Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

Great! We recommend starting your day early to maximize your time in the park and increase your chances of spotting wildlife. Tarangire National Park is about a 2-hour drive from Arusha, so you should plan to leave by 7:00am to arrive at the park around 9:00am. Once inside the park, you can spend the entire day on game drives, taking in the stunning scenery and searching for wildlife.

As you venture through Tarangire National Park, you'll have the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife. In addition to the large herds of elephants, the park is also home to buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and many species of antelope. Keep your eyes peeled for predators like lions, leopards, and cheetahs as well.

As you drive through the park, you'll also have the chance to admire the towering baobab trees that dot the landscape. These iconic trees are a popular subject for photographers and a symbol of the African savannah.

Enjoy a picnic lunch in the park before continuing your game drive in the afternoon. In the evening, you'll head to your accommodations for a restful night's sleep, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the African bush.

Day 2: Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti

After an early breakfast, head out towards the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera. Almost 20km wide, approximately 600 m deep, and known for its large variety of wildlife, the caldera, formed at the explosion of a volcano some three million years ago, was once taller than Kilimanjaro. A paradise caldera hosts an abundance of the finest animal life on the planet. In addition to the Big Five, the various springs attract animals such as wildebeest, gazelle, reedbuck, and more than 500 bird species.

At approximately 1400hrs we head towards the Serengeti, arriving at our lodgings in a high-grade tented camp at roughly 6:00 p.m.

Accommodation: Osinon Tented Camp

Day 3: Serengeti to Karatu

We will once more enjoy an early breakfast and set off on our game drive at about 6:30 am, spending 6-7 hours exploring this incredible park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebras (two hundred and fifty thousand), wildebeest (one and a half million!), and antelope (half a million). The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. Apart from the migrating herds, we may see predators, such as leopards, cheetahs, and lions, plying their rough trade. At roughly 1400hrs we head back to Karatu for overnight.

Accommodation: Eileen’s Tree Inn

Day 4: Manyara National Park

After breakfast, you will be met at your accommodations by your safari guide and then drive to Lake Manyara National Park. This is a relatively small but diverse park situated 120km west of Arusha. The park’s namesake is a shallow salt lake. It covers a large area of the park, floods and dries with the seasons, and is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species. During your park explorations, you will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and, with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes. It not only has grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs.

We expect to be back in Arusha around 5:00 pm although we are flexible in case there is another situation.
