Enjoy the wildlife!

Overnight at Kudu Lodge /Lake Manyara Serena Lodge

Lunch and dinner provided. 4 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June – November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.

Day 3: Tarangire –Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, travel with picnic lunches to Serengeti National Park

Enjoy an afternoon game drive!

Overnight at Katikati Tented Camp/Serengeti Serena Lodge  

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. 4 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq kms and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains.

Day 4&5: Full days Serengeti

Option: Hot Air Ballooning in the early morning followed by Bush Champagne Breakfast

After breakfast, enjoy a full day in different parts of Serengeti!

Overnight at Katikati Tented /Serengeti Serena Lodge

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.

4 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel. Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June – November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water on the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.

Day 6: Serengeti –Ngorongoro

Have the morning Serengeti and then after lunch drive to the rim of Ngorongoro Crater

to overnight at Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge /Ngorongoro Serena Lodge

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. 2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

There are several documented resident lion prides just within a one-hour game drive radius from Seronera. During the dry season, the resident prides begin to shift west and north in their territories and concentrate in the central region of the park. The dry season is a particularly good time for lion viewing in the Central Serengeti. The Central Serengeti is also one of the best areas in Africa to spot the elusive leopard. You may be lucky enough to encounter this majestic cat in the branches of the sausage trees that dot the banks of the Seronera River.

Day 7: Ngorongoro crater –Arusha

At 6:30 am breakfast, descend into the crater for a crater game tour.

After lunch drive back to Arusha (drop off point to be advised)

Breakfast and lunch provided.

4 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

Often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometres wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals – including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
