Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Enjoy an early morning breakfast before going on an exciting game en route drive to Tarangire National Park, with your packed lunch explore one of Tanzania's secret wildlife havens packed with large populations of elephant, predators, and their fleet-footed kill.

In the afternoon, break for picnic lunch at a picnic site in Tarangire, enjoy your lunch in the bush before embarking back to your game drive.

The ecosystem in Tarangire National Park is balanced by a localized migration pattern that is followed by the majority of game that resides in and around the park. As a result, Tarangire is superb in almost throughout the season of the year. Elephants are the main attraction, with up to 3,000 heads in the park during the peak months. Peak season also sees good numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, Thompson's gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah. The real prizes in the park are dwarf mongoose, oryx and generuk - but viewings are very rare. Tarangire is one of Tanzania's finest birding destinations.

In the evening return back for dinner and overnight as you celebrate your day and prepare for the next big adventure

Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park

After an early morning breakfast, you will go on a game drive en route to Lake Manyara National Park; the park is famous for its unusual tree-climbing lions and the elephant herds it protects.

At the base of the River Valley Escarpment is a small park, Lake Manyara National Park. Unlike the more savanna dominated parks, its ground water forests give you superior change. Lake Manyara National Park is one of Africa’s alkaline water lakes located in the northern side of Tanzania.

Break for your picnic lunch before embarking back for your game adventures exploring the magnificent Lake Manyara and its legendary wildlife.

In the evening take a scenic drive over Lake Manyara Park escarpment and enjoy the sunset as you wind up your second day and so much excitement ahead.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park - Ndutu Area

After breakfast drive from Karatu towards Ngorongoro Ndutu Area. Ndutu Area forms part of the northern section of Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stretches to the un-fenced southern boundaries of the Serengeti National Park, a meeting point between these two incredible wilderness areas.

The best months to visit Ndutu Region are from December, when the great migration herds start to arrive from the north, until April when the millions of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle have trekked northwards again. In the early months of the year - with a peak in February - the wildebeest herds are calving on the lush grassy plains: thousands upon thousands of baby animals are born every day, attracting the attention of cheetah, lion, and hyena.

Break for your picnic lunch and continue with your game drive enjoying the marvelous wildlife around this area

Wind up your evening drive and return for dinner and overnight as you celebrate and get ready for your tomorrow thrilling game drive.

Day 5: Serengeti National Park - Ndutu Area

Early morning wake up to an early morning game drive. The prime game viewing spot in the Ndutu Region is around Lake Ndutu, where enormous herds assemble between December and April to graze and calve. The forests and granite kopjes around Lake Ndutu are also home to lots of game outside of the migration months.

Return for relaxation and leisure at your camp / lodge before catching up for your afternoon game drive. Calving season is particularly dramatic: a million wildebeest give birth to 8000 babies every day, and as these newborns take their first steps, they’re targeted by lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena.

Enjoy your evening drive and the breathtaking sun downer moments before returning back for dinner and overnight.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation area is home to more than 30 000 protected animals. It is an area of spectacular beauty and excellent game viewing, a truly unique safari destination in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world.

After breakfast head off for a full day game drive on the crater floor, abundant with wildlife: here you have teh chance to view black rhino that are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants, big-manned lions stalking the grasslands, and bright pink flamingos crowding the soda lakes.

Enjoy your picnic lunch at the picnic site while viewing the beauty of the crater rim and its outstanding richness in wildlife.

After lunch, go on a game en route ascending the crater floor and driving back to Arusha.

On your way back admire the astonishing view of the Manyara Escarpment with the beauty of Karatu highlands the scenery will blow your mind.

Depending on your flight schedule you can either decide to drive to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your flight back home or continue with your other plans in Arusha. Cheers!

Location

Tarangire National Park

Day after day of cloudless skies. The fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shriveled to a shadow of its wet season self. But it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that here, always, there is water.

  • Size: 2,600 square kilometers.
  • Location: 118 kilometers southwest of Arusha. Getting ther is an easy drive from Arusha or Lake Manyara following a surfaced road to within 7 kilometers of the main entrance gate; can continue on the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. Charter flights from Arusha and the Serengeti are available.
  • What to do: Guided walking safaris. Day trips to Maasai and Barabaig villages, as well as to the hundreds of ancient rock paintings in the vicinity of Kolo on the Dodoma Road.
  • When to go: Year round but dry season (June-September) for sheer number of animals.

Lake Manyara National Park

Stretching for 50 kilometers along the base of the rusty-gold 600-meter high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Earnest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.

  • Size: 330 square kilometers, of which up to 200 square kilometers is the lake when water levels are high.
  • Location: in northern Tanzania. The entrance gate lies 1.5 hours (126 kilometers) west of Arusha along or newly surfaced road, close to the ethnically diverse market town of Mto wa Mbu.
  • Getting there: By road, charter or scheduled fight from Arusha, en route to Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
  • What to do: Game drivers, canoeing when the water level is sufficiently high, cultural tours, mountain bike tours, abseiling and forest walks on the escarpment outside the park.
  • When to go: Dry season (July-October) to see large mammals; wet season (November-June) for bird watching, the waterfalls, and canoeing.

Serengeti National Park

A million wildebeest each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40 kilometer long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north. This trek replenishes the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 kilometer pilgrimage begins again.

  • Size: 14,763 square kilometrs
  • Location: 335 kilometers from Arusha, stretching north to Kenya and bordering Lake Victoria to the west.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th National Wonder of the World’, a visit to the crater is a main draw card for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction.
