  1. Day 1 Arusha to Serengeti

    Your safari will begin by 8am in the morning with a pick up from your hotel at Arusha. With everyone aboard, you will head towards Serengeti National Park. The 240km drive will be covered in about 5hrs.

    The Serengeti, means endless plains in the local African language and watching the grassland stretch out as far as the eye can see and eventually merging with the sky at the horizon is an absolutely breathtaking view.

    With an overall land area of 14,763 Sq Kms, it puts our notion about distance to shame. The Serengeti also houses the glorious “Big 5” (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard).

    Along with the “Big 5”, a very pleasant sighting would be one of Africa’s most beautiful animal – The Impala. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa. The legendary Serengeti National Park is the most renowned safari destination for its incredible population of lions and leopards.

    The central portion of the Serengeti - known as Seronera area is one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park. It features the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species.

    In Seronera, one must really look out for the many lion prides that thrive in this region. You must also look out for the Serengeti “Kopjes” which are massive boulders of granite standing in a sea of grass. They provide ample shelter to a large variety of flora and fauna.

    A picnic lunch will be done during the day long game drive itself. The eventful day comes to an end with a heavy dinner and a good nights rest in your accommodation.

  2. Day 2 Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro

    Today, after a quick breakfast you will go on an early morning game drive in the Serengeti.

    The Serengeti, means endless plains in the local African language and watching the grassland stretch out as far as the eye can see and eventually merging with the sky at the horizon is an absolutely breathtaking view. It puts our notion about distance to shame.

    It is the home of the great migration of about 2 million wildebeest every year. The Serengeti also houses the glorious “Big 5” (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard). Along with the “Big 5”, a very pleasant sighting would be one of Africa’s most beautiful animal – The Impala.

    The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa. After completing a half day game drive along with a picnic lunch, we will branch out and head towards the Ngorongoro crater rim.

    The eventful day comes to an end with a heavy dinner and a good rest in your choice of accommodation.Get a good rest, for the following day you will descend into the massive crater.

  3. Day 3 Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha

    On this day of your safari, you will have an early start. Finishing up with a quick breakfast you will make an early descend at around 6:30am into the crater floor.

    The Ngorongoro crater is the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. It has a massive floor of about 260 sq kms with a depth of over 2000 feet. The 5 hour game drive in the crater floor, will show you a lot of animal action. Keeping the camera ready is definitely recommended.

    The African elephant, buffalo, Black rhino, Hippos, Hyenas, Cheetahs and Lions are found in plenty. Post the picnic lunch at the beautiful Hippo pool, you will begin a steep ascend to the top exit of the crater.

    This is the last leg of your safari, with a 4hr drive left to Arusha. You will be dropped off to your preferred location at Arusha by 6PM in the evening.

    With an incredible experience and loads of memories to cherish, this is the time you bid goodbye to your team.
