It is famous for its dense wildlife population, which is most spectacular in the dry season between June and September. It is during this period that thousands of animals- wildebeest, zebra, Eland, hartebeest, buffalo, and onyx migrate from the dry Maasai steppe to the Tarangire River in search of water. Birds are also abundant here and over 550 species have been recorded.
The western Lake Burungi route, a pleasant drive of about 80 km, meanders through combretum (a genus of about 250 species of trees and shrubs native to Africa) and acacia woodlands. With luck it is possible to encounter leopard in this area. During lunch time you will be served a Hot Lunch at the picnic area then return to more game drive until noon then leave the park and drive to your Lodge located in Karatu for dinner and overnight.

Despite of Offering good viewing Game Drive all over the Year but also Seronera Valley supports a much greater diversity of resident wildlife than anywhere else in the Serengeti including elephant, giraffe, impala, water buck, hippo, topi, reed buck, buffalo and baboon. This resident prey in turn attracts the highest concentrations of large predators & Big Cat in Africa such as lion, leopard and cheetah & population of Hyenas. Later in the evening drive to your Lodge for dinner and overnight.
Today early in the morning your guide will take you to the location where you will board your Balloon with other travelers to enjoy the wonders of Serengeti from above. Although not cheap, a balloon safaris is worth the expense. Floating serenely over the treetops as the sun peaks over the horizon permits you to experience the endless Serengeti plains from an unforgettable perspective. During most flights the pilot will include sections flown at a higher altitude allowing you to soak up uninterrupted views of the Serengeti; other sections may involve low-level flying, during which there may be the opportunity to see wildlife. Highly experienced pilots can follow rivers and streams, and will glide just meters above grunting hippos or wandering giraffes.
There is tremendous wildlife viewing opportunities exist at Maasai Kopjes in Moru Area at Central Serengeti, once you are off the Balloon take your breakfast then get in your jeep for more game drive around the central Serengeti area.

On the way we will do short game drives in Serengeti while en route until you reach the Naabi entry gate to Ngorongoro, lunch time will surely reach when you are at the gate so you will have your lunch there while your guide is working on your permits to leave Serengeti and enter Ngorongoro, so you will pass by the gate from least from 2:00pm this will be advantegous to you as you will have enough time for visiting the Ngorongoro crater the next day before your permit expires on the same time you entered the park the previous day. Later in the evening drive to your lodge located at the Crater rim and start to enjoy the view of the Crater.
Today after enjoying morning crater view from your hotel at the rim, you will descend in the crater floor and enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Ngorongoro Crater floor. Called the eighth wonder of the world, the crater won’t fail to take your breath away as you stand on the rim looking down a 10-mile wide crater floor with abundant wildlife. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world covering approximately 260 sq. km’s with walls rising 600 meters from the crater floor. Before the Ngorongoro Volcano exploded and collapsed 2 million years ago the area was home of some of the tallest mountain it is home to more than 30,000 large mammals – mainly gazelle, buffalo, eland, hyenas, loins, wildebeest and warthog – and has the highest predator density in the world.
