“Our trip was great. We had a fantastic time and saw so many animals!! We were very pleased about the calm and modest nature of our guide. He was always there for us and did not only know about the big game, but also the many birds we saw along the way. We would definitely want to travel with him again.”

However more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals.

From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to watch the animals and absorb the landscape. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands. You will overnight at the Marera Valley Lodge.
