Day 1: Arrive at Airport to Tarangire National Park
Pick up at airport in the morning and drive to Tarangire National Park, for excellent game viewing. Here you’ll find a diverse geologic landscape, with nine distinct vegetation zones. Ancient Baobab trees dot the landscape dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them. Tarangire comes alive as wildlife and birdlife congregate on the Tarangire River, which is a permanent source of water. It also has the world’s largest elephant population. In the evening it is possible hike to top of Sangaiwe hill to watch the sunset. Dinner and overnight at Sangaiwe Tented Lodge, Full board.
Day 2: Maasai Village/Serengeti National Park
In the morning we visit an inhabited Massai village and take part in their daily activities. Afterward we have an opportunity for a cultural exchange with the chief and one of his wives. Then we head to Serengeti for enroute game drive. Here we may see lion, cheetah or the elusive leopard along the way, as well as antelope and other gentle herbivores. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals. From the top we can look out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, as well as interesting bird life, from the elegant secretary birds to the flightless ostrich. Dinner and overnight: Acacia Tented Camp, Full board
Day 3: Serengeti National Park:
Day 3: Serengeti National Park: We have a full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. We can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, or possibly be in the middle of the migration, sometimes surrounded by wildebeest and zebras. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, and many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard. Dinner and overnight at Acacia Tented Camp, Full board.
Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater.
Today we get up early for enroute game drive across the Ngorongoro Highlands to go to Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. We drive around the rim of the Crater and can look down and see the herds of wildebeest or buffaloes. Finally we descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals. This extinct volcano embraces 100 square miles alive with lions, leopards, rhino, and elephant. We return to Arusha for overnight or an evening flight.
