Day by Day Overview
We will depart from Arusha in the morning and travel to Tarangire National Park where you can marvel at the colossal termite mounds and the ancient baobab trees. The picturesque scenery and diverse bird life assists in creating the tranquil ambiance of the Tarangire National Park. The great elephant population is a remarkable sight. African elephants are the largest land mammal and adult males can weigh as much as seven tonnes. Tarangire’s varied wildlife includes lions, giraffes, warthogs, ostriches, impalas, cheetah, mongoose, buffaloes and baboons. When your game drive comes to an end, we will take you to Lake Manyara where you will have dinner and overnight.
After an appetizing breakfast we will head off to the Serengeti National Park. We will take the scenic route to the Serengeti which allows us to travel near the Ngorongoro Crater. There is a possibility of spotting game along the way. The endless golden savannah with splotches of colour created by the vegetation and wildlife make it easy to understand why the Serengeti is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. We will stop so that you can enjoy your picnic lunch on a kopje (a small hill in a generally flat area) then proceed further into the Serengeti for a leisurely game drive. You will spend the night in Serengeti at a public campsite.
We will begin our day with an early morning game drive in the central Serengeti. The savannah is an active landscape and the air is flooded with the melodies the birds create as the regenerated sunlight starts to illuminate the full landscape. Your guide will study the prints on the ground to pursue predators. We will then travel to the Ngorongoro Crater. You will have dinner and overnight at a public campsite.
After an early morning breakfast, we will hurry to the Ngorongoro Crater, as it is the best time to spot animals. Enjoy a game drive around the crater and stop for a picnic lunch at a small lake within the park. The lake is home to many hippos and migratory birds while the animal ‘oasis’ created within the crater means there is a high possibility of spotting every member of the Big 5, which comprises the ferocious lion, giant elephant, stealthy leopard, charging rhino and mighty water buffalo. Ngorongoro Crater is truly an amazing place; formed over two million of years ago when a large volcano erupted, collapsing the volcano, but leaving a perfectly unbroken crater, known as a caldera. Within the amazing crater you can expect to view the playful zebra, lumbering hippo, swift wildebeest and cackling hyenas. In addition, there are flocks of graceful flamingos along the Soda Lake, while hungry hawks and vultures circle the sky in search their next meal of discarded carcass. Beautiful storks, ibis, and cranes are popular water birds in the crater, a sight not to miss. After a lovely afternoon of animal sightings, we will start our journey back to Moshi where you stay in a hostel.
Today is the charity day when you will have some interaction with children through home visits, school visits or games and lunch with children at a charity center. The activities today will depend on whether it’s a week day or the weekend.
