Welcome to Tanzania! Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), you will be warmly welcomed by a Wito Africa private vehicle and driver, who will transfer you to your accommodation in Arusha for a pre-safari briefing and overnight stay (dinner upon arrival).

Day 2: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

After a delicious breakfast, your Wito Africa private field guide and vehicle will transfer you to Tarangire National Park for a morning game drive and exploration. Tarangire is known for its massive elephant herds, true sense of wilderness, and backdrop of baobabs.

During your game drives, you will marvel at your first sightings of what is probably one of Africa’s largest populations of elephants, along with Cape buffaloes, impalas, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest who - in addition to some big cats and an abundance of mammal species - call the park their home.

Lunch will be a classic safari picnic within the park, while enjoying a glimpse of the great wilds of Northern Tanzania. In the afternoon, check in to your camp, get settled and enjoy a private sundowner before having your delicious dinner on the patio. Feel free to squeeze in a guided nature walk if you decide to head back to your intimate camp by 3:45 p.m.

  • Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 3: Tarangire National Park to Ngorongoro Crater highlands

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa private guide will greet you at the lodge and take you for another exhilarating morning game drive in this unique, wildlife-filled area of Tarangire. After lunch, you will be transferred in the direction of the Great Rift Valley to the crater highlands, for a taste of culture.

Your guide will take you to a local Maasai village, or perhaps to the FAME Africa Hospital, where you will meet the people who started this local hospital in order to help the people of Tanzania (you could choose to visit a school, orphanage, village, hospital ... whatever most interests you!). In the late afternoon, transfer to the lodge that borders Ngorongoro Crater for relaxation and an overnight stay.

  • Included meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater

After an early breakfast, you will descend with your private safari guide to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, where you will find spectacular scenery (arriving nice and early gives you the best chance of witnessing the predators returning from their overnight hunts) and game viewing in what has been described by UNESCO as the eighth wonder of the world.

Ngorongoro is a collapsed volcano - an incredible natural amphitheater, 25 kilometers across, and teeming with more than 30,000 protected animals, including all members of The Big Five. Depart from the lodge with a picnic so that you can maximize your time in the crater. In the late afternoon, return to your lodge for sundowners and relaxation before your scrumptious dinner.

Appreciate the vastness of this true wilderness with a gentle game drive as you make your way to your luxury tented camp for overnight.

Immerse yourself in your unique surroundings, followed by sundowners and a campfire under the starry African skies, and all capped off by a delicious dinner.

Location

This safari tour will take you from Arusha to Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

Tarangire National Park

A sense of serenity overcomes you almost from the moment you set foot in Tarangire National Park, thanks to the open spaces, strewn with baobab and acacia trees, set against the breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe and the southern mountains. It is the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti, and your game viewing experience will be one-of-a-kind.

Before the rains, hordes of gazelles, wildebeests, zebras, giraffes, impala and buffalo migrate to Tarangire National Park’s scrub plains to graze and drink from the shrinking lagoons, and it also boasts one of the highest population densities of elephants in the whole of Tanzania.

When the rains come, the migratory visitors scatter more widely, but herds of up to 300 elephants are hard to miss in any season! Looking closely into the trees you might spot a python, or even a lion or leopard lounging in the branches.

The green-tinged swamps are home to 550 bird varieties: the most breeding species in a single habitat of anywhere in the world. On drier ground, you can also see the kori bustard (Africa’s heaviest flying bird) and the stocking-thighed ostrich (the world’s largest bird).

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area was founded on a vision to promote conservation, protect the interests of local communities and encourage tourism, combining nature conservation and human development in a unique way.

Its crowning glory is the Ngorongoro Crater, which is the largest un-flooded and unbroken caldera in the world. A spectacular bowl of about 20 kilometers across and 600 meters deep, this cavernous volcanic crater is a breathtaking natural wonder that will leave you speechless.

Standing on the rocky rim and looking down at the crater floor, you have the highest density of wildlife in Africa at your feet. The varied habitat, including grassland, swamps, forests and Lake Makat (Maasai for “salt”), attracts species of all kinds, while you can simply gaze on in wonder.

Most notably, the Ngorongoro Crater gives you one of the best possible chances of seeing the endangered Black Rhino as this protected idyll is one of the few places where they continue to breed and thrive. You might also be lucky enough to see leopards, majestic black-maned lions, and flocks of flamingos.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world and is home to the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. Endless savannah plains, dotted with acacias, meet lush forests and dense bush around the Grumeti River, playing host to one of the oldest ecosystems on earth.

The resident population of lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, crocodiles, wildebeest, zebras and hyenas - not to mention the birds - never disappoints, and with such an unparalleled volume of wildlife, you’re bound to stumble upon something spectacular around every corner.
