Later, arrive at the natural amphitheatre of Ngorongoro Crater, a 2,000-footdeep caldera. A fascinating microcosm of East African wildlife — including buffalo, flamingos, lions and leopards — resides inside. Climb the outer wall, passing through dense vegetation until a breath-taking view across the crater floor appears. Arrive at your tented camp, located on the rim of the crater and featuring luxury accommodations adorned with mosquito nets, hand-woven rugs, crisp linens and en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers.

This afternoon, visit with an elder at a Maasai village, where you learn about the tribe’s traditional, nomadic lifestyle and coexistence with wildlife. You also partake in an Artisan Visit with a demonstration in traditional beadwork and crafts. Later, witness a private dance performance at your tented camp. Sense the incomparable spirit of this pastoral, nomadic people who have kept their tribal traditions alive through countless generations of life in East Africa.

Day 7:
Serengeti National Park | Searching the Vast Plains

Fly to the fabled Serengeti National Park and settle into your camp. Then, set out on the boundless Serengeti, one of the oldest and least-changed ecosystems on earth as well as home to one of the world’s largest concentrations of wildlife, with lions, hyenas and leopards all endemic. The region also hosts the spectacular Great Migration, when a flurry of wildebeests and zebras arrive in search of grass and water. It is an epic spectacle you may witness depending on your choice of departure. This evening, as the equatorial sun hangs low over the plains, take a moment to sip a sun-downer cocktail and reflect on the majesty of Africa.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is a national park in Tanzania’s Manyara Region. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River that crosses the park. The Tarangire River is the primary source of fresh water for wild animals in the Tarangire Ecosystem during the annual dry season. The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras. During the dry season thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater, extinct volcanic caldera in the Eastern (Great) Rift Valley, northern Tanzania. It lies 75 miles (120 km) west of the town of Arusha.

It is home to a diverse array of animals including elephants, black rhinoceroses, leopards, buffalo, zebras, warthogs, gnu (wildebeests), Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, and the densest population of lions in the world. The local Masai people also graze their livestock in the crater. Lake Magadi, a shallow soda lake ringed by extinct volcanoes, is renowned as a habitat for great flocks of pink flamingos.

Lemala Ngorongoro Tented Camp

Lemala Ngorongoro is intimately set in a delightful ancient acacia forest close to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. As it is located next to the quiet Lemala crater access road on the eastern side, a key advantage of staying at Lemala Ngorongoro is the quick and easy drive down on to the crater floor in the morning; Lemala guests usually have an hour’s head start over others descending via the far busier Seneto crater access road on the western rim.

Lake Masek Tented Camp
