Day by Day Overview

We depart from your lodge in Arusha and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park and the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the ground water forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore and the soda lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands, and steep mountain sides. Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise with more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions.

Dinner and overnight at Nsya Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive in Ngorongoro, we have a chance to glimpse something of the Masai way of life. After stopping at the entrance gate, where you can learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the crater itself where we can look down and see the herd of wildebeest or buffalo. Finally, we descend into the crater where the walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals so there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. In the late afternoon, we travel back to our special lodge.

Dinner and overnight at Rhino Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

We proceed to Olduvai Gorge, known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’. It was here, in the Great Rift Valley, that the remains of early hominids dating back 2 million years were uncovered. Afterwards, we visit the most famous wildlife sanctuary in the world – Serengeti National Park. The word ‘Serengeti’ means ‘endless plains’, which describes the park’s 5,600 square mile boundary. Yet for its sprawling area, the Serengeti does not disappoint when it comes to rich game-viewing. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth.

Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

We embark on another game drive in the expansive Serengeti National Park. An optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti can be added for $500 per person. The Serengeti boasts one of the most varied collections of wildlife on the planet. Annually, from May to December, millions of animals embark on a migration which brings them from central Serengeti to Kenya’s Masai Mara and back again in an incredible spectacle. Even during the ‘down-time’, vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle roam here, along with groups of elephant, giraffe and buffalo, as well as the lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas, and jackals which stalk their meals.

Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

Today you’ll experience the culture and traditions of the local Maasai on the way from Serengeti to Tarangire National Park. Your local guide will show you a Maasai Boma and explain the way the Maasai live in the conservation area. After a short visit in the Maasai boma, we will drive straight to Tarangire National Park.

Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Roika Tented Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

After breakfast, we depart from your lodge and proceed to Tarangire National Park. This park is one of Africa’s little-known gems and should be on the itinerary of all lovers of wilderness and solitude. We stay overnight inside the park at Tarangire Safari Lodge.

Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge: Bed, dinner, breakfast and lunch

We begin early in the morning at 6:00 am before the sun rises. Go on a game drive from 6:00 am until 8:30 am, which is considered prime viewing time, then return to Tarangire Safari Lodge for breakfast and check out. Continue with our game viewing until we head back to Arusha. The viewing time will depend upon the time of your departure flight. We can drop you off at Arusha or Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO).
