This is an action-packed safari adventure through some of Tanzania’s most iconic national parks and game reserves concentrated in the north of the country. You will track herds of Elephants through the Tarangire’s vast open woodlands, observe large Lion prides in the Jurassic caldera of the Ngorongoro Crater, then follow the migration and wildebeest herds stalked by predators across the northern Serengeti plains. This is a trip that will deliver you some of Tanzania’s signature game sights and thrilling animal encounters in style and with expert guiding throughout.

Day 1 : Lake Manyara.
Depart from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park to arrive in time for lunch. After lunch depart for an afternoon game drive and game viewing. The park is famous for its tree-climbing lions and birdlife. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyaras’ legendary tree- climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants squadrons of banded mongoose dart between the acacias while the diminutive Kirk’s dik dik forages in then shade, pairs of klipspringer are often seen silhouetted on the rocks above a field of searing hot springs that streams and bubbles adjacent to the lake shore in the far south of the park. Dinner and overnight at a lodge.

Day 2 : Ngorongoro Crater.
Morning game viewing and drive in Manyara. After breakfast depart to one of the natural wonders of the world, Ngorongoro crater. The Crater is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles; its magical setting and abundant wildlife never fail to enthral visitors. It borders the Serengeti National Park to the north and west. Arusha is known as the gateway to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Northern Parks. Dinner and overnight at a lodge.

Day 3 : Ngorongoro crater.
After breakfast you will be taken 2000ft down the crater by a 4wheel drive vehicle for a full day crater tour, picnic lunch at crater, Also referred to as “the eighth wonder of the world” and stretching across some 8,300 sq km, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in northern Tanzania boasts a blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology that is unsurpassed in Africa. The volcanoes, grasslands, waterfalls and mountain forests are home to an abundance of animals and to the Maasai. In the evening ascend to the lodge for dinner and overnight. 

Day 4 : Serengeti.
After breakfast depart for Serengeti passing through Olduvai Gorge the site of Leakey’s family discovery of fossils of human and animal ancestors dating back to almost two million years. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves. Meals and overnight at lodge.

Day 5 : Serengeti.
Full day in Serengeti plains with morning and afternoon game viewing and drive. Search for wild game you might have missed the previous game drive. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back. Meals and overnight at lodge.

Day 6 : Arusha.
After breakfast depart to Arusha town for Lunch. Soon after you will be transferred to the Airport for your onward arrangements or maybe to Zanzibar for the beach relaxation. End of our services
