  • Itinerary

    Day 1: Arusha > Tarangire
    From Arusha, depart early and drive to Tarangire National Park. During the dry season (June to September) thousands of animals including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, kudu, and the rarely seen oryx migrate from the dry Masai steppe to the Tarangire River in search of water. Spend the day enjoying game drives in the area, with picnic lunch included. Overnight at a tented camp in Tarangire.

    Day 2: Tarangire National Park
    Enjoy a day at leisure. You can go on morning game drive in Tarangire or relax at your accommodation. Overnight at a lodge.

    Day 3: Tarangire > Karatu / Ngorongoro
    This morning depart Tarangire and head for the highlands of Karatu, stopping on the way to view Manyara and the escarpment below. Presided over by the towering Ol Deani Volcano, the small, colourful town of Karatu offers a variety of activities including a the bustling marketplace, and is a chance to enjoy an authentic rural Tanzania experience. Enjoy a tour of the Ngorongoro Crater this afternoon (or tomorrow morning). The volcanic caldera of Ngorongoro offers spectacular game viewing in its crater. We can almost guarantee you four of the Big Five will show up, as well as a rich variety of birds, all viewed against the backdrop of the thickly forested crater walls. Varied terrains and dramatic landscapes consisting of forest, grasslands and both freshwater and soda lakes make the Ngorongoro Crater a true marvel of creation. Overnight either at the crater’s rim or in Karatu.

    Days 4 – 6: Karatu / Ngorongoro > Serengeti
    Continue your journey to into the heart of the Serengeti today. This renowned National Park is unequalled for its beauty and home to more than three million large mammals spread over the vast endless plains. It is here, at certain times of the year, that we may encounter the breathtaking spectacle of the annual wildebeest migration, where one and a quarter million wildebeest trek in columns of up to 40 km long in search of grazing, drawing with them their predators and numerous other species of game.

    Day 7: Serengeti > Arusha / Kilimanjaro
    On your final day, after your breakfast, you can choose to drive back to Arusha OR enjoy a scenic flight (at additional cost) over the Rift Valley edge back to Arusha.
