Apart from elephants you should be able to see mongoose, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs and reedbucks. You will explore the park until the late afternoon before heading to a nearby campsite to overnight.

In the early afternoon you will continue to the African Rift Valley and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. As soon as you reach the crater rim, you will see this massive caldera open up before you.

You will have lunch at a picnic spot in the crater before the safari continues to the acacia-dotted plains of the Serengeti in the afternoon. The Serengeti is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is here where the mass migration of hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras takes place as they trek between Tanzania and Kenya to find fresh grass and water.
