Itinerary

Day 1 – Arusha to Tarangire National Park

After a short briefing in the morning you will head off in direction of the Tarangire National Park. The park with its savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps and lagoons is home to huge elephant herds. Animals gather at the life-giving Tarangire River and you should see a selection of mammals ranging from giraffes, bushbucks and hartebeests to the weird-looking gerenuk and fringe-eared oryx. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon you will arrive at a campsite inside the park, where you will spend the night in a tent.

Distance approx.: 150 km

Driving time approx.: 2-3 hours

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 – Tarangire National Park to Lake Natron

After breakfast you will leave the Tarangire National Park and head to the multicultural village of MtowaMbu. From here you will travel on a spectacular and very bumpy gravel road along the Rift Valley Escarpment with OlDoinyoLengai “the holy mountain” of the Masai in the distance. Today’s destination is the beautiful Maasai village of NgareSero, an oasis in the hot and dusty Rift Valley. In the distance you will notice a pink glow from thousands of flamingos breeding and feeding on the algae of the alkaline Lake Natron. In the afternoon you will join a Maasai guide on a walk to a nearby waterfall before you return to the campsite for your overnight.

Distance approx.: 170 km

Driving time approx.: 4 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 – Lake Natron to Serengeti National Park

After an early start, you will travel along adventurous dirt tracks with breath-taking views as your vehicle climbs out of the Rift Valley to reach the grassy plains of the Serengeti by midday. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the language of the Maasai and you will see the grassland savannah stretching to the horizon. The Serengeti is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is home to the largest animal migration on the planet – hundreds of thousands of animals trek to find fresh grass and water. You will overnight at a campsite in the northern or central part of the park.

Distance approx.: 190 km

Driving time approx.: 6-7 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 – Serengeti National Park

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. You will either go on a full day game drive or join early morning and afternoon drives in the Seronera area, depending on last night’s stop. Between December and May huge herds of wildebeests and zebras will be seen, with calves and foals being born between January and March. The Seronera area is also the best place to spot the shy and nocturnal leopard. You will spend the night at a campsite in the Seronera area.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 – Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The morning is set aside for another game drive in the Serengeti and you might spot some creatures that you haven’t seen yet. Animals tend to be more active in the morning before the temperatures soar around midday. After lunch, you will leave the plains of the Serengeti and travel to the highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will camp at a campsite directly on the Ngorongoro Crater’s edge with a view over the collapsed volcano. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner at sunset.

Distance approx.: 160 km

Driving time approx.: 3-4 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 – Ngorongoro Crater to MtowaMbu

Rise and shine! It is up at daybreak to take on the steep path leading down into the 600 m deep crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah with the occasional acacia tree here and there. The wildlife in the crater is just breath-taking and with a little luck you might see the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. You should also see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an entire morning of game viewing and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will travel to MtowaMbu where you will overnight on a campsite.

Distance approx.: 50 km

Driving time approx.: 1-2 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 – MtowaMbu to Arusha

After a leisurely breakfast, you will start your return trip to Arusha, where you will arrive around midday. You will be dropped off in the city centre or at the airport.

Distance approx.: 140 km

Driving time approx.: 2-3 hours

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
