More than a quarter of Tanzania is covered by national parks, game reserves, and conservation areas, making it among the premier safari destinations in Africa. This safari tour will take you to the Serengeti National Park, which is the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world. Further along your safari journey, you will also be spending game drives at the Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Lake Manyara National Park.
On this safari, you will be provided seven nights of lodge and camping accommodation. On the first night, you will be staying in an accommodation arranged by the organizer at the time of booking. On the second night, you will stay at the Tarangire Wilderness Camp, and on the third night, you will be staying at the Rhino Lodge.

On this day, you will depart for Tarangire National Park, passing through open plains south of Arusha town. During the dry season from May to October, Tarangire National Park has the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem, and its wetlands in the southeast portion of the park support over 300 varieties of birds.
With less tourists than other parks, Tarangire’s rolling savannah dotted with thousands of baobab and acacia trees offer a great chance to enjoy Africa's wilderness and solitude. You will have a full day game drive. Dinner and overnight stay will be at the Tarangire Wilderness Camp.
After breakfast, you will depart for Ngorongoro Crater, passing through the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands before arriving at the rim of the crater. You will then descend into the crater which is one of the most densely crowded game areas in the world, home to nearly 40,000 animals. Here, you will have a good chance of seeing the Big Five: lion, leopard, rare black rhino, buffalo, and elephants. Along with the Big Five, you will also see herds of wildebeest, zebra, and Thomson’s gazelle.
After a picnic lunch, you will continue on your game drive and then depart the crater and arrive at your accommodation just before dusk for dinner and overnight stay at the Rhino Lodge.
On this day, you will descend through the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Highlands en-route to the Serengeti. You will stop at Olduvai Gorge to visit the site where the fossils of a distant ancestor of man, believed to be about 1.8 million years old, were discovered. You will arrive at your accommodation in time for dinner and overnight stay at the Serengeti Wilderness Camp after a game drive through the central Serengeti.
You will have a full day game drive on this day, with a picnic lunch in the Serengeti. The game drive on this day might include a drive along the banks of the Seronera River in search of lions or tracking cheetah through the Gol Kopjes. Dinner and overnight stay will be at the Serengeti Wilderness Camp.
This day’s game drive will take you though the central Serengeti from west to east and back through the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands to the base of the Rift Valley escarpment, a dramatic bluff nearly 2,000 feet high. Here lies a narrow belt of acacia woodland and a floodplain that is filled seasonally by Lake Manyara. Encompassing this area is Lake Manyara National Park, which is often overlooked, but is game rich and is best known for its tree climbing lions.
You will have time for an evening game drive and after dinner, a night drive in the park. Dinner and overnight stay will be at the Kudu Lodge.
After breakfast and a long morning game drive, you will drive back to Arusha having time to shop at some of the curio shops in Makuyuni.
After checking out from an accommodation arranged by the organizer, you will be preparing for your onward flight home.
Included excursion in your safari itinerary is a short stop at the Olduvai Gorge.
This safari will be held at the Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park, and Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania.
Tanzania can truly claim to be the home of safari since the word is Kiswahilli for a journey. There is no better place to enjoy the enriching wildlife experience than Tanzania. The country's game viewing experiences are widely regarded as the best in Africa. Tanzania is the best place to see seemingly endless herds of wildebeest and zebras trekking across the plains on their annual migrations followed by the predators, lion, cheetah, and hyena.
It is also the elephant country, hence boasting some of the largest populations of elephants in the world. In addition, it is home to chimpanzees, now so rarely seen in the wild.
Tanzania boast of beautiful beaches and hundreds of miles of palm-fringed sands. Its lakes are huge and bountiful with fish, its cities are relaxed and friendly, its islands, Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia, live up to their exotic images. Yet this, the largest country in Eastern Africa, is untouched by the holiday making hordes of mass tourism.
The remains of one of the earliest humans were also discovered in Tanzania, so the country can lay claim to the title, "The Cradle of Mankind".
It was in Tanzania that Stanley uttered those famous words, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume," when he tracked down the Scottish explorer after a long trek into the interior. Indeed, Tanzania was a magnet for several Victorian explorers who made epic journeys of discovery in search of the source of the Nile.
The most famous spectacle in the Lake Manyara National Park are 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 kilometers and sanctuary to over 350 species of birds, 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.
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 and is home to up to 25,000 larger mammals, almost half of them zebra and wildebeest.
There are also gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest, and wart hog. Such vast numbers attract predators a plenty, mainly lion and hyena, but also cheetah and leopard. More than 100 species of birds not found in the Serengeti have been spotted here. 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 Eysai bound it in the southwest and the Gol Mountains in the north. Roughly in the center are the Olbalal Swamp and the arid Olduval Gorge.
The Serengeti National Park is arguably the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world. "Serengeti" means "endless plains" in the Maasai 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, the 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.
Also comparatively close to Arusha (120 kilometers away) is the Tarangire National Park, which 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 animals, wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant, hartebeest, buffalo, and fringe eared oryx, migrate from the dry Maasai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water. Lion and other predators follow the herds.
You will be provided three meals a day with hot or cold drinks for breakfast and dinner. The meals include meat dishes, soup, pasta, bread, fruit, and dessert. On a mobile tented safari, meals are served in a dining tent with a large table and chairs. If you have any special menu requests, please let WS Safaris Ltd know so that they may accommodate you.
