Day 5: NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA (B / L / D)
Get up early to make the most out of your day in the
Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Crater is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest
unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world, measuring about 20kms across, 600
meters deep and 300 sq kms in area. Other important features found in the NCA
are the archaeological and palaeontological site located at Olduvai Gorge and
the early human foot-prints that were discovered at Alaitole in Ngarusi area.
Because of these particular features and the harmonious co-existence between
wildlife and people that has existed for many years, Ngorongoro Conservation
Area was accorded the status of a World Heritage Site. The high walls of the
crater itself, serve as a natural enclosure for an abundance of wildlife. There
is a large resident population of varied game with the very real chance of you
being able to see the "Big Five”. Among the notable birds are Lammergeyer,
Vereaux's Eagle and Egyptian Vulture, which make their home in the highest of
the crater wall; the beautiful Rosy-breasted Longclaw, which appears on the
plains after rains; and flocks of Lesser and Greater Flamingos which are
spasmodic visitors to the crater lakes. Return to your lodge before dusk, and in
time to freshen up before dinner.
Day 6: NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA - SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK (B / L / D)
Today the highlight of the safari begins as you check out of

hosted at a camp located in the Central Serengeti. On the way, you will have a
chance to visit one of the world's most famous prehistoric sites, Olduvai Gorge,
for a tour and lecture. Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest and most
popular national park. Its name means 'endless plain' in the Masai language. It
is from here that massive concentrations of wildebeest, zebras and other animals
commence the annual Great Migration in search of pastures new, providing one of
the greatest natural spectacles to be found anywhere in the world. You can watch
golden-maned lions stalking the migrating herds, spot leopards at rest in trees

illuminate the land.
