Special Great Migration Itinerary

DAY 1

Arrival and departure for Karatu

Arrival and departure for Karatu

Upon your arrival at the Kilimanjaro (or Arusha) Airport, our guide will welcome and take you to the lodge in Karatu, the ideal area to begin your visit to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Dinner and overnight accommodation at the lodge

DAY 2

Cratere di Ngorongoro

Cratere di Ngorongoro

After breakfast, we will visit the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, one of the most famous safari destinations in the world, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978 and an International Biosphere Reserve in 1981. The Ngorongoro crater (permits for game drives inside the crater are valid for up to 6 hours) is the centre of attraction. Located at 2,200 meters above sea level, it is the largest uninterrupted caldera in the world, and one of Africa’s natural wonders, hosting about 30000 large mammals all year round, such as buffaloes, lions, elephants, cheetahs and rhinoceroses, as well as several bird species: flamingos, eagles, buzzards, ostriches and hawks. At the centre of the crater is Lake Magadi with its shallow waters which tends to almost dry up during the dry season, and is the best spot for watching flocks of flamingos, and crowned cranes, as well as several herbivores, especially a large number of wildebeests and zebras who drink here, attracting lions and hyenas.

After visiting the Crater, we will head towards Nolutu.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the Campo Tendato

DAY 3

Gnu Ndutu Safari Avventura

Ndutu Plains

We will begin our visit to the green plains of Ndutu after breakfast, where the herbivores give birth to their young and stay there until they are weaned. This enchanting place, which during the dry season is an arid and semi-desert, is transformed with the coming of the rains, becoming lush and very fertile, with abundant short grasses, rich in minerals that are extremely important during breastfeeding.

This area, which has two salt lakes with marshlands around them, is home to a good number of animals all year round. However, the number of carnivores and predators increase exponentially during the migration period, intensifying the presence of lions, vultures, hyenas, cheetahs, and jackals.

The absence of trees and bushes means that it is very easy to spot attacks by predators.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the Campo Tendato in Ndutu

DAY 4

From Ndutu to Serengeti Park

From Ndutu to Serengeti Park

Dopo la colazione, continueremo la visita di Ndutu, circondati dalla natura incontaminata e da un’enorme quantità di animali.

Al termine, ci dirigeremo verso Nord, fino ad arrivare al Serengeti Centrale, nella zona di Seronera.

Il Parco Nazionale del Serengeti è lo straordinario luogo dove la leggenda incontra la realtà, rappresenta il parco più antico e vasto della Tanzania, ricoprendo un’area di 14.763 kmq, tanto che il nome, di origine Masai, Siringet, significa “Pianura senza confini”.

Pranzo al sacco nel parco.

Cena e pernottamento presso il Campo tendato a Seronera.

DAY 5

Serengeti Park

Serengeti Park

We will be visiting the Serengeti Park after breakfast. Endless plains await you in this park that is home to a great variety of animals, which, in this particularly fertile season, do not congregate around the rivers, but are scattered throughout the area. You will encounter herbivores, prides of lions and other predators such as hyenas, cheetahs, and jackals; as well as leopards that often bask in the branches of the umbrella acacias that grow here.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the Campo Tendato in Seronera

DAY 6

The fauna of Serengeti Park Safari Avventura

The fauna of Serengeti Park

After breakfast, we will continue our discovery of the extraordinary Serengeti National Park, moving towards the centre of the Park. The boundless prairies are occasionally interrupted by bizarre granite formations – kopjes, among whose cracks often form small pools of rainwater, which attract many small animals, but also large predators such as lions who love to lay on them or hide in ambush, awaiting a possible prey. The tour will then head towards the southern part of the Serengeti, where you will again encounter the migration, and then continue towards the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, until we reach Karatu.

Packed lunch will be served at the park.

Dinner and overnight accommodation at the lodge in Karatu

DAY 7

Arusha

One last Trip and departure for the Airport

The last day of the safari will also be well organized. After breakfast, if possible, we will visit the city and take a trip to the Arusha market to do some shopping and to buy souvenirs for friends and family. After that we will accompany you to the airport, to return to Italy with a heart full of memorable experiences.
