This is one of the best Tanzania safari experience as it gives a wide opportunity to the visitors to experience the nature and wildlife in the most joyful destinations in Africa as the tour will take you to Tarangire, Serengeti national parks and Ngorongoro Crater where you will have enough time to spend there.
Day 1 Arusha to Tarangire National Park
- After breakfast, you will be picked up from hotel by your safari guide and driven to the Tarangire National Park.
- Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq. 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.
- Late afternoon you will head to your accommodations for an overnight sleep.
Day 2 Tarangire to Lake manyara
- Early in the morning, you will be picked up from the lodge and driven to Lake Manyara National park.
- Lake Manyara is a beautiful little park, which is famous for its tree-climbing lions, elephants and large troops of baboons.
- The park is home to an amazing variety of birds and animals considering its small size.
- A short visit to this serene park will greatly diversify your safari experience as the lush green jungle habitat is of stark contrast to the other parks you will visit during your safari.
- You will continue with the game drive in the park until in the evening when you will head straight to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.
Day 3 Lake Manyara to Serengeti
- After breakfast you will depart for Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch box.
- The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq. km and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains.
- You will enjoy the afternoon game drive before heading to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.
Day 4 Explore the Serengeti National Park
- Early morning after breakfast, you will enjoy a full day in different parts of Serengeti!
- The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel.
- Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June - November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water in the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.
- Late afternoon you will head back to you accommodations for the overnight sleep.
Day 5 Serengeti National Park
- Another full day in Serengeti National Park.
- There are several documented resident lion prides just within a one-hour game drive radius from Seronera.
- During the dry season, the resident prides begin to shift west and north in their territories and concentrate in the central region of the park. The dry season is particularly good time for lion viewing in the Central of the Serengeti National Park.
- The Central Serengeti is also one of the best areas in Africa to spot the elusive leopard. You may be lucky enough to encounter this majestic cat in the branches of the sausage trees that dot the banks of the Seronera River.
- Later in the evening you will head to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.
Day 6 Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area
- In the morning after breakfast you will enjoy a final half day in Serengeti before heading the Ngorongoro Conservation area for another game viewing.
- The half day will be spent on the Ngorongoro Highlands.
- The Ngorongoro Highlands are situated within the designated Ngorongoro Conservation Area which protects the land of the area and the traditional Masaai way of life within it. Of course the Crater itself is the main attraction of the Conservation Area, but equally amazing are the highlands that roll on around the Crater.
- This is a vast, undulating volcanic landscape, dotted with craters and lakes and oozing minerals and fertile soil. This area should not be missed on a northern Tanzania safari.
- Late afternoon you will head to your accommodations for the overnight sleep.
Day 7 Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha
- Early in the morning you will descend into the crater for a game sighting.
- Often labelled as 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 600 m tall walls. 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, flamingos, magnificent bird life, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats.
- The Masai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest. Later you will ascend from the crater and head straight through the Arusha City to the Airport. Or an extended accommodation can be arranged for an extra fee.
