In the afternoon, you’ll descend the steep track into the Great Barranco Valley. Barranco Camp is set on a col (flat area) enclosed on three sides by steep valley walls and the Kibo massif itself. Hanging glaciers glint in the sunshine above, amidst the eerie landscape of plants, such as the giant groundsels (Senecio Kilimanjaro), and the uniquely endemic Giant Lobelia.

Day 9:   Arusha – Ngorongoro Crater 

Ngorongoro Crater – Natural Wonders of the world

After breakfast you will proceed to Ngorongoro Conservation Area and descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive and picnic lunch. The inside of the Ngorongoro Crater is often described as one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. It is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and a natural sanctuary for one of Africa’s most dense animal populations. It is one of the few places where the rare black rhino can still be observed in its natural setting. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater because of its 2,000 ft. high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. With a bit of luck, the ‘Big Five’ can all be spotted in a single game drive. Tonight you will stay overnight in a lodge in the crater.

You pass through green savannah where elephants and giraffes roam, through a stretch of territory which is rarely visited by travelers, to reach the central Serengeti.

The name Serengeti comes from the Masai word, “Siringet” referring to an endless plain. As you traverse the park you’ll begin to understand the reason behind this name. Once you’ve seen enough game for the day, it will be on to your nearby lodge in time for dinner.

Accommodation: Serengeti Sopa Lodge or similar hotel, meals on full board basis (FB)

 

Day 11: Full day game drive in the Serengeti National Park 

If you rise early you can take a morning game drive through the park to see the nocturnal predators returning from their nightly hunt and animals waking up in the early morning light. Depending on the time of year and the migration of the herds, you can expect to see wildebeest, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, baboons, hippos, rhinos, antelopes and many birds and other species. Just as in Ngorongoro, your driver will be in contact with other safari drivers and will amaze you with his skill at locating the hidden animals. You will then head back to your lodge for another night.

There is an optional hot-air balloon safari (Not included in the package cost) which will take place in the morning, just as the sun rises. You’ll float in whichever direction the morning winds take you. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon; at times he will ascend to 1000′ or more to see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti. After the landing you celebrate with champagne and a full English breakfast prepared and served in the bush in ‘Out of Africa’ style. After breakfast you receive your Serengeti balloon certificate and drive back to your lodge or proceed with your day’s activities and game drives around the Serengeti.
