Scavengers Adventures driver will meet you at the airport (or your shuttle) and take you and your belongings to your accommodation for the evening. Our staff will meet you at hotel and together we will have short briefing to finalize details and answer any additional questions regarding your upcoming safari.
On this day, you can choose to go to Tarangire National Park or Lake Manyara National Park. Depending on the time of year, each of these parks offers a different safari experience. Your guide can advise you as to which is best to visit during your safari.
We’ll take an early breakfast, as we’ve got a big day of exploration and adventure ahead of us! We’ll begin the day with the scenic drive towards the Serengeti. Along the way we’ll pass through the mist-shrouded rainforests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you might be lucky enough to glimpse cape buffalo, baboons, or even elephants and leopards in the dense undergrowth.
Our first stop of the day will be at the Oldupai Gorge (also known as the Cradle of Mankind). Here you can see some of the oldest fossil evidence in the world of human habitation, visit the Oldupai Gorge Museum to learn more about the human journey, and take in the stunning views of this stark gorge country.
We’ll then continue on to one of the famous Masai bomas, where you’ll have the opportunity to witness traditional Masai dance, visit an authentic Masai village, and even do a little souvenir shopping at the local market.
After lunch at the registration area of the Serengeti National Park, you’ll enjoy an afternoon game drive in this remarkable park. See herds of majestic elephants, prides of lions sunning themselves on the rocks, and even spy a shy cheetah or leopard.
After seeing a Serengeti sunset, you’ll retire to your accommodations for dinner.
You’ll wake before the dawn for an unforgettable sunrise game drive. Accompanied by the melodic singing of the birds and the fierce colors of the sun as they paint the savannah, you’ll go in search of leopards and lions hunting their morning meal. You’ll also have the chance to see hippopotamuses returning to their watery homes after a night of foraging on dry land.
After returning to your lodge for a late breakfast, you’ll then have the day to explore the Serengeti. Tracking the movements of the Wildebeest Migration, you’ll have the chance to witness the majesty and sheer scale of this massive movement of animals across the incomparable beauty of the Serengeti. Enjoy a picnic lunch while on the road chasing the Big Five as well as some of Africa’s other iconic animals.
After breakfast, we will start with a morning game drive and then head towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The highlight of the expedition will be a game drive in the Serengeti. As far as the eye can see, thousands upon thousands of animals in herds, wildebeests and zebras migrating together, tall and graceful giraffes, jumping antelopes and gazelles, the powerful African elephant and the most respected group of animals: the predators.
You will be able to spot lean cheetahs and shy leopards, foraging hyenas, and last but not least, the king himself; the lion. While game viewing, we will proceed with picnic lunches. Dinner and overnight on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater according to the standard and the type of accommodation requested from our options.
After breakfast, we’ll proceed to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area for a half day game drive through what many people consider to be the 8th Wonder of the World. Ngorongoro Crater, actually a collapsed caldera, is one of the most breathtaking safari destinations in the world – offering you the opportunity to see the enigmatic black rhinoceros as well as more than 120 species of mammal against the sweeping backdrop of sheer crater walls and vast soda lakes.
From the comfort of your open-top vehicle, you’ll wind your way down into the crater through the dense rain forest. You’ll stop along the way at the viewpoint for a stunning panorama of the crater with its cloud dappled plains and the herds of wildebeest and zebras that look more like ants from your lofty vantage point.
Once on the crater floor, you’ll enjoy a game drive that will take you past pools of wallowing hippos, great salt lakes that are home to brightly colored flamingo’s and other water birds, past prides of lions, through dense stands of undergrowth that hide elephants and antelopes, and across the open plains with their herds of zebras, wildebeest, cape buffalo, and more.
Another highlight of your day will undoubtedly be a picnic lunch by the famous hippo pool, where you’ll dine just meters from the great wallowing herbivores in this serene picnic spot.
After the thrills and excitement of the day, we will drive back to your Hotel in Moshi
