Day 1

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park

Karibu Tanzania! Today our guide will collect you after breakfast from your hotel to start your safari. He will brief you about the safari, the schedule and what to expect. The drive to Tarangire will take about 2 hours. Enjoy the beautiful views of the local villages and Maasai herds on the way.

If you’ve never been to Tarangire (and even if you have) you’re in for a real treat. Tarangire is filled with giants – baobab trees all across the park, as well as elephants. Of the big cats, you’ll probably see lions, cheetahs and leopards are around too. Watch out for the wildebeest, giraffes, hippos, buffaloes and zebras. Our guide will take you off the beaten track and share stories about the park and the natural world around you.

As you enjoy your meal at the picnic site, the sound of birds singing and the rustling of leaves in the wind will add to the peaceful and serene atmosphere of the moment. Later we leave Tarangire behind us and drive towards the beautiful Heart & Soul Lodge.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

We'll depart after breakfast and head towards Serengeti National Park, where we will arrive around lunch time. The Serengeti is one of the world's most famous wildlife destinations. We'll explore the vast plains in search of the Big Five and other animals like cheetahs, hyenas, and zebras. The Serengeti’s scenery is also unforgettable – observe Africa’s iconic acacia trees, the park’s golden grasslands and great piles of boulders known as kopjes.

As the sun begins to set over the African savannah, it's time to head back to your lodge after a thrilling day of safari adventures. But the experience isn't over yet - the journey back to your lodge can be just as exciting as the game drives themselves. As your vehicle makes its way through the park, you might catch glimpses of wildlife that are more active in the evening hours, such as hyenas or nocturnal birds. The changing colors of the sky and the warm glow of the setting sun add to the magic of the moment.

Day 4

Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro

Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro

Today we wake up early and start the day with a beautiful sunrise game drive. There's something truly magical about experiencing the African wilderness at sunrise, and a sunrise game drive is one of the best ways to do so. The early morning is an incredible time to spot some of the park's most elusive and active wildlife, including lions, leopards, and hyenas. The cooler temperatures and softer light create the perfect conditions for a memorable safari adventure, as you journey through the park's vast savannahs and grasslands. During the morning game drive we slowly head back to the gate where we arrive around lunch time.

In the afternoon, it will be time to head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, one of the most stunning and unique parks in Tanzania. The journey to the park is an adventure in itself, as you traverse winding roads through breathtaking scenery.

Day 5

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater

A game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater is a highlight of any safari adventure in Tanzania. This unique natural wonder is home to an incredible array of wildlife, from herds of grazing antelope to majestic lions and towering elephants.
Journeying through the crater on a game drive, you'll have the chance to spot some of the park's most iconic species, including black rhinoceros, hippos, and wildebeest. Your experienced guide will share insights into the ecology of the region, as well as stories and facts about the fascinating behaviors of the park's many species.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a particularly special location for a game drive due to its enclosed nature. Surrounded by towering walls, the crater forms a natural amphitheater that makes it easy to spot a wide range of wildlife. You'll travel through lush forests and open savannahs, taking in breathtaking views of the crater floor and its many inhabitants.

In the afternoon your driver/guide will take you back to Arusha.
