What to Expect on This Safari
This popular itinerary can be customized to match your budget and travel dates by adding/removing a few days or selecting different lodges
Arusha - Tarangire National Park
After a breakfast, your drive will be at your hotel ready to take approximate 2-hour drive to Tarangire National Park. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the evening you reach your lodge inside the park.
Dinner and overnight at Baobab Camp in Tarangire.
Tarangire - Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast you will travel from the Tarangire Area to the Lake Manyara National Park.
The park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests, and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large number of flamingos and many more waterfowls. The park is also home to giraffes, elephant, zebras, Buffaloes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons. After an extensive game drive, you will exit the park and drive to your lodge for overnight.
Dinner and overnight at Marera Valley Lodge
Lake Manyara - Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti and at midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. This park is the largest in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes – short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water.
Dinner and overnight at Embalakai Tented Camps.
Serengeti National Park
The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from one year to another although, your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best.
Dinner and overnight at Embalakai tented camp.
Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Crater
On your outward journey to the park gate, you will enjoy some more game viewing before you leave the Serengeti National Park in the early afternoon to continue your journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. On the way you can see the Maasai boma and experience their lifestyle. You will reach your lodge at time for lunch.
Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge.
Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha
After breakfast you will descend 600m down the crater for game drive. The massive collapsed volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard – to spotted hyenas, rare warthogs, and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic for lunch at hippo pool, you will leave the crater in the late afternoon and drive to Arusha town to end up your tour.
