Day 1

Arusha to Tarangire National Park

Arusha to Tarangire National Park

Arusha is the safari capital of the country and a bustling ‘tourism-driven’ city. You will be met by your driver-guide in Arusha or at Arusha airport and together you will begin the transfer to Tarangire National Park to start your private safari game drive. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River, which crosses the park and is the main source of fresh water for the wildlife. This quiet park is famous for its elephant migration, birdlife and authentic safari atmosphere. You will enjoy a packed lunch at midday and at the end of the afternoon’s game drive, you will make your way to Africa Safari Lake Manyara. On arrival, you will have time to refresh before finishing the day with dinner under the stars and a good night’s sleep in one of our comfy canvas accommodations.

Ngorongoro Crater Magic

Ngorongoro Crater Magic

Be sure to wake up early today, so there is no delay on your descent into the famous Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you arrive in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, you will be amazed by the beauty around you. Even more so when you arrive at the edge of the crater and take in the amazing view over one of the Natural Wonders of the World. The crater of this inactive volcano is approximately 3 million years old, 20sq km in size, and the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world. Due to its natural borders, the wildlife in the crater is amazing. The crater is home to the Big Five and offers a good chance to spot the rare black rhino. Throw hyena, zebra, buffalo, and elephant into the mix, and you have the perfect canvas for a pretty awesome safari experience. At the end of the afternoon, you'll head back to the lodge, Africa Safari Lake Manyara, for a well-deserved nights’ sleep.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

Today you have a long and rewarding drive ahead of you, as you make your way from Lake Manyara region, through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and into Serengeti National Park. The road will take you through the Maasai homeland, the only tribespeople permitted to live in the Conservation Area. Traditionally nomadic, the Maasai people are rich in culture and can often be seen herding their cattle in brightly coloured traditional Maasai robes. They live in complete harmony with the earth, using their long-ingrained family knowledge of plant life as a means for survival. Along the drive, you will be able to spot giraffes, zebras and other animals. Prepare to be amazed when you catch your first glimpse of the endless plains of the Serengeti. When you arrive in our Africa Safari Serengeti Ikoma Lodge, you will have already had your first taste of game driving and the +14,000sq km that make up the wonder that is Serengeti National Park.

Main Destination:
Serengeti National Park
Best Time to Visit June to February (Areas are best at different times)
High Season July to March (The Seronera area is crowded)

Day 4

Serengeti North

Serengeti North

After breakfast, we will drive to the northern section of the Serengeti which is less frequented than the southern and central parts of the Serengeti, allowing for fewer cars on the road and a more ‘exclusive’ safari experience. At the end of the day, you will leave the park through Klein’s Gate and after a few kilometers find another surprise; Maasai culture in its full glory. You will spend the night at Africa Safari Maasai Boma in a modern-style version of a traditional Maasai boma.

Northern Serengeti National Park
Accommodation:
Africa Safari Maasai Boma (Bungalow)
