Day 1 Arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport. The guide will meet you at the airport for transfer to a nearby lodge. Here you can relax by the swimming pool, or in the bar, with a great view over Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanajro. Dinner and overnight. HB
Day 2 After breakfast depart for Lake Manyara National Park with lunch boxes. At just 325 square kilometers Lake Manyara National Park is a relatively small slice of land. It is a beautiful little park, tucked in between the Rift Escarpment and the lake itself. Here you can see a lot of birds, elephants, giraffe, hippo and many other wild animals.
Early afternoon we drive to a nearby lodge to enjoy a beautiful garden with a view and with a swimming pool and bar. Picnic lunch, dinner and overnight. FB
Day 3 Today we leave the smooth roads and head into the parks of all national parks – The Serengeti. We drive through Ngorongoro Conservation Area, stop along the way for the view over the famous crater, we visit a maasai village (optional) and we have our packed lunch along the way, maybe you also want to visit the museum overlooking Oldupai Gorge – the cradle of mankind. Hopefully we see a lot of wildlife on our way to the lodge and you might fall asleep to the roar of a distant lion. Dinner and overnight at a luxury camp or at a lodge in central Serengeti, FB. Note! We always suggest we book you where the most animals are expected to be during the time of the year you choose to travel.
Day 4 We use the camp or lodge of your choice as the base and make game drives in both morning and afternoon, during which we hope to see lions, cheetah, leopard, hyenas, thousands of zebras, antelopes, elephants and much more.
Your stay here can be an incomparable wildlife experience. Covering an area of 14,763 square kilometers, equal in size to Northern Ireland, the world famous Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's oldest park, and one of the world's last great wildlife refuges. This is where the famous migration of 1.5 million wildebeest and thousands of Zebras take place. Its name comes from the Maasai word Siringet, meaning 'endless plains'. FB
Day 5 After breakfast we start the return to Ngorongoro and in time for lunch descend to the famous crater. The crater has been described as one of the great natural wonders of the world. Eight million years ago, the Ngorongoro Crater was an active volcano but its cone collapsed, forming the crater that is 610 meters deep, almost 20 kilometers in diameter, and covers an area of 311 sq. km. The crater is home to many species of wild game and birds, including the endangered black rhino. Dinner and overnight at a Lodge, near the Ngorongoro. FB
Day 6 After breakfast we drive slowly to Tarangire National Park. On the way we can make a stop for shopping and for those who want we can visit a local school or an orphanage. We have game viewing on the way to the lodge and in the afternoon. Mid day, during the warmest hours, you can relax by the swimming pool.
Baobab trees and elephants are the main sights in Tarangire. It is common to see large family groups of elephants in the park and game-viewing in Tarangire is usually very good, with plenty of giraffe, warthog, waterbuck, impala, zebra, ostrich, buffalo and many more animals.
Day 7 Today its time to go back to Arusha. We look for wild animals on our way out of the park, stop along the way for some shopping and enjoy a nice lunch in Arusha. After that some might return home full of stories and memories and some continue to Zanzibar or another beach for yet another experience on one of the exciting white beaches by the Indian Ocean with its intriguing history.
