You’ll be transported from the bustling town of Arusha to Tarangire National Park – a gem of a location known for its diversity of wildlife and often referred to as “The Little Serengeti.” Spend three days in the Tarangire’s wonderfully varied landscape of rolling hills and golden savannah, generously dotted with acacias and baobabs, home to diverse birdlife, large cats and massive elephant herds. Herds as large as 150 elephants are considered a usual sighting.
Leaving Tarangire, the safari adventure continues on the most famous drive through the Great Rift Valley. Head up to the lush Ngorongoro Highlands where forests, monkeys, coffee farms and lush gardens are the norm. In the afternoon relax in your lodge and enjoy a delicious meal with a good glass of wine.
Next day, an early departure to make the best of the day in the Ngorongoro Crater – one of Tanzania’s most famous landmarks. The crater is known for both it’s wonderful scenery and also the varied wildlife that thrives inside. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.
We end this exciting journey in the spectacular Serengeti. Fly to northern Serengeti from Manyara Airstrip and spend three idyllic days in the most famous park in the world. Maasai call it “siringet”, a term derived from the Maa word “siringitu”. It means “endless”, a place that goes on forever.
Settle into your camp and watch the wildlife pass by from the comfort of your veranda.
In the mornings and afternoons explore the savannah from a vehicle. Search for lions or cheetah along the edge of the woodlands or head out into the vast plains in search of the great migration. Stop for a sundowner as the sun sinks below the horizon and when back in the camp, enjoy a delicious three course meal and listen to the sounds unfolding around you.
After a final morning game drive to say good bye to the bush and your safari guide, take a scenic flight back to Arusha. Shop for last minute souvenirs and relax in your day room before your evening home-bound flight or continue exploring more of Tanzania by adding on an adventure from our safari extensions collection.
