Day 1: Arusha– Tarangire National Park

After a short briefing and loading the luggage onto the vehicle, you will drive in the direction of Tarangire National Park. Giant Baobab trees, the bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The park encompasses almost 2600 sq km, roughly the size of Luxemburg. The Tarangire National Park is considered one of the best places in eastern Africa to see elephants up close. One reason is that there are about 4000 of these huge mammals in the region, another reason is that the elephants are not bothered by the presence of motor vehicles. Apart from elephants, you will also have a chance to see the beautiful Maasai giraffe, various gazelles and antelopes, buffalos, lions, leopards, baboons and over a hundred different species of birds. After a day of watching wildlife, you will arrive at the Maramboi Tented Camp in the afternoon. Here you will stay overnight. LD

Day 2: Tarangire National Park – Mto Wa Mbu cultural programme – Lake Manyara National Park 

After breakfast the journey will take you from the Tarangire Area to the multi-cultural town of Mto wa Mbu near Lake Manyara. Your guide will take you on a walk through the village and its surroundings. You will walk through banana plantations, see traditional wood carvers at work, visit the local brewery and see local art in the making – giving you a real insight into the daily village life. For lunch you will enjoy traditional African food. After this wonderful experience you will continue your journey to the Lake Manyara National Park, which is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large colonies of flamingos and many more waterfowls. The park is also home to giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons. After an extensive game drive you will travel to the Kirurumu Manyara Lodge, where you will spend the night. B, L, D

Day 3: Lake Manyara Area – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti and at midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. The park is the largest in Tanzania with an extraordinary diversity of habitats and landscapes – short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water. Depending on the season, you will either spend the night at the Kati Kati Tented Camp inside the park or at the Mapito Tented Camp on the outskirts of the park.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park 

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. As predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals, you will have the chance to see lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best. You will spend another night at last night’s camp. B, L, D

Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Karatu – Coffee Walk 

On your outward journey to the park gate, you will enjoy some more game viewing before you leave the Serengeti National Park in the early afternoon to continue your journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. As soon as you reach the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, you will see the giant caldera below – a breath-taking view. You will leave the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and drive to the Ngorongoro Farm House in Karatu, where you will join a walk in the coffee plantation to learn more about the cultivation and processing of coffee. You will spend the night at the Ngorongoro Farm House. B, L, D

Day 6: Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu 

Rise and shine! After breakfast at daybreak you travel back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before you drive down into the crater. The massive collapsed volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard to spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic for lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and return to the Ngorongoro Farm House to spend another night. B, L, D
