DAY BY DAY ITINERARY
Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National park
Enjoy early breakfast at Kibo palace the luxury hotel at Arusha, the drive through tarmac road about 130kms to the pool of African Elephants the famous Tarangire national park, whereby this we will consume about 2 hours and 10 mins. Tarangire is surprisingly large, giving visitors the quietest game viewing environment of all the parks in the region. Elephants are the main attraction, with up to 3,000 in the park during the peak months. Peak season also sees good numbers of wildebeest and zebra as well as giraffe, buffalo, Thompson’s gazelle, greater and lesser kudu, eland, leopard and cheetah. The real prizes in the park are dwarf mongoose, oryx and generuk – but viewings are very rare.

Day 2: Tarangire to Lake Manyara National park
Experience short drive from Tarangire to nearest park Lake Manyara national park, which is about 75 kms barely 1 hour to reach the park gate. After breakfast, we proceed with our safari schedule to the famous tree-climbing lions park. Lake Manyara is a lovely scenic park on the road from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Crater, famous for its tree-climbing lions, good elephants, and baboons. The lake itself takes up much of the park, leaving a strip of land running along its shores where game concentrates. And its varied landscape supports an impressive range of other game including wildebeest, buffalo, hippo, flamingo, zebra, warthog, waterbuck, dik-dik and impala. The birding here is also very good, especially raptors.

Day 3: Lake Manyara to Serengeti National park
Early morning, depart to largest Tanzania national park and the proclaimed world wonder the Serengeti also known as Maasai endless plain. The park gate is about 205 kms barely 3 hours to 4 from lake Manyara national park. The Serengeti is Africa’s most famous park. Renowned for its incredible concentrations of predators and the Great Serengeti Migration of two million wildebeest, the Serengeti guarantees an exceptional safari. The endless grassy plains (Serengeti in Maasai) are the richest grazing grounds on the continent, and therefore home to the largest herds and the highest concentrations of predators on the planet. Arrive in afternoon at Serengeti then enjoy lunch at Serengeti Serena lodge, then enjoying evening game drive at the mid of the park.

Day 4: Full day game Drive at Serengeti Seronera
Wake up early in the morning, enjoy hot breakfast, and then pick up your sensitive camera to get some lifetime pictures of wildlife and the plain grassland of Serengeti. There is such a variety of species in the Serengeti as to be too great to number here, which is why it is such an integral part of a Tanzania safari. The Serengeti’s main attraction is the Great Migration, consisting of up to 2 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 Thompson’s, impala and Grant’s gazelles. The predator viewing here is exceptional with approximately 3-4,000 lion and huge numbers of cheetah, leopard and hyena.

Day 5: Serengeti to Ngorongoro crater
In the morning we left Serengeti drive heading to the great world crater, the Ngorongoro crater, which is about 145 kms from Serengeti barely 2 hours. The Ngorongoro Crater and surrounding highlands together form one of Africa’s most beautiful regions. Volcanic craters form stunning backdrops to some of the most fertile and richest grazing grounds in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater is the best place in Tanzania to see ‘The Big Five’. A healthy population of black rhino and some of the largest tusker elephants left in Africa today are the prize spots, but the crater is also home to good populations of lion, leopard and hyena along with healthy herds of wildebeest, buffalo and zebra. After game drive in the evening depart to Arusha end of Safari.
