4 days serengeti & ngorongoro safari

Tour Overview

This 4 Days Serengeti & Ngorongoro Safari package will give you an exciting opportunity to visit the most beautiful parks in northern Tanzania. This includes visiting the endless plains of Serengeti National Park. It is renowned for its grassland plains in the southeast. The northern part is more hilly and rocky. To the west, valleys, rivers, and forests can be found. The land is stunning and feels like untamed wilderness. All the major safari animals occur in great numbers. You will also visit the Ngorongoro Crater which is locally known as the garden of animals where there is a big chance to spot the big five in one day.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha/Moshi to Serengeti National Park

Pick up at 6:30 AM from your hotel in Arusha and proceed towards Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.

  • Main Destination: Serengeti National Park

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

Today you will have a full-day game drive in Serengeti with chances to see predators chasing their prey and enjoy their kill. Serengeti is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequaled for its natural beauty and scientific value. You will have a game drive in the endless plains of the Serengeti with a chance to see the great herds of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles or a pride of lions lounging in the shade.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Enjoy early breakfast and meet your guide to having a last morning game drive in Serengeti National Park, later depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation area with an en-route game drive and picnic lunch. Ngorongoro is a special conservation area and not a National Park. The whole area is managed by both animals and local Maasai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife.

  • Main Destination: Ngorongoro Conservation Area
  • Meals: Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater (5 hrs game drive) & back to Arusha/Moshi

After breakfast, descend into the crater, and enjoy 5 hours game drive in the crater. 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 rhinos.

Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.
Late afternoon drive back to Arusha and drop off at your hotel.
