Day 1
Arusha – Lake Manyara National Park
After a safari briefing at your designated lodge, set off for Mto Wa Mbu, where your driver/guide will stop so you can taste an assortment of tropical fruits, papayas, mangos, bananas and more. Continue a little further for a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. The park is famous for its spectacular bird life that dwells close to the water’s edge, magnificent woodland home to forest elephant and timid antelopes. It is not uncommon to see lion or leopard amongst the shaded branches up high.

Dinner and overnight: Kirirumu Luxury Tented Camp FB

Day 2
Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti National Park
Passing Ngorongoro crater rim descend through really impressive landscape down to Oldupai Gorge; known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind,’ where man’s first footsteps were discovered. Continue on to the heart of the Serengeti plains.

Dinner and overnight: Special Campsite In the Serengeti (Private Campsite) FB

Days 3 – 5
Serengeti National Park
You have plenty of time to explore the Serengeti, one of the most beautiful National Parks in the world, boasting an incredible selection of wildlife. Your game drives will follow the wildlife’s seasonal movement, which at this particular time of year is especially good for viewing big cats hunting. Our safaris have no limit on mileage and time on game drives.

(By extending the safari by one day you will be able to do an excursion to the Lobo area, endless ‘rolling plains’ in Northern Serengeti. Close by, the ‘Gagoti’ region is famous for its residential leopards, which we will try to spot before returning Central Serengeti

Dinner and overnight: Special Campsite In the Serengeti (Private Campsite) FB

Serengeti Excursion
On request we book balloon safaris in the Serengeti, which take-off early morning, offering a spectacular sunset from an eagle’s viewpoint, an exhilarating flight and unforgettable adventure. After your flight (of approx one hour) enjoy a champagne breakfast on the Serengeti plains before returning to your camp at about 09.30hrs.

Day 6
Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater
An early start through a curtain of dust leaves the endless plains of the Serengeti behind en route to Ngorongoro Crater. At midday decent 2000 feet onto the crater floor, where you will experience the great variety and density of wildlife that lives in the second largest Caldera on earth. Experience a solitary game-drive in the late afternoon, as most people have already left the crater-floor. Silent beauty beneath soft rays highlights increased animal activity as the sun fades. Wrap up warm, as nights at the Crater Rim are always chilly.

Dinner and Overnight: Ngorongoro Serena Safari lodge

Day 7
Tarangire – Arusha
Set off for Tarangire National Park, renowned for its huge elephant herds and giant Baobab trees. The mighty Tarangire River winds its way through the park and nourished it year round, attracting large groups of wildlife, particularly during the dry season. Afterwards return to Arusha.
