Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Moshi to Tarangire National Park

Hotel pick-up from Moshi. Drive approx. 3-4 hours to Tarangire National Park for a full day of game viewing (packed lunch included).

Covering an area of 2,850 square kilometres, Tarangire National Park is the sixth largest in Tanzania. During the dry season, thousands of thirsty animals wander hundreds of parched kilometres knowing that here, always, there is water.

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland antelope crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem, a smorgasbord for predators, and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, tree-climbing lions and baobab trees. Other common animals include waterbucks, giraffes and olive baboons.

Dinner and overnight at Maramboi Tented Camp, f/b.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, drive to the top of the Great Rift Valley escarpment for an incredible panoramic view of Lake Manyara.

Proceed to the magical plains of the Serengeti National Park for an evening game drive en-route to your accommodation (approx. 4-5 hours drive).

Dinner and overnight at Katikati Tented Camps, f/b

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

Full day in Serengeti you’ll form memories of a lifetime with a breathtaking wildlife experience in arguably Africa’s greatest animal kingdom, the Serengeti National Park (two days game viewing with all meals included).

More than a million wildebeest… each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life; a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40km long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000km pilgrimage begins again.

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa, with great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephants and giraffes, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowl the south-eastern plains. Almost uniquely, all three African jackal species occur here alongside the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators, ranging from the insectivorous aardwolf to the beautiful serval cat.

The liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti plains is breathtaking; stretching across sunburnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth. After the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet dotted with wildflowers.

Dinner and overnight at Katikati Tented Camps, f/b

Day 4: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, drive approx. 4 hours to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and visit Olduvai Gorge; learn all about the significance of this world-famous site through an informative talk by a local guide. You will also have the opportunity to spend time in the nearby museum (packed lunch included).

At the far end of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area stands Olduvai Gorge, widely regarded as “The Cradle of Mankind’ and one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world. It is a 48km long, steep-sided ravine in the Great Rift Valley that stretches through Eastern Africa.

It is at Olduvai Gorge where remains of Zinjanthropus, the world’s first humans were discovered by Dr Louis and Mary Leakey over 50 years ago. The earliest known specimens of the human genus, Homo-habilis, as well as early hominids such as Paranthropus boisei have also been found here.

Drive to the Ngorongoro Crater Rim and marvel at its magnificence from high above; let the imagination run wild because tomorrow you’ll be roaming the floors of this volcanic phenomenon!

Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Wildlife Lodge, f/b

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge

After an early breakfast, descend into this extraordinary volcanic crater for a spectacular full day game drive (packed lunch included).

Had it not become the world’s sixth-largest unbroken caldera, then what is now known as the Ngorongoro Crater could have been a towering volcanic mountain as high as Kilimanjaro.

The Crater is a large, unbroken, un-flooded volcanic caldera, formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago. The Ngorongoro Crater sinks to a depth of 610 metres, with its floor covering 260 square kilometres; estimates of the height of the original volcano range from 4,500m to 5,800m.

Animal populations in the Crater include almost every individual species of wildlife in East Africa (with an estimated 25,000 animals within the Crater), including the “big five” of Rhinoceros, Lion, Leopard, Elephant, and Buffalo.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA), measuring 8,300 square kilometres, is the only place on earth where mankind and wild animals co-exist in harmony. The NCA became a Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1971 and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.

Then after game you will ascend to the rim and continue to drive at Lake Eyasi Safari Lodge for overnight, F/B

Day 6: Lake Eyasi to Moshi

This is the day of hunting with Hadzabe tribe, normal the hunting will start early in the morning whereby the guide will lead you to the area which you will be able to hunt different game like monkeys, baboons, dik dik etc and experience some life styles which is real impressive to watch and try some of the activities.

There after you will go back to the lodge for a hot lunch and start driving back to Moshi or extend to Zanzibar.
