Trip Introduction
The Rift Valley – just the sound of the name is magical. Our five days takes in Lake Manyara – a magical wildlife destination – the Serengeti (of course!) and spectacular Ngorongoro Crater. This really is the very best of Tanzania’s Northern Circuit. Accommodation during this ‘Basic’ category trip is at the lodge in Arusha and public campsites in Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro. A truly magnificent safari adventure, enjoyed in your own private vehicle; just five days, but a lifetime of memories.

Trip Highlights

  • The ‘endless plains’ of Serengeti, a marvellous landscape and surely the world’s most celebrated national park with an incomparable range of predators and their intended prey: see leopard and cheetah, antelope and zebra
  • Ngorongoro’s awe-inspiring crater, a collapsed volcano some 12 miles across and 7,500 feet above sea-level, with its incredible year-round display of wildlife. A truly inspiring setting which plays host to lion and elephant, rhino, buffalo, hippo as well as many other species.
  • Mto wa Mbu village visit, a chance to get up close and personal with the local people and learn about their everyday lives -fascinating.
  • Lake Manyara’s incredible array of birdlife, making this a special place for keen ornithologists. Flamingoes and pelicans are amongst those providing the entertainment.
