Arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport, Tanzania. After clearing customs, look for your Zara Et holidays
representative. He will be waiting for you, holding a sign with your name on it. Your driver will
transport you to High view Hotel in Karatu – Arusha
This morning drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Set against the steep escarpment of the Rift
Valley, you’ll find Lake Manyara National Park with its evergreen groundwater forest and variety of
ecosystems including acacia woodland, grassy plains, a swampy fan delta, and – of course – the
expansive lake. This diversity attracts a wide variety of mammal, bird, and wildlife species. Manyara
is also home to rare tree climbing lions. The park offers excellent game viewing with buffalo, impala,
giraffe, bushbuck, waterbuck, hippos, and lots of elephant’s roam near the lake. Also look out for
blue monkeys, vervet monkeys, and the very active Olive baboon troops.
Head out after breakfast for the drive to Serengeti National Park. The word “Serengeti” is derived
from the Maasai language, meaning “endless plain.” En-route to the Serengeti you can opt to visit as
Masaai Village, a perfect place to explore Maasai culture and even participate in some tribal activities
Or visit Olduvai Gorge, known as the Cradle of Humanity; the Museum is a testament to the long
journey that humanity has made from its humble roots in East Africa to its current state as the
dominant species on earth. Enjoy a game drive en-route to your camp
Relax with full days in the Serengeti with game drives – unequalled for its beauty and home to the
Great Wildebeest Migration. The huge herds of plains game such as wildebeest, zebra and antelope
dominate the park while the attendant predators such as lion and cheetah are to be found amongst the
many kopjes scattered across the plain. Its landscape varies from open grass plains in the south,
savanna with scattered acacia trees in the center, hilly, wooded grassland in the north, to extensive
woodland and black clay plains to the west
This morning, you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater floor for game driving and exploration.
The crater is 600m deep, 16km across and 265 sq km in area. Enjoy the spectacular scenery and game
viewing, in what has been described as the eighth wonder of the world. Many of Tanzania’s last
remaining black rhino can be seen grazing on the open grassland of the crater floor, surrounded by
some of the 20,000 large animals that occupy the crater, including lion, cheetah, eland, zebra and
gazelle. Flamingo, among other bird species, can often be seen feeding at Makat Soda Lake as well.
Afternoon dive to your lodge for your overnight stay. O
Enjoy a morning at leisure before your transfer to Kilimanjaro airport for your flight home.
