Program

Day 1: Arrival

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), you will meet Seven Wonders Safaris' representative and after a short briefing, you will be taken to your hotel to relax after your long flight. The drive from the airport to the lodge will take almost an hour. The overnight stay will be at Tulia Hotel & Spa

Day 2: The soda lake (Lake Manyara National Park)

After breakfast, drive west on a good tarmac road, across the gently rolling Maasai plains with scattered acacia trees. En route, you pass many Maasai bomas and Maasai in their colorfully traditional dress walking on the roadside, riding bicycles, herding their cattle, and driving overloaded donkey carts.

After a two-hour drive, you will arrive in Mto Wa Mbu where you will do your walking with your local guide from the area. The walk will take you through the rice fields, banana farms, Makonde carving, where you can get your ebony wood carving, and finish with a visit of a local beer brew. Your local lunch will be at Mto Wa Mbu.

After lunch, drive to Manyara park for an afternoon game drive. The first habitat will be the underground forest with water seeping from the rift valley escarpment. There is a great sighting of hippos, elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, zebras, blue monkeys, and baboons. Dinner and overnight will be at Flamingo Safari Lodge.

Day 3: Endless plain (Serengeti National Park)

After breakfast, you will take a picnic lunch with you and drive west across the gentle rolling Ngorongoro highlands. En route, you pass zebras and wildebeests grazing with the Maasai cattle and young boys tending them, and Maasai villages (Bomas).

You will stop at Oldupai Gorge, a site of many archaeological discoveries including the estimated 1.7-million-year-old Zinjanthropus boisei fossil. A small museum overlooks the gorge itself and a guide there will tell you the story of the Leakey’s research and findings.

Afterward, proceed to Serengeti and stop at the Nabi gate for lunch. In the afternoon, you will be doing your game drive in the central Serengeti with great sighting of lions, hippos, giraffes, leopards, reedbucks, and elephants. Dinner and overnight will be at Serengeti Mawe Tented Camp.

Day 4: Simba Kopjes (Serengeti - Ngorongoro)

After breakfast, you will have a short morning drive in the outer part of central Serengeti trying to look for more cats and hunting predators before crossing to the Ngorongoro and visit a Maasai village to enjoy the living culture since most of the other cultures are dead or dying. Apart from their culture, you will visit a kindergarten and if you have any school supplies, it’s the right place to give them. Dinner and overnight will be at Rhino Lodge.

Day 5: Exciting big tusker safari

After a very early breakfast, leave the lodge and descend down to the eighth wonder with possibly the largest permanent concentration of wildlife in Africa, with an estimated average of 30,000 large mammals. In addition, this is one of the best reserves in Africa to see black rhinos. Other sightings include lions, hyenas, jackals, hippos, buffaloes, elephants, zebras, and wildebeests. After lunch, drive back to Arusha.

Once arrived in Arusha, it will depend on your flight schedule. If possible, Seven Wonders Safaris will drop you at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) (this will depend much if you have a late flight, maybe from the late evening or at night because you will be in Arusha from the crater around 17:00) or you will spend another night in Arusha. it's the end of the service.
