Moshi - Lake Manyara National Park

You will be picked up at your hotel and will go on a three-hour drive to the East African Rift in the Lake Manyara National Park. When you get there, the roof will be opened up for the first game drive.

other inhabitants of the forest. You are certain to encounter large herds of buffalos, zebras, wildebeests, and
giraffes in the grass-covered flood plains. Also, look at the trees – you might see a lion dozing on the branches. At the marshy riversides of the Lake Manyara salt lake, you will find water birds like flamingos, pelicans and cormorants.

Day 3
Karatu - Serengeti National park

When you enter Serengeti through the Nabi Gate, you will have an impressive first impression.

Day 4
Serengeti National Park

This day begins in the heart of Serengeti, the Seronera Valley, among umbrella thorn acacias and huge fig trees.
The range of hills in the north feeds several waterholes which attract numerous impalas, antelopes, reedbucks, and baboons. Hippos splash around in the water, leopards rest on the acacias and lions take naps in the high grass. This day is completely devoted to game drives in Serengeti. You can decide how you would like to organize the day.

Serengeti National Park

Your driver will explain to you with what skill you can survive this.
