We will take you on an African adventure you did not even picture in your wildest dreams.
Arusha to Tarangire National Park
We will depart from Arusha in the morning and travel to the Tarangire National Park where you can marvel at the colossal termite mounds and the ancient baobab trees. The picturesque scenery and diverse bird life assist in creating the tranquil ambiance of the Tarangire National Park. The great elephant population is an extremely remarkable sight. African elephants are the largest land mammal and adult males can weigh as much as seven tonnes. Tarangire’s varied wildlife includes lions, giraffes, warthogs, ostriches, impalas, cheetah, mongoose, buffaloes, and baboons. When your game drive comes to an end, we will take you to the Fanaka Campsite. Comprehensive camping facilities are on offer.
Tarangire to Serengeti National Park
An appetising breakfast will be served at the camp followed by a drive to the Serengeti National Park. We will take the scenic route to the Serengeti which allows us to travel near the Ngorongoro Crater. There is a possibility of spotting game. The endless golden savannah with splotches of color created by the vegetation and wildlife make it easy to understand why the Serengeti is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. We will stop so that you can enjoy your picnic lunch on a kopje (a small hill in a generally flat area). We will proceed further into the Serengeti for a leisurely game drive. You will spend the night at the Serengeti Camp, comprehensive camping facilities are available.
Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater
We will begin the day in central Serengeti where we will have lunch and a view game. The wildlife in the Serengeti is extremely diverse there are regular sightings of lions, leopards, elephants, cheetahs, buffaloes, zebras, wildebeest, elands, wild dogs, gazelles, crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, baboons, hippos, rhinos, and antelopes. There are a few factors that will affect the game you spot such as the migration of the herds and the season. The various bird species consist of a few migrants from the Eurasia region. We will drive to the campsite which is located near the rim of the crater and a delectable dinner will be served. You will spend the night at the Simba Camp, comprehensive camping facilities are on offer.
Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha
We will depart for the Ngorongoro Crater early in the morning as it is a wonderful time to spot the game. We will go on a game drive with a picnic lunch inside the crater. The majority of the animals tend to reside within the crater due to its elevated structure. There is a high possibility of spotting every member of ‘The Big 5’. The group comprises some of the strongest animals in Africa – the ferocious lion, the giant elephant, the swift leopard, the tough rhino, and the charging buffalo. The Crater has formed millions of years ago when a large volcano erupted. You can expect to encounter zebra, hippo, wildebeest, and cackling hyenas. There are graceful flamingos along the Soda Lake and vultures are constantly circling the sky in search of discarded carcasses. Storks and geese are popular waterbirds in the crater. Our game drive will conclude shortly after lunch. Our driver will transport you to Arusha but transportation to the airport can be arranged on request.
