Serengeti National Park

A perfect 3-day short getaway from the town of Mwanza to two of the best Tanzania’s northern safari destinations – Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s largest park, and the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater hosting Africa’s Big Five and an abundance of other wildlife.

The tour begins from Mwanza,  Tanzania’s second-largest city, set on Lake Victoria’s shore. Serengeti National Park Ndabaki Gate is about 140 kilometers northeast of Mwanza along the Mwanza – Musoma road and gives direct access to the Western Corridor (driving time is 3 hours).

Our Serengeti game drive begins from the Serengeti Ndabaki Gate and takes us to Seronera which is central Serengeti taking about 3 hours. The western corridor of the Serengeti landscape is more wooded and it is common to see giraffe, elephants, zebra, impala, topi, ostrich, hippo, waterbuck, and many smaller animals. 

The central Serengeti is a large plain and full of tall grass. Here we find big cats such as lions, leopards, cheetah, and other animals such as hyena, wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, giraffe, eland, kongoni, impala, and other antelope. If the time is right, the wildebeest migration is incredible to see.

We have a picnic lunch in the Serengeti Park and make our way to our overnight lodge/ camp, game viewing en-route. Serengeti accommodation options include Seronera Wildlife Lodge, Mbalageti Serengeti, One Nature Hotel Nyaruswiga Serengeti and Serengeti Safari Lodge.

On day two we depart from Serengeti National Park and drive to the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater. Along the way, explore the endless plains of the Serengeti where the wildebeest migration originates. Have a brief stop at either Olduvai Gorge or Masai village (optional).

Upon arrival at the Ngorongoro Carter, we descend the steep crater walls to explore this diverse wilderness area teeming with Africa’s wildlife. Ngorongoro, part of the Serengeti ecosystem, is a massive caldera spanning an impressive 18 km in diameter with walls as high as 600m.

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to the densest mammalian population in Africa, with around 25,000 large animals. The diverse habitats found on the fertile crater floor support a variety of wildlife, including elephants, monkeys, hyenas, jackal, and herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, and other antelope species.

The Ngorongoro Crater hosts the Big Five of Africa, boasting one of the highest concentrations of lions in the world. Almost all of the wild animal species found on the savannahs of East Africa inhabit this compact crater.

We stop for a picnic lunch in the crater and after our thrilling wildlife experience, we head to our camp/ lodge perched on the crater’s edge, offering sweeping views over the crater and surrounding landscapes.

Accommodation options include Neptune Ngorongoro Luxury Lodge, Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge, andBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, and Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp.

On day 3 we begin the drive back to Mwanza or to Arusha with game viewing en route. We have a picnic lunch along the way and arrive early evening where the safari comes to a close.
