This is our most suggested tour for the Northern expedition circuit. It permits you to go to all the main national parks and even have fantastic cultural experiences. A seven days expedition visiting Tarangire parkland (1 night), Lake Manyara NP (1 night), Serengeti parkland (2 nights), Ngorongoro Crater (1 night) and Lake Eyasi (1 night - together with a desirable tour with the Hadzabe wanderer Tribe).

Day 1: Tarangire National Park

After breakfast depart for Tarangire National Park. Full day game drive in Tarangire National Park. Tarangire has a diverse landscape. Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in Africa) dot the landscape dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. The Tarangire River, that meanders through the park attracts an abundance of wildlife, from elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos, zebras, giraffes, antelopes to a variety of colorful birds. The park is very famous for having the greatest elephant population in Tanzania, and during a safari there you will have the chance of quietly observing many families of elephants interacting. With a stop for a picnic lunch in an observatory inside the park where you will be able to view animals drinking water in the river, continue game viewing and finally return to campsite for dinner.

Possibility for a night game drive. Accommodation can be upgraded to higher level options (at extra costs) or downgraded to more economic ones (price reduction).

 

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park

Depart after breakfast and drive across the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National Park for a full day game drive. This enchanting park is noted for its beauty and incredibly lush acacia forest of giant fig and mahogany trees, which are home to troops of baboons and blue monkeys. The park is also home to a large numbers of buffalos, giraffes, elephants, impalas and a Hippo lake, where large numbers of hippos usually gather. Well known for its birds, Lake Manyara is one of the few places where you'll be able to see the Ground Hornbill and the Crested Eagle. This park has become famous for the the climbing lions and the flamingos in the lake shore. The game drives are done along the shore of the lake, providing incredible views of animals in the foreground with the lake, flamingos and flat plains in the horizon.

Possibility for a Bicycle Ride tour. Accommodation can be upgraded to higher level options (at extra costs) or downgraded to more economic ones (price reduction).

 

Day 3-4: Central Serengeti National Park

The famous Serengeti National Park, home of the Great Migration. The game drive is spectacular as you drive up the crater highlands, stopping at the rim. Continuing on, spreading out is the vast Serengeti. Serengeti means "endless plains" in Kiswahili and this 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million large animals including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and Thomson's gazelles, large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax or monkeys also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. On the second day, after breakfast, full day in Serengeti National Park (morning and afternoon game drives).

Possibility to visit Oldupai Gorge and Balloon Flight. Accommodation can be upgraded to higher level options (at extra costs) or downgraded to more economic ones (price reduction).

 

Day 5: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Early morning safari before breakfast, to spot the animals when they are more active and also to have a fantastic sun rise. After the game drive, return to the camp for brunch, followed by a transfer to Ngorongoro, the 8th natural wonder of the world. With walls 2,000 ft high and a crater floor that spreads for 102 sq. miles, the crater is a virtual Noah's Ark, inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare black rhino. In fact, the crater has the greatest concentration of wild life in the planet. It contains a river, a soda lake that, from the top, looks like steam, full of flamingos, a forest and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusk, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.

Possibility for an afternoon walking safari in Ngorongoro highlands. Accommodation can be upgraded to higher level options (at extra costs) or downgraded to more economic ones (price reduction).

 

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Eyasi

Very early in the morning, descend down to the crater floor for a day of wildlife viewing in one of the most incredible places on Earth. After a stop for a picnic lunch near the hippo lake, and more wildlife viewing in the afternoon, drive up the steep road out of the crater and transfer to Lake Eyasi for overnight.

Possibility for an afternoon walking safari in Ngorongoro highlands. Accommodation can be upgraded to higher level options (at extra costs) or downgraded to more economic ones (price reduction).

 

Day 7: Hadzabe Tribe and Lake Eyasi

Very early in the morning, before breakfast, join the Hadzabe tribe, one of the last true nomadic tribes of Africa, in a fascinating hunting or fruit gathering session. This is something absolutely unique and out of the beaten track which is a great cultural experience and authentic while providing incredible opportunities for world class photography. After staying a while with the tribe, visit the beautiful Lake Eyasi, a seasonal shallow salt lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley at the base of the Serengeti Plateau. In the afternoon, return to Arusha.

Possibility to visit Oldonyo Sambu Maasai Village.
