Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park

Accommodation: Lake Burunge Tented Camp

You will be collected from your hotel, it is a 2-hour drive to the Tarangire National Park, here you will see Giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes which add to the wonder of this nature reserve. From the open roof of the safari vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. 

Day 2: Tarangire Area– Lake Manyara National Park

Accommodation: Kirurumu Manyara Lodge

After an early breakfast, you are back on the road traveling towards Lake Manyara. You will enjoy a full day game drive as you travel through Tarangire to Lake Manyara Reserve. After a day of exhilarating game viewing, you are welcomed by your lodge where you will relax for the rest of the day and later have a scrumptious dinner. 

Day 3: Lake Manyara Area – Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti to reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. It is here where you will truly experience the meaning of an African safari. 

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park, as you follow groups of the migrating herds. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include 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. 

Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Karatu – Coffee Walk

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Farm House

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.

Day 6: Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Farm House

After breakfast at daybreak, you travel back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before you drive down into the crater.  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.
