Day 1: Arrival In Tanzania
Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will meet us at the arrival point with the signboard written your names on it. We will arrange a pick up transfer from the airport to the lodge in Arusha to prepare for your safari adventure. We will gather in the hotel for a pre-safari briefing and an equipment check. We will also confirm you have met the necessary safari requirements for your tomorrow’s trip. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 2: Game Drive In Tarangire National Park
Today we drive to Tarangire National Park, for excellent game viewing. Tarangire is a small park which offers some excellent sights. Generally, in the dry seasons, Tarangire comes alive as wildlife and birdlife congregate on the Tarangire River, which is a permanent source of water. We spend the night in our lodge beautifully set outside the park with stunning views and a unique atmosphere. In the late afternoon, we make a short journey from the park to our special tented camp. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 3: Drive To Serengeti National Park
We head towards the Serengeti National Park. En route, there is an opportunity to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep-sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here is a small museum, we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years.
After having lunch in the middle of nowhere, we drive into the Serengeti itself and the rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje. In December, January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffes, buffalo, and elephants, and many large predators such as lions, cheetahs, and leopards. We return to our special tented camp for the dinner and overnight. FB booked
Day 4: Serengeti – Full Day
We have another full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 5: Serengeti – Ngoronggoro
We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive-in Ngorongoro, we have a chance to glimpse something of the Masai way of life. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 6: Game Drive in Ngorongoro Crater
Today we will descend 2000 feet (over 600 meters) to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater for your crater tour. Here you will explore the forest areas inhabited by monkeys and elephants, the lake area, where we may see flamingos. We will also visit the open savannah where the lions hunt. Picnic lunch will be served in the crater. In the late afternoon, we make a short journey to the lodge for relaxation. Dinner and overnight at the lodge
Day 7: Lake Manyara – Arusha
We depart from your lodge in Manyara and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park. At the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the groundwater forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands, and steep outsides.
Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The Park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree-climbing lions. After lunchtime depending on your flight, we will drive direct to Kilimanjaro International Airport for the evening flight, or drive to Arusha for an overnight stay and transfer to the airport on the next day.
