All of our safaris are private, ensuring that you will get the most out of your experience in Tanzania.
Day 1: Tarangire National Park
After breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel by the driver/guide and drive to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire is well known for its large elephant herds. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will experience the seasonal swamps, savanna, and Tarangire River in search of many animals including zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and giraffe. It’s possible that you will catch a glimpse of a lion stalking its prey or leopards watching and relaxing in the trees above. After a full day in the park, you will drive to the camp, where you will be able to relax and enjoy dinner and have an overnight.
Day 2: Tarangire National Park to Serengeti National Park
After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous National parks in the World, the Serengeti. The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in the local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq. miles (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and all kinds of antelopes. As for Big Cats and large predators, it’s the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings having been filmed in this park. After the game drive, you will return back to Seronera campsite/rest house.
Day 3: Serengeti National Park
Full day in the Serengeti National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. On every day of the safari, your guide will discuss with you the best timings for you, including the game drives and the waking up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the amp/lodge for lunch and relaxation and finish with an afternoon game drive, or you could do a full-day game drive with a picnic lunch. After the game drive, you will return back to Seronera campsite/rest house.
Day 4: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro crater
On this day we suggest a very early wake-up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. After the game drive, we return to the camp/ lodge for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonders of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft. high walls, making it virtually Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, and a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest, and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which, are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World. Later in the evening, you will drive to the campsite in Ngorongoro for an overnight.
Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Manyara National Park
We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful Hippo Lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Lake Manyara National Park. After a full day game drive, you will drive to the campsite for overnight.
Day 6: Lake Manyara National Park to Arusha City
Pick up from your hotel/ lodge/ campsite early morning and start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley for a full day game drive. The park has breathtaking scenery and well famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as to a growing population of baboons and blue then drive back to arusha.
