Day 1

Zanzibar to Tarangire National Park

Zanzibar to Tarangire National Park

Today you will have the morning flight from Zanzibar leaving at 8:00 am to Arusha Airport. On arrival in Arusha, at 9:00 am, you will be picked up by your driver guide and drive to Tarangire National Park. Enjoy the wildlife! Your overnight stay will be at Octagon Lodge.
Lunch and dinner are provided. Drinking water will also be provided every day per person.

Tarangire National Park is almost 3000sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June - November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River, the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.

Main Destination:

Best Time To Visit July to November (Animals come to the Tarangire River)

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, descend into the crater for a crater game tour.
Later on, you will drive back to Karatu for an overnight at Octagon Lodge.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided. Drinking water will also be provided every day per person.

Often called the eighth Natural Wonder of the World, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago, the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometres wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo-filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals—including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.

Main Destination:

Best Time To Visit June to October (Wildlife viewing is best)
