Start your adventure in northern Tanzania at the natural Ngorongoro Crater, an extinct volcano that collapsed millions of years ago, creating one of the world’s biggest calderas. As a result of this natural wonder, the fertile rich soils have attracted incredible amounts of wildlife and birds, making this an important ecosystem and surrounds a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The transition between mountainous landscapes, forests, and savannah plains is abrupt in Ngorongoro crater, ensuring lots of pleasant surprises throughout your trip. Black rhino abounds in Ngorongoro, as well as almost all of Africa’s plains mammals. Expect to see tusked elephants, fancy flamingos, and black-maned lions on this leg of your adventure.
Your next stop is in the northern Serengeti national park, the most epic turn in the Great Migration’s cycle. Together with the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, this area of the world is the superior location to witness the wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles as they race to cross the Mara river in a show of courage, bravery, and sheer instinct. This huge movement of plains mammals attracts top predators such as lions, leopards, and cheetahs, as well as wild dogs and trumpeting elephants. It’s an animal bonanza and you get a front-row seat.
Equally as important on your trip is the chance to meet the guardians of Tanzania and Kenya; the Maasai people. Expect a warm and hospitable welcome from the Maasai and get to know their distinct culture and first-hand accounts of life in the African wilderness.
Staying at Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp
Your journey begins with a flight from Arusha Airport to Lake Manyara Airstrip, on arrival you will be transferred to Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Camp, where your luxury safari tent will be waiting.

Your days will be spent on a crisp morning and late afternoon guided 4×4 trips in and around the Ngorongoro Crater, where you will get up close and personal with the distinct wildlife of the area. Experience high numbers of endangered Black rhino, plenty of big cats, and even groups of Maasai herdsmen tending to their cattle on the outer rim of the crater.
Enjoy dusky sunsets as a group, or choose to dine individually in an intimate setting of your choice around the camp. After your stay, you’ll be transferred to Lake Manyara national park airstrip, where the next leg of your venture begins.
Staying at Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp
Your arrival at Kogatende airstrip, followed by a transfer to the Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp is all it takes to get to your next destination.
Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp’s take on camping in Africa can eb described as contemporary cool. Their three set locations throughout the year are based on the natural migration path offering wildlife viewing from open plains, sweeping grasslands and rocky kopjes.
The stars of this seasonal path are wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s gazelles, and the predators that this migratory journey attracts. Cheetahs are a highlight, along with wild dog, giraffe, waterbuck and impala. Enjoy these incredible sights on guided game drives during the day and refreshing sundowners as the African sun sets.
The end of your venture sees you on a transfer to Kogatende airstrip, where you will return to Arusha airport.
It might be the conclusion of your time in Tanzania Safari, but your special memories will have you returning again and again.
