Any guest may take a seat by the window. In addition, cars have refrigerators, power outlets, and VHF radio calls for quick and easy communication with the base office.
When you arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, our guide will be waiting there with a signboard with your names on it. Then, we’ll travel to Arusha, where we’ll lodge and gather for a pre-safari briefing.
Day by Day Itinerary
Day 0: Kilimanjaro Airport Arrival
A driver will meet you at the airport and transport you to the lodge or hotel that you have reserved. Prior to the trip to Arusha, our travel-wise manager or our safari guide will provide a quick safari briefing, and we’ll then go directly there. to eat dinner and prepare for the upcoming expedition.
Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire national park
We start our Tanzanian camping safari after breakfast, and then we head to Tarangire for a full day of game viewing. You will embark on a game safari drive through the park after passing through the main gate. Before going back to your tent, you will go on a morning and an evening game drive. A meal and a stay in a lodge or hotel close to Lake Manyara.
Tarangire National Park
Your game drive will begin as soon as you get to Tarangire, passing through a stunning scene of never-ending golden savannah that circles the Tarangire River. The enduring river provides both thrilling game viewing opportunities and an essential water source for the local animals during the dry season. The vast number of elephants in the park drink from the river that is lined with acacia and baobab trees, along with other herbivores like zebras and antelopes.
The best way to take it all in is with a picnic lunch by the river, but you must be cautious since the local monkey population will make every effort to get in the way of your meal!
While traveling through the park, you can see lions, leopards, cape buffalo, and many different antelope species. Even endangered animals like the Greater Kudu or the Fringe-Eared Oryx could be visible. After you’ve done your day’s drive, we’ll bring you to your lodging. Visit the Manyara Lodge/Hotel for the night.
Day 2: Tarangire National Park – Serengeti National Park
The journey from Tarangire National Park to the Serengeti National Park will ultimately be comfortable and pleasurable as you take in the stunning scenery and amazing panoramas. After breakfast, we set out early to traverse the floor of the Great Rift Valley, climb an escarpment, and pass through the Ngorongoro Conservation area. After arriving in the Serengeti late in the day, have a game drive before settling into a camp or lodge for food, a bonfire, and a night’s sleep.
Lunch is eaten at one of the picnic spots, probably close to the Naabi Hill Gate, where you can also catch some fresh air while your guide fills out the necessary papers and registration. Two dinners were consumed before retiring to the lavish Campsite/Lodge/Hotel in the Serengeti.
Day 3: Full Game in Serengeti National Park
You can get up early on this day to go on a sunrise game drive in an effort to see both the uncommon nocturnal animal species as well as the early-risers among the diurnal animal species. It is a good time to observe animals close by because most wildlife like to gather along road sides to avoid the early morning dew. After breakfast in your tent, you’ll spend the rest of the day on game drives inside the Serengeti National Park. The term Serengeti is derived from the Maasai word “Siringit,” which means “plains without end,” and true to the name, you will travel over broad swathes of the African Savannah in search of the different animals that Serengeti has to offer.
Along with the wildebeests, you may expect to see a variety of animals, including elephants, lions, cheetahs, the elusive leopard, zebras, elands, and several resident and migratory birds.

Your safari guide will, as is traditional, communicate with other guides via the VHF high frequency radios placed in our safari cars to stay informed about the best places to explore. Later on in the day, you’ll come back to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and check into a lodge where you’ll spend the night and have dinner.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater Full game drive

In order to arrive at the Crater floor as soon as possible, you can descend after breakfast or even with a breakfast that you’ve brought. Spend the majority of the morning at the Ngorongoro Crater till lunchtime. Ngorongoro Crater, which boasts the biggest concentration of wild animals, resembles a natural zoo with its 600–650 meter high walls. You could even be able to spot the Big Five in this area in a single day if you’re lucky. Following your picnic lunch, which you will probably consume at the designated picnic location beside the hippo pool, you will drive up the Crater rim and out of the Conservation area. To get ready for the last game drive the following day, you will return to Arusha mto wa mbu that evening.

Day 6: Lake Manyara National Park full game game drive
After breakfast at your lodge, have a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. Lake Manyara is a magnificent park that is always green thanks to underground water streams that flow from the Great Rift Valley to the lake.
Numerous species are drawn to the park’s different ecosystems with plenty of water and food, including herds of African elephant, buffalo, zebra, impala, hippos, giraffe, and other antelopes. In addition to other predators, this park is home to the well-known Lake Manyara tree-climbing lions.
