Head to Tarangire National Park passing across Maasai steppe before reaching Mto wa Mbu- your first Tanzanian safari experience start.

Tarangire National Park lies to the south of the Masailands and is defined by large open savannahs dotted with acacia woodland and large baobab trees. With the presence of the Tarangire River, this park forms a refuge during the dry season for many migratory animals, ensuring that Tarangire’s wildlife concentration is second only to that of Ngorongoro Crater.


The animal population here rivals that of the Serengeti so on your game drive you will have the chance to see large herds of elephants, wildebeests, zebras, elands, hartebeests, buffalos, gerenuks, fringe-eared oryx, and flocks of birds of many different species.
Optional we continue Esilalei Maasai Village to explore the area and our school project. In the late afternoon, we zig-zag our way up the Rift Valley Escarpment and onto the crater highlands for overnight.

Today we depart in the morning and drive through the small town of Karatu, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Southern Serengeti before reaching Serengeti National Park.


The seemingly endless Serengeti Plains capture the essence of Africa. The name comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. They are home to massive numbers of grazing animals and also various predators, and the interaction between the many species often provides some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in the world. Today you will start around 10 – 11 am for a morning game drive and follow that up later on with an afternoon game drive, as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day. You will usually return to camp during the hotter hours in the middle of the day, where you will enjoy a hearty meal, relax and maybe take a siesta. Depending on wildlife movements and opportunities for sightings, the drive may continue through lunch and last all day. In this case, you will return to camp in the late evening for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.

Today you will explore the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater, widely regarded as a microcosm of natural habitats in Africa and often touted as a veritable Garden of Eden. Within this crater lies every type of ecosystem, including riverine forests, open plains, freshwater, and alkaline lakes. Ngorongoro Crater is the remnants of an ancient volcano caldera, and within its 300 square kilometers is a remarkable concentration of wildlife. The scenery is spectacular as you descend almost 600 meters down to the crater floor. There is every chance that you will see a considerable variety of wildlife in this compact area, including the highly endangered black rhinoceros. In the afternoon you will leave the crater your guide will start driving across the Maasai steppe to Arusha. Where you will arrive in the evening time then transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport for your scheduled flight OR lodge in Arusha.
