Day 4: Drive to Serengeti via Ngorongoro A vast rolling plain whose sparse vegetation allows for some of the best wildlife viewing in the world. The annual migration of wildebeest and zebra is one of the park’s greatest attractions, but throughout the year the Serengeti is excellent for seeing predators such as lion, leopard and cheetah, along with elephant, giraffe, hyena, hippo, rhino, and many varieties of antelopes and birds.

Day 5-6: Follow the migration paths in Serengeti ecosystem We will spend the day following the great migration of about 1.5 million Wildebeests and 500,000 Zebras migrating through the Serengeti Ecosystem. Watch as these creatures brave the dangers of their lurking predators- packs of lion, cheetah and other carnivores waiting for the right moment to strike. Crocodiles in Serengeti river do no mercy as the herds cross the river. Thousands are swept by the arrogant waters and the scenes are amazing. Mara/Ndutu Tented Camp Mid-range Tented Camp

Day 7: Tracing the Big five in Serengeti The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than three million large mammals. The park is one that can never disappoint. One is spoilt by the variety of bird and wildlife species in this game reserve. Kati Kati Tented Camp Mid-range Tented Camp

Day 8: Ngorongoro Conservation Area You will enjoy yet another morning game drive in Serengeti. Drive back to the camp for breakfast and check out before starting your journey to Ngorongoro. We arrive at our crater rim lodge to a warm welcome, check in and then lunch. This afternoon just relax and enjoy the breathtaking and spectacular views of the Ngorongoro scenery, the largest unbroken caldera in the world. Dinner and overnight at your game lodge. Note: a warm jacket or cardigan is highly recommended. Ngorongoro Farm House Mid-range Lodge

Day 9: A day in the ‘African Garden of Eden’, Ngorongoro Descend into the crater (600m) for an in-depth exploration of this distinctive Eco-system. Enjoy abundant wildlife viewing set against the impressive backdrop of the Ngorongoro Crater, the heart of the conservation area. These drives provide one of the best opportunities in Africa to view the rare black rhino, which tends to spend their time on the crater floor. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles; its magical setting and abundant wildlife never fail to enthrall visitors. For lunch, enjoy a picnic next to the hippo pools on the crater floor. Continue with the game drive throughout the various ecosystems of the crater, including woodland filled with zebra and baboon, plains that support scavenging hyena and a lake that is tinted pink with greater and lesser flamingos. Other game that you can see includes leopard, cheetah, hyena, other members of the antelope family, and small mammals. In the afternoon ascend and drive back to your lodge for overnight rest.

I chose Leadwood Expeditions based on reviews and was not disappointed. From start to finish, the company provided everything we asked for and more. Showed up on time in a Landcruiser. Vehicle was in great condition and even had outlets. Stephen, our driver/guide, was wonderful, knowledgeable, and full of answers to all our many, many questions. Including those from our 12 and 15 years old daughters.
