Tour Timeline

Day 01: Arrival
Our guide will pick you up at Kilimanjaro International Airport and take you to your lodge for your overnight stay. As local Tanzanians, our guides know the country and Arusha city well, so you’ll be in good hands from when you arrive until the moment you leave.
Day 02: Tarangire National Park
In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and you will travel to the Tarangire National Park. This park with its huge baobab trees, the perennial Tarangire River, and seasonal swamps is home to the largest elephant herds in northern Tanzania. Animals gather at the river and you should be able to see elephants, giraffes, bushbucks, hartebeests, dik-diks, waterbucks, warthogs, and reedbucks all year round.
Furthermore, the park is also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. After an extensive game drive, you will leave the park in the late afternoon and drive to the Tloma Lodge, where you will spend the night.
Day 03: South serengeti (ndutu area)
This drive will take you to the most scenic point for wildebeest calving in the southern Serengeti. Here you will see lions and many other predators hunting newborn babies and limping animals. A full-day drive here will bring you the best of what any other peninsula has to offer.
Day 04: Ngorongoro crater
We will depart after breakfast for a short drive to Ngorongoro Crater. Here you will sink to the crater base, where the endangered black rhino is found. This magical caldera is the best for water birds and offers the great sight of the king and queen of the jungle, and lunch at the Lerai picnic. After lunch, we will depart for the evening drive before driving out to the crater rim and then out to Karatu for dinner and overnight sleep
Day 05: Lake Manyara National Park - Arusha
After breakfast, you will leave the highlands and continue to Lake Manyara National Park, one of the smallest but most diverse parks in Tanzania. The shallow and alkaline Lake Manyara covers a large area of the park and it is the seasonal home to thousands of flamingos which is an awesome (pink) sight.
However, more than 500 other bird species are also found here as well as some wonderful mammals. Troops of monkeys live in the forests, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests on the grassy plains, and elephants and lions in the acacia woodlands. After an intensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to arrive in Arusha by the late afternoon for departure.
