The landscape of Savannah, seasonal swamps and giant baobab trees is home to Masai giraffes, buffaloes, hartebeest, eland, fringe-eared oryx, the weird-looking long-necked gerenuk and over 550 species of birds. But it is the elephants, Tarangire is famous for and the park, where herds of up to 300 animals roam, is probably one of the best places in East Africa to see them and to get close to these giant creatures. After an extensive game drive, then drive to Country Lodge / Twiga Lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, drive to Serengeti National Park with a packed lunch, while traveling through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you might stop for a breath-taking view over the Ngorongoro Crater before continuing to the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the language of the Maasai and you will see the grassland savannah stretching to the horizon. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. Depending on the season you will witness the migration of thousands of animals for which this park is famous for. You will arrive at your campsite for dinner and overnight Angani Tented Lodge in the central Serengeti in the late afternoon after a game drive through the central Serengeti.

The Serengeti is also home to the Big Five - lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard - and today, you might be able to see all the members of this group. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater, the caldera opens up before you. Over 25,000 animals live in this approximately 20 kilometers wide crater. You will spend the night and dinner at a Rhino Lodge directly on the crater’s edge with fantastic views over the caldera.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater – Manyara

You might also see buffaloes, spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an intensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and drive to Country Lodge / Twiga Lodge (near Manyara Park) for dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Lake Manyara National Park - Arusha

After breakfast, you will drive to the smaller Lake Manyara National Park with a packed lunch. The park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests and grassy plains.

Location

Tarangire National Park

Comparatively close to Arusha (120 kilometers away), Tarangire National Park gets its name from the river that threads its way through the length of the reserve. It is famous for its dense wildlife population, which is most spectacular between June and October, the dry period. During this time, thousands of animal's - wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant, hartebeest, buffalo and fringe-eared oryx - migrate from the dry Masai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water. Lion and other predators follow the herds.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is arguably the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world. "Serengeti" means "endless plains" in the Masai language, and within its boundaries are more than three million large mammals. About 35 species of plains animals can be seen here including the so-called "big five" - elephant, rhino, lion (more than 2,000 of them), leopard and buffalo.

In May or early June, huge herds of wildebeest, gazelle, and zebra begin their spectacular migrations. In their wake follow the predators; lion, cheetah and hunting dogs with vultures circling overhead. Other common species found here include hippo, giraffe, eland, impala and other antelope types, baboons, monkeys and a profusion of almost 500 bird species.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater, at 2,286 meters above sea level, is the largest unbroken caldera in the world. Surrounded by very steep walls rising 610 meters from the crater floor, this natural amphitheater covers an area of about 260 square kilometers - that's 100 square miles - and is home to up to 25,000 larger mammals, almost half of them are zebra and wildebeest.

There are also gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest, and warthog. Such vast numbers attract predators plenty, mainly lion and hyena but also cheetah and leopard. More than 100 species of birds not found in the Serengeti have been spotted there. Countless flamingos form a pink blanket over the soda lakes.

The crater has been declared a World Heritage Site. The Ngorongoro Crater lies within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which covers more than 8,000 square kilometers Lake Eisai bound it in the Southwest and the Gol Mountains in the north. Roughly in the center are the Olbalal Swamp and the arid Olduvai Gorge.

Lake Manyara National Park

The most famous spectacle in the Lake Manyara National Park is the tree-climbing lions which spend most of the day spread out along the branches of Acacia trees six to seven meters above the ground. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is noted for its incredible beauty. As visitors enter the gate they pass into the lush forest, home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys.

Further along, the forest opens up into woodlands, grassland, swamps and beyond, the soda lake itself, covering 390 square meters and sanctuary to over 350 species of bird including flamingo, pelican, storks, sacred ibis, cormorants, and Egyptian goose. The park is also noted for its numerous buffalo, elephant, giraffe, impala, hippo, and a great variety of smaller animals.
