Imagine a safari in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, tailor made for you

Superb! Amazing! Incredible! Pick any superlative you want and Ngorongoro will not disappoint you. Many people refer to it as the eight wonder of the world. Numerous wild animals live and breed here up in the highlands of North-Eastern Tanzania. 

Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a park and UNESCO World Heritage site. It contains an old volcano that has collapsed and formed a crater (caldera). The steep sides of the crater have become a natural enclosure making most of the wildlife stay there, and not migrate like in other national parks.

Footslopes company respond to every email really fast, they listened to out wishes and they organized the best safari! We had the best driver Hilary - he’s funny, he jokes a lot but also he knows a lot of stuff about animals and knows where to find them. We saw 3 huntings in 4 day safari, a big migration and a lot of baby animals, all thanks to Hilary. All camps were perfectly fine and the food was delicious.

Ngorongoro safari vibes

Example: How Can one week of safari be Organized

Day 1: Arusha - Lake Manyara National Park
After your safari briefing, leave from the hotel in Arusha Town and drive on Tarmac Road 130km to Lake Manyara National Park. The lake occupies a large portion of the park, the forest starts just when you cross the park gate along the base of the Great Rift Valley and the hot springs are located to the west of the park. The park is home to the famous tree climbing lion as well as buffalo, giraffe, hippo, baboons, flamingo, ostrich, geese and so many more. After your picnic lunch, take off for an afternoon game drive. In the late afternoon, drive to camp for dinner and your overnight stay.

Day 2: Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park
After breakfast head towards the Serengeti National Park by way of the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Leaving the highlands behind, you descend into the heart of wild Africa; into the Serengeti National Park with its endless plains rolling in the distance as far as the eye can see. Head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park. The Seronera River provides a valuable water source to this area of the park and attracts wildlife well represented of most of the Serengetis species. Arrive in time to enjoy lunch and then head out for an afternoon game drive. 

Day 3: Serengeti National Park
After breakfast enjoy an early morning game drive along the Sogore River circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River. This is a good location for spotting lion, gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah. The Visitor Center, close to the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and public campsites, is well worth a visit after this morning game drive. This nicely designed center offers some interesting wildlife displays as well as a gift shop where you can purchase information leaflets and maps of the area. In the afternoon, follow the Kopjes circuit going counterclockwise around the Maasai Kopjes. On this tour you have the chance to view more lion and some formidably large cobra.

Day 4: Serengeti Plain - Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, depart to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Stopover at Olduvai Gorge which boasts history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here that the anthropologists, Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of Nutcracker Man and Handy Man both very significant links in the chain of human evolution. Arrive at the lodge in time for lunch and then descend over 600m into the crater to view the wildlife for a half day safari tour. 

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater - Tarangire National Park
After breakfast depart for the Tarangire National Park. The park runs along the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation consists mainly of Acacia woodland, giant African Baobab trees and huge swamp areas. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for the local wildlife during the Tanzania dry season. The Tarangire National Park is home to three rare species of animals, the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx and the Ashy Starlings. After a picnic lunch, head out for an afternoon game drive.

Day 6: Tarangire National Park - Arusha
Enjoy a final game drive before breakfast. Return to camp for breakfast and then transfer back to Arusha where you will find your hotel for your overnight stay. This is there your tour will end.
