The world famous Serengeti National Park covers an area of 5700 square miles, is Tanzania's oldest park, and one of the world's last great wildlife refuges. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than 2,500 lions and over one million wildebeests. Arriving at your Serengeti lodge, check-in and enjoy an included dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 7  Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch boxes for a full day of gameviewing drives on the Serengeti plains. ‘Serengeti’ is derived from a word meaning ‘the place where the land runs on forever’, and the vast national park remains true to its name. Aside from being spoiled by the variety of wildlife and bird species of the Serengeti, its landscape is stunningly beautiful, especially in the early morning and late evening light. Elephant, buffalo, lion, rhino, zebra, giraffe and others may be spotted during your Serengeti adventure. An early morning optional excursion, Balloon Safari at Dawn, prior to the included game drive, may be available (weather permitting). Meals: B, L, D

Almost every species of African plains mammal lives in the crater, including the endangered Black Rhino. This afternoon, relax and enjoy the breathtaking views from the lodge before tonight’s dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 9  Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Today’s adventure is a descent into the crater, in the game-drive vehicles, for a full day of game viewing. A photogenic paradise, an abundance of resident wildlife freely roams the plains of the crater floor while hundreds of bird species refresh in the small lakes. Unmatched for its natural variety and breathtaking beauty, there are few places on earth where such a tremendous diversity of landscapes exist in an area of this size. The crater is also of great archaeological importance with the remains of some of mankind’s earliest ancestors discovered in the area. Return to your lodge late afternoon with time to relax before dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 10  Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Tarangire National Park
After breakfast, depart for Tarangire National Park, arriving at your lodge in time for lunch. An exciting game viewing drive takes place this afternoon. Herds of elephants scratch the dry bed of the Tarangire River searching for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately Fringe- Eared Oryx and peculiar Long-Necked Gerenuk are regularly observed. Meals: B, L, D
Day 11  Tarangire National Park to Amboseli National Park
