Day 2: Arusha – Tarangire National Park

After a short briefing in the morning, you will be taken to the Tarangire National Park. The park with its endless tree savannah including the impressive baobab trees and seasonal marshes, is also home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania.

In addition to elephants you are also likely to spot giraffes, buffaloes, lions, zebras, gnus and other types of antelopes and gazelles. Upon arrival at the park, your guide will open the roof of the vehicle and the extensive wildlife viewing will begin.

Lunch will be taken at a picnic spot and in the afternoon you will get to see more of this amazing and beautiful park. In the late afternoon you will arrive at the Karatu Tented Lodge, located outside of the park for your overnight stay.
Lunch; Dinner

Day 3: Tarangire Area – Serengeti National Park

After breakfast you will depart towards the Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbu and Karatu, in the cooler regions of the crater highlands. You will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop for a short look into the crater from a viewing point. Continuing your journey around the crater, you will descend the other side, enjoying your free “African massage” on the bumpy road, passing Maasai villages on your way to the Serengeti National Park.

At the Naabi Hill entrance gate you can walk to a viewpoint with spectacular views across the plains of the Serengeti savannah. You will then continue towards the Seronera Area in the central part of the Serengeti. The park offers a multitude of wildlife including the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Late in the afternoon you will arrive at the Tukaone Serengeti Camp. The camp is in a secluded area, in the heart of the bush, and the stars at night are breath-taking. Lunch will be enjoyed en-route.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

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 the Tukaone Serengeti Camp.

Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

After breakfast at daybreak, you will start early on your outward journey from the Serengeti back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, leaving behind the beautiful Seronera Valley. As predators are livelier in the cooler hours of the day, you might even see them in action. Lunch will be taken en-route at a designated picnic spot.

On reaching the crater’s edge, the 19 km diameter caldera opens up before you in all its stunning glory and you will descend into the crater on an adventurous trail. This World Heritage Site is seasonally home to over 25,000 animals including a wide variety of birds, hyenas and the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard.

Exiting the crater on a different ascent road, you will drive to Karatu in the Ngorongoro highlands, where you will spend the night at Karatu Tented Lodge.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 6: Karatu – Arusha - Zanzibar

After a relaxing breakfast, you will return to Arusha, arriving around noon. Take a flight from the local Arusha Airport to Zanzibar. On arrival transfer to Zanzibar stone town and overnight Tembo Hotel Breakfast

Day 7, 8 & 9: Relax on the beach or by the pool.

Overnight Mwezi Boutique Resort or La Luna Suite Apartments Breakfast only
The beautiful coastline with its palm-fringed beaches creates an image of a forgotten paradise. Most are protected by coral reefs and are made of white coral sand. Here you can relax on the balmy, tropical shores of the Indian Ocean.

In the morning it may be possible to see some of the local fishermen, in their traditional shows, bringing in their catch of the day.

Spend your days relaxing on the beach or snorkelling in crystal-clear water. There are bicycles for hire or several optional excursions can be arranged on request, such as scuba diving, boat excursions, fishing trips or a spice tour of the island. You could also opt to visit the nearby turtle sanctuary where injured turtles and other marine animals are cared for until they are well enough to be set free into the wild.
