Day by Day Overview

We will pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and take you to a very special national park. Tarangire National Park is famous for its diverse landscape with nine different vegetation zones. The park is particularly known for the abundance of ancient baobab trees (the largest trees on the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and of course elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides a unique chance to observe the interaction between elephant families. The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views to the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic).

Note: You can exchange this park with Lake Manyara National Park.

After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous national park in the world, the Serengeti National Park. 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 local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq miles (18,000 sq km) and for most of it the plains 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 while many television scenes such as the famous river crossings have been filmed in this park.

Spend a 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 wake up time. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation then finish with an afternoon game drive. Alternatively, you could spend a full day on a game drive with picnic lunch.

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. It’s really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then we’ll start a drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area while enjoying game viewing along the road.

Masai Boma Cultural Experience Option: You will visit one of the Maasai bomas in Ngorongoro Conservation area where you will get a chance to interact with the Maasai people, singing with them, learning their history, life style and daily economic activities.

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. Ngorongoro Crater is considered one the wonders of the natural world. The crater spreads for 102 sq miles and has 2,000 ft high walls, making it virtually a ‘Noah’s Ark’, home to 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, 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 with huge tusks. After a fantastic afternoon game drive, ascend the crater and return to Arusha town for overnight.
