Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park

After a short briefing in the morning, our Tanzania-Experience safari  will start in Tarangire National Park. The park with its endless tree savannah including the impressive baobab trees and seasonal marshes, is also home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. In addition to elephants you are also likely to spot giraffes, buffaloes, lions, zebras, gnus and other types of antelopes and gazelles. Upon arrival at the park, your driver will open the roof of the vehicle and the extensive wildlife viewing will begin. Lunch will be taken at a picnic spot and in the afternoon, you will get to see more of this amazing and beautiful park. In the late afternoon you will arrive at the Lodge Camp, located just few kilometers from the Ngorongoro Crater for your overnight stay.

ACCOMMODATION: Lake Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge

MEALS PLAN: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

 

Day 2 Tarangire  – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you will depart towards the Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbu and Karatu, in the cooler regions of the crater highlands. You will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop for a short look into the crater from a viewing platform. Continuing your journey around the crater, you will descend the other side, enjoying your free “African massage” on the bumpy road, passing Maasai villages on your way to the Serengeti National Park. At the Naabi Hill entrance gate you can walk to a viewpoint with spectacular views across the plains of the Serengeti savannah. You will then continue towards the Seronera Area in the central part of the Serengeti. The park offers a multitude of wildlife including the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Late in the afternoon you will arrive at the Melia Serengeti Lodge. The camp is in a secluded area, in the heart of the bush and the stars at night are breathtaking. Lunch will be enjoyed en-route.

ACCOMMODATION: Melia Serengeti Lodge

MEALS PLAN: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

 

Day 3 Serengeti National Park

Following breakfast, Tanzania-Experience Safari continues, you will spend the whole day on a game drive in the Serengeti National Park and have lunch at a picnic spot en-route. Depending upon the time of year, you might even have the chance to witness the great migration with hundred thousand of wildebeests, zebras and Thompson gazelles. During the small rainy season in October and November, you will typically see these herds moving from the Kenyan Masai Mara through the northwest of the Serengeti to the plains in the south. After the great rainy season in April, May and June, the herds slowly travel back through the western and north-western part of the Serengeti. With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes. Your guide will try his outmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see the animals from the best spot in the national park. Naturally, the migration also attracts predators and with luck you might see a kill in action. You will spend another night at the Melia Serengeti Lodge.

ACCOMMODATION: Melia Serengeti Lodge

MEALS PLAN: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

 

Day 4 Serengeti  – Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha

After breakfast at daybreak, you will start early on your outward journey from the Serengeti back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, leaving behind the beautiful Seronera Valley. As predators are livelier in the cooler hours of the day, you might even see them in action. Lunch will be taken en-route at a designated picnic spot. On reaching the crater’s edge, the 19 km diameter caldera opens up before you in all its stunning glory and you will descend into the crater on an adventurous trail. This World Heritage Site is seasonally home to over 25,000 animals in including a wide variety of birds, hyenas and the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Exiting the crater on a different ascent road, you will drive to Arusha City, where you will be dropped at the Airport or to your destination Hotel.
