This 7-day safari is your chance to get the wildlife experience of a lifetime. It is the calving season of the Migration, which is a particularly good time to spot predators too. Action aplenty! This event happens once in a year in the month of February and Magufwa Safari is happy to take you there. You will fly back to Arusha from the Ndutu airstrip in the Serengeti, another great experience with views you will not forget.

After breakfast at your hotel in Arusha, you will be picked up for departure for the Safari. You will have time for any last-minute purchases in Arusha, before departing to Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive.
Lake Manyara is one of the smaller parks in Tanzania. It covers an area from the north western edge and a large proportion of the lake itself. The lake is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingo, pelicans and more than one hundred other types of birds that also make this lake their home. On the partly forested edges you get a chance to watch the proud elephants with their impressive tusks searching for food and going about their daily business.
Manyara is not only known for its large flocks of flamingos, but also for tree climbing lions.
This morning we go to the Ngorongoro Conservation Ara where you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater early, having the Crater almost to yourself for the first hour. The Crater is a microcosm, and you’re almost guaranteed some game sightings out of this world.
There are 25,000 large mammals residing in the park, elephants occurring are mainly bulls, females tend to stay out of the crater due to the largest predator population in Africa. Black Rhino also make their home on the grassy plains, their numbers make up for almost half which can be found in East Africa.
