Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s most renowned national parks and this safari itinerary utilizes the finest lodges and deluxe tented safari camps in these parks. Enjoy excellent guiding for the entire trip, which takes you from Lake Manyara to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater before stopping in the Serengeti to witness the annual migration, one of the most spectacular sights imaginable.

Your journey starts with a game drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park and your accommodations at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge in a spacious tree house nestled in the boughs of the beautiful mahogany trees. It was on the shores of Lake Manyara that Ernest Hemingway wrote Green Hills of Africa. During your exploration of the ancient baobab trees and mahogany forest, look for the famous tree-climbing lions and other spectacular game found in the area.
The next day’s game drive brings you to the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, one of the most spectacular settings in all of Africa. The region is home to amazing numbers of big game as well as the majestic Maasai tribe. Spend the next two nights in the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, where you will experience breathtaking views from every vantage point.

A light aircraft flight will take you to the Serengeti National Park. Here, you will stay at one of four camps, specifically chosen to provide the best location for viewing the annual migration herds depending on the season and their current location. The sheer number of wildebeest, zebra and other game moving through the region is astonishing, providing memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Reviewer: located in Osoyoos, BC Canada
    We recently returned from  taking the "South America Journey" trip arranged by Ker & Downey.  This  was our second trip with Ker & Downey, last year we enjoyed the thrilling "Classic Botswana Safari". South America has been on our list of "things to do", therefore with the excellent service provided by Ker & Downey last year, we decided to book the "South America Journey" which we  saw on  the Ker & Downey website.  Ker & Downey were again able to design a custom trip  which took us to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.  From the moment we were met at the Jorge Chavez airport in Lima, Peru until we departed from the airport in Quito, Ecuador this journey was   nothing short of clockwork precision.  All our accommodation and tours were first class, excellent food and ALL our personal guides/drivers in Peru and Ecuador should be commended for their knowledge and professionalism and foremost their friendliness.  Both Peru and Ecuador are beautiful, beautiful countries as are their people.  The "Coral 1" and crew were no exception, they were terrific, as was the complete tour in the Galapagos Islands.We again would like to say a "BIG THANK YOU" to Ker & Downey, for putting together  this enjoyable and exciting " South America Journey " one we will remember for a life time. The itinerary and trip could not have been any better! Thanks again and hopefully we  will be able to book another exciting journey with Ker & Downey in the near future.
