After breakfast at the lodge, you will meet your guide for a short briefing then drive south of Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park. You have the option to visit the culturally-diverse village of Mto wa Mbu set on the banks of the river of the same name, for a first-hand look at tribal life in the African bush.
We then check into Lake Manyara National Park where a picnic lunch is served at the Msasa picnic site, offering a fabulous view of the lake. You will have an afternoon wildlife viewing in the park, with its diverse flora and fauna, including some 350 bird species.
The park Preserve a variety of animals like the gazelle, impala, buffalo, wildebeest, hyena, baboon, giraffe, hippo, and the famous tree-climbing lions. Late afternoon we head off to the Ngorongoro highlands.
After an early breakfast, we take our picnic lunch aboard the vehicles and descend into the crater to explore this distinctive eco-system. Enjoy abundant wildlife viewing set against the impressive backdrop of the Ngorongoro Crater, the heart of this conservation area. These drives provide one of the best opportunities in Africa to view black rhino, which tends to spend their time on the crater floor.
Another big draw is the dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, and the small cats like the rare caracal, as well as the African wild cat which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. After a picnic lunch, another wildlife viewing drive will take you to visit the hippo pool near the Mandusi Swamp, Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner which is one of the main features of the crater, the lerai forest as well as other parts of the crater.
