Day 1Tarangire or Lake Manyara National Park

Tarangire National park is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, and of course, elephants. In fact, the park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. 
The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views of the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic). In the afternoon we will still do a game drive before continuing to your accommodation for the night.  
NOTE: We recommend Lake Manyara over Tarangire only during the green season in March, April, and May.  
Our selection includes:  
Mid-luxury: Baobab Tented Camp / Karatu Tented Lodge 
Luxury: Kuro Treetops Lodge 
High end: Lemala Mpingo Ridge Lodge

Day 2Serengeti National Park via Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After an early breakfast, depart towards the most famous National Park in the World, the Serengeti.  
The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in the local language, “endless plains”. The park has 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and all kinds of antelopes. As for Big Cats and large predators, it’s the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings having been filmed in this park. 
Dinner and overnight at the lodge of your choice and budget. 
Our selection includes:  
Mid-luxury: Mawe Tented Camp 
Luxury: Ole Serai Luxury camp 
High End: Dunia camp

Day 3Serengeti National Park - Big Cats and large Predators

After breakfast in the morning, you will continue with a game drive in the eastern and southern parts of the park. The greater part of these areas is a savanna with wide open spaces, which provides a likely opportunity to see cheetah-hunting antelopes.

In the evening you will be transferred to a hotel, where you will have dinner and be able to rest.
Our selection includes:  
Mid-luxury: Mawe Tented Camp 
Luxury: Ole Serai Luxury camp 
High End: Dunia camp

Day 4Serengeti, Olduvai and Ngorongoro - A Wonder of the Natural World. 

On this day, we suggest a very early wake-up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you’ll ever witness. After the game drive, we return to the camp for a rewarding brunch, and then, we’ll proceed to Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2.000 ft high walls, making it virtually Noah’s ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It’s one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The crater has a river, several swamps, a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest, and open plains. It’s also famous for its elephants which, are the largest in the world and have huge tusks.  

Dinner and Night at Rhino Lodge, Sopa Lodge, or any other lodges around the Ngorongoro Conservation area.

Day 5Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo pool lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha.  

We expect to be back in Arusha around 5 pm although we are flexible in case there is a flight to catch or another situation.
