Itinerary

Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park

Accommodation: Lake Burunge Tented Camp

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel and after a short briefing, you will be taken to the Tarangire National Park. Upon arrival at the park, your driver will open the roof of the vehicle and the extensive wildlife viewing will begin. Later you head to your camp for check in and some well deserved relaxation.

Day 2: Tarangire Area – Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

After breakfast you will depart towards the Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbu and Karatu, in the cooler regions of the crater highlands. You will enter the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and stop for a short look into the crater from a viewing platform. Continuing your journey around the crater to the Naabi Hill entrance gate, you can walk to a viewpoint with spectacular views across the plains of the Serengeti savannah.  Later in the afternoon, you arrive at your camp just in time for sundowners.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

A full day of Serengeti game drives with lunch at a picnic spot en-route. You might witness the great migration with hundred thousands of wildebeests, zebras and Thompson gazelles, depending on the time of year. With fluctuations in rainfall, this timetable can of course change, resulting in the animals migrating during different times and routes. Your guide will try his outmost to find the animals and will make sure that you can see the animals from the best spot in the national park. 

Day 4: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Farm House

Breakfast at daybreak then journey from the Serengeti back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Lunch will be taken en-route at a designated picnic spot. On reaching the crater’s edge, the 19 km diameter caldera opens up before you in all its stunning glory and you will descend into the crater on an adventurous trail. Exiting the crater on a different ascent road, you will drive to Karatu, where you will spend the night at the Ngorongoro Farm House, a former working farm.

Day 5 Karatu – Arusha

Accommodation: Own arrangements

After a relaxing breakfast, you will return to Arusha, arriving around noon. Those who wish to combine this safari with a trip to Zanzibar can take a flight from the local Arusha Airport or Kilimanjaro International Airport. Lunch will be taken en-route.
