Days 2-3 Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp Guest Fire Pit

Come Day 2, you’ll head to Arusha Airport via private road transfer and fly to Lake Manyara Airport, before a shared road transfer to Lemala Ngorongoro. The camp has a lovely location in a grove of acacia trees on the eastern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, close to the descent road. Get up early here and you’ll be rewarded with quiet access into the Crater itself. The camp consists of 12 canvas tents, all positioned to one side of the main mess area, which has a veranda where you can marvel at the views. While you’re here, you’ll enjoy a game drive in the famous Crater, which is home to all Big Five, numerous smaller mammals, and ample birdlife. Guided walks up on the highlands around the Crater rim are available too. And you can enjoy interactions with the local Maasai, for a little culture on safari!

Board basis and activities:
All-inclusive accommodation, featuring all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, a laundry service, and the following activities on a shared basis: scheduled full morning game drives into the Crater, short highland walks (seasonal), and sundowners.

On the fourth day of your holiday, you’ll have a game drive transfer to the Serengeti, where you will stay at Lemala Ndutu. A mobile camp that changes location as it follows the wildebeest and zebra migration, it is ideal for catching the beginning of the calving season in January and February. Predators – especially big cats – also follow the migration so if staying here, you will be in for a real treat. Each of the nine tents are perched on the edge of a permanent marsh and acts as the ultimate amphitheatre to catch the drama that accompanies the migration. Day activities include standard game drives, full-day game drives, walking safaris and balloon safaris (can be arranged at an extra cost).

Board basis and activities:
All-inclusive accommodation, featuring all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, standard game drives from a shared open-sided 4×4 game drive vehicle, and a laundry service.

On day 8 and at the end of your trip, you’ll fly to Kilimanjaro airport and connect onto your flight/s home.
