Day 1 : Arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport & Tarangire National Park
Your adventure begins upon deplaning at Kilimanjaro Airport. Your personal safari guide, who will escort you to Tarangire National Park, will welcome you. As you proceed to your lodge, en-route game viewing will allow you to experience first hand why Tarangire is known as the Land of the Giants. Wide panoramas of open acacia woodland and grassland savannah are home to the most majestic Baobab trees and elephants in all of Africa. Check in and lunch will be followed by an afternoon game drive where you will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife. Following the drive, we will proceed back to our lodge to enjoy dinner and an overnight stay at Tarangire Tree Tops Lodge. Enjoy an enchanted night’s sleep in the canopy of Tarangire.
Day 2 : Tarangire
After breakfast, you will embark on an all day game drive in Tarangire National Park. Enjoy a picnic lunch in a panoramic spot where zebra and impala may be grazing a mere 150 meters from your table. Your game drive will continue after lunch for another chance to enjoy The Land of the Giants. Following the day’s game viewing, your guide will accompany you on an in-country flight to Lobo Airstrip in the Serengeti in time to enjoy your evening meal at the Serengeti Migration Camp. You will overnight at Serengeti Migration Camp on the Grumeti River where you will be serenaded to sleep by the deep bass tones of the resident hippos. There is even a complimentary Kids Club for the younger members of your party.
Day 3 : Full day in Lobo in Northern Serengeti
An early morning start takes us into the remote Lobo region in the Northern Serengeti for an all day game drive. Picnic lunches are provided. The park derives its name from the Maasai word ‘siringet’ meaning ‘endless plains’. It is home to the largest animal migration on the planet. The Lobo area is one of the natural pathways for the annual migration of the wildebeests. Consequently, Lobo is also home to one of the highest concentrations of lions in Africa. You will return to the Serengeti Migration Camp for dinner and relaxation.
Day 4 : Ngorongoro
A morning flight to Manyara Airstrip brings us to Manyara National Park, home of the tree-climbing lions. An afternoon game drive in the park is followed by to the Ngorongoro Crater, the Eighth Wonder of the world, the next highlight of our Tanzanian safari adventure. This extinct volcano is the largest caldera with an unbroken rim in the world. We will overnight Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge, located on the rim of the crater.
Day 5 : Full day Ngorongoro Crater
An early morning game drive takes us back down into the Ngorongoro Crater. Very few animals are able to scale the 2,000 foot walls of the crater. You can expect to see a plethora of lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. Your personal guide will be in contact with other safari drivers and will amaze you with his skill at locating the animals. After exploring the unsurpassed beauty of the crater, you will return to Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge for rest and relaxation.
Day 6 : Ngorongoro to Kilimanjaro International Airport
After breakfast and check out, your personal guide will see you safely on your flight to Arusha Airport were you will be picked up by an Adventure Makers representative and later be taken to Kilimanjaro International airport for your flight back home. We look forward to serving you again. As they say in Swahili – “Safari njema!” Have a wonderful journey!
