Then, we’ll head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, an un-flooded and unbroken caldera, where you’ll descend into the Crater, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and marvel at the incredible diversity of wildlife that call this place home.

As we continue our journey, you’ll have the opportunity to view the “Big Five” and learn about the Maasai culture during the Maasai Boma Cultural Tour.

Itinerary

Day 1 safari in African parksGame drive Tarangire

The journey commences from either Arusha or Moshi (JRO Airport)* as the starting point. However, we also offer the flexibility to initiate the trip from other mutually agreed points such as Zanzibar and Dar Es Salaam.

Upon arrival at the airport or any other agreed point, we will pick you up and drive to Tarangire National Park where you will enjoy an 8-hour game drive. This park, located off the main safari route, is a serene and picturesque destination in Northern Tanzania. Tarangire is renowned for its elephant migration, bird-watching opportunities, and genuine safari ambiance. Most visitors to the region tend to bypass Tarangire or only allocate a few hours to explore the park, leaving large sections of it unexplored.

For this leg of your journey, you will be staying at the Marera View Lodge, Karatu. This includes a packed lunch and water during the safari, as well as dinner at the lodge.

Day 2 safari in African parksNgorongoro Crater game drive

Enjoy breakfast at the camp before embarking on your safari to Ngorongoro Crater. Widely considered as one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations, Ngorongoro is home to one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders – the Crater. It is also the premier location in Tanzania to observe the Big Five – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino. In addition to its magnificent wildlife, the area is also home to the Maasai tribe, providing a unique opportunity to interact with this fascinating culture.

The Ngorongoro Crater and the surrounding highlands are known for their breathtaking beauty, making it one of Africa’s most picturesque regions. After your visit to the Crater, you will proceed to Serengeti for an overnight stay.

Your accommodations for the evening will be at  Tanzania Bush Camp, which features fully equipped safari tents with comfortable bedding, private showers, and toilets. This day includes breakfast, a packed lunch, and water during the safari, as well as dinner at the camp.  In the event that Tanzania Bush Camp is at full capacity, we will provide alternative lodging options that are equally comfortable and suitable for your needs. 

Day 3 safari in African parksSerengeti game drive

After a delicious breakfast, you will spend the entire day in Serengeti, immersing yourself in the customs and behaviors of the wild animals, while following the Big Migration. The Serengeti National Park is one of the few destinations that manages to exceed expectations and leave visitors in awe of its natural beauty and wildlife.

At the end of the day, you will leave the park and head to Africa Safari Ikoma Camp, where you will spend the night in a safari tent. Your package for that day includes breakfast, a packed lunch, and water during the safari, as well as dinner at the camp.

Please note that for an additional surcharge of $150 per person, alternative accommodation options inside the park are available.

Day 4 safari in African parksSerengeti game drive

Following breakfast, we will pick you up and begin the day with a game drive in Serengeti National Park. The park’s most notable feature is the Great Migration, which is made up of nearly 2 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras, and 350,000 Thompson, impala, and Grant’s gazelles. The Serengeti is also known for its incredible predator sightings, with around 3-4,000 lions and large populations of cheetah, leopard, and hyena.

In June, the Great Wildebeest Migration is typically halted on the south side of the Grumeti River, which is the first high-risk obstacle they encounter. The herds then begin to move again in the following months, and from July to September, they make their famous crossing of the Mara River into Kenya, where they stay for approximately two months. By November, the herds return to Tanzania, and we invite you to experience a safari around Ngorongoro/ Ngorongoro Ndutu during this time.

After the game drive, we will transfer you to the Lake Natron area, where you will spend the night at Africa Safari Camp Natron, in a comfortable safari tent. Your package for the day includes breakfast, a packed lunch, and water during the safari, as well as dinner at the camp.

Breakfast in the camp and a short visit to Lake Natron.  Next transfer to Arusha Airport for flight to Zanzibar, at 3.30 pm. On the way Masai Boma Tour. Visit Masai Boma – an authentic glimpse into the distinctive Maasai culture. A traditional boma consists of a variety of “houses” which are in essence small huts made of mud and cow dung. Masai tribes are rich and true African culture, preserved through generations.
