Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha Airport to Lake Manyara National Park

Today after you have arrived in at Aruisha Airport then you will meet us for safari briefing then start drive for a game drive to Lake Manyara where different species of wildlife will be observed.

Leopards, Lions, Elephants, Baboons, Blue Monkeys, Dik-dik, Gazelles, Hippos, Giraffes, Impalas, Bushbucks, Buffalos, Wildebeests, Zebras and more, inhabit Lake Manyara National Park.

The park is also home to more than 400 bird species and is known for the flamingos that inhabit the lake. During the wet season they populate the edges of the lake in flocks of thousands, however they are not so present during the dry season.

After the game drive, dinner and stay overnight at Twiga Lodge, F/B.

Day 2: Manyara National Park to Serengeti National Park

Set out for the endless open plains and stunning skies of the Serengeti via Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority for 2 Hours Walking then scenic 3hours drive, day game drive together with late evening game drive. Dinner and overnight at Into Wild Africa Tented Camps, F/B.

Imagine this.......

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 Elephant and Giraffe, 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 characterises 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.

Day 3: Serengeti Full Day Game Drive

Full day game drive in Serengeti National Park, Dinner and overnight at Into Wild Africa Tented Camps, F/B.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park to Eileen’s Tree Inn

Today we visit the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater. At more than 2,000 feet deep and 12 miles in diameter, the Ngorongoro Crater has one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. 30,000 animals make their home in this crater, making it an ideal place for sightings of the ‘big 5’ – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this truly world-class attraction, also known as the ‘8th Wonder of the World’.
