Today enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti. Scene of many wildlife documentaries, this park has thrilled travellers and writers for generations with its annual wildebeest and zebra migration. Vast herds follow the rains looking for fresh pastures whilst in hot pursuit are the big cats, picking off their prey – a magical sight to see! Instead of the morning game drive it is possible to book an exhilarating hot air balloon flight (at extra cost) for a birds-eye perspective.

You are sure to see some of Africa’s Big 5 today so don’t forget to take binoculars and camera.

Spend a full day inside the Crater with a picnic lunch. With its stunning scenery and plentiful wildlife, it’s not hard to see why Ngorongoro is rated one of the top destinations in Africa and now included in the seven natural wonders of the world. The Crater is the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and is home to a diverse range of habitats including forest, swamps, lakes and open grasslands.

After an early breakfast, it’s a 15-minute drive to the park headquarters for registration and a briefing by your guide ready for the trek. Depending on where the gorillas are located, the trek can last between two to six hours. Moving through the dense vegetation, keep an eye out for other wildlife including golden monkey, duiker, buffalo, spotted hyena and numerous bird species.

Once the gorillas are found, your group will spend about an hour with these fascinating primates, before heading back to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon head back to Kigali for an overnight stay in the Rwandan capital.
