Day 1 : Moshi/Arusha - Tarangire National Park
This morning you will travel to Tarangire National Park.  Tarangire is one of Tanzania's largest national parks and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population.  Its natural vegetation consists mainly of Acacia woodland, where you can find over 500 bird species and the majestic African Baobab trees, which are an interesting feature of the park.  Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area and therefore making it the place to be for many animals and predators. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, cheetah and up to six thousand elephant.  Enjoy your afternoon game drive. 
***Approx 3-4 hours driving distance today***
Overnight within Tarangire National Park
Meals included today : lunch & dinner
 

Day 2 : Tarangire National Park - Serengeti National Park
After breakfast you will commence your drive to one of the most famous game parks in Africa, the Serengeti.  The Serengeti is famed for it’s annual migration where approximately three million wildebeest, zebra & Thompson’s gazelle trek the park in search of fresh grazing.  The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park and over the huge flat plains you are likely to find lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and many other small predators.  Enjoy an afternoon game drive, followed by the experience of sleeping in the middle of the Serengeti. 
***Approx 4-5 hours driving distance today***
Overnight within Serengeti National Park
Meals included today : breakfast, lunch & dinner

Day 3 : Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park quite simply offers the finest game viewing anywhere in Africa and today you have the full day to explore this park.  For a little adventure, you can enjoy the extraordinary experience of a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti (needs to be pre-booked by East Africa Safari Experts and an additional cost).  Today can be broken into morning and afternoon game drives or take a picnic lunch for a full day game drive. 
Overnight within Serengeti National Park
Meals included today : breakfast, lunch & dinner

Day 4 : Serengeti National Park - Ngorongoro Crater
An early morning start in the Serengeti to try and find cats before they retreat away from the blazing sun during the day.  After a few hours game drive you will commence your drive to the Ngorongoro Conservartion Area.  On route you have the opportunity to stop at Olduvai Gorge, which is one of the most amazing archaeological sites in the world.  ***Approx 3 hours driving distance today***
Overnight on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater
Meals included today : breakfast, lunch & dinner

Day 5 : Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha/Moshi
This morning you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater – a wonderful haven for wildlife.  Ngorongoro is unique in that almost all the wildlife live within the crater walls hence you have the opportunity to find game easily.  The crater supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, elephants and the endangered white rhino.  Another big draw card to this picturesque crater, is it's dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and occasionally leopard.  Enjoy lunch by the hippo pond before beginning your drive back to Arusha/Moshi.
