Itinerary

Day 1
Arusha - Tarangire National Park

Tour starts from the Office in Arusha after pick up from your hotel at agreed time.
Distance; 120 Km (Tarmac Road)
ETA; 1.5 Hrs
Destination; Drive to Tarangire National Park (2,850 sq km) for full day game drive. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams during the dry season, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It’s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem “a smorgasbord for predators”, and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked Gerenuk are regularly observed. More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colorful yellow-collared lovebirds, and the somewhat drabber Rufus-tailed weaver and ashy starling ” all endemic to the dry Savannah of north-central Tanzania. Dinner and Overnight at; Maramboi Tented Camp. Meal Plan: {L, D}.

Day 2
Tarangire National Park - Lake Manyara National Park

Wake up & have breakfast at agreed time.
Distance; 95 Km (Tarmac Road)
ETA; 1 Hour
Destination; Drive to Lake Manyara National Park (330 sq km) on the base of the Great Rift Valley, for a full day game drive. Stretching for 50 km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-meter high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bush buck tread warily through the shadows, and out sized forest horn bills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s bird life. Dinner and Overnight at Burudika Tented Lodge. Meal Plan: {B, L, D}.

Day 3
Lake Manyara National Park - Serengeti National Park

Wake up & have breakfast at agreed time.
Distance; 205 Km (Tarmac + Rough Road)
ETA; 4 Hrs
Destination; Drive to Serengeti National Park (14,763 sq km) for a game drive via Ngorongoro Crater rim. Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains. Dinner Overnight at Serengeti Savannah Camp. Meal Plan: {B, L, D).

Day 4
Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, continue with both morning and afternoon game drives in Serengeti national Park. As enduring as the game-viewing is the liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sun burnt Savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth. Yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. And there are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees and acacia woodland stained orange by dust. Popular the Serengeti might be, but it remains so vast that you may be the only human audience when a pride of lions masterminds a siege, focused unswervingly on its next meal. Dinner and Overnight at Serengeti Savannah Tented Camp. Dinner Overnight at Serengeti Savannah Camp. Meal Plan: {B, L, D).

On the way, (visit optional) you can pass by the Olduvai Gorge where the English pair, Louis and Mary Leaky pioneered excavation work.
