Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater.
Today we get up early to go to Ngorongoro Crater rim. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. We drive around the rim of the Crater and can look down and see the herds of wildebeest or buffaloes. Finally we descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals. This extinct volcano embraces 100 square miles alive with lions, leopards, rhino, and elephant. In the afternoon we ascend traveling across the Ngorongoro Highlands for enroute game drive as we head to Serengeti. Here we may see lion, cheetah or the elusive leopard along the way, as well as antelope and other gentle herbivores. Dinner and overnight at Kubu-Kubu: Full board
Day 5: Northern Serengeti National Park:
We have a full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. We can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, be in the middle of the migration, sometimes surrounded by wildebeest and zebras, which travel with the wildebeest. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals. From the top we can look out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, as well as interesting bird life, from the elegant secretary birds to the flightless ostrich. We make our way north to the Mara River Area. Dinner and overnight at Acacia Tented Camp: Full board.

We continue exploring along the river and then make our way back from the north and spend the rest of the afternoon game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje.
