2 travelers
What to Expect
Day 1 Tarangire

After breakfast, your safari guide will collect you from your accommodation and drive you to Tarangire National Park (approximately 2 hours). Tarangire is best known for its elephant families, savannah, iconic baobab trees, seasonal swamps and the life-giving Tarangire River. Animals gather at the river and giraffes, bushbuck and hartebeest are often seen. The Park is also home to buffalo, zebra and wildebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators such as lions and leopards. From the open roof of the vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the wildlife.

After a full day in the park, you will drive to your accommodation, where you will be able to relax, enjoy dinner and spend the night.

Accomodation: Mid-range Lodge

Day 2 Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti

After an early breakfast, you will head towards the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera. It is almost 20km wide, approximately 600 m deep and is known for its large variety of wildlife. In addition to the Big Five, the various springs attract animals such as wildebeest, gazelles, reedbucks and more than 500 bird species. At approximately 2:00 p.m. you will head towards the Serengeti, arriving at your accommodation at roughly 6:00 p.m. The Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania with diverse landscapes and habitats, such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah and mountains.

Accomodation: Mid-range Lodge

Day 3 Serengeti to Karatu

You will enjoy another early breakfast and set off on your game drive at about 6:30 a.m., spending 6-7 hours exploring this incredible Park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impalas, buffalo, crocodiles and hippos, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebras and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. Apart from the migrating herds, you may see predators, such as leopards, cheetahs and lions. At roughly 2:00 p.m. you will head back towards Karatu, arriving in time for dinner.

Accomodation: Mid-range Lodge

Day 4 Lake Manyara National Park to Arusha

After breakfast, you will make the short drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara is a relatively small but diverse park, 120km west of Arusha. The park’s namesake is a shallow, salt lake. It covers a large area of the park, flooding and drying with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species.

On your exploration of the park you will see monkeys, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes; not only open grassy plains, but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs.

You will return to Arusha after lunch
