Visiting any African country /going on African Trip most so Tanzania or Kenya in a safari tip, holiday and bush adventure Africa safari with no visit to the Masai Village in Kenya/ Tanzania is an incomplete trip to travelers who love to explore discover,experience and culture exchange.

day 7: Discover Olduvai Gorge • Travel to Serengeti camp
Today we have breakfast together and then set off for Olduvai Gorge. It was here, in 1959, that Louis and Mary Leakey discovered fossil fragments, which led them to a new understanding of human evolution. They developed the theory that the Oldupai Gorge was home to Homo habilis, a race of early humans that survived other species to become the ancestors of all present-day humankind. Then visit the small museum here, which explains the Leakey’s’ methods and findings. After a picnic lunch, we travel to our camp in the Serengeti. We’ll enjoy a game-viewing drive en route and arrive at camp in time for dinner.
Day 8: Explore Serengeti National Park
Today, we explore the vast expanse of the Serengeti, where the wildlife sightings will increase steadily throughout the day. Serengeti, in fact, is the Maasai word that means “endless plain.”
The multitude and diversity of wildlife species in this huge protected area are unrivaled anywhere on the planet.
From our remote camp, we set out on morning and afternoon game-viewing drives. Our mobile tented camps are set up based on the animals seasonal migration patterns are are in place before you arrive. Each is outfitted with camp beds, complete with linens, blankets, pillows, and en suite facilities (shower and flush toilets) with hot water. You have your own verandah with wash basin and two director’s chairs. There is a dining tent with tables and chairs. Spend the night listening to the sounds of the animals in the distance.
Day 9: Optional Serengeti Sunrise Balloon Ride • Explore Serengeti National Park
An optional Serengeti Sunrise Balloon Safari may be offered today, at an additional cost. If you choose to take this excursion, plan on awakening before dawn for an early morning ascent. You will rejoin the group after breakfast for a morning game-viewing drive.
The Serengeti stretches over 5,700 square miles of plains, riverine bush, and acacia woodland, with a dominant environment of acacia grassland. Visitors who dash from lodge to lodge catch only a fleeting glimpse of the Serengeti’s rich diversity. But from the comfort of our bush camp, there is never a rush: We go where the animals are. We can return to a promising area, or range further afield.
On our afternoon game-viewing drive, our guides again help us identify the more elusive animal species, such as bat-eared fox and golden jackal, as well as rare birds like the beautiful purple grenadier and the red-cheeked cordon blue. See if you can spot the odd-looking secretary bird or the elegant crested crane.
We dine at our camp this evening.
Day 10: Enjoy Serengeti Game-viewing drives
Today, we move at a relaxed pace, which will allow us to truly focus on observing animal behavior and interactions. We don’t just stop to photograph the next animal on a list, but spend time really getting to know how different species behave. Isolated rock groups, called kopjes, provide shelter to the solitary leopard, pairs of cheetah, and prides of lion. You’ll learn the clues that tell you if one has recently hunted or is about to hunt. Their quarry is the lone gazelle or vulnerable calf spotted amongst the hundreds of thousands of hoofed herbivores: antelope, zebra, and the ever-present wildebeest.
After another rewarding day of game-viewing, we return to our camp for the evening.
Day 11: Discover Ngorongoro Highlands
Early this morning, we drive to Ngorongoro Crater. We descend to the floor of Ngorongoro for some game-viewing. The caldera of Ngorongoro marks the ancient walls of a collapsed volcano, which was probably once the size of Mount Kilimanjaro.
The circular crater is some twelve miles across, with steep walls of more than 2,000 feet. The crater’s rim is 7,500 feet above sea level, the highest altitude we reach on our trip. Because of a permanent supply of water and a precise balance of predator and prey, most of the wildlife remains here year-round. The forest areas are home to herds of bull elephant, including some large, old “tuskers.” There are several prides of lion, and many packs of hyena and jackal. If lucky, you may spot a bat-eared fox or a pair of cheetah. These predators stalk the numerous wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra. Here thrives a stable population of rhino, as well as herds of buffalo and groups of hippo. The birdlife is equally diverse, ranging from the scavenging vulture and bustard to the magnificent eagle and crested crane. Our experienced driver-guides, who are experts at locating the animals, determine our route. We’ll have a picnic lunch before we leave the crater and travel to our accommodations in Karatu.
Day 12: Discover Ngorongoro Highlands • A Day in the Life of a Iraqw village
This morning we travel to the village of Karatu, where we’ll have the opportunity to visit a local school (when in session) supported in part by donations from Grand Circle Foundation—part of the World Classroom initiative. The children will lead us on a tour of their classroom and perform traditional songs for us.
Then, we meet Karatu’s elder generation: the parents of the students we’ve met. It’s bound to be an enlightening glimpse of life in Tanzania. We return to our lodge, where you’ll have lunch and then the afternoon at leisure. We gather for a Farewell Dinner this evening.
Day 13: Overland to Arusha • Return to U.S. or begin optional trip extension
We’ll return to Arusha this morning and enjoy the opportunity to shop for local crafts before having lunch at our lodge. After time at leisure, we’ll transfer to the airport for our overnight flight to the U.S. via Amsterdam. Travelers on the post-trip extension to Zanzibar will spend one more night here in Arusha.
