The vast extensions of the Serengeti plains before you will impress you and wanting you to explore this area in deep. The Migration, consisting of around 2 million animals, is on the move all year round. Depending on the season you may see this impressive phenomenon.

You will return to your lodge for a sumptuous lunch to gather strength for the afternoon game drive. Dinner and overnight in lodge or tented camp.

On the grass steppe and in the acacia tree woods, you will find almost all species that are found in the East African savannah; with the exception of topis, Masai giraffes and impalas. Quite often you can observe the "Big Five" (lions, elephants, buffalos, rhinoceros and leopards) within a couple of hours.

Day 1: Arusha - Tarangire National Park

On arrival at the airport, you will be met by your guide and transferred to the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania's third largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, cheetah and up to six thousand elephant. Late in the afternoon you will drive to your lodge or tented camp for dinner and overnight.

Today's destination is a beautiful small Maasai village. With its trees offering shade and a nearby waterfall, it is just what an oasis should be in the hot, dry and dusty Rift Valley. In the distance, a pink glow shimmers from thousands of flamingos breeding on the alkaline Lake Natron. You will stay overnight at one of the tented camps near to the lake itself.  

Day 3: Lake Natron - Serengeti Lobo Area

After an early start, you will travel along exciting dirt tracks with wondrous views as your vehicle climbs out of the Rift Valley to reach the wide-open plains of the Serengeti by midday. The Serengeti National Park is the most famous park in Tanzania as it is home to the largest animal migration on the planet. The migrating animals are free to roam where they please and are not confined solely to the park boundaries. However, it has been witnessed that they are straying further afield and to this date, the wildlife watching can only be described of as spectacular. You will stay overnight in a lodge or tented camp in the Lobo Area. 

Day 4: Serengeti Lobo Area – Serengeti Seronera

After an early start, you will participate in an early morning wildlife tour. Back at your accommodation, a hearty breakfast will be waiting for you, which will be followed by further wildlife watching in the Seronera Valley, where you will find wildebeest and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs. Dinner and overnight in a lodge or tented camp. 

Day 5: Serengeti – Olduvai Gorge - Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The morning is set aside for further wildlife watching in the Serengeti. You continue game driving on your way to Naabi Hill Gate and towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

After midday, you will leave the plains and travel to the Ngorongoro Crater. Dinner and overnight near the crater rim in a lodge or tented camp.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Crater Highlands

On the grass steppe and in the acacia tree woods, you will find almost all species that are found in the East African savannah; with the exception of topis, Masai giraffes and impalas. Quite often you can observe the "Big Five" (lions, elephants, buffalos, rhinoceros and leopards) within a couple of hours. After an extensive wildlife tour you leave the Conservation Area for dinner and overnight in a lodge in the Crater Highlands.

Get a better understanding of the natural medicines still used on a daily basis with a Maasai medicine walk of the surrounding area. Then continue down to a Boma (mud dwelling) for an introduction into the Maasai way of life, beliefs and rituals. The road then leads you through the Crater Forest and over the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

The whole of the day is dedicated to wildlife watching in the Serengeti. In the Seronera Valley you will find wildebeest and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs. Other areas that you will visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are to be found. Usually the wildebeest and the zebras during the short rainy season in October and November are to be found moving from the hills in the north, to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season of April, May and June they return north. With fluctuations of annual rainfall the exact location of the animals varies from year to year. Your guide however will know the location of the herds and also where to get the best views. You will be spent another night in the same accommodation.

 

Day 4: Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast you will start a new game drive in the Serengeti National Park before heading into the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater Highlands - Lake Eyasi

We enter the true tribal areas of Tanzania after leaving the tourist trail and heading towards Lake Eyasi, home to the hunter-gathers, an ethnic group of the Hadzabe Bushmen bearing similar characteristics to those of Bushmen in Southern Africa. The small people of this indigenous tribe are probably the last living in true harmony with nature and have a wealth of fauna and flora knowledge to share with us. The time you'll spend with them is filled with tours and game walks guided by bushmen taking you on their traditional hunting tracks. Dinner and overnight in lodge or tented camp.

 

Day 6 Lake Eyasi - Arusha

A last early morning hunt with the Hadza and then it is back to Arusha for your flight home or further destination.
