You would be picked up from
Kilimanjaro airport and proceed for the night stay at a hotel in Arusha.
Day 2: Moving towards Ndutu
The day would start early at
around 8 in the morning. You would be picked up from the hotel in Arusha and
head towards the Ndutu region. The drive of 260 km would be covered in about
5.5 hours. You would be passing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and
notice how the landscapes start changing here. At Ndutu, you would have a
half-day game drive and a picnic lunch. This region forms a part of the annual
migration with about 2 million wildebeests and significant numbers of antelope,
zebra and gazelle. Six species of big cats can be seen here - lion, leopard,
cheetah, serval, caracal and wildcat. There would be freshly prepared dinner
for you at night.
Day 3: A wonderful day at Ndutu
You would get another shot at
viewing the spectacle of the Serengeti. The Ndutu region is a part of the
Serengeti National Park as well as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There
would be a full day game drive after you have had your breakfast. We would be
following the migration actually. You might get to witness the fertile plains
become calving grounds and nurseries. This season attracts hordes of predators.
The game drive would end in the evening when you would return to your
accommodation and enjoy the freshly prepared dinner.
Day 4: Moving to Central Serengeti
The day would definitely be
exciting as you would moving towards central Serengeti - one of the most active
areas in terms of wildlife. We would be heading out after breakfast and travel
through the midst of never-ending grasslands. If you are lucky, you can spot the
Big Five here - rhinos, cape buffaloes, elephants, leopards and lions. There
would be provision for a picnic lunch during this long day. The evening would
end with a heavy dinner.
Day 5: Travelling towards the Ngorongoro Crater
There would be a short game
drive in the morning after a nice breakfast. After this half-day drive, we
would enjoy a picnic lunch and move out towards the Ngorongoro Crater rim. We
might be able to see mild action on the way. The day would end with a heavy
dinner and you to get rest with one of the choicest accommodations. A good
night rest will help you rejuvenate for the long day ahead.
Day 6: Heading back to Arusha
Making an early start, we
would have breakfast and descend towards the crater floor. The Ngorongoro
Crater is the largest inactive and unfilled volcanic caldera which is still
intact. The massive floor extends to a depth of about 2000 ft, covering around
260 km. You might be able to spot buffaloes, rhinos, elephants, cheetahs, lions
and hyenas. After a picnic lunch at the beautiful hippo pool, we would start
ascending out of the crater. We would reach back to Arusha at 6 in the evening.
This journey would be etched in your memory forever.
