Day by Day Overview

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), where there will be a safari driver waiting at the airport to transfer you to Moivaro Coffee Lodge in Arusha. The rest of the day is at leisure. Moivaro Coffee Lodge is beautifully located on a coffee farm and is the perfect place to prepare for your safari adventure. We will gather in the hotel for a pre-safari briefing and an equipment check.

Dinner and overnight at Moivaro Coffee Lodge: Half board

We depart from Moivaro Coffee Lodge and head to Arusha National Park. Here we view the herds of buffalo in the spectacular Ngurdoto Crater, flamingos of the Momela Lakes and the imposing peak of rugged Mount Meru. Arusha National Park houses a variety of wildlife, including giraffe, zebra, colobus monkey, leopard and hyena, in the park’s small but bustling 53 square miles of natural habitats. Enjoy a picnic lunch while gazing at the rolling hills and wooded savannahs of this national treasure. At the end of the day we return to the lodge in Arusha.

Today we drive to Tarangire National Park, a small park which offers some fantastic game viewing. In the dry season Tarangire comes alive as wildlife and birdlife congregate on the Tarangire River, which is a permanent source of water. We spend the night in our lodge beautifully set outside the park with stunning views and a unique atmosphere.

Dinner and overnight at Acacia Farm Lodge: Full board

This morning you drive to Lake Manyara National Park for a full day of game viewing. This is one of Tanzania’s smaller parks but still offers a rewarding and diverse safari experience. The lake shore at Manyara teems with bird life and while you are looking for the birds, you might also spot one of the elusive tree-climbing lions. There are a surprising number of other large mammals and the striking cliffs on the Rift Escarpment form a dramatic backdrop. In the late afternoon, we make a short journey to our special tented camp.

Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Camp: Full board

Head towards the Serengeti National Park with the opportunity en route to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep-sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. There is a small museum where you can see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years. After lunch we drive into the Serengeti itself and the rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje. In December, January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, and many large predators such as lion, cheetah and leopard. We return to our special tented camp for the night.

We have another full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, be in the middle of the migration, sometimes surrounded by wildebeest, sometimes by zebras, which travel with the wildebeest. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes,  these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals and from the top we can look out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain games; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions, and if you are lucky the elusive leopard and cheetah, as well as huge amounts of interesting birdlife, from the elegant secretary birds to the flightless ostrich. We return to our special tented camp for the night.

Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Camp: Full board

We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which differs from a national park in that it’s an area 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 there is a chance to learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the Crater itself, and from here 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, which means 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 just outside of Ngorongoro Conservation Area to our special tented camp.

Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Kirurumu Tented Camp: Full board

Free morning to relax after your great northern safari or explore Arusha town, especially Maasai market. The return transfer to Kilimanjaro (JRO) after your safari is part of this package.
