Day 1Tarangire or Manyara National Park safari

Tarangire National park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and of course, elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families.

The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views to the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic).

In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation for the night. NOTE: We recommend Lake Manyara over Tarangire only during green season March, April and May. 

Our selection includes:

Mid-luxury; Baobab Tented Camp

Luxury; Kuro Treetops Lodge

High end; Lemala Mpingo Ridge





Day 2 & 3Serengeti National Park safari

After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous National Park in the World, the Serengeti.

The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes. As for Big Cats and large predators, it’s the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings having been filmed in this park.

Dinner and overnight at the lodge of your choice and budget.

Our selection includes:

Mid-luxury; Mawe Tented Camp

Luxury; Ole Serai Luxury camp

High End; Dunia camp





Day 4Serengeti National Park, Olduvai and Ngorongoro safari

On this day, we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch and then, we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World.

The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually a Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which, are the largest in the world and have huge tusks.

Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World.

Dinner and Night at Sopa Lodge or any other lodges around.



Day 5Ngorongoro Crater safari

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo pool lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha.

We expect to be back in Arusha around 5pm although we are flexible in case there is a flight to catch or another situation.
