Day by Day Itinerary

Day 1 -Day 1 - Tarangire National Park

You will be picked up from the airport/Arusha by your driver-guide and drive to Tarangire for a full day game drive. You will spend overnight at the lodge/camp.

Tarangire National Park Descriptions:

The Park Located slightly off the main safari route, Tarangire National Park is a lovely quiet park in Northern Tanzania that is most famous for its elephant migration, birding and quiet authentic safari atmosphere. The majority of travelers to the region either miss out Tarangire altogether or venture into the park for a matter of hours leaving parts of Tarangire virtually untouched. The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees and tree climbing lions. Visitors to the park can expect to see any number of residential zebras and wildebeests in addition to the less common animals. Other common animals include waterbuck, giraffe, and olive baboons.

Accommodation

Acacia Tarangire Luxury Camp

You will have breakfast at the camp and depart after breakfast for Serengeti National Park via the Ndutu area where you will see the great migration.

Serengeti National Park Descriptions:

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th worldwide wonder. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

Inclusion

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation

Acacia Seronera Luxury Camp

After breakfast follows a full game drive in the central Serengeti, home of big cats, lions, leopard, and cheetahs. You will have a picnic lunch and in the evening goes back to the camp for a campfire, shower and overnight stay.

Serengeti National Park Description:

A million wildebeests, each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km (25 mile) long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again.

Inclusion

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation

Acacia Seronera Luxury Camp

After breakfast, depart Serengeti drive to Ngorongoro for the game drive in the Ngorongoro crater. Late in the afternoon, you will drive back to the lodge.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area Description:

The jewel in Ngorongoro’s crown is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world. About 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq km in area, the Ngorongoro Crater is a breathtaking natural wonder. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here.

Ngorongoro Farm House Lodge

We depart for a morning game drive at the Lake Manyara National Park, with picnic lunch. In the evening, we drive to Arusha to drop you off to your hotel booked by your own arrangements.

Lake Manyara National Park Descriptions:

Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants.
