This 17 days great wildebeest migration safari offers accommodation in the permanent tented camps with solid flooring. Luxury safaris include specially selected four to five-star tented lodgings where you will have a bedroom, good beds with linen and an en-suite bathroom.
Travelling in a 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof is the classic safari style. The vehicle is fitted with seatbelts for each passenger, a 40l fridge with water and a plug point for charging cell phones and cameras.
Our safari vehicles with hatched roof for shade against sunny African wilderness; are extended body with roomy seats for comfortable sitting and stretching out legs. Every guest is accessible to window seat. Cars are also fitted with fridges, power charge sockets and VHF radio calls for easy and fast communication with base office in Arusha town. A vehicle in only as good as the driver and drivers are excellent. Each one is custom designed with an extra large photographic roof hatch, extra dust proofing, comfortable seats with seat belts and canvas covers, first aid kits, binoculars, a selection of field guides and a cooler stocked with bottles of mineral water supplied by Cross to Africa Safaris at no additional cost.
Every safari vehicle carries a maximum of six passengers so that every passenger is guaranteed a window seat and access to the photographic roof hatch at all times during the safari.
Every safari vehicle is serviced after each safari.
Driver guides are all trained naturalists who have more than five years experience with us, they know their way around the parks and are skilled at spotting and identifying wildlife. They are also trained to prepare delicious picnic lunches in the bush, so that you can maximize your game viewing opportunities.
Game viewing from the vehicle is one of the core activities of a wildlife safari. Drives are conducted in the morning and evening, but depending on time of year and weather conditions may extend throughout the day. It is often best to head out for a game drive very early after a quick cup of coffee and a muffin, returning later for a leisurely breakfast. Alternatively a camp breakfast could be followed by a long morning game scouting drive with a picnic carried along and eaten whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Evening game drives are generally very rewarding, and it is during these times that we expect the best light for photography and enjoying the ever magnificent African bush scenery.

Day 1: Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport


Meet and greet at the airport followed by transfer to Zawadi House Lodge for dinner and overnight stay. (Includes: Half Board)

Day 2: Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park

After safari briefing at the lodge, tourists start towards Mto Wa Mbu where they can buy papayas, mangoes, bananas and other exotic fruits. They also enjoy game drives at Lake Manyara National Park. Finally, they arrive at Lake Manyara Wildlife Tented camp for dinner and overnight stay.

Days 3 & 4: Lake Manyara National Park and Lake Eyasi

We will take tourists to a rarely visited, isolated landscape. After a dusty drive, they will enjoy a beautiful view to the Great Rift Valley and Lake Eyasi. Dinner and overnight stay will be prearranged at Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge. This camp offers all the romance and the comforts of a traditional luxury tented camp. The tents are set in a stunning position on the shore of a soda lake, at the base of the Rift Valley escarpment. Views across the lake are awe-inspiring, especially those from the huge granite boulder behind the camp at sunset.
(Includes: Full Board)

Day 5: Lake Eyasi – Ngorongoro Crater

The day starts with a drive to Ngorongoro Crater. After lunch clients will get to see a great variety and density of animals in the second largest caldera on earth. Tourists will experience one of the most beautiful game drives in the late afternoon. Most of the people leave the crater-floor by that time. The light also gets soft and the activity of the wild animals increases. Please have a sufficient quantity of film-rolls with you; you will want to take a lot of pictures of this fascinating African landscape, with amazing flora and fauna. Dinner and overnight stay will be prearranged at Ngorongoro Rhino Safari Lodge.

Day 6: Empakai Crater

Few people have experienced this extraordinary excursion. Passing the slopes of the Olmoti Crater you will be fascinated by the scenery of Embulbul Depression, Mount Loolmalassin and Empakai Crater. On a really difficult track we will ride you to the rim of Empakai Crater (2700m). This caldera is bordered by 600m high, steep jungle walls while its floor is covered with a green glimmering lake – the seasonal home of millions of flamingos. An armed ranger will accompany you which open the chance to descend to the crater floor (tough path!). Dinner and overnight stay arranged at Ngorongoro Rhino Safari Lodge.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater – Serengeti National Park

Passing Ngorongoro crater rim, tourists descend through an impressive landscape down to Olduvai Gorge. There, they will find the most complete and oldest proofs of human development. Stop a while to gather more information about the cradle of mankind, before continuing to the heart of Serengeti. Dinner and overnight will be at the special campsite, Serengeti Kati Kati Tented Camp.

Days 8 – 11: Serengeti National Park

Tourists will have plenty of time to explore the Serengeti, one of the most beautiful National Parks in the world with an incredible wildlife. The journey is adapted to tourists’ travel period. In this season approximately 2.5 million animals are on their “great migration” to southern Serengeti. Because of the rainfalls in these months, the herds move southwards. You will get the chance to observe this unique natural spectacle! As our safaris have no limit of mileage and time, you will get to know whole of the Serengeti region. You also get to visit Ngong Hill and Moru Kopjes – also known as “Islands in the Sea of Grass land”. Tourists take their time to have a look around, rest for a bit and enjoy the nature! Dinner and overnight stay will again be at the special camp site, Serengeti Kati Kati camp.

Days 12: Serengeti National Park – Ndutu Woodlands

On this day, tourists will move to a lodge in Ndutu Woodlands. This will give the crew enough time to move the camp from Serengeti to Nasera Rock. Dinner and overnight stay will be arranged at special Heritage Tented Camp.

Days 13 & 14: Ndutu Woodlands – Nasera Rock

After breakfast, tourists will expereince a walking safari in Ndutu woodlands with an armed ranger. They will then return to the camp for hot lunch and then depart to Nasera Rock via game drive. There is an option of visiting Fig Tree if tourists are interested. For this, they drive on dusty, nearly never used trails to the north – for an excursion into the lost wilderness! Tourists will find a fig tree in untouched Maasai land, north of Oldupai and close to the Gol Mountains. Even if the group is not interested in trees in general, this tree will tell you about the last 1000 years. We found this tree about 14 years ago and used to talk for hours with it. We are proud to show our lonely friend and you will not forget this “cathedral of a tree”! Dinner and overnight stay will be at Ndutu Heritage special campsite. (Includes: Full Board)

Day 15: Ndutu Heritage special Camp -Malambo – Lake Natron

Passing by Malambo, you will reach Lake Natron which is surrounded by Shompole (Kenya) in the North, is opposite to Gelai and is next to Oldonyo Lengai – the Maasai holy mountain. A tough track leads to our tented lodge at River Ngarasero. Dinner and overnight will be at Sengo Tented Camp(basic lodge). (Includes: Full Board)

Day 16: Lake Natron – Arusha

The day’s drive is long and exhausting. Along the nearly vertical walls of the Rift, the track takes us back to civilization. We return to Arusha, and have dinner and overnight stay at Zawadi House Lodge.

Day 17:Zawadi House Lodge – Kilimanjaro International Airport

After breakfast clients will have a day’s stay at Mt. Meru Game Lodge and will later be transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport for their flight back home or for connection flights to Zanzibar.
During the months of December to March: You will also see the Great Migration here (depending on the rains). With rainfall, this excursion could become a real adventure.
From the months June – November: clients will proceed to Lobo Wildlife Lodge north of Serengeti National Park and then drive from Lobo to Warsaw, Loliondo and Lake Natron, as Nasera Rock becomes very dry and there are no animals in the area at this time of the year.
