Program

Day 1: Moshi | Springlands Hotel

Arrive at Kilimanjaro airport. After clearing customs, look for your driver. They will be waiting for you, holding a sign with your name. Your driver will transport you to Moshi.

  • Overnight at Springlands Hotel or similar (with breakfast)

Day 2: Tarangire | Highview Hotel

Drive to Tarangire National Park in the morning. The place is traversed by the Tarangire River, which never dries up completely. Being the only source of water during the dry season, it draws hundreds of animals to the park, making wildlife and bird viewing spectacular. The landscape is varied, with grassy savanna plains, swamps, hills, and spectacular baobabs. Enjoy a full day in the park with game viewing.

  • Overnight at Highview Hotel or similar(with lunch, dinner, and breakfast)

Day 3: Ngorongoro | Ngorongoro Wild Camp

Enjoy a morning game drive enroute to Ngorongoro Crater, then descend into the crater for game driving and exploration. It is 600 m deep, 16 km across, and 265 sq km in area. Enjoy the spectacular scenery and game viewing in what has been described as the world's Eighth Wonder.

Many of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhinos can be seen grazing on the open grassland of the crater floor, surrounded by some of the 20,000 large animals that occupy the crater, including lion, cheetah, eland, zebra, and gazelle. Meanwhile, flamingos, among other bird species, can often be seen feeding at Makat Soda Lake.

You'll then have an afternoon drive to your lodge for your overnight stay.

  • Overnight at Ngorongoro Wild Camp or similar (with lunch, dinner, and breakfast)

Day 4: Serengeti | Ngorongoro Wild Camp

After a delicious breakfast, the day will start with an early game drive in Ndutu area.

Most people know about the “Great Migration” from nature programs that capture some of the most thrilling moments on film. Often misunderstood, the migration is a perpetual, year-round process involving over one million wildebeest and 200,000 zebras who roam the plains quietly, in search of food and water.

While some antelope and hyena may follow the herds, other animals remain in their territories or have separate migratory patterns. The migration’s most dramatic moments often occur when large numbers of wildebeest and zebra make river crossings, during which they must elude predators in a desperate fight for survival.

There is no telling exactly when these highly dramatic movements will occur, but all safari goers are sure to see plenty of wildebeest and zebra while in Tanzania.

Late in the evening, you will be driven back, then enjoy an exclusive night and dinner at Ngorongoro Wild Camp.

  • Overnight at Ngorongoro Wild Camp or similar (with lunch, dinner, and breakfast)

Day 5: Ngorongoro | Highview Hotel

After a delicious breakfast, you'll have the opportunity for a drive around Lake Eyasi proper. While this shallow soda lake is not home to the same variety of wildlife that you'll find in a national park, you'll have the chance to spot a variety of bird and mammal life.

You'll also have time to meet with the Datoga people. Mostly farmers and cattle breeders, these fascinating people offer another insight into tribal life in Tanzania. Lake Eyasi is the perfect destination for you to see flamingos, pelicans, spoonbills, weavers, spurfowls, storks, barbets, egrets, and more.

The visits will include meeting the Hadzabe people and spending the day observing their ways. They are an indigenous tribe known as the hunter-gatherer bushmen. Visit their homesteads and learn more about their lifestyle.

Hunting in groups with bows and arrows, this tribe is able to survive with what the environment provides. The bushmen also treat diseases with their own medicines. They speak the unique click language.

Once your day's activities are complete, you'll make your way to Karatu town for an overnight stay.

  • Overnight at Highview Hotel or similar (with lunch, dinner, and breakfast)

Day 6: Lake Manyara | Springlands Hotel

On this morning, you will drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Set against the steep escarpment of the Rift Valley, you’ll find the park with its evergreen groundwater forest and variety of ecosystems, including acacia woodland, grassy plains, a swampy fan delta, and of course, the expansive lake.

This diversity attracts a wide variety of mammal, bird, and wildlife species. Manyara is also home to rare tree-climbing lions. Additionally, the park offers excellent game viewing, with buffalo, impala, giraffe, bushbuck, waterbuck, hippos, and lots of elephants that roam near the lake.

Also look out for blue monkeys, vervet monkeys, and the very active olive baboon troops. Lake Manyara is even more of an absolute delight with the huge variety of birds on display in the park. Even the novice can expect to be amazed by large flamingo flocks, circling birds of prey, and the brightly colored lilac breasted roller.

  • Overnight at Springlands Hotel or similar (with lunch, dinner, and breakfast)

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park covers 330 sq km (127 sq mi), 70% of which is lake. Along its western boundaries is the Rift Valley’s western wall.

The park is famous for its birdlife - almost 400 different species - and for its elephant population and tree-climbing lions, that have a large variety of tree species to choose from. The short game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.

Serengeti

The largest national park in Tanzania and one of the most spectacular parks in the world, the Serengeti covers 14,763 square kilometers (5,700 sq mi), including large plains, short grass plains, kopjes, and lakes. The name “Serengeti” is derived from the Maasai language, meaning “endless plain.”

Every year, more than a million wildebeest travel in long caravans across the plains of the mighty Serengeti, all in search of better feeding grounds, followed by a large variety of other animals.

Not far behind follow hungry lions, cheetahs, and hyenas. Other predators such as leopards, serval cats, and jackals watch the wandering game with interest, while elephants, rhinos, and buffalo continue their grazing.

Ngorongoro

One of nature’s true wonders and a photographer’s paradise, Ngorongoro is the largest intact crater in the world, covering 265 square kilometers (102 sq mi).

The 2,000-foot deep crater is home to an abundance of wild game, including elephants, rhinos, cheetahs, lions, leopards, hyenas, serval cats, jackals, bushbacks, elands, waterbucks, wildebeest, many antelope, and a large variety of birds. It is a sight that you will always remember!
