Day 1 – Tarangire National Park (alternatively Lake Manyara)

Your Safari adventure starts today! We pick you up from your hotel in or around Arusha. During the 2,5 hour drive you will enjoy the view of the beautiful nature, landscapes and local communities. We’ll do a full day game drive in Tarangire Safari Park which is famous for its impressive numbers of elephants, extremly ancient baobab trees (1000+ years old) and tree climbing African Pythons. At the end of the day we go to Africa Safari Lake Manyara where you overnight in camping Safari tents. You can take a dive into the swimming pool and enjoy a sun-downer drink at the bar.

Day 2 and 3 – Serengeti

This day we will head towards the Serengeti National Park. After a few hour drive we will arrive at the Serengeti gate. After lunch we do a game drive all afternoon in this beautiful park. The Serengeti is known for its endless plains of savannah and forest landscapes. The park is famous for the migration involving about 1.5 million herbivores and followers.

At the end of the day we arrive at Africa Safari Ikoma Lodge. Located between Serengeti Seronera, Grumeti and Ikorongo Game Reserves the location is perfect for exploring the Serengeti. It’s the perfect retreat for a relaxing moment watching birdlife or a herd of impala grazing quietly around the camp area or rather just relax while listening to the sounds of the African bush.

The third day we spend one more day in Serengeti and late afternoon we head to Ndutu/South Serengeti where we overnight Africa Safari South Serengeti. The area is famous for the calving season of the Great Migration, an absolute highlight of the annual wildebeest migration.

Day 4 – Ngorongoro Crater

Today we wake up early in the morning and after breakfast we will drive into the wonderful Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Ngorongoro crater is the largest intact caldera in the world, with an estimated 30,000 large mammals living inside permanently. When you arrive at the edge of this crater, you will enjoy a stunning and unique view into the expansive plains below you. Due to its natural borders, there is an abundance of wildlife throughout the conservation area which is home to the Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and the extremely rare African Black Rhino) as well as hyenas, zebras and gnus to name but a few. After your game drive in the conservation area you will return back to Arusha where you arrive in the evening.
