Serengeti national park covers an area of ​​approximately 30,000 Sq.km in the north of Tanzania, towards the southern border of Kenya, though 80% of it is situated in Tanzania. During the game drive, you may be lucky to spot great migration, a movement that involves about 1.5 million herbivores and thousands of predators fleeing drought from Serengeti to search of fresh water and grazing in Maasai Mara national park. Due to the fact that vast grasslands cover much of the park (more than a third), there are numerous savannah game which call it home throughout the year.

Wake up early in the morning, for breakfast before making your way through to the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. This historical crater is the world’s largest intact crater, made up of 20km diameter and 600m high and estimated to be host to 30,000 large mammals permanently dwelling in the crater. Ngorongoro crater features a Salt Lake at its center, and so animals find it a favorable place to stay and feed. Thus, this crater has become one of the most densely populated wildlife areas in the world!

Other than profusion of animals, the Ngorongoro is filled with rich culture and communities, including the Masai and Hadza people who live together in harmony with the wildlife that all call this place home. From the rim, look out over the pleasant crater and all its wonderful inhabitants.

Day 7: Transfer to Arusha & departure
