You will go for an early morning game drive in Ngorongoro Crater.

Dinner and Overnight: Neptune Ngorongoro – FB

Day 7 & 8: Northern Serengeti
Enjoy a couple of days doing game drives in Northern Serengeti where the herds are expected to be seen during this time of year. The movement of almost two million wild animals is the driving force of the ecology of most of the Serengeti eco-system. Great wildlife viewing is guaranteed because the young animals make easy prey. You have the option to go for an early morning hot air balloon ride over the Mara River, for a most unforgettable experience. (Optional activity: US$600 per person, advance booking required)

Dinner and overnight: Aurari Camp – FB

Day 9: Northern Serengeti to Arusha to Kilimanjaro Airport

If you would like to extend your trip to Zanzibar, we can also assist.
