Tanzania Escapade: Ngorongoro & The Serengeti

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,799

MODERATE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Experience two of Tanzania’s and the world’s greatest game parks, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park with their abundance of fascinating wildlife. Also have a visit to the Olduvai Gorge with its amazing archaeological finds.


The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a park in the north west of Tanzania and is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ’8th Natural Wonder of the World’. It contains an old volcano that has collapsed and formed a crater and the steep sides of the crater have become a natural enclosure for a wide variety of wildlife. Lions are in the highest density in the world in the crater so there is an excellent chance of seeing them. On arrival at Arusha airport, you will be taken to the Ngorongoro Crater where you will later have a tour of the crater with overnight accommodation here.

Drive the next morning to Serengeti National Park, possibly the most renowned park stretching north to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the west. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai language meaning 'endless plains'. It is also well known for its animal migration which takes place twice a year. En route, visit the Olduvai Gorge where the Leakeys discovered the remains of a 1.8 million year old skeleton, one of the distinct links of the human evolutionary chain. Fossils found here show that the area is one of the oldest sites of human habitation in the world. After lunch, you have a game drive in the Serengeti National Park. Spend 2 nights here. The following day, enjoy morning and afternoon game drives.

The next day, you are taken back to Arusha airport.

    Tanzanias prehistoric Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Eighth Wonder of the World, has yawned heavenward for millennia. Nestled high above the plains into the Craters jagged rim, cloaked in river stone and indigenous vines, Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge is barely visible to the naked eye. Framed by arched stone passages and timbered decks, its torch-lit walls are adorned with stylized cave paintings. At the stone heart of the lodge burns a glowing fire, which is kept constantly alight. Rooms are looped around the Crater rim. Each has its own rock-enclosed balcony, and all enjoy completely uninterrupted views of the volcanic amphitheater far below. Our Ngorongoro hotel lodge is a place that feels as ancient as the Crater itself, yet no modern comfort has been spared in an effort to bring you the best safari adventure in Africa and one of the most unique travel experiences in the world.

    Set high on the saddle of tree-clad ridge commanding panoramic views over the endlessly rolling reaches and volcanic reefs of the Serengeti, the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate fusion of traditional African architecture and world-class style. Centrally located adjacent to the famous Western Corridor and Grumeti River, the lodge has been designed to blend completely into the living landscape. Each charmingly presented room is accommodated in a two-storey (one up, one down) stone-built, traditionally-thatched 'Rondavel'. The 'Rondavels' are widely spaced throughout the grounds, which are cooled by groves of acacia trees and watered by sparkling streams.
