A 6 Day Safari, to Lake Natron, Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater / Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Day one Start: from Moshi to Lake Natron at 8.00 am
Destination: Lake Natron, afternoon lake activity
Accommodation: Camping at World View Campsite
What to see: Lake Natron is a salt lake close to the Kenyan border. It is quite shallow and varies in width depending on its water level. Red accessory photosynthesizing pigment in microorganisms produces the deep reds of the open water of the lake, and orange colours of the shallow parts of the lake. The alkali salt crust on the surface of the lake is also often colored red or pink. Salt marshes and freshwater wetlands around the edges of the lake do support a variety of plants. The high temperature and the high and very variable salt content of the lake do not support wildlife. However it is an important habitat for flamingos and is home to endemic algae, invertebrates and round the margins even fish that can survive in the slightly less salty water. The lake is the only regular breeding area in East Africa for the Lesser Flamingos. There is the possibility to get a great view on Ol Doinyo Lengai, an active volcano, called the “Mountain of God” in the Maasai language.
Overnight at World View Campsite.

Destination: Game drive in central Serengeti on your way to Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area
Accommodation: Simba Campsite Ngorongoro
What to see: The Serengeti hosts the largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world and is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment. Approximately 70 larger mammals and some 500 avifauna species are found there. This high diversity in terms of species is a function of diverse habitats ranging from riverine forests, swamps, kopjes, grasslands and woodlands. Wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalo’s are some of the commonly found large mammals in the region.
Day 6 Start: From campsite to Ngorongoro Crater at 7.00 am.

You can find as well wildebeest, hippopotamus, baboon, hyenas, and many types of birds. In the afternoon/ evening you will drive back to Moshi to your hotel.
