Day 3: Serengeti Plains
On day 3 of the tour, hop in for a hot air balloon ride and be one of the only fortute people to glide over the Serengeti plains with an excellent birds-eye view from the top (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). You’ll be flying silently above the bushes, across the rivers and small villages while spotting wildlife and enjoying the scenic view. Upon landing, you’ll be served with hot breakfast and another game drive will follow into the Sogore River Circuit. It is located in the southern plains of the Seronera River which is an excellent spot for viewing lions, Thomson gazelles, ostriches, cheetahs, and topis. There’s a visitor center which is not far from the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and other public campsites. It is well worth a visit and you’ll be taken there after the game drive. This is a nice designed tourist center with shops selling information leaflets and maps of the area and other traditional souvenirs. Food and snack shops are also available. A picnic lunch can be arranged in here in the shade of one of the many giant acacia trees. In the afternoon after lunch, we’ll follow the Kopjes circuit which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes. It attracts significant number of lion and some large cobras. These kopjes are weathered granite outcrops which can be found scatterred around the plains. Most of these are miniature ecosystems which have valuable water sources in the pools beneath the rock. After rain, the waters get deposited in the pool. This makes the kopjes the go-to spot for animals for drinking water, especially in the dry season when there’s a water scarcity. Dinner and overnight at one of the lodges opted by you during booking.
Day 4: Serengeti Plains – Ngorongoro Crater
- Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
- Distance: 145 km
Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino. Because of the year-round water and fodder supply, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area accommdates a wide array of wild animals which includes the herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and African elephant. The huge population of predators is also another big draw of this picturesque area where you can spot lions, hyenas, cheetahs, jackals, leopards and sometimes the African wild dog. A picnic lunch will be arranged at the crater floor. Dinner and overnight will be arranged at the type of accommodation opted by you during the booking. The lodge will be in the crater rim as there is no accommodation available inside of the crater.
