* Please note that 18% of Tanzanian VAT will be added to these rates in the next booking step!
Due to the big demand now also available as a shared safari: 3 days SHARED SAFARI including SERENGETI and NGORONGORO CRATER.
You can either start this safari early in the morning from Moshi or Arusha (5am from Moshi or 6:30am from Arusha) with a transfer to Mto wa Mbu, where you would join a safari group that is doing the 4 days shared safari itinerary (you would basically skip the first day of the 4 days shared safari option), or, at a small extra, you can also have your transfer to Mto wa Mbu the evening before, get to know the safari group at the campsite, stay overnight doing camping, and then start your safari after breakfast from around 8am.
See accommodation options for this safari.
If you have not booked your transfer from Moshi to Mto wa Mbu + overnight doing camping in Mto wa Mbu for the night before the actual start of the safari (please see details above), you will be picked up from your accommodation in Moshi or Arusha early in the morning (approx. 5am from Moshi or 6:30am from Arusha).
In Mto wa Mbu you will meet the other members of your safari group. After breakfast, you will depart for Serengeti National park via Ngorongoro conservation area. You will drive through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you will enjoy the game drive en route. Arrival at Serengeti National Park is in the early afternoon - and you will do a game drive until sunset. Serengeti offers one of the most amazing game viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo and wildebeests, groups of elephant and giraffes, eland, impala and Grant’s gazelle, Lions, leopards and others, can be seen very often. Dinner at the accommodation of your category of choice. (Please note that in case you book the SIMPLE LODGE option, this night is spent CAMPING as there is no accommodation of simple lodge standard in the area. This is already reflected in the SIMPLE LODGE accommodation plan rate).
You will get up early in the morning for a game drive to witness the spectacular sunrise of the Serengeti. The game drive will continue until the early afternoon. Either return to your accommodation for a hot lunch or you will take a lunch pack with you. Then drive back through the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with game drive en route, observing more lions, leopards, cheetahs, zebras, wildebeest, gazelles and hyenas. Accommodation at your category of choice in the Ngorongoro Area.
After breakfast, with picnic lunch packed, we depart for a game drive to the Ngorongoro crater. A real life Eden, you will be amazed by its abundant wildlife that get very close to the vehicle. The crater floor supports more than 25,000 large mammals including the remaining Black Rhinos, Zebras, Gnus, Gazelles, Buffalos, Lions, Hippos, Elephants, Elands, Hyenas and a number of aquatic birds. We explore the crater until the late afternoon and then drive back to Moshi/Arusha.
