This 5 days safari will take you to the Lake Manyara (notably famous for it's tree-climbing lions). It will also take you to the Serengeti (a massive wilderness of 14500 square km, where every day brings a new landscape and a new adventure). Also it will take you to the Ngorongoro Crater (featuring one of the highest concentrations of game). Finally, to the Tarangire (which features some of the greatest concentration of game in Tanzania - second only to the Ngorongoro Crater).

DAY 1: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

In the morning, we will collect you from your hotel and drive you to the Tarangire National Park. The park, which is roughly the size of Luxemburg, covers an area of approximately 2600 km². Bush savannah, seasonal marshes and formidable baobab trees make up the landscape of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is probably one of the best places in East Africa to watch elephants and to get very close to these animals.

  • Accommodation: Budget camping
  • Meals & drinks: Lunch & dinner Drinking water

DAY 2: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa - the Serengeti National Park - with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti's species.
We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.

DAY 3: SERENGETI THEN TO NGORONGORO

After breakfast, you will continue the game drive through the Serengeti National Park. You will sight hundreds of wildebeests and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs in the Seronera Valley. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater, the caldera opens up before you and you will have a remarkable sight over this impressive natural wonder. You will camp for the night on the crater's edge and you will enjoy the fantastic view as the sun goes down.

DAY 4: NGORONGORO CRATER

After an early breakfast at daybreak, you will drive down into the caldera of the crater. Inside the world's biggest caldera, you cannot fail to be captivated by the rich and diverse wildlife. 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 and a picnic for lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and travel to the small village Mto wa Mbu that is situated directly at the border to the Lake Manyara National Park. You will camp for the night at a campsite nearby.
