A cheetah sighting in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.You will be met by your private guide and you will embark on your African safari through the landscapes of Tanzania, past Lake Manyara to the world famous Ngorongoro Crater. Spend your first 2 nights at Serena Safari Lodge. The lodge is situated adjacent to the Serengeti National Park, on the rim of the previously-volcanic Ngorongoro Crater that is centred in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Your comfortable Tanzania safari accommodation has an en-suite bathroom, a private rock-enclosed balcony and modern amenities. Enjoy spectacular views of the Ngorongoro Crater from your suite that is decorated with authentic African safari furnishings and Maasai carvings. Take advantage of your prime position on the rim of the Crater as you spend your first evening enjoying sundowners overlooking the pristine views of the unique ecosystem of the crater.
On the second day of your stay, your guide will take you on a game drive down to the Crater floor where you will indulge in a bush breakfast in full view of the surrounding views and wildlife. This game drive takes place in a specialized 4x4 safari vehicle alongside a trained guide. A large collection of wildlife and bird species can be spotted during the drive, including possible sightings of the big five.
If you prefer a more intensive view of the bush, take a guided nature walk around the Crater rim, where close interaction will give you a deeper understanding of the smaller facets of the bush. Your guided safari will also take you to the local Maasai markets where the traditional culture of this unique tribe is showcased. Evenings are spent interacting with the Maasai people as they entertain you with their story-telling, dancing and singing.

Your en-suite room will be in a traditional stone and thatch rondavel and will provide you with either a view level to the surrounding plains or overlooking it. With a private entrance and a private balcony, you can relax in the comfort of your room as you enjoy the amenities provided.
The resident game of the Serengeti National Park is simply phenomenal. The park is home to millions of wildebeest, zebras, hyenas, predators and the Thompson's gazelle.
The Great Migration is a natural phenomenon that witnesses massive herds of wildebeest and zebra find new grazing plains each year. If your stay falls over the period of this occurrence, you will be amazed by spectacular views of this mass movement that is sometimes disrupted by lurking predators.
Your days will be spent game viewing with your private guide who will take you on daily game drives throughout the Serengeti National Park. Return to Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge in the late afternoons for sundowners and dinner around a fire.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
