5 Days – Joy Safari

Tour Information:

The tour will take you through the vast plains of open woodlands and ultimately wildlife. As enduring as the game-viewing is the liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sun burnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth. Yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. And there are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees and acacia woodland stained orange by dust.

Tour Itinerary:

 Day 1: Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater.

After early breakfast check out form your hotel, with packed lunch drive to Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area for a full day game drive. Ngorongoro crater is located west of the Great Rift Valley which runs from the Red Sea to Lake Nyasa in southern Tanzania. It is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, the second largest extinct crater in the world, and today shelters the most beautiful wildlife haven left on earth with a spectacular concentration of wildlife and stunning views.

The Crater is oval in shape, 300Sq. Km in area, 610m deep. There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself. This is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhino in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. All of the big five are seen – elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Other game includes: cheetah, hyena, zebra, warthog, impala, hartebeest, eland and lots of other members of the antelope family and smaller mammals of sorts. Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro
