Arusha - Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti. This morning visit the Meserani Reptile Museum and Masai Cultural Museum, see the iconic Tinga Tinga paintings in a local gallery by the campsite. Or perhaps enjoy free time for lunch at our campsite against the backdrop of Mount Meru before we meet our Tanzanian guides and travel via the Masai town of Mtu Wa Mbu (Mosquito River) that lies adjacent to the Lake Manyara National Park and then up the Rift Valley Escarpment to the higher lying village of Karatu, our base for the night. The following morning, we depart early for the Ngorongoro Conservation area and head into the wildlife rich Ngorongoro Crater. This World Heritage Site boasts some of the best game viewing in Africa – including the elusive Black Rhino. Following our game drive in the Crater rim, we head down past the “Cradle of Mankind” on our way to the Serengeti National Park, crossing vast plains as we drive through the southern and central areas of the park. Tonight we camp in the bushveld surrounded by the sounds of the African wilderness. In the morning, we head off for another game drive and explore the landscape in search of the resident game. With some luck, we may see some of Africa’s ‘Big 5’. We return to Arusha on day 5.
