Tarangire National Park
Today after breakfast you will be collected from your lodge and drive to Tarangire National Park with lunch boxes. The drive to Tarangire National Park is about 110 Km and takes about 2 hours from Arusha
Tarangire National Park is a huge park best known for its large herds of elephants, but it’s also great for lion and leopard, wonderful for bird life, great variety of landscape and wildlife. The gorgeous Silale Swamp, towards the south of the park, is magnificent and almost always rich in wildlife taking advantage of this reliable water source. The park provides water not only from the swamp, but also from the Tarangire River and during the dry season it’s the primary source of water for animals from the entire area, making for fantastic viewing.
After a full day in the park, we will drive a short distance to Kitela Tented Lodge for overnight and dinner.
Tarangire to Serengeti National Park
Today after breakfast your driver guide will pick you from your lodge and you will drive to the famous Serengeti.
You will visit a Maasai Village in the Ngorongoro Highlands (optional) where you will meet the Elders, Warriors, women and children and learn about the culture, beliefs and traditions of Tanzania’s last nomadic tribe
The central Serengeti boast those spectacular “endless plains,” dotted with acacia trees and the occasional rocky kopjes — What is special about Central Serengeti is the wide open spaces, driving through the miles and miles of animals as far as the eye can see, riverine forest and leopard. There is nice chance of seeing leopard along the river valleys also the wildebeest spread over a large area (It can be visited at any time of the year)
You will have your lunch in the park thereafter continue with the game drive. In the evening you will drive to an authentic intimate tented camp set in a secluded part of the game-rich Seronera Valley in Central Serengeti.
Serengeti National Park
Before sunrise around 6 am we leave the lodge for early morning game drive. This is generally the best time to spot the wildlife, as the temperature is cool and the animals are still very active, including the big cats, which will be returning from a night of hunting.
You will then drive back to the lodge for a leisure breakfast followed by a pure relaxation break. You will then go for another game drive and sunset viewing over the Serengeti.

The view from the veranda of the lodges are breath taking especially in the morning with the early morning mist, because of the high altitude (It can be visited at any time of the year)
