DAY 3: Tarangire Sopa Lodge – Mto Wa Mbu Village

After breakfast, check out of the lodge and drive to Mto wa mbu. Mto wa Mbu ward has three cultural tourist operations: Migombani, Losirwa, and Barabarani.

  • Rice and Banana Plantations

This tour lasts from 1 and 4 hours. View the creative farming practices of Mto wa Mbu locals and learn about the irrigation system to support local crops including the 32 varieties of bananas. During this tour, you will learn about the preparation of the farm “Shamba,” weeding, and harvesting.

  • Local coffee plantation tour

You will go to a locally owned and operated coffee plantation to learn more about the process of getting coffee beans from the tree to your cup. Try your hand at grinding and roasting beans by hand, then reward yourself with some great, fresh coffee.

  • Masai Village or Boma

A visit to a Masai Boma is a unique experience. When you arrive in the village, excited children and adults greet you with song and dance; at times, one of the dancers will gracefully jump up and down. The jumps are several feet in the air! You will be welcomed to participate in the dance as well. You will then be invited into one of the village huts (called Manyatta), which are made of cow dung and clay plastered over stick framework.

This is quite practical because the Masai have cattle herds, and the dung is always plentiful and free. One of your hosts will offer you an insight into Masai life; some of them may not speak English, but our guides will translate for you and the elders so that you may share stories.

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Oldeani Lodge   Meal: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

DAY 4: Ngorongoro Oldeani Mountain Lodge – Ngorongoro Crater

Lake Makat is a soda lake that you will explore today as you take a game drive on the crater floor. When visiting Ngorongoro Crater, you will encounter the famous Big Five – buffalos, black rhinoceroses, elephants, lions, and leopards – as well as many other wildlife. Cheetahs, zebras, hippos, serval cats, hyenas, and wildebeests are also found here.

DAY 5 & 6: Ngorongoro Serena Lodge – Central Serengeti National Park

Leaving the lodge after breakfast for a Serengeti National Park safari. Immense is an underestimate when it comes to Serengeti National Park’s size (12,000 sq. mi). In addition to being Tanzania’s oldest national park, it has the world’s most complex ecosystem. The flora and fauna are nearly identical to what they were hundreds of years ago.

Serengeti National Park has a lot to offer and will keep you busy for a long time. Among the top sites to see lions, leopards, cheetah and hyenas, Seronera Valley is one of the best spots to see these enormous carnivores. Elephants, zebras, giraffes, wildebeest, and many other animals can also be seen on any given day in the Park.

Game drives in the Serengeti’s Northern Serengeti will take place en route to Kogatende after breakfast.

It is possible to see the herds near the Mara River. Intense crocodile hunting and fast-moving rivers make this river crossing extremely hazardous for the herds. Behold the epic battle between predator and prey, where life and death are on the line. They are breathtaking, impressive, and dramatic.

Accommodation: Mara under Canvas Meal: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

DAY 8: Full Day in Northern Serengeti (Kogatende)

After breakfast, check out of camp and prepare for a full-day game drive around Mara River. Witness the epic battle between predator and prey, where life and death are on the line.
