Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha

Day 1 - Airport transfer & rest day in Arusha
Aerial view of Arusha city, Tanzania

We will meet you on arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport and drive you to your hotel in Arusha where you stay for the night on a bed & breakfast basis.

Day 2: Lake Manyara

Day 2 - On safari in Lake Manyara
Giraffes in Lake Manyara, Tanzania

Your safari guide will pick you up after breakfast this morning and you will drive the approx. 2 hours to Lake Manyara National Park.

The western wall of the Great Rift Valley provides the backdrop as you spend the day driving through the dense forest with its teeming primate population including baboon, common monkey, vervet monkey and the nocturnal bushbabies. The lake itself is a shallow, alkaline lake covering 230 km2, which Ernest Hemingway once described as “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. The lake is home to resident hippo pods as well as wonderful birdlife.

You leave the park in the evening before sunset and head to your lodge for dinner.

Days 3-4: Serengeti National Park

Day 3 - On safari in the Serengeti

Leave your lodge after breakfast and drive through to the southern Ndutu region of the Serengeti on your morning game drive. Your picnic lunch will be a chance to catch your breath and take in the endless expanse of the Serengeti plains.

Continue north into the central Seronera region on your afternoon game drive before settling in to your lodge. The best location for your Serengeti accommodation is dependent on the time of year you're travelling.

Day 4 - On safari in the Serengeti

Your Serengeti safari continues with a full day game drive as you explore deep into the heart of the park.

If you’re on the hunt for the Great Migration then your precise itinerary will be planned around the movements of herds.

If you're looking to tick off the ‘Big 5’ then the Serengeti’s vast, fertile expanse is the perfect territory as lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino can all be found... if you know where to look! Our expert local guides know the park inside out so you can simply relax, enjoy the landscapes and the magnificent wildlife.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Day 5 - Safari from Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater
Zebra & Wildbeest drinking from Ngorongoro crater lake

Today you have most of the day to continue your safari in the Serengeti as you game drive south through the Serengeti’s Ndutu region. Later this afternoon you will settle in to your new lodge, on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater itself.

The lodges in this itinerary are situated on the rim of the crater itself: with the most spectacular views. There are other options set back from the crater rim or in the Karatu region just outside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Day 6: Arusha

Day 6 - Crater descent & return to Arusha

After an early start you begin your descent to the caldera floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a unique natural phenomenon. Your game drive takes you across the crater and you have great opportunities to enjoy the abundant wildlife, including large numbers of warthog and ostrich as well as hyena, lion and an elusive black rhino population.

You have a lakeside picnic lunch today before you depart back to Arusha. You arrive in the early evening and overnight prior to tomorrow’s international return flight.

Day 7: Fly home
