Program

Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, you will leave with your driver / guide to Tarangire National Park until sunset game drive. Tarangire National Park covers an area of 2,600 square kilometers and was established in 1970. The park has numerous baobab trees that will primarily catch your attention.

The park derived its name from the Tarangire River that rises in the highlands of Central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary. The river beguilingly lures the herds of plains migrants from the desiccated surrounding area to its shrunken - but permanent - brackish waters during the dry season.

The animals come by thousands from as far north as the shores of Lake Natron to the bank of this river, significantly swelling the resident population with wildebeest, zebra, and eland, elephant, hartebeest, buffalo, and fringe-eared Oryx.

During the dry season, the Tarangire pools are clotted with thirsty migrants, and the elephants begin to dig for underground streams in the dry riverbed. Tarangire National Park is said to have the highest recorded number of breeding bird species for any habitat in the world.

  • Meal plan: Lunch and dinner
  • Accommodation: Lake Burunge Tented Camp

You will get a chance to meet locals and learn about banana beer, Makonde wood carvings, and the tribal painting techniques; the village provides a great introduction to everyday life in Africa. Lunch to be saved from the local family.

After that lunch, you will take a bicycle and ride to Lake Manyara. Here you will walk along the lake and watch flamingoes and cattle drinking. Park your bikes and take a canoe safari at Lake Manyara. This lake gets its water underground from the Great Rift Valley Wall. You will get very close to many species of water birds.

Day 4: Lake Manyara to Lake Natron

After breakfast, depart to Lake Natron. On arrival, visit Lake Natron which is one of the most alkaline lakes in the world. Home to millions of tiny crustaceans, the lake is a haven for thousands of lesser flamingos and it is one of the most important flamingo breeding grounds on earth. The area around the lake is dry and desolate. The strangely beautiful landscape is the attraction in this area.

After a strenuous walk up the stream, you will reach the source of the river in the cascading waterfalls that gush out of the mountains. It is an excellent swim in the river and under the waterfalls for a nice cool-down from the hot sun. There may be baboons or other wildlife in the gorge

  • Accommodation: Moivaro Safari Lodge

Day 5: Full day Lake Natron and Maasai visit

Day 7: Northern Serengeti and Mara River

After breakfast, enjoys a full day game drive in the Wagakuria area. Resident wildlife numbers are exceptionally high in the Wagakuria area, with prides of lions up to 30 strong, however, from July to October the area turns into a wildlife paradise. The key feature is the Mara River and it is not uncommon to see the herds cross the Mara River north on one day and then back south a few days later.

Please take note that to actually finding a crossing is very difficult and is sometimes a matter of luck. A herd can be seen next to the river and only decide to cross or not cross until a couple of days later. This area is a stunning region with kopjes, woodland, riverine vegetation, and open plains, similar to Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve.

  • Meal plan: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  • Accommodation: Kati Kati Mara Tented Camp

Day 8: Center Serengeti (Seronera)
