Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park

In the morning you will start your safari with a drive to the Tarangire National Park. The park is roughly

the size of Luxemburg and covers an area of about 2,600 km². Bush savannah, seasonal swamps and

giant baobab trees make up the landscape of this nature reserve and the park is probably one of the

best places in East Africa to see elephants. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to

watch them and absorb the landscape. Apart from elephants, the park is also home to Masai giraffes,

various gazelles, antelopes, buffaloes, lions, leopards, baboons and more than 500 types of birds. After

an extensive game drive you will leave the park in the afternoon and drive to the

Maramboi Tented Camp for your overnight stay.

Lunch; Dinner

Day 2 Tarangire Area – Lake Manyara National Park

Today you will visit the small but beautiful Lake Manyara National Park. A large area of the park is

covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, which is home to colonies of flamingos and other water birds.

Apart from giraffes, hippos, wildebeests and impalas on the grassy plains, you might see lions lounging

in the trees and elephants feeding on the acacias in the woodlands. While the forest near the lake is

filled with noisy troops of blue monkeys, extended baboon families hang around the roads. In the

afternoon, you will make your way to the Kirurumu Manyara Lodge. Set high on the edge of the Great

Rift Valley, the lodge offers fantastic views.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 3 Lake Manyara Area – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you will continue to the lush highlands where crops such as wheat, corn and coffee are

grown. Travelling through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you might stop for a breath-taking view

over the Ngorongoro Crater before you continue to the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti means

“endless plains” in the language of the Masai and you will see the grassland savannah stretching to the

horizon. Bizarre rock formations dot the grassy landscape where predators roam. Blue wildebeests,

Thomson’s gazelles, zebras and buffaloes are on their menu... Through the high and open roof of the

safari vehicle you will be able to enjoy the diversified habitats and landscapes of the park. You will

arrive in the Seronera Valley for an evening meal and overnight stay at the Kati Kati Tented Camp.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 4 Serengeti National Park

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you will

visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are to be found. Predators usually follow closely

behind the trekking animals. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds

move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to

June they return up north. As the migration depends upon the yearly rains, the location of the herds

might vary from year to year but your guide will know where to see them best. You will spend another

night at the Kati Kati Tented Camp

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5 Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast you will join another game drive in the Serengeti National Park and you might spot

animals you haven’t seen during the last two days. The Serengeti is also home to the Big Five – lion,

elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – and today you might be able to see all the members of this

group. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in direction of the Ngorongoro Crater and as soon as

you have reached the edge of the crater, the caldera opens up before you. This approximate 20 km

wide crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to over 25,000 animals. You will drive to the

Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp from where you can witness the sunset over the crater.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

Rise and shine! At day break you drive down into the crater. Inside the world’s biggest caldera you will

see a diversity of wildlife ranging from black rhinos, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, lions and

leopards, to elephants and mountain reedbucks in the forests on the slopes. You might also see

buffaloes, spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area.

After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch you will leave the crater and drive back to Arusha

where you will arrive in the early evening.
