Day 1

08.30 AM - 05.00 PM


Tarangire or Manyara National Park safari

Tarangire National Park is mainly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the continent’s most giant trees) that fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The park’s river is full of wildlife, ranging from many birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, and elephants. The park has the largest concentration of elephants in the country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. 
The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with fantastic river and wildlife views (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic).  
We will still do a game drive in the afternoon before continuing to your accommodation for the night.  

NOTE: We recommend Lake Manyara over Tarangire only during the green season in March, April, and May.

DAY 2 & 3

08.30 AM - 05.00 PM


Serengeti National Park Safari

After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous National Park in the World, the Serengeti.  
The driving itself is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will know why the name means, in the local language, “endless plains.” The park has 6,900 sq. miles (18,000 sq. km); for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon, defying your senses and perception of distances.
It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and all kinds of antelopes. As for Big Cats and large predators, it’s the place to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings filmed in this park. 

Two nights will be spent in Central Serengeti. 
Dinner and overnight at the lodge of your choice and budget.

Mid-luxury Mawe Tented Camp

High End; Lemala Nanyukie Lodge


6.00 AM – 04.00PM

Serengeti National Park, Olduvai and Ngorongoro safari
On this day, we suggest a very early wake-up to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch, and then, we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World.  
The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino.
The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a significant concentration of flamingos, a forest, and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants, which are the largest in the world and have massive tusks.  
Ngorongoro Crater is truly a Wonder of the Natural World. 
Our selection includes:  
Mid-luxury: Karatu Tented Lodge
Luxury: Lion’s Paw Lodge
High End: &Beyond Crater Lodge


7.00 AM – 05.00 PM


Ngorongoro Crater safari

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo pool lake.
After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive, ascend the crater, and exit the Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha.  
We expect to be back in Arusha around 5 p.m., although we are flexible if there is a flight to catch or another situation.
