  • Day 1 | Arusha - Tarangire national park

    After breakfast departs for Tarangire National Park. Full-day game drive in Tarangire National Park. 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 colorful birds. The park is very famous for having the greatest elephant population in Tanzania, and during a safari there 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 where 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 lodge for dinner.

    Depart after breakfast and drive across the Great Rif Valley to Lake Manyara National Park for a full-day game drive. Although only 205 sq. miles in size this enchanting park is noted for its beauty and incredibly lush acacia forest of giant figs and mahogany trees, which are home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. The park is also home to a large number of buffalos, giraffes, elephants, impalas, and a Hippo lake, where large numbers of hippos usually gather. Well known for its birds (over 400 different species), Lake Manyara is one of the few places where you'll be able to see the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. This park has become famous for the climbing lions and the flamingos on the lakeshore. The landscapes of this park are absolutely stunning. The game drives are done along the shore of the lake, providing incredible views of giraffes and buffalos in the foreground with the lake, flamingos, and flat plains on the horizon. In the afternoon, return to Lodge for dinner.

  • Day 3 | Lake Manyara to Central Serengeti

     

    Today you're off to the famous Serengeti National Park, home of the Great Migration. Your drive today is spectacular as you drive up the crater highlands, stopping at the rim for a bird’s eye view of the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater. Continuing on, as you crest the hillside, spread out before you, as far as the eyes can see, is the vast Serengeti Serengeti means "endless plains" in Kiswahili, and this 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million large animals including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and Thomson's gazelles. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrates throughout the park. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax, bat-eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboons, and African hares also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. Afternoon game drives en-route to camp for dinner and overnight stray.

  • Day 5 - 6 | Serengeti national park Following the Migration

     

     

    On these two days, you will be driven across the Serengeti vast plains in search of migration. The location of the migration depends on the time of the year and could be as far as the remote North of the Serengeti near the border with Kenya, or could be in the South (Ndutu Area). The latter end of the drive back to the camp for dinner and overnight.

    Note: If you come from July to November, then the migration will be in the remote Northern Serengeti. In this case, we would strongly recommend doing Ngorongoro before the Serengeti and then flying out from the Northern Serengeti to Arusha or Zanzibar to remove all the backtracking.

    Today you will wake up very early to do an early morning safari before breakfast, to spot the animals when they are more active, and also to 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. In the afternoon, transfer to Ngorongoro, the 8th natural wonder of the world. With walls, 2,000 f high and a crater floor that spreads for 102 sq. 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. The crater contains the river, several swamps, and 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 tusk, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. Arrived in Ngorongoro in the afternoon and drive to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.
