Days 1-2 | Arusha & Tarangire National Park

Tarangire is an awe-inspiring national park comprising of granite ridges, river valleys, mixed vegetative landscapes, and free-roaming wildlife. With lion being among the most commonly spotted animal, it is a rare day that a visitor does not spot this majestic animal prowling or grazing. Tarangire is also the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are seen regularly. This expansive area is also known for its spectacular baobab trees, its breathtaking views of the Masaai Steppe and the wondrous mountains to the south.

Days 3-4 | Serengeti National Park

You continue onwards towards the Serengeti through the stunning Southern Plains to your centrally located camp for some spectacular game viewing. Situated in the heart of Tanzania, the Central Serengeti encompasses the world-famous Seronera Valley which is known for its prime wildlife-viewing opportunities. This picture-perfect landscape is characterised by endless stretches of savannah-covered open plains, interspersed by rocky outcrops of granite, scattered with acacia woodlands and covered in a network of rivers and streams. The Central Serengeti forms part of the great wildebeest and zebra migration and provides an ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife such as giraffe, impala, waterbuck, hippo, elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena, jackal, serval and much more.

Days 5-6 | Ngorongoro Crater & Karatu

Heading back towards Karatu for your final 2 nights, you'll stop at one of the world's most important prehistoric sites, Olduvai Gorge, for a tour and lecture where you'll learn why it is referred to as the 'Cradle of Mankind'. Continuing on to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you will stop on the Crater Rim to view the Crater in all its glory. You'll spend the whole of the next day in the Crater on a fantastic game drive to explore this phenomenon.
