DAY 1: ARUSHA > NGORONGORO CRATER

On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you’ll be met by a Roaming Africa Tours and Safaris  representative and join your guide to start your Tanzania Classic Safari. Drive to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservancy Area. After a brief stop is made at Ol Duvai Gorge and museum, the site of the remains of prehistoric man. The Ngorongoro Crater was formed millions of years ago by the collapse of a long extinct volcano. The resulting 100 square mile depression, surrounded by a 2000 foot volcanic rim, contains water and forage necessary to support most of the familiar African wildlife. Don’t be surprised to see Maasai herders and their livestock, especially on the crater rim; the Conservation Area protects both wildlife and Maasai.

DAY 2: NGORONGORO CRATER CONSERVANCY

Spend a day on the crater floor viewing game; as many as 30,000 animals populate the crater. Lions, cheetahs, and jackals prey upon large herds of zebra, wildebeest, and antelope. The lake on the floor of the crater supports wading hippos and a myriad of birdlife. Elephants are rare within the crater, though lone, non-breeding bulls roam the region, their great tusks reaching out before them. Arrange to visit a local Maasai village and see how this proud, resourceful people live in harmony with the animals.

DAY 3: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast head for the seemingly endless plains of the Serengeti that open up across the horizon. These grasslands draw all manner of African game to graze– zebras, migrating wildebeests, antelope – and these animals in turn attract all manner of predators – lions, cheetahs, hyenas – that follow the great herds as they roam in search of water. We are pulled here as well, to witnesses the entire spectacle; the interconnection of land and wildlife, of predator and prey, to experience the circle of life, staged on the wide horizon.

DAY 4: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Except for a late summer and fall visit to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, the migrating wildebeest spend most of the year traversing the Serengeti. Depending on the time of year, the hundreds of thousands wildebeests accompanied by zebras and gazelles, follow the rain in search of fresh forage. A second day at Serengeti National Park puts most visitors on the track of the herd. Begin your day with an early morning balloon safari to see this wild world from a whole new perspective, followed by a sumptuous champagne bush breakfast. Or take an early morning game-drive before a breakfast feast at the lodge.

DAY 5: LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast we drive to Lake Manyara after lunch. Think of your guide as your own regional expert, knowledgeable in the local flora and fauna, and especially, the local roads. – Lake Manyara is an amazing wildlife sanctuary famous for its tree climbing lions and dramatic views. It is located in a depressed valley where the red and brown cliffs of the western wall of Great Rift Valley seem to rise up out of the lake itself. Springs rising from the base of the escarpment provide a welcome water supply. While the lions may be shy (visitors who spot them are lucky indeed), Manyara includes a variety of habitats, home to a variety of big game and a rich assortment of birdlife.

DAY 6: LAKE MANYARA > ARUSHA

A day that seemed a long way off has come much too soon. In a few hours you will be getting back to business, back to work, back home, reacquainting yourself with that other world that now seems so far away . . . but not just yet. After breakfast take the opportunity to say ‘kwaheri’ to East Africa as you drive to Arusha and transfer to the airport for the trip home.
