Every year, triggered by the rains, more than a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles gather to undertake the long trek to new grazing lands. Tanzania’s first and most famous park, the Serengeti is renowned for its wealth of leopards and lions.

Day 5 – Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater
The Ngorongoro Crater is best known for its natural beauty and abundance of diverse wildlife which makes it one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations. Surrounded by Tanzania’s highlands, this UNESCO-listed crater is said to be the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera. Visitors can look forward to spotting the world-renowned Big Five and a host of other wildlife species including large herds of zebra and wildebeest.
Overnight: Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge – perched on the rim of the collapsed volcano, the Ngorongoro Crater, a world heritage site, is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world. It has the most magnificent views over the crater floor, and its position on the Eastern rim allows the most spectacular and uninterrupted views of the sunset.
Day 6 – Ngorongoro Crater
Rising early, you will experience what has been called “one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.” The Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area boast the largest unbroken, inactive, and unflooded caldera in the world. Surrounded by very steep walls, this natural amphitheater covers an area of about 100 square miles and is home to up to 25,000 larger mammals. Nearly half of those are zebra and wildebeest while other species are buffalo, gazelle, eland, hartebeest, warthog, and the elusive black rhino. Lion, hyena, cheetah, and leopard are among the predators within the crater.
