Day 5: Optional balloon Safari in Serengeti National Park

Should you opt for hot air balloon safari, then at 5:00 am, Miracle Experience Balloon Safaris will collect you from Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge in Central Serengeti and transfer you by Landrover/Landcruiser to their launch site. Here you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing and watch the inflation of your balloon.

At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and floating in whichever direction the winds of the

morning take us. Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of our balloon: sometimes flying at

treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic

opportunities of the wildlife below. At other times our pilot may ascend to 1,000 ft or more, to

see the enormity and wonderful panorama of the Serengeti. From time to time the pilot must .put more heat into the balloon with the powerful whisper burners. In between these burns, there is silence apart from the natural sounds below. The flight is for about one hour, depending on conditions, and eventually we must land. We celebrate in the traditional manner with champagne (well, an excellent sparkling wine) before sitting down to a full English breakfast prepared and served in the bush in “Out of Africa” style with bone china, linen table cloth, Sheffield cutlery etc.

After breakfast you receive your Serengeti Balloon certificate and later meet up with your safari guide ready to continue your day’s activities.

After a full day of game viewing, which will also Northern/ Mara River, you will return to the lodge in the evening for dinner and overnight.

Overnight will be at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge. This lodge clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, the largest volcanic crater on earth. Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. This is designed to blend completely with the landscape and is entirely invisible from the floor of the crater 600 metres below.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater Tour

Early morning game drive at Ngorongoro Crater, the eighth wonder of the world and one of Africa’s best wildlife arenas. This place offers a unique biosphere, which has remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. Thousands of large mammals can be found in the Crater including elephants, rhinos and lions. You will spend the day at the floor on the crater (the 8th wonder of the world) exploring its rich flora and fauna. This is the best place to encounter the endangered black rhino and flamingos in Lake Magadi. If you are lucky enough, lions will be sleeping by your vehicle for shade. In the evening, you will ascend the crater, depart the park and drive back to our accommodation.

Day 8: Tarangire National Park – Back to Arusha

After early breakfast drive to Tarangire national Park in Northern Tanzania famous for its elephant migration, and birding safari. As this park is slightly off the main safari route, majority of travelers leave this out in favor of the nearer ones, which leaves major parts of Tarangire untouched.
