Serengeti + Ngorongoro + Lake Manyara

5-Day Private Safari operated by Peak Planet

After descending from Kili, spent the next five days traveling from Arusha to Lake Manyara (day 1), Ngorongoro Crater (days 2 + 3), and Serengeti National Park (days 4 + 5). My guide was incredibly experienced and managed to spot all of the Big 5, which is quite astonishing considering how difficult it can be to spot a rhino. Even though much of the time in the truck is spent straining through binoculars in between swatting away those spawn-of-Satan tsetse flies, getting to see – even momentarily – so much unique flora and fauna is well worth it.
