In places, the vegetation is quite dense, including elephant grass, acacia woodlands and lush groundwater forest. The Park is well known for its elephant families, which can often be seen congregating by the river. You may also see giraffe, bushbuck and hartebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators, including lions and leopards. There are more breeding species of birds found in Tarangire National Park than anywhere else on the planet!

DAY 6: Ngorongoro crater

After early breakfast, you will descend down the crater which is almost 600m deep.

The Crater was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself two to three million years ago. It is famous for both its geological delights and for being a natural reserve which is home to some of the densest large mammal populations in the whole of the African continent. The drive down the into the Crater is an adventure in itself and when you reach the Crater floor, you quickly find yourself amongst large numbers of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and more than 500 bird species. The Crater provides you with the best chance of seeing the endangered black rhino, which can sometimes be spotted in the open grasslands.

After Lunch and an extensive game drive inside the crater, we head for our luxury lodge for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay.

DAY 7-9: Ngorongoro to Manyara Airstrip then fly to Grumeti (Western Serengeti)

Early morning after breakfast, we will checkout at The Lodge on the crater rim and drive to Manyara Airstrip to catch your flight at 0835hrs to Grumeti Airstrip (arrival at 1030hrs), Upon arrival, you will be met by your driver guide who will brief you and proceed with game viewing on the western Serengeti following the great migration of wildebeests and Zebras.

Around the end of April, May and June, a vast army of wildebeests along with its partners, zebras, elands and gazelles mill around the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, south of the Grumeti River. Harassed behind by lions, cheetahs, leopards and hyenas and ahead by giant Nile crocodiles, many hundreds perish as some hazard the river crossing while others detour it. But the beauty of the landscape, stretching without end beneath an infinite sky on a Serengeti West Safari, changes something within the watcher, who becomes more aware of the place of humankind within the drama of the animal world.

After Lunch and an extensive game drive, we head for our luxury partner tented camp for dinner and overnight.

You will spend a total of 3 nights on the western corridor.
