Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport
  • You will arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, to meet your safari guide and driver, and transfer into Arusha city. You will reach your choice of hotel for an overnight stay, including breakfast.
Day 2: Tarangire National Park
  • After a briefing in the morning and an approximate 2 hour drive, you will arrive at the Tarangire National Park. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah, and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are also seen now and then. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and drive to a wheelchair friendly lodge or camp, for an overnight stay.
Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park
  • After breakfast you will travel from the Tarangire Area to the Lake Manyara National Park. The park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests, and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large colonies of flamingos and many more waterfowls. The park is also home to giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas, and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons. After an extensive game drive you will travel to a wheelchair friendly lodge where you will spend the night.
Day 4: Serengeti National Park
  • After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards southern Serengeti, and at midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. This park is the largest in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water. You will spend the night at a wheelchair accessible lodge, within or beyond the park.
Day 5: Serengeti National Park Game Viewing
  • The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees), and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year, but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best. You will spend another night at an accessible tented camp or lodge.
Day 6: Karatu
  • On your outward journey to the park gate, you will enjoy some more game viewing before you leave the Serengeti National Park in the early afternoon to continue your journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. As soon as you reach the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, you will see the giant caldera below a breath-taking view. You will leave the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and drive to Karatu in the Ngorongoro highlands. You will spend the night at one of the three beautifully located Lodges.
Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater
  • After breakfast at daybreak you travel back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before you drive down into the crater. The massive collapsed volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the Big Five lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard to spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic for lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and return to your lodge to spend another night.
Day 8: Return to Arusha
  • After a leisurely breakfast, you will travel back to Arusha where you will arrive around midday. You can be dropped off at the airport, or in the city centre.
