  1. Day 1 Arusha to Tarangire

    The first day of your safari will begin by 8AM in the morning with a pick up from your hotel at Arusha.

    Once everyone is aboard, you will head towards Tarangire National Park. The 150 Km drive will be covered in about 3hrs.

    The national park is extremely famous and special for its diverse landscape and nine different vegetation zones. As you begin your game drive, you will be welcomed by the ancient and gigantic Baobab trees, which make even animals like the giraffe look tiny.

    The game drive goes on till about late afternoon and includes a small stop for a picnic lunch. The 3,000 Sq Kms park gets its name from the Tarangire river that flows through it. The river attracts a lot of diverse animals and you should be able to spot a lot of elephants, giraffe, lions, antelopes and zebra.

    If it’s your lucky day, you might be able to spot the tree climbing python and the long necked Gerek. The Tarangire National Park has the highest concentration of elephants, which offers a unique chance for you to observe interactions between elephant families.

    Don’t forget to capture this beautiful scenery with your camera ready at hand. Post the game drive, you will head back to your camp/lodge where a delicious dinner awaits you. Have good night’s sleep for tomorrow's adventure.

  2. Day 2 Ngorongoro Crater

    Finishing up with a quick breakfast you will make an early descend at around 9am 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.

    After an extremely exciting game drive in the crater, you will head towards your accomodation where a scrumptious dinner awaits you.

    The eventful day comes to an end for you to have a good rest in your chosen accommodation.

  3. Day 3 Lake Manyara to Arusha

    The final day of your safari will kick off by 8 AM with a breakfast game drive after breakfast. Lush forests of Acacia and Mahogany trees begin to set the mood for what is waiting ahead.

    The game drive will go on till mid-afternoon with a small break for a picnic lunch. During the game drive watch out for buffaloes, giraffes, impalas, baboons and the blue monkeys.

    Another spectacle of the Lake Manyara National park is the tree climbing lions, however spotting them is a game of luck. In the right season, you can see the shoreline turning pink with millions of flamingos flocking there. Keep your cameras at hand, for this is a simply beautiful scene.

    By mid noon, you will branch out and head towards Arusha where you will be dropped off to your preferred location by about 6PM in the evening.

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