In the streams of rivers feeding the lake there are lots of hippopotamus staying dormant during the day time escaping the heat of the day. The park has an area of 330 square kilometers of which about two third is the lake itself and the other one third is terrestrial land covered by forest, acacia woodland and grasslands by the lake shore, and during the game drive you will pass through all these vegetation types. When you depart Arusha you will take picnic lunch boxes with you and you will have your lunch at one of the picnic sites inside the Lake Manyara National Park.

Leaving the Ngorongoro highlands behind you will enter the Southern plains of the Serengeti National Park where your eyes will have an opportunity to see up to its limits as you will be viewing the endless plains with lots of animals. Actually the name Serengeti is the corruption of the Maasai word Siringeti which means endless plains. Serengeti is one of the most famous wildlife areas in the world with an area of over 14,000 square kilometers. Serengeti is the home of millions of small and big animals with all big five mammals, over 500 bird species, crocodiles in the Grumeti river other reptiles such as tortoises and snakes. Serengeti has a very beautiful land scape. Apart from variations in vegetations and animal species, there are rolling hills and massive granite rock outcrops (kopjes) which can be up to 20m high. On top of the kopjes animals such as lions, leopards and hyraxes like to rest and give a chance of taking remarkable photos. Serengeti is the home to about 1.4 million wildebeest which do participate in famous migration together with zebras, Thompson and Grant gazelles, and the elands. These animals do migrate annually from the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti exploring the whole park and then cross the Mara River in the north and enter in Maasai Mara game reserve and then back to Serengeti. During your stay in Serengeti there is a very big possibility to see these animals in their journey together with hundreds of predators which usually get a better opportunity of hunting them. On your arrival at the Serengeti you will continue with the game drive before check in at one of the following for lunch; Kleins Camp, Serengeti Serena Lodge, Serengeti Sopa Lodge, Seronera wildlife Lodge.

After breakfast you will depart the lodge/camp site heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area with a short stop over at the Olduvai Gorge where the cradle/origin of human being has been discovered and reserved there. You will be doing game drive as you will be leaving the Serengeti National Park.
