Fly to the Northern Serengeti and embark on afternoon game drives.
Spend a full day in the Northern Serengeti and get ready to experience one of the most amazing shows on earth, the Mara River crossing. Then, embark on afternoon game drives.
The Mara River, which flows through the Northern Serengeti before entering Lake Victoria in the West, is without a doubt, the centerpiece of the Kogatende region of the Serengeti. This area explodes with activity during The Great Migration, when thousands upon thousands of wildebeests and zebras battle oppressive currents and Nile crocodiles to reach the opposite side of the Mara River. This event is best observed from late July until early September.
Drive out to Serengeti National Park. Then, spend a full day exploring the world’s most famous savanna.
Drive out to the Ngorongoro Crater. Descend 600m into the crater and experience the largest above-water intact caldera (collapsed volcano) on the planet! Explore the crater floor on game drives and guided bushwalks.
Drive to Arusha. Transfer to airport.
