Dinner and overnight at Tarangire safari Lodge
After a leisurely breakfast your safari adventure begins. We devoted with full day game drive in Tarangire National Park – home of the highest population of elephants, pride of lions, and over 400 species of birds. During the dry season, Tarangire is home to huge herds of buffalo and is inundated with zebra and wildebeest. There are long vistas and a baobab studded landscape that is the perfect backdrop for taking photos. These two days will be spent unearthing the many yet-to-be-discovered nooks and crannies of the park. Each day, we’ll find a new place in the great outdoors to have a relaxing lunch and then continue our game drive until the African sun begins to wane.

Today early morning after breakfast we drive to Ngorongoro crater for game drive. The crater is the home of the largest African mammals. Here is one of the few remaining places where it is possible to encounter the highly endangered black rhino. It is also possible to see elephants (mostly lone or “bachelor” bulls), pride of lions, hippos, a resident herd of wildebeest, zebra, various gazelles, and buffalo. We have lunch at the water’s edge soaking in the peace and serenity of the crater floor, then afternoon make our way to Serengeti national park
Dinner and overnight at Heritage tented camp
Today we devoted the full day in the central Serengeti. The name Serengeti comes from the Maasai word “siri nget” meaning “endless plains”. This vast savannah hosts the world’s largest surviving concentration of endless plains. In addition to the short grasses, there are beautiful rocky out-cropping called kopjes and thousands of acres of bush and acacia woodland. In the Central Serengeti, known as the Seronera, there is a plentiful supply of water which lures the big cats and elephants during the dry season.

For these five days, we continue of searching the animals. Around each corner there is a new sight to behold. We see it all, from the spectacular landscape to the multitude of cats following the Great migration and then resting in the umbrella shade of the picturesque acacia trees. We will take you to places “off the beaten track” so you will have truly authentic experience in this vast savannah with its changing eco-system, we likely will find ourselves in the presence of elephants, hyenas, antelopes and soaring eagles.
We’ll take you to the center of the action where you’ll see an endless stream of wildebeest, and every cluster of wildebeest is bubbling with activity. Get ready to snap those photos of these animals racing across the roads, lingering by the nearest waterhole, playfully locking horns with each other, and grazing leisurely on the lush grasses. Accompanying them is an impressive entourage of zebra and gazelle.
Dinner and Overnight at Embalakai tented camp
Today after breakfast we depart with our lunch boxes on our way to Karatu village for overnight. We will do the morning game drive on the way to the central gate of Serengeti, were we will stop for our lunch, followed with the paper work for check-in Ngorongoro for transit to Karatu village
Dinner and overnight at Endoro lodge
Lake Eyasi is a seasonal shallow endorheic Salt Lake on the floor of the great Rift Valley at the base of the Serengeti Plateau, just south of the Serengeti National Park and immediately southwest of the Ngorongoro Crater in the crater highlands of Tanzania. The lake is elongated, orientated southwest to northeast, and lies in the Eyasi- wembere branch of the Great Rift Valley.
The Hadzabe bushmen live in this region, as do the Datoga and Mbulu tribes. A visit with the bushmen is worthwhile and they will graciously show you where and how they live and hunt. They subsist entirely off the bush and by bow hunting. Everything they use is made from local materials, including their bows which are strung with giraffe tendon and their arrows which are coated in lethal poison. Their language resembles that of Kalahari bushmen tribe (who were features in the 1980’s film ‘The Gods Must Be crazy’) with clicking noises used.
We will be back to our beautiful lodge late in the evening for shower, dinner and overnight
Dinner and Overnight at Endoro lodge
After breakfast, we drive to the beautiful and intimate Lake Manyara National Park for game viewing. The park is famous for its magnificent array of bird and its impressively large Elephant population. Soda lake, located on the floor of the Rift Valley and next to a strikingly dramatic escarpment, attracts the breathtakingly elegant and delicate Flamingos and Pelicans, as well as countless species of hornbills, kingfishers, and the eye-catchingly peculiar Hamerkop. The park is also home to Olive baboon, Velvet monkey, Giraffe, Hippo, African buffalo, Impala and pride of Lions. Late afternoon we drive back to Arusha for overnight
Dinner and Overnight at African Tulip
It is popular destination for day trip visitors who are about to embark from town of Arusha on longer northern circuit safaris. The small national park includes the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes. Game viewing around the Momela Lakes is at a laid-back and quiet pace, and while passing through the forest many visitors stop to search for troupes of rare colobus monkeys playing in the canopy.
Further north, rolling grassy hills enclose the tranquil beauty of the Momela lakes, each on having a different hue of green or blue. There are shallows sometimes tinged pink with thousands of flamingos. The lakes support a rich selection of resident and migrant waterfowl, and also shaggy waterbucks that display their large lyre-sharped horns on the watery fringes. Giraffes glide across the grassy hills, between grazing zebra herds, Elephant, whilst pairs of wide-eyed dik-dik dart into scrubby bush like overgrown hares on spindly legs.
