Day 1: Arrival Day
You will be welcomed by our guide upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and driven to Lodge/Hotel in Arusha town where you may unwind and recover from your trip.
Day 2: Arusha – Lake Manyara
We’ll travel to Lake Manyara National Park after breakfast. The alkaline waters of the lake occupy about 89 square miles (231 km2) of the 127 square miles (329 km2) national park’s total area. The groundwater forest directly outside the park gates contains giant fig and mahogany trees. They obtain their food from the underground springs that the crater highlands right above the Manyara basin regularly refill.
Although Lake Manyara and its surroundings are best known for its famous tree-climbing lions and baboons, they are also home to herbivores including hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs, and giraffes.
Days 3, 4 & 5: Serengeti National Park
Following breakfast, leave Manyara and travel via Ngorongoro Crater to the vast plains of the Serengeti. The movement can be seen for one half day and two full days. With zebra and Thomson gazelles following the annual migration of wildebeest for new pasture, Serengeti is the oldest and most well-known national park. Buffalo, giraffe, eland, topi, kongoni, impala, Grant’s gazelle, lion, cheetah, leopard, and African jackal are among the other animals that can be found in the Serengeti.
Day 6: Serengeti – Olduvai Gorge- Boma
We will travel to Ngorongoro after breakfast, stopping along the way at Olduvai Gorge, the archaeological site made famous by the Louis and Mary Leakey findings, and the Masai Boma settlement, where you may learn about Masai customs and traditions. We will also have packed lunches ready.
Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, we’ll head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and enter the crater to watch wildlife. We’ll also have our packed lunches ready. The Ngorongoro Crater, a sizable, uninterrupted, undamaged volcanic caldera, is the primary feature of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The crater, which was created around two to three million years ago when a massive volcano erupted and collapsed on itself, is 610 meters (2,000 feet) deep and has a floor area of 260 kilometers (100 miles). The original volcano’s height is thought to have ranged from fifteen to nineteen thousand feet (4500 to 5800 meters). The majority of East African animal species, including lions, elephants, zebras, rhinos, leopards, buffalo, gazelles, wildebeest, hippos, and several bird species, are present in the crater.
Day 8: Ngorongoro – Tarangire National Park
After breakfast, head to Tarangire National Park, which is renowned for its herds of elephants, towering baobab trees, and tree-climbing lions. Only Ngorongoro National Park has a higher density of animals than Tarangire National Park, although being smaller. On your safari drive, you’ll have a packed lunch and plenty of time to explore the national park, stop to see the wildlife, and snap pictures.
Day 9: Tarangire Full day game viewing
After breakfast, spend a day filled with adventure game-viewing in Tarangire National Park. You can anticipate seeing zebra, eland, mongoose, giraffe, bushbuck, hartebeest, dik dik, impala, warthog, and reedbuck in addition to herds of elephants. The park is home to several carnivores, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals. We’ll go to the Camp at the conclusion of a full day to drink a sundowner and take in the myriad hues of the setting sun over the Tarangire landscape.
Day 10: Tarangire – Arusha National Park
We’ll drive to Arusha National Park after breakfast, bringing lunches packed in advance so we may enjoy the wildlife viewing till dusk. Cape buffalo, elephant, hippo, giraffe, warthog, antelope, zebra, blue monkey, vervet monkey, colobus monkey, and numerous reptiles are just a few of the animals that may be seen in Arusha National Park. Several different species of birds, both migratory and resident, are drawn to the Momella lakes.
Day 11: Arusha National Park – Arusha Town
You’ll embark on a guided walking safari with an armed ranger after breakfast. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to get images of the local wildlife, which may include zebra, antelopes, Cape buffalo, and birds. A sumptuous picnic lunch by the stunning Mount Meru waterfall will round up your safari in style. We’ll take you back to Arusha Town in the evening for your last night.

You will be taken to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your travel home after breakfast.
