Day by Day Overview

You will be picked up from the airport by a Lion King representative and conveyed to your accommodation in Arusha where you will overnight, relax and prepare for the adventures ahead. Gran Melia Arusha is an oasis of calm and aesthetic pleasure.

Accommodation: Grand Melia Lodge
Meals Plan: Full Board

In the morning you will be collected from your lodgings in Arusha by your private safari guide. You will drive to Tarangire National Park on a good tarmac road across gently rolling Masai plains with scattered acacia trees. On the way, you will pass many Masai in their colourful dress walking along the roadside, riding bicycles, herding cattle and driving donkey carts. Tarangire National Park, well known for its large elephant herds, is also host to a multitude of other animals. From the open roof of your safari jeep you will see seasonal swamps, savanna and the life giving Tarangire River as well as  zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and giraffe, to name but a few. It is possible you will see lion stalking prey or leopards watching, relaxing in the trees above. After your extensive game drive, you will head to your lodge for a delicious dinner and an overnight stay in a lovely room.

After breakfast, you will drive to our final destination on this epic safari – Lake Manyara National Park. This relatively small but diverse park, 120km west of Arusha, takes its name from the shallow salt lake that covers some seventy percent of the surface area, flooding and drying with the seasons and home to thousands of flamingo as well as around an impressive 500 other bird species. On your exploration of the park you will see monkey, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and, with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes; not only open grassy plains, but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After another memorable game drive we head to our lodge in Karatu.

Accommodation: Kitela Lodge

After breakfast, you continue towards the fertile highlands where wheat and corn are grown by the Iraqw people. Along the way passing through the mist-shrouded rainforests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where you might be lucky enough to see baboons or even leopards and elephants in the dense undergrowth. You will also be able to see the breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater before travelling onwards to the Serengeti National Park, which you will reach by midday. The Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania with diverse landscapes and habitats, such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah and mountains. Here the great migration of wildebeest, zebra and antelope takes place and, depending on the season, we may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals on their search for food and water. After an extensive game drive, we drive to the Seronera Valley for an evening meal and overnight stay at Serengeti Heritage Tented Camp. Newly renovated, with tents raised on wooden decks, a beautiful buffet dining tent, musicians and a fire on the plain.

Accommodation: Serengeti Heritage Tented Camp
Meals Plan: Full Board

This entire day is set aside for game drives in the Serengeti National Park, the habitat of an abundance of wildlife such as impala, buffalo, crocodile and hippo. It’s well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra, antelope and wildebeest. The migration is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. In November and December the animals move from the northern region, dominated by woodlands and hills, to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return to the north. Apart from the migrating herds, we may have the opportunity to see the resident predators, including leopard, cheetah and lion, fulfilling their role in the circle of life. After an unforgettable day, we will return to The Serengeti Heritage Tented Camp for relaxation, dinner and overnight on the ‘Endless Plain’.

After breakfast you will head out on a game drive through the Serengeti. You might be able to spot the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – before embarking on your journey to Ngorongoro Crater. This UNESCO World Heritage site, formed millions of years ago, is 600 m deep and covers roughly around 260 square kilometres. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25,000, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. You will arrive at the crater rim before lunch, descend down into the Crater and very quickly you will be able to see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant as well as some of the 500 bird species in the area. With a little bit of luck you might catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass. After lunch and a full afternoon inside the crater, you will head to your accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay.

Accommodation: Kitela Lodge
Meals Plan: Full Board

You will be picked up from your accommodation and be driven straight to the airport which marks the end of your epic adventure.
