    Serengeti National Park covers 1.5 million hectares of savannah, the annual migration of two million wildebeest plus hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras – followed by their predators on their annual migration in search of pasture and water – is one of the most impressive natural spectacles in the world.

    Day 5: Transfer and game drive to the Northern Serengeti

    After breakfast, depart for the Northern Serengeti for a full day game drive to observe the great migration. The river crossings in Kogatende start in August when the big herd settles in the area. Between August and October, game viewing is at its best as river crossings are pretty much guaranteed every day. There is no distinct movement as the herds tend to cross the river back and forth to follow the rains and subsequent fresh grass.

    Day 6: Full day North Serengeti (KogaTende).

    After breakfast, embark on a full day game drive to observe the great migration in the Mara area. The number of resident wildlife is exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area. The main feature is the Mara River. There is of course no guarantee to observe the crossing; it is purely a matter of luck. But here at the Mara River there are great chances to see the herds crossing the Mara River to the north in one day and again to the south a few days later. A herd may be seen next to the river and decide to cross a few days later. This area is a stunning region of kopjes, forests, riverine vegetation and open plains, similar to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. After an extensive game drive, return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.

    Day 7: Transfer to Ngorongoro Crater

    This day is also dedicated to transfers, but as you will be driving from the North
    Serengeti to the South Serengeti, you can naturally expect many encounters with a variety of wildlife. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its great importance. The sanctuary is a paradise for wildlife as it is home to a variety of animals including wildebeest, zebra, rhino, buffalo, lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah, caracal, African wild dog, gazelle, wild cat and more than 500 species of birds. .
    Accommodation: Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge

    Day 8: Full day game drive and cultural visits.

    This day will be another highlight of the entire safari as we will drive to the Ngorongoro Crater. It was established in 1959 as a multiple land use area where wildlife coexists with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists who practice traditional pastoralism. It includes the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the largest caldera in the world. Just in case you are a nature, landscape or wildlife lover and you visit Tanzania and do not reach Ngorongoro Crater, consider your safari incomplete, because no place in this world is as beautiful as Ngorongoro.
