DAY 04 – SERENGETI NP- NGORONGORO
After breakfast, we will start with a morning game drive thru the Serengeti National Park and then head towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
As far as the eye can see, thousands upon thousands of animals herd when the migration reaches its peak; from zebras to jumping antelopes and gazelles and the most respected group of animals, the predators.
You will be able to spot lean cheetahs and shy leopards, foraging hyenas, which laugh their way through the plains and last but not least, the king himself; the lazy lion, slowly marching through the savannah and letting the “mistress” hunt for fresh meals.
We will then head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area. This area provides a variety of habitats for wild animals, the most important of them being the Seronera River, which is the main attraction for herds of game and families of predators, because it is a rich source of water to quench their thirst. For this reason, the great majority of animal species in the Serengeti National Park can be found here and thus it would be a sin not to stop and watch the animals in their natural habitat.
While game viewing, we will proceed with picnic lunches

It is for sure a landscape of sheer beauty. Another big drawing card to this picturesque park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which can require the trained eye of your guide to spot.
