Immerse yourself into the heart of the Serengeti savanna, where we spend two excellent nights either witnessing the Great migration or birding or searching for the BIG 5. Then proceed to Ngorongoro Crater, and enjoy the marvelous game viewing on the Crater floor filled with an unparalleled concentration of animals and bird species... During the safari, you have the option to visit either a village of the Maasai people to witness the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals or a short visit to renowned Olduvai Gorge, some believe to be a cradle of mankind. It's here that Dr. Leakey and his wife Mary uncovered the fossil Homo habilis (the handy man), the first tool user, living over 1.75 million years ago.
