Tour Summary:

The game parks of Tanzania offer some unique game viewing. Ngorongoro Crater is said to have the world's densest population of Lions and is Geologically magnificent. The world-renowned Olduvai Gorge offers insights into the origins of humans and Tarangire offers one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the dry season. Lake Manyara Lions have developed a liking for residing in the branches of trees where they can both sleep and watch for prey whilst the Serengeti is notable for its large migratory herds of Wildebeests and Zebras with strings of predators in trail. Tarangire offers one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the dry season whilst the Ngorongoro Crater is a World Heritage site which makes this camping safari very alluring.

Day 1: Nairobi – Arusha

We depart Nairobi City for Arusha and you will spend the night at any hotel of your choice at an extra cost. Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania and is a main tourism centre. It is the doorway to the Serengeti, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha National Parks and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. (Picnic lunch)

Day 2: Arusha – Lake Manyara

After breakfast, we drive to Lake Manyara National park where we will have our picnic lunch at the campsite then proceed on an afternoon game drive. Regardless of the direction we approach Manyara from, the view is always fantastic. This shallow lake offers dramatic views and is home to rich bird life, tree climbing Lions and its Hippos which you can see at a very close range. (Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 3 & 4: Lake Manyara – Serengeti

After breaking camp, we drive to the great Serengeti National Park viewing game enroute. We spend the next two days relaxing at the campsite and enjoying morning and late afternoon game drives. Serengeti is rewarding all year round but there is less game in the park during the dry season July / October where they migrate to the Masai Mara in Kenya. Overnight at Seronera campsite. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 5: Serengeti – Ngorongoro via Olduvai Gorge

After an early breakfast, we drive south to the magnificent Ngorongoro crater via Olduvai Gorge (to view the humanoid bones and fossil footprints) whilst game watching only interrupted by a picnic lunch enroute. We stop and set up camp at the Simba (Lion) Campsite (very cold night; but you will enjoy breathtaking views of the crater below). (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 6: Ngorongoro – Tarangire

Morning crater tour and after lunch we proceed to the less congested wildlife paradise, Tarangire National Park. The park becomes most active during the dry season between July and November when large herds of game attracted to the everlasting waters of the Tarangire River make this reserve every bit as appealing as the Serengeti. Dinner and overnight stay at the campsite. (Breakfast, Picnic lunch & Dinner)

Day 7: Tarangire – Arusha town

After breakfast we enjoy an early morning game drive followed by lunch at the campsite. Although the park is more densely vegetated than the Serengeti, (covered primarily in acacia and mixed woodland including baobab trees) it supports similar large mammals to the Serengeti and is home to a variety of bird species. We then proceed to Arusha town for dinner and overnight in a hotel of your choice at an extra cost. (Breakfast & Lunch)

Day 8: Arusha – Nairobi

Depart Arusha in morning crossing the border back into Kenya and drop off in Nairobi City. (Picnic lunch)
