Day1: Arrive in Arusha
Pick up at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to your hotel in Arusha in a private vehicle. Dinner and overnight at Arusha Planet Lodge or equivalent.
Day 2: Lake Manyara
After an early breakfast at your hotel, you will hit the road in direction of Lake Manyara National Park for your first game drive. While the scenic beauty of this park certainly makes it worth a visit, the game viewing here is not as rewarding as in Tanzania's other Northern parks. Nonetheless, famous for its tree-climbing lions, flamingos, large concentration of elephants, buffalo and monkeys, as well as breath-taking scenery and soda-ash lake in the centre, Manyara should definitely not be missed! Following your half-day game drive, you will be transferred to your hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 3: Lake Manyara-Serengeti
After breakfast you will continue your journey towards Serengeti National Park, passing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area on the way. Here, the sublime landscapes are home to the Maasai herdsmen who live alongside the area's abundant wildlife. On your drive through the Conservation Area you may spot Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, giraffes, wildebeest, zebra, buffalo and more. You will arrive at Serengeti's Nabi Gate in the early afternoon. Here you will eat lunch before embarking on your first game drive that will take you to the Seronera region in central Serengeti. Seronera is one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park as the Seronera River provides a valuable water source to the area, therefore attracting an abundance of wildlife. Aftery our wonderful afternoon exploring East Africa's most famous park, you will head to your lodge/tented camp for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 4: Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, you will a have full day to explore Serengeti while following the migration of huge herds of wildebeest that every year make the mass migration north, through crocodile infested rivers, in a frenzied mixture of mating and galloping that is driven by instinct. Serengeti National Park is the jewel in the crown of Tanzania’s game parks and offers arguably the best game viewing in Africa. The setting is perfect – a sea of endless plains that stretches to the horizon, dotted with the acacia trees and termite mounds. Prides of lion rule here, as their hungry gazes sweep the savannah for a chance to attack one of the thousands of eland, impala and gazelle. Solitary leopards lie high in the branches of the acacia trees while herds of elephants roam at will. This is the Africa that you have always dreamed about. After an amazing day, you will return to your lodge/tented camp for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 5: Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, you will have another full day in Serengeti, following the wildebeest migration and taking in the incredible show! Dinner and overnight stay at your lodge/tented camp.
Day 6: Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro
After breakfast, you will embark on your last Serengeti game drive, visiting areas that you have not yet seen on previous days. Your explorations will continue until lunch time as you head towards the exit of the park where you will stop to eat. You will then pass through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area once again, spotting game and taking in the beautiful scenery on the way to your lodge/hotel in the Ngorongoro Crater area where you will retire for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha
After an early breakfast, you will drive for approximately 30 minutes to the crater floor. Upon arrival, you will be amazed by the concentration and sheer number and diversity of animals and bird life! Seated or standing in your safari vehicle, the game viewing opportunities will be endless... The Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtakingly beautiful setting and the best place in East Africa to see the Big Five. On the crater floor you can expect to see herds of zebra, wildebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, topi and many more. Sightings of predators such as lion, hyena, jackal and bat-eared fox regularly occur here as well. Although cheetah and leopard are a little more scarce in this park, they can still be spotted with a little luck. Ngorongoro Crater is also one of a handful of places in Africa where you have a very good chance of seeing rhino, though usually from a distance. Bird species are also numerous and varied here. After your half-day safari in the crater, we will leave the park and head back to town. You will be dropped off at your hotel in Arusha or Moshi in the evening, or even at Kilimanjaro International Airport depending on what you have planned for the remainder of your stay in Tanzania.
