Serengeti and Ngorongoro Excursion, Tanzania
Today we set off on an optional three night camping adventure in the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater where these regions are said to contain one of the greatest concentrations of animals in Africa. You will spend two nights in the Serengeti and one night on the edge of the Crater, whilst enjoying game viewing from the comfort of an open-topped 4X4 safari vehicle in order to overcome any obstacles we come across whilst driving through the Park’s gravelly and narrow roads. Be sure to take with you a small day pack with a change of clothing, binoculars, cameras, warm clothes (for the cold rim of the crater), plenty of insect repellent, a few dollars for tips and curios, provisions and, of course, your sleeping bag and pillow.
On Day 3 the entire day will be spent game driving through the Serengeti as we track animals through the savannah.
Day 4 we head to the famous Ngorongoro Crater where our trucks will drive down to the very bottom of the crater where there is plenty of game viewing.
For those who opt not to partake in this excursion, simply devote your time to relaxing and soaking in the sun as well as the vibrant local cultures surrounding you.
