Known for its stunning scenic views and its Ngurdoto Crater, Arusha National Park will give you a good introduction to the thrilling family adventures of the northern safari circuit. At the Momella Gate, an armed ranger will be waiting to accompany you on your walking safari, which will give you the chance to experience the wildlife up close.

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa safari guide will greet you at the lodge and transfer you 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.

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. You will enjoy the next two nights in this amazing, secluded area of the park, viewing African wildlife by day and enjoying the calls of the animals from the comforts of your intimate luxury camp at night.

Day 8: Ndutu to Kilimanjaro and beyond

Location

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

Arusha National Park

A popular day trip from Arusha, before embarking on your main safari circuit, this small national park offers a calm and quiet space for enjoying the richness of Tanzanian wildlife. At a laid-back pace, you can take the time to look up into the canopy and spot the acrobatics of the rare black and white colobus monkeys, as well as playful blue monkeys, and the dazzling colors of turacos and trogons.

If the three-day trek up Mount Meru isn’t for you, you can enjoy a relaxing exploration of its lower slopes, along trails that wind around crystal clear mountain streams and cascading waterfalls. The tranquil greens and blues of the Momela Lakes often provide a backdrop for thousands of vibrant flamingos, as well as a rich diversity of migrant waterfowl, and both giraffes and zebras graze on the grassy hills.

There may be no lions to see here, and elephants are uncommon, but you might be lucky enough to see some elegant leopards and spotted hyenas in the early morning and late afternoon.

The slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mount Meru dominate this small park, as well as lush highland forests of ancient fig trees. When the clouds clear on the eastern horizon, you might even get a glimpse of the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro.

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.
