Day 5 Ngorongoro Crater
Descend through the early morning mist 2,000 feet into the crater for an awesome wildlife experience. Known as ‘the eighth wonder of the world' and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa's best-known wildlife arenas. Enclosed by towering walls, some 25,000 large mammals wander the plains, lakes and forests of ‘the land that time forgot', dominated by enormous bull elephants, rhinos and lions. Enjoy a picnic lunch at a scenic spot inside the crater, before returning to the lodge in the late afternoon.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater / Serengeti - TAASA Private Reserve
Transfer to Manyara Airstrip for your light aircraft flight to TAASA Private Reserve. Bordering the northern edge of the Serengeti National Park, far away from the crowds, with no outside vehicles, TAASA has excellent animal viewing throughout the year with resident wildlife such as lion, cheetah and hyena.
Day 7 TAASA Private Reserve
Explore the endless plains of the Serengeti during morning and afternoon open vehicle game drives when the animals are most active. TAASA offers the added bonus of night game drives, and you may see striped hyena on the prowl or lions on the hunt. Your Maasai guide will be in his tracker's chair mounted on the vehicle front with his floodlight sweeping for the reflective eyes of predators.
Day 8 TAASA Private Reserve
Another glorious day in the vast Serengeti. An optional hot air balloon ride is one of the most magical ways to experience the Serengeti. Balloon safaris take off just before dawn so that you are high above the plains in time for sunrise. A walk in the bush, surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of Africa, is a more personal experience than a drive in a safari vehicle. Accompanied by a professional guide, learn about the ecology of the area, the medicinal uses of trees and bushes in Maasai tradition, and gain basic skills in tracking. One of the most rewarding experiences of any visit to Africa is time spent with the local people. While at TAASA, you can visit the Maasai of Ololosokwan, who are always enthusiastic to share their cultural beliefs.
Day 9 TAASA Private Reserve / Depart
Savor your last morning in Tanzania. After breakfast transfer to the airstrip for the scheduled light aircraft flight to Arusha. Enjoy lunch and a place to relax at a day room reserved for your use. Later this afternoon transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport for your international departure flight.
