Trip Info

If you are on a time budget but want the best Tanzania experience, this is the perfect tour for you. This wildlife safari allows you to explore the wonders of the landscape, the culture and its inhabitants. We will explore the four northern circuit major parks of Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

We leave Arusha at 8:00 a.m. for Tarangire National Park. Along the way, we pass Masai villages and open plains that have become synonymous with images of Africa. Upon our arrival, we will enjoy a game drive along the Tarangire River, a source of water for the animals of the region during the dry season. It is here we will see Acacia and Baobab trees, elephants, zebras and antelopes. We will have a picnic lunch nearby but be aware of the lunch-stealing monkeys. After lunch, our journey continues to seek the lions, leopards, Cape Buffalo and a huge variety of antelopes. We may even see the endangered animals the Greater Kudu or the Fringe-Eared Oryx. We will spend overnight at a nearby accommodation.

We’ll have an early breakfast before driving towards the Serengeti. Along the way, we’ll pass through the rainforests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area where we may see Cape Buffalo, baboons or even elephants and leopards. Our first stop will be at the Olduvai Gorge. Here, see some of the oldest fossil evidence in the world of human habitation, visit the Olduvai Gorge Museum to learn more about the human journey and enjoy stunning views. We then continue to one of the famous Masai bomas, where you will witness traditional Masai dance, visit an authentic Masai village and even do a little souvenir shopping at the local market. After lunch, explore the Serengeti National Park. We will have dinner and overnight in the park.

After breakfast, we head to the Ngorongoro Crater National Park. As we travel a different route through the Serengeti, you’ll spot thousands upon thousands of animals in herds. See wildebeests, zebras, giraffes, antelopes, gazelles and African Elephants. You will have the chance to also spot cheetahs, leopards, hyenas and the king himself, the lion. Dinner and overnight will be on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater.

In the morning, we exp[lore the crater, considered as the 8th Wonder of the World. It is home to over 120 species of mammals including the Big Five and is one of the most sought after safari destinations in the world. It’s a good place to see the endangered black rhinoceros and large numbers of hippopotamus. Enjoy a picnic lunch at the park’s famous hippo pool before heading to Arusha.
