    What's excluded :

    • Day 1: Tarangire National Park

      Stop At: Tarangire National Park, Tarangire National Park, Arusha Region
      Your day will start in Arusha, with a not-too-early morning and energizing breakfast to start your trip. You’ll go on a 3-hour drive before getting to Tarangire National Park and starting the first game drive of the safari.

      Tarangire is one of those parks that divides its “seasons” depending upon the water flow; consequently, animals migrate in and out during the dry and rainy seasons. So, from November to May, part of Tarangire’s wildlife abandons the park and then returns in June. During those months, the vegetation is at its fullest but you’ll see fewer animals; the opposite is true from June to October
      After a couple of hours of game-driving, you’ll stop for lunch with scenic views of the park and then continue onward with more jeep exploration until it’s time to go to the first camp.
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Meals included:
      • Breakfast
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight in Tarangire National Park

      Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park

      Stop At: Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Arusha Region
      As mentioned above, the benefit of staying next to Lake Manyara National Park overnight is that you won’t have to wake up very early start your second day. After a short drive, you will enter the home of the “tree-climbing lions.”

      This day will include a good amount of bird watching, as well as other animals like giraffes, buffalos, elephants, and if you’re lucky, tree-climbing lions hanging out on a tree around the foresty area of Lake Manyara. (hyperlink article about lake Manyara)

      Lake Manyara has a fascinating eco-system that contains various habitats, making it a great and captivating one-day visit.

      When you stop for lunch, you’ll have the option of eating at one of the best lunch stops of the park, with views looking over the lake.

      Then, before resuming your game drive, you’ll return to the entrance, spotting all kinds of animals along the way
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Meals included:
      • Breakfast
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight in Lake Manyara

      Day 3: Visiting the Maasai, Half-day at Serengeti National Park

      Stop At: Serengeti National Park, Serengeti National Park
      Finally, the day has come! What’s a safari in Tanzania without a visit to the Serengeti? This one will be one of the most driving-heavy days because you’ll have to move from one place to another. But rest assured: it will be 100% worth it.

      First, a nearly 4-hour drive to get to the Serengeti, with cool stops along the way to keep you entertained. On the way to the Serengeti, you’ll pass through Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop for a quick break to enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the trip. And if you encounter fog that obscures the view, don’t worry: you’ll be back a couple of days later with enough time to take in the view once more.

      At some point, a fun and educational stop you can choose to take is stopping at a Maasai village, of which there are many on the way to the Serengeti.
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Meals included:
      • Breakfast
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight in Serengeti

      Day 4: Full Day at Serengeti National Park

      Stop At: Serengeti National Park, Serengeti National Park
      When you spend more than one night in the Serengeti, you’ll be able to experience one of the most scenic spectacles it has to offer.

      From May to October, there’s an ongoing wildebeest migration. And, even though you might not be able to see them crossing the Mara River, you can see them migrating through different parts of the park in herds of thousands.

      Sure, it may require just a bit more driving than a normal game-drive day – and it’ll depend on where the migration is at the time of your visit – but it entirely worth it. It’s one of the best reasons to shoot for staying more than one night in the Serengeti!
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Meals included:
      • Breakfast
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight in Serengeti

      Day 5: Half-day in Serengeti, Arrival at Ngorongoro Conservational Area

      Stop At: Serengeti National Park, Serengeti National Park
      The last day in Serengeti is the perfect time to enjoy the early morning sunrise views. Before departing, there’s time for one more game-drive and another good chance to find a few more predators, along with zebras, impalas, hippos, and plenty of other animals.

      Afterward, there’s another day of driving to get to the next phase of the safari – this time, about a 3-hour drive to reach the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the respective campsite or lodge.

      You’ll arrive and for the rest of the afternoon and evening, take a nice, hot shower (you can expect hot-water showers even if you stay at the public campsite!), and enjoy the view of the crater at around 600m above it.

      The temperature can get considerably cold at night (about 10ºC), so wear warm clothes (hyperlink to tips article) and chill out with a nice warm cup of coffee or tea.
      Duration: 30 minutes

      Meals included:
      • Breakfast
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight at the Serengeti

      Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater, Return to Arusha

      Stop At: Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Arusha Region
      This will be the earliest morning of your trip, but you won’t mind it as soon as you see how majestic the crater is. After waking up at around 5 am, you’ll proceed to have an early breakfast and from there, drive to one of the viewpoints.

      Fog gets really dense in the area at times, so don’t worry if it’s blocking your views; as soon as you start to descend through one of the entrances to the crater, you’ll start seeing everything from above, allowing you to see the plain inside the crater, with its vast reliefs.
