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 to come. Ilboru Safari Lodge is an oasis of calm and aesthetic pleasure.

Accommodation: Ilboru Safari Lodge
Meals Plan: Bed & Breakfast

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 accommodation for dinner and overnight

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. After an extensive game drive, you will drive to your accommodation where you will enjoy dinner and an overnight stay.

In the morning, you set off on a game drive to the northern region of the Serengeti, which is far from the park’s main entry point in the south hence receives fewer visitors. Stretching from Seronera for about 100km, the northern Serengeti is gentle rolling countryside broken by small rivers, occasional hills, kopjes and striking geological features such as the beautiful Lobo Kopje. A wide-ranging permanent population of wildlife lives here while the migration is found in this area from late July to October. With luck you’ll witness the most spectacular river crossings as the herds attempt to cross the Mara River and avoid the strong currents and hungry crocodiles. After a full day, we head for our tented lodge where we enjoy dinner and a night in a tent under the magnificent African sky.

After an early breakfast, you will head out to make the most of the day. There is a chance you may see the animals crossing the Mara River. Hundreds of thousands of desperate wildebeest gather together on the banks of the river, gazing wistfully across the turbulent water at the green grass on the other side but not one animal will make a move. All it takes is one brave wildebeest to take the literal plunge and then, all follow! The animals that do successfully avoid the awaiting crocodile jaws and make it over the river are rewarded with the lush green grazing grass of the Masai Mara.

After breakfast, you will return to Seronera with further opportunities to experience the incredible wildlife and natural beauty of the Serengeti National Park.

After breakfast you will embark upon another incredible game drive in the Serengeti before travelling to the Ngorongoro Crater. Arriving at the edge of the crater in the afternoon, you will have your first glimpse of what awaits you the following day – glistening streams, open grassland and an infinite number of animals. You will spend the night at a nearby lodge.

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Serena Lodge

Very early in the morning after an early breakfast, we descend down onto the crater floor for a day of wildlife viewing in one of the most incredible places on Earth where the animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering us an uninterrupted game viewing experience. The caldera was formed about three million years ago with the massive explosion of a volcano that rivalled Kilimanjaro in height. It is 610 m deep and covers roughly 260 square kilometres. It is an enclosed ecosystem. The word Ngorongoro represents the sound of the bells that the Maasai cows wear around their necks. It is one of the best places in Africa to view the big five, as well as wildebeest, gazelle, reedbuck, and many others, along with about 500 bird species. You will stop for a picnic lunch near the hippo lake and in the afternoon you will ascend up the steep road out of the crater. You will overnight in the nearby town of Karatu.

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 lunch, we head back to Arusha where we will arrive in the late afternoon to mark the end of your safari..
