From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals.

Day 3: Full day game drive in Tarangire National Park.

After breakfast a full day game drive in Tarangire National Park which is Tanzania’s third largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them.

Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lions, leopards, cheetahs and up to six thousand elephants.

Enjoy game drives with a picnic lunch. After lunch and an extensive game drive inside the park, we will drive straight to your accommodation for dinner and your overnight stay at Tarangire Osupuko Lodge, where you will stay overnight. Breakfast;Lunch; Dinner

Day 4: Tarangire Area– Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast you will travel from the Tarangire Area to 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 the Karatu Tented Lodge, where you will spend the night. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 5: Karatu - Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the 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 the Tukaone Serengeti Camp inside of the park.
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 6-7: 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 8: Serengeti National Park - Olduvai Gorge, Maasai Boma - Coffee Walk

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 and visit Olduvai Gorge & Maasai Boma. 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. Here you will join a walk in the coffee plantation to learn more about the cultivation and processing of coffee. You will overnight at Karatu Tented Lodge
Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner

Day 9: Karatu - Ngorongoro Crater - Karatu

Rise and shine! 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 Karatu Tented Lodge to spend another night.
