At arrival we will have lunch first. Lake Manyara National Park is one of the small parks in Tanzania. The beautiful scenery, the varied flora and fauna make the exciting Lake Manyara an obvious place to spend a day before we travel to Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
The park is known for its lions with a habit of climbing trees. There is a good chance of spotting elephants (Lake Manyara had the highest concentration in Africa, but due to illegal poaching  the number of animals has decreased.) Alternatively you will find hippos, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, gazelles and a lot of baboons .
We camp tonight at Lake Manyara Kiko Ngoni campsite or if there are hotel rooms available, in the hotel room.

The many lawns in Serengeti create a paradise for predators. Most are hyenas, but the National Park is best known for its lions. Here you should probably be able to capture a pair of lions on camera while you’re in the park, Serengeti National Park is between 900 and 1850 m altitude. We overnight at the campsite which is guarded by rangers.

Day 5: Serengeti> Ngorongoro Crater. After breakfast we do a game drive. We then return to the campsite for lunch.

The rim of the crater is about 600 meters above the crater floor. This creates different climate zones in the crater. There is a very big chance of spotting the big 5 in one day: lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard.
