A complete itinerary of the four main parks of the northern circuit that will amaze you with its landscapes: the mythical Serengeti park, whose name means "boundless plain" in the Masai language; you will be thrilled with the day inside the Ngorongoro crater, the only untouched caldera on earth, the park with the highest concentration of lions in all of Africa and home to the last black rhino of Tanzania. You will have time to visit a Masai village with typical houses and meet the fierce warriors who were once lion hunters; you will stop in Tarangire to see its "giants": Baobabs and Elephants. A journey that will remain in your heart because Africa must be lived according to its rhythms, and by choosing this safari you can enjoy all the beauty of the wildest nature!

The Serengeti National Park is one of the main tourist attractions of the country and is the most famous of the protected natural areas of East Africa, here you can see all the "big five": elephant, lion, leopard, rhino (black) and buffalo. The park was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1981 and it is estimated that it hosts 1.5 million wildebeests, 300,000 zebras, 150,000 gazelles, 3000 lions and 1360 elephants. Nowhere else in the world can one see such a concentration of herbivores. The type of vegetation characteristic of the Serengeti, the open savannah, facilitates sightings and it is for this reason that it is possible here for unparalleled game drives.
Breakfast at the lodge / tented camp, intra-day dedicated to game drives in the Serengeti park
Picnic lunch in the park, at sunset return to the lodge, dinner and overnight stay.
Breakfast at the lodge / tented camp and departure at dawn for a last photo game in the Sergenti park, at the end we will continue towards the Ngorongoro crater;
Upon arrival, go down to the caldera for the game drive, lunch will be a picnic inside the park. At sunset, exit the park and arrive at the selected lodge / tented camp, which can be directly on the slopes of the volcano with an incomparable scenic view on the caldera or in one of the lodges / tented camps adjacent to the park entrance. Dinner and overnight stay.
It is estimated that the formation of the crater dates back to about two million years ago and that it could have reached a height similar to that of Kilimanjaro, to then collapse towards the interior and give rise to the current conformation. The structure of the crater is circular, with about 20 kilometers in diameter. Even the climate differs in this place: while on the edge, which is about 2,200 meters high, the climate is cold and often foggy, inside the caldera the air is hot and dry and the vegetation changes rapidly depending on the season. The concentration of lions in the caldera has no equal in all of Africa, a photographic safari in the Ngrongoro is a unique and unrepeatable experience!
