Arusha - Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast, you will drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Set against the steep escarpment of the Rift Valley, you’ll find Manyara’s evergreen groundwater forest. While it may look like a rain forest, there is actually very little rainfall here. Instead, the vegetation is sustained by mineral springs seeping through porous volcanic soil. In additional to the evergreen groundwater forest, the park also contains a variety of ecosystems including acacia woodland, grassy plains, a swampy fan delta, and – of course – the expansive lake. This diversity attracts a wide variety of mammal, bird, and wildlife species.
Bird watching is spectacular at Manyara, with over 380 bird species recorded. Flocks of flamingos are attracted to the large amounts of algae in the lake’s soda environment, while the forest areas attract large flocks of pelicans, storks, herons, ibis, and egrets.
Manyara is home to rare tree climbing lions. This adaptation is unusual for these big cats. Look for the antics of blue monkeys, vervet monkeys, and very active baboon troops. Buffalo, impala, giraffe, bushbuck, waterbuck, hippos, and lots of elephant’s roam near the lake. There are also sightings of klipspringers on the rocky escarpments on the southern side of the rift wall. Overnight at Lake Manyara Serena Lodge.
Lake Manyara - Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, we will depart for a full day game drive at the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This is an extensive highland area along the eastern arm of the Great Rift Valley, with the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. It is not a national park in the strict sense of the word, but was rather established to conserve wildlife and other natural resources. It exists to safeguard the interests of indigenous people as well as promote tourism. Thus, guests on safari have the unique experience of seeing Maasai herdsmen with their cattle’s among the tremendous variety of wildlife found in the area.
Accommodation: Ngorongoro Serena Lodge
Road Transfer to Serengeti National Park
Head out after breakfast for the drive to Serengeti National Park. Picnic lunch at Olduvai Gorge while you stop to visit the famous Leakey digs. The Rift Valley was home to the first humans, and the Leakey family has successfully excavated some of the oldest humanoid skeletons ever discovered. Many people believe that Olduvai is the birth place of humanity. The word “Serengeti” is derived from the Maasai language, meaning “endless plain.” This vast savanna grass land extends from Northern Tanzania and into the Maasai Mara in Kenya for over twelve thousand square miles, forming one of the world’s largest wildlife refuges. The annual migration is what makes the Serengeti famous. The migration includes vast herds of wildebeest, but also zebra and Thomson’s gazelle.

Serengeti (Follow Migration Path – North, East, South, or West)
Drive towards the tracking direction of the wildebeest migration. The Great Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti is the largest single movement of wild animals in the world, deservedly listed as one of its eight Natural Wonders and an exceptional inspiration for a dream nature tour of northern Tanzania. Around 1.5 million wildebeests, with hundreds of thousands of zebras, elands, gazelles along with a trailing retinue of predators, leave their calving grounds in southern Serengeti, around March and April, heading for the next water source.
Trekking via the south-central Seronera outskirts into the Western Corridor and Grumeti River arriving during the month of April to May and residing till June, and then finally towards the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya crossing the perilous Mara River around July or August onwards with a return via the same death-defying river, this time heading to the bearing of Lobo and Loliondo in eastern Serengeti around October to November. The white bearded wildebeest journey continues back to the southern Ndutu calving grounds with arrivals starting around December with temporary residence till March. The timing of the migration depends upon the annual rains and renewal of fresh pasture which may occur earlier or later in some years.

Masai Mara Conservancy
Masai Mara National Reserve
Offering superb plains scenery, unmatched safari activities and diverse wildlife, Masai Mara National Reserve is considered Kenya’s best park and one of Africa’s highest wildlife density region for predators. The reserve covers 583 square miles (1510 square kilometers) of outstanding wilderness in southwest Kenya. The location, wildlife, activities and comfortable moderate climate puts Mara at the top of the list, even for the most discerning traveler to Kenya. Many private conservancies have been introduced to protect the land that surrounds the reserve, thereby providing more area for wildlife. The lands not only protect habitats for resident species, but also preserve a critical part of the route used by wildebeests and zebras during the Great Migration that traverses the Masai Mara via the Serengeti National Park.
Recognized as one of the most spectacular wildlife events on the planet, the migration is a continuous route that is followed by an over 1.5 million wildebeests and thousands of zebras, gazelles and elands. In their never-ending pursuit for the finest grazing and watering grounds, the gnu relocate on an almost constant basis. The migrators of Masai Mara National Reserve are present from approximately late July – early August until end of October – early November.
The reserve and surrounding conservancies offer diverse resident species experiences during your safari excursions. You will frequently see impalas, topis, giraffes, elephants, zebras, buffalos, warthogs and other grazing herbivores. With so many prey animals, Masai Mara is a veritable bonanza for large predators, such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles and other stealthy, powerful hunters. The abundance of terrestrial animals is enhanced by the presence of more than 450 winged species, including 57 birds of prey.

- Mara North Private Conservancy (Northern Masai Mara)
Mara North Conservancy protects and preserves the wilderness, flora and fauna of the northwestern zone of a globally-significant ecosystem that is shared with Masai Mara National Reserve. Located at the northern edge of Masai Mara, the habitats within the conservancy are necessary for the safeguarding of resident and migratory species, such as the wildebeests and zebras that traverse the area during the Great Migration. Additionally, the ecology supports a large number of herbivores and predators, including the Big 5 and many threatened and critically endangered species. Mara North Conservancy was structured in 2009 and covers 74,000 acres. The conservancy represents a collaborative effort between the 12 member accommodations in the conservancy and more than 800 Maasai landowners.
The model of wildlife management that is demonstrated by the conservancy serves to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of balancing human needs with conservation goals. The revenues that are derived from conservancy fee and part bed night income are used to promote the protection of the animals, as well as to improve the quality of life for the indigenous Maasai people.
