Welcome to the Serengeti National Park, where nature unfolds in spectacular fashion during the Wildebeest Migration. Over two million wildebeests, zebras, and antelope embark on a 450-mile journey across the plains, unaware of the lurking danger posed by lions and cheetahs. Marvel at the colossal crocodiles of the Mara River, patiently waiting as the herbivores brave the swollen waters to enter the Masai Mara Game Reserve from the Serengeti.

Discover the awe-inspiring Ngorongoro Crater, once a colossal volcano and now the largest intact caldera on Earth. This ancient landscape, nearly three million years old, showcases the breathtaking highland area surrounding the 600-meter deep Ngorongoro Crater. A haven for wildlife, this geological wonder promises an unforgettable encounter with the beauty of nature.

Day 1: Arusha –  Ngorongoro Crater (Sound of Silence)(L, D) (328km)

Embark on a captivating journey from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a scenic 2-hour drive. Upon arrival, undergo verification at the ranger’s gate before descending into the renowned crater.

Early arrival allows us to witness the resident wildlife at its peak activity. The vast prairies of this “Lost World” offer prime viewing of buffalo, elephants, and numerous other species inhabiting the crater’s expansive 100-square-mile floor. Keep an eye out for flamingos (seasonal) and the elusive black rhino. After a delightful lunch by the hippos’ pool, consider an optional visit to a Masai village for insights into the nomadic cattle-herders’ daily life and culture (additional costs apply).

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the crater, formed millions of years ago through volcanic activity, spans approximately 100 square miles. We commence our descent into the centre around 8 am, maximizing our chances to explore this unique ecosystem.

As our exploration concludes, your guide will navigate the steep crater walls, leading you back to the rim. From there, we journey onwards to your camp in the Serengeti National Park, providing an opportunity to refresh and unwind with a drink in the bar before a delightful dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Central Serengeti National Park (Sound of Silence) (B, L, D)

After enjoying breakfast at your camp, embark on an exciting game drive in the Seronera Valley, a renowned attraction in the Central Serengeti. This valley boasts an unparalleled diversity of resident wildlife, including elephant, giraffe, impala, waterbuck, hippo, topi, reedbuck, buffalo, and baboon. The presence of these prey species attracts Africa’s highest concentrations of large predators such as lion, hyena, leopard, and cheetah, as well as numerous smaller predators like mongoose, jackal, serval, and bat-eared fox.

Following the morning game drive, you’ll have the option to enjoy lunch and decide whether to embark on another game drive or return to your camp for relaxation. Anticipate an evening game drive, offering a unique opportunity to witness a sunset in the heart of the Serengeti National Park—a truly memorable experience during your visit.

As the day concludes, return to your lodge for relaxation, followed by a delightful dinner and an overnight stay at your camp.

Day 3: Serengeti – Karatu (Hhando Coffee Lodge) (B, L, D) (174km)

On your final day in the Serengeti National Park, you have the flexibility to choose your preferred schedule. You may opt for a very early morning game drive, returning to your lodge for breakfast before departure. Alternatively, you can begin the day with breakfast, pack your belongings, and then set out for a game drive, eventually exiting the park with an enroute safari experience. The choice is yours.

The journey from the Serengeti to Karatu town is a considerable distance, but the scenic route makes it worthwhile. In the later afternoon, enjoy a picnic lunch, and after this, continue your journey to Karatu, passing by iconic landmarks like the Olduvai Gorge and the Ngorongoro Crater. Upon reaching your lodge in the Ngorongoro Highlands, take some time to relax and refresh before indulging in a delightful dinner and spending the night.

Day 4: Tarangire National Park – Departure(B) (214km)

Renowned for its year-round Elephant Migration, Tarangire National Park is a hidden gem often overlooked by many.

The distinctive skyline of Tarangire, adorned with the silhouettes of stout baobab trees, sets the stage for exceptional game viewing, especially during the peak season’s winter months. The park’s marshes transform into lush grassy fields in the dry season, attracting vast herds of elephants, buffalo, antelope, and other plains game.

Predators, including lions, are frequently encountered, and the park is home to over 500 bird species, some of which are endemic to Tanzania. In the quieter southern region of the park, specialized camps offer walking safaris, allowing guests to intimately experience the African bush on foot.

As your Tarangire adventure concludes, exit the park and head to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your journey back home.
