Day 2:Tarangire National Park

After an early breakfast, you will depart for Tarangire National Park. The park is named after the Tarangire River which runs through it. This ‘river of warthogs’ is the only source of water for wildlife in the region during the dry season. In some places, the vegetation is dense with elephant grass and acacia woodlands. The park is well known for its elephant families, which can often be seen congregating by the river. Tarangire is the best place to see these gentle giants in their natural habitat, from the adorable calves all the way up to the intimidating bulls. You may also see giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeests. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators, including lions and leopards. There are more breeding species of birds found in Tarangire than anywhere else on the planet. After lunch and an extensive game drive, you will head to your accommodation near Tarangire. You will be arriving late in the afternoon for dinner and your overnight stay at the lodge.

Day 3-4:South Serengeti (Ndutu)

After breakfast, you will head towards the far south of the Serengeti National Park, also known as Ndutu. Lake Ndutu is situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and is part of the southern Serengeti eco-system. Lake Ndutu is alkaline, like most of the other Rift lakes, however, the water is still drinkable and used by a wide array of local wildlife. The majority of the wildebeest migration can normally be found on the short-grass plains from December to April. The area is usually heavily populated with elephants, birds, and resident game. The Ndutu region forms part of the northern section of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It stretches to the unfenced southern reaches of the Serengeti National Park, creating a meeting point between these two incredible wilderness areas. After lunch and extensive game drives, you will spend two nights at Lake Masek Tented Lodge.

Accommodation: Lake Masek Tented Lodge

All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor)


Day 5:Ndutu to Central Serengeti National Park

In the early morning after breakfast, you will drive straight to the heart of Serengeti National Park for game viewing. Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequaled for its natural beauty and scientific value. It has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November. They then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May, and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge, or crocodile-infested river can hold them back. Serengeti is truly home to the legendary great wildebeest migration. Serengeti National Park is where safari-goers come to truly experience an African safari. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge.

Main Destination: Central Serengeti National Park

Accommodation: Kubu Kubu Tented Lodge

Meals & Drinks: All meals included

All drinks (Except for spirits/liquor)


Day 6:Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater to Karatu

After an early breakfast, you will drive out of the Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater for a game-viewing drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s most famous sites and is said to have the highest density of wildlife in Africa. Sometimes described as an eighth Wonder of the World, the Crater has achieved world-renowned status, attracting an ever-increasing number of visitors each year. You are unlikely to escape other vehicles here but you are guaranteed great wildlife viewing in a genuinely mind-blowing environment. There is nowhere else in Africa quite like Ngorongoro! It is one of the best places in the country to see the endangered black rhinoceros. The park is home to the entirety of the Big Five and is a particularly good place to see lions and cape buffalos all year round. A packed lunch will be served at a picnic site. Afterward, you will drive to your lodge for dinner and an overnight stay at Ngorongoro Coffee Lodge.
