutu-camp/

DAY 4

Ndutu -Ngorongoro Crater Arusha

Early risers are rewarded with breath-taking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge and, after a hearty breakfast, we rumble down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO world heritage site, one of the seven wonders of Africa, formed about three million years ago, is 610 m deep and covers roughly 260 square kilometers. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25,000 ungulates, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. In a matter of minutes, we will be able to see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, and some of the more than 500 bird species that live here. With a little bit of luck, we may catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch, we leave the crater in the late afternoon and head to Arusha.

End of our services and hope you enjoyed our companion.
