Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro & Lake Mayara.
Day 1: Arusha –Tarangire National Park
Your safari guide will pick you up from the resort after breakfast at 7 am and transport you to Tarangire National Park.
The nearly 3000 sq km Tarangire National Park is well recognised for its enormous concentration of elephants and baobab trees. The Tarangire River, which runs through the park, gave it its name. Since Tarangire’s wildlife concentrations equal those of the Serengeti during the dry season (March–April), it is exceptionally breathtaking during that time (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). Over 2000 elephants and 500 different bird species call the park home thanks to its diverse ecosystems and the Tarangire River’s perennial water supply. Dinner and lodging at Bougainville Lodge or Manyara View Lodge.
Day 2: Serengeti National Park
Early in the morning, head for Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch after taking a break at your resort in the Manyara Highlands.
The Serengeti National Park is home to an estimated three million large animals, the majority of which participate in a seasonal migration, one of nature’s wonders, making it the last great wildlife sanctuary in the world. Serengeti, which means unending plains in Maasai, is derived from the area’s 14,763 square kilometres.
Dinner and Accommodations: If you’re travelling on a modest budget, stay in a luxurious tent at the Serengeti Sametu camp. Your lodging is determined by your budget.
Day 3: Full-day Serengeti National Park
Due to a large number of resident species, the Central Serengeti provides excellent year-round wildlife viewing. No matter what month you go on safari, you must visit the Seronera River Valley in Central Serengeti. The dry season (March–November) is the most incredible time to go game viewing in Central Serengeti since local animals are more concentrated nearby owing to the lack of water on the plains. You can view a wide range of herbivores such as impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest, and giraffes, as well as carnivores such as lions and leopards.
Dinner and overnight accommodations could be at either the Serengeti Sametu deluxe tented resort or one of the Serengeti heritage camps.
Day 4: Serengeti –Ngorongoro conservation area
The 1.5 million wildebeests that make a continuous migration in search of greener pastures are the subject of the biggest wildlife extravaganza in the world, which takes place on the Serengeti’s boundless plains. Every year, this enormous herd of wildebeest travels in a clockwise direction around the Serengeti, up to the Masai Mara in Kenya, and then returns to the Serengeti to give birth to its young (over 8000 wildebeest are born a day between mid-Feb and mid-March).
They travel about 2,500 miles annually and are constantly in danger from some of Africa’s most dangerous predators. Your driver guide will be able to tell you where the herd is right now based on the time of your visit.
Dinner and overnight options include camping in the small, portable tents at the Ngorongoro Lion’s Paw or similar. Your lodging is determined by your budget.
Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater
The Ngorongoro crater, the world’s most prominent intact crater, is frequently referred to as the eighth natural wonder of the world. The Ngorongoro volcano erupted over 2 million years ago, and its walls fell in. With its 600m towering walls, the volcano’s floor sunk to form a natural enclosure. Ngorongoro Crater is now more than 19 kilometres wide and is home to vast tracts of acacia forest, hippo-infested marshes, and open grasslands. More than 30,000 creatures, including elephants, warthogs, flamingos, spectacular birdlife, the endangered black rhinoceros, and all predatory cats, can be found in these many environments. Along with the buffalo and wildebeest, the Maasai can also be observed grazing cattle.
Dinner and overnight accommodations are possible at Jambo Lodge or Manyara View Lodge.
Day 6: Lake Manyara- Back Arusha/ Airport drop off.
Return to Lake Manyara, located at the base of the picturesque Manyara escarpments and surrounds the park’s namesake lake, and spend 6 to 7 hours there. This park is home to acacia woodland, a vast variety of animals, and—despite being infrequently seen—lions that can climb trees.
A wide variety of birds can be spotted easily around the lake and on the rocks.
