This 6 day itinerary with the inclusion of Tarangire National Park (is 205 km from Moshi) is best suited for the dry season. During the dry season migratory animals migrate around the Tarangire river as the maasai steppe dries out. The result is the highest population density of animals second only to the Serengeti. The park is full of huge herds of elephants, buffalo, wildebeest, zebras and gazelles just to mention a few; that can be seen moving either towards or from the river for a drink. Towards the south of the park you might see kudu or sable antelope (which are rare to the northern circuit). With such abundant herbivores around its no surprise that lions are very numerous in the three or four resident prides. Tarangire offers scenic scenes for photography and a high variety of birds for bird watching. An half hour drive from Tarangire takes you to the Lake Manyara National Park. This Park is famously known for its tree climbing lions that can be observed up in the sausage trees taking advantage of the cool breeze and looking for potential pray. In the woodlands you can get to see the large troops of olive baboons that can number up to 40 members. Another half hour drive lands you in Ngorongoro crater; the world's largest caldera offers abundant wildlife all year round since most of its inhabitants don't migrate outside the crater.

After a two hour drive from Ngorongoro you will arrive in Serengeti with game drive en-route depending on the season. The Serengeti National Park with its endless plains ( located in the Central, Southern and Western region) and woodlands (in the Northern region) is always full of game as along you know which area to visit. You will always follow the wildebeest migration depending on the SEASONAL & WEATHER HIGHLIGHT criteria for each month that we have formulated. In the Serengeti you see zebras, impalas, grants gazelles, warthogs, elephants, buffalos, dik dik, primates (velvet & olive baboon) and many other herbivores. This in turn supports the large number of predators like lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, serval cat and wild dogs just to mention a few.
