Day 1: Game Drive to Tarangire National Park

Your driver guide will come to your hotel and pick you up after breakfast and brief you of your safari.

Continue to Tarangire National Park and check in to your luxury camp where your lunch will be ready.

Afternoon game drive in the park

Tarangire National Park extends over some 2,600 sq km (1,615 square miles) in the Rift Valley. Arid and studded with giant termite mounds, it is here that you can witness massive herds of elephant with some reaching as many as 500. During the dry season the park becomes a haven for many migratory species and this is the best time to see animals as they cluster around various water sources. When the rains arrive, the animals become more widely distributed once more and the region’s swamps are alive with bird life. The many herds of elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, impala, gazelle and eland feast on the green shoots, eventually depleting them and being forced to return to the river systems once more.

Day 3: Game Drive in Lake Manyara National Park

Morning drive to Lake Manyara National park for game viewing

Lake Manyara National Park is small compared to Tanzania’s other parks. At only 330 km2 it fits neatly into the Great Rift Valley, it is the real Cinderella of Tanzania parks. This park is often overlooked and underrated but this gem was described by Ernest Hemingway as ‘the loveliest place I have ever seen’. The shallow alkaline lake is often covered by resident flamingos and whatever the park lacks in size it makes up for in diversity. Apart from the lake and the many lions that roam the park, there is an expanse of tropical jungle filled with troops of baboons and other occupants of the rainforest. Large herds of buffalos and zebras wander on the plains and in the distance are the ever present jagged peaks of volcanoes.

Local lunch at Mto Wa Mbu Village and head on to central Serengeti Via Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority. After entering the park, you will continue with game drive en route to your lodge.

Ndutu is located at the northern area of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where it shares biodiversity with the Serengeti National Park in the southern part. It has all the features of the Serengeti and here is when about a million wildebeest are giving birth to offspring after their migration cycle from North and Masai Mara and at this time of the season you will find the highest concentration of carnivores and herbivores in one area at close proximity.

Check in to your Lodge and you are showed your rooms before sitting for dinner.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater is a deep, volcanic crater, the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world, measuring about 20 kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq kms in area. The high walls of the crater itself, serve as a natural enclosure for an abundance of wildlife. There is a large resident population of varied ground game with the very real chance of you being able to see the “big five’.  Among the notable birds are Lammergeyer, Verreaux’s Eagle and Egyptian Vulture, which make their home in the highest of the crater wall, the beautiful Rosy-breasted Longclaw, which appears on the plains after rains and flocks of lesser and Greater Flamingos which are spasmodic visitors to the crater lakes.
