Safari Highlights

After an early breakfast, we will drive to Lake Manyara National Park where we enjoy our first game drive. The elephants of Lake Manyara were immortalised by Ian Douglas-Hamilton in his book Amongst the Elephants, and the park still has a reputation for having some pretty large tuskers. It is also known for its tree-climbing lions and excellent birding, with around 400 species recorded in the area.

After our morning game viewing, we enjoy a picnic lunch. Later on, we will continue on our journey through the Rift Valley, enjoying breathtaking views as we climb the escarpment that leads to the Ngorongoro Highlands and our lodge near the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.

Located 180km west of Arusha in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the Ngorongoro Crater holds the record as the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera, and is home to some of the most dense populations of big game in Africa.
