During the short rainy season in November and December, the herds make their way from the hills in the north to the plains of the south, returning north during the longer rainy season from April to June. Lurking close by, you might even spot some leopards, cheetahs, and lions. After an eventful day you will return to your campsite for dinner and an overnight stay.

The crater floor also boasts diverse habitats such as grasslands, swamps, and acacia forests, offering excellent bird-watching opportunities. Enjoy a picnic lunch by a hippo pool before continuing your exploration. In the evening, ascend from the crater and set up camp on the crater rim, where you'll have dinner and spend the night.

After a hearty breakfast, depart for Lake Manyara National Park, renowned for its stunning scenery and ecological diversity. The park's diverse habitats range from groundwater forests and acacia woodlands to open savannahs and the alkaline lake itself. Here, you might spot the famous tree-climbing lions, large herds of elephants, and an array of bird species, including thousands of flamingos that create a pink hue on the lake's surface.
