Walking in the footsteps of Early Man Map - 10days

Walking in the footsteps of Early Man Map

Walking in the footsteps of Early Man

Route / Safari / Trip Name Walking in the footsteps of Early Man
Overview A light safari introduction in Lake Manyara, game drives in Ngorongoro Crater and then an experience rich trek from the Ngorongoro highlands to the Serengeti Short Grass Plains and Ndutu. Ends with game driving in the Serengeti.
Pros A limited edition series with limited departures timed to maximise the game viewing opportunities as well as good hiking as well. Get's way off the beaten track as well as seeing the more regularly visited famous sites of Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Great itinerary for those that: love walking, love game viewing and most of all being out of the car in the wilderness, and yet for the long days this itinerary is still vehicle supported - good for mixed ability families or groups.
Cons There are some hiking days designed for active types. This itinerary is definitely not for arm chair wildlife enthusiasts. Mixed groups can consider this itinerary as there is always a vehicle providing backup which can be used for game drives when others are walking.
