A morning departure from your Arusha travels south for around two hours to Tarangire National Park where you can sit back to an afternoon of game viewing in a diverse and rewarding landscape. Checking in at Lake Burunge Tented Camp.
7 days Tanzania wildlife safari
Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire
Day 2: Tarangire to Lake Manyara
From one lake to another; today you leave the shores of Lake Burunge after breakfast and head for Lake Manyara and the surrounding national park for an extensive game drive.
Day 3-4: Lake Manyara to Serengeti
Leaving Lake Manyara behind you climb into the cooler air of the Highlands and the Serengeti begins to unfold before you. A vast swathe of Savannah, the Serengeti is one of Africa’s greatest conservation areas and the scene for the annual Wildebeest Migration from about November to roughly July as well as excellent game viewing throughout the year. The next day is yours to explore the Serengeti plains, your guide taking you to wherever the wildebeest herds are gathered along with their ever-attendant predators – lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and wild dog.
Day 5-6: Serengeti to Ngorongoro
You leave the Serengeti today but not without enjoying wildlife sightings all the way to the Ngorongoro Highlands and the Ngorongoro Crater. There is time to stop and marvel at the view from the rim of the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera before traveling on to Ngorongoro Farmhouse where you check in for two nights. Set in the quiet town of Karatu, Ngorongoro Farmhouse lies on a coffee farm and you can look forward to an afternoon tour of the estate, complete with views of Oldeani Volcano. The next day sees you on the Crater floor, enjoying a full-day safari in a destination with a reputation for the easiest Big 5 viewing in Africa – lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo are usually all seen within a day in the Crater. Back at your lodge, you have a swimming pool to enjoy as well as Internet facilities and a laundry service.
Day 7: Journey to Arusha
After a leisurely breakfast at Ngorongoro Farmhouse (and perhaps the freshest cup of coffee you have had), you travel back to the town of Arusha, arriving around midday. Your guide will drop you off at a hotel of your choice or at the airport for your onward travel arrangements and an end to this tour.
