Day 1

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, depart to Tarangire National Park for a full-day game drive. Tarangire has a diverse landscape, with nine vegetation zones. Ancient baobab trees (the largest trees in Africa) dot the landscape dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. The Tarangire River, which meanders through the park attracts an abundance of wildlife, from elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos, zebras, giraffes, and antelopes to a variety of colourful birds. The park is very famous for having the greatest elephant population in Tanzania. During a safari here you will have the chance to quietly observe many families of elephants interacting. With a stop for a picnic lunch in an observatory inside the park, you will be able to view animals drinking water in the river (and many times lions attacking a thirsty zebra or wildebeest). Continue game viewing and finally return to the hotel for dinner and your overnight stay.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park

You'll be picked up from your hotel and start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National Park for a full-day game drive. Although small in dimension (205sq miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and is well famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as a growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Permanent residents of this park also include giraffes, elephants, impalas and a huge amount of buffaloes. The lake is also home to a large number of hippos. Some unique facts about this park include the tree-climbing lions, flamingos in the lake shore, as well as the ground hornbill and the crested eagle. The landscapes of Lake Manyara are something that can not be described in words. The game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes in the foreground and the lake (and its flamingos) in the background.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous national park in the world, the Serengeti. The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. You will drive up the crater highlands, making a quick stop at the rim for an out-of-this-world view of Ngorongoro Crater. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in the local language, "endless plains". The park has 6,900sq miles (18,000sq km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the great migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes including the abundant impalas and Thomson's gazelles. As for big cats and large predators, it's the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas.

Best Time to Visit June to February (Areas are best at different times)

Day 5

Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Crater

Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Crater

Today you will wake up very early to do an early morning safari before breakfast, to spot the animals when they are more active. You'll also have a fantastic sunrise in front of you. The sunrise in the African savannah is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have. After the game drive, return to the camp for brunch, followed by a transfer to Ngorongoro, the 8th Natural Wonder of the World. With walls, 2,000 ft high and a crater floor that spreads for 102sq miles, the crater is a virtual Noah's Ark, inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare black rhino. In fact, the crater has the greatest concentration of wildlife on the planet. It contains a river, several swamps, a soda lake that, from the top, looks like steam, full of flamingoes, a forest and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusks, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.

Accommodation:
Rhino Lodge
  • Mid-range lodge located on the crater rim of Ngorongoro Crater

Day 6

Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha

Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha

After breakfast, descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a morning game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhinos. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro Crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeests, zebras, buffalos, elands, warthogs, hippos, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopards, which sometimes require a trained eye to spot. We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater. Later slowly head out of the crater and drive toward Arusha town.

Main Destination:

Best Time to Visit June to September (General wildlife viewing is best)
