admire the giant fig and mahogany trees of Manyara, as
we take a morning game drive through the park. This
tends to be an early start, to catch the morning
wildlife activity and maybe see an elusive leopard. In
the afternoon, we make the short transfer to Ngorongoro,
driving through the incredible highlands en route.
Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most famous safari
destinations in the world, due to its zoo like ease of
game viewing. It is a world heritage site, with more
than 20,000 animals sharing the crater floor.
Our afternoon game drive is guaranteed to give
spectacular views of elephant, wildebeest and buffalo.
This is one of the best places in the world to spot the
big five, so keep your eyes peeled for black rhino,
leopard and lion, amidst the other species.
Our final day and another
early start to make the most of it. We make a second
descent into the crater for a last game drive before
heading back to Arusha, where the tour ends.
