After passing Maasai villages, you will then travel on to the famous mountains of the Rift Valley; Mount Gelai or the Oldonyo Lengai ‘the holy mountain of the Maasai’. Today’s destination is the beautiful small Maasai village of Ngare Sero. With its trees offering shade and a nearby waterfall, it is just what an oasis should be in the hot, dry and dusty Rift Valley. In the distance, a pink glow shimmers from thousand of flamingos breeding on the alkalineLakeNatron. You will stay overnight at a campsite near to the lake itself.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner


Day 3 Lake Natron – Serengeti Lobo Area

The Serengeti is the most famous park inTanzaniaas it is home to the largest animal migration on the planet. The migrating animals are free to roam where they please and are not confined solely to the park boundaries. However, it has been witnessed that they are straying further afield and to this date, the wildlife watching can only be described of as spectacular. You will stay overnight at a campsite in theSerengetiNational Park.
