These 3 days from Mwanza to Ngorongoro tour through Serengeti will take you to the world’s most popular destinations. Ngorongoro Crater is often called Africa’s Eden and the 8th Natural Wonder of the World. Serengeti is well known for the wildebeest migration which can’t be seen anywhere else in the world.
Day 1 Mwanza – Serengeti
Drive on a tarmac road from Mwanza to Serengeti though Ndabaka gate. Explore the western corridor zone, observing masses of residents in their natural Habitats. Get a chance to pass at Grumeti River and Retima hippo pool where hippos and giant Nile crocodiles can be found in abundance. Travel further to Seronera area where animals can be seen in abundance including leopard, prides of lion, packs of spotted hyenas, cheetahs, buffaloes, topi, hartebeest, wildebeest, waterbucks, elands, zebras, gazelles, warthogs, and numerous species of birds. More than 100 species can be observed in a day.
Day 2: Serengeti -Ngorongoro
We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive in Ngorongoro we have a chance to glimpse something of the Masai way of life. After stopping at the entrance gate, where there is a chance to learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the Crater itself, and from here we can look down and see the herd of wildebeest or buffalos. This truly world-class attraction is also known as the ’8th Wonder of the World’. Our dinner and overnight stay is at Ngorongoro Simba Campsite
Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater Tour-Mwanza
After breakfast, finally we descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. In afternoon we travel just outside of Ngorongoro crater and drive back to Mwanza
