Take a scenic drive to tranquil Gibb’s Farm, where you stop for a lunch made with organic, just-picked ingredients. Later, arrive at the natural amphitheater of Ngorongoro Crater, a 2,000-foot deep caldera. A fascinating microcosm of East African wildlife — including buffalo, flamingos, lions and leopards — resides inside. Climb the outer wall, passing through dense vegetation until a breathtaking view across the crater floor appears.

Drive to the fabled Serengeti National Park, stopping for a guided visit of Olduvai Gorge.

It’s also home to the largest concentrations of wildlife in the world, with lions, hyenas and leopards making appearances. The region also hosts the spectacular Great Migration, when a flurry of wildebeests and zebras arrive in search of grass and water. Sip sundowner cocktails as the sun hangs low. Meals: B L D.
