Day 1: Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park

Our driver will pick you from your hotel in Arusha and soon after breakfast, you will leave for Lake Manyara National Park and have a game drive in there. Lake Manyara is a lovely scenic park on the road from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Crater, famous for its tree climbing lions, good elephants and baboons. The lake itself takes up much of the park, leaving a strip of land running along its shores where game concentrates. Lake Manyara park gate is about 130 kilometers approximately 2 hours and a half from Arusha town. Manyara provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s birdlife. More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants. Dinner and overnight are at Nsya Campsite F/B.

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park to Serengeti National Park

Depart after breakfast with your packed lunch for a drive to Serengeti National Park in the wilderness tracking the Great migration trails. You will experience approximately 205 kilometers to reach Serengeti park gate. There is such a variety of species in the Serengeti as to be too great to number here, which is why it is such an integral part of a Tanzania safari. The Serengeti’s main attraction is the Great Migration, consisting of up to 2 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 Thompson’s, impala and Grant’ss gazelles. In the evening we will watch the sun go down. Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder, the Serengeti, is famed for its annual migration when some six million hooves pound the open plains.
Dinner and overnight will be at Serengeti Campsite F/B.

  • Main destination: Serengeti National Park

  • Meals & drinks: All meals include drinking water (Other drinks not included)

Day 3: Full game drive at Serengeti central grass plains

After breakfast, there will be a full day game drive at Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch. The center of the Serengeti is the Seronera region. Seronera is a network of river valleys that ensure year-round water supplies and keep the region incredibly rich in wildlife throughout the year. The area has phenomenal concentrations of game and sees the migration herds move north from mid-April to late June and back south again in November and December. We will again be staying at the Serengeti Campsite F/B.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is an extensive highland area along the eastern arm of the Rift Valley, with the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point.
