This short safari from Arusha offers the highlights of the Serengeti National park famous for the Great migration accompanied by big cats; and Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken caldera known for its large number of lions and rarely seen black rhinos. The trip has been carefully crafted for travelers with limited time in Tanzania but still dying to see the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. On your way to the Serengeti, you have options of visiting renowned Olduvai Gorge where the Leakey family uncovered the fossil Homo habilis (the handy man), the first tool user, living over 1.75 million years ago or socializing with the Masai people at one of their village.
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.
