Day 1 – Arrive anytime at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). The private transfer from the Airport to the hotel in Arusha will be waiting for you at airport. We stay at Mount Meru Hotel.
Day 2 – Today we drive to Lake Manyara National Park for a full day of game drives. This is one of Tanzania’s smaller parks but still offers a rewarding and diverse safari experience. The lakeshore at Manyara teems with birdlife, and while you are looking for the birds, you might spot one of the elusive tree-climbing lions. There are a surprising number of other large mammals Such as Elephants and Buffalos. Dinner and overnight at L/Manyara Kilimamoja Lodge FB
Day 3 – We head towards the Serengeti National Park. En route there is an opportunity to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here in a small museum we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years. Or you have an opportunity to visit the Maasai village settled around Ngorongoro Area. Proceed to Serengeti for afternoon game drives.
In December, February and March we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, and many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard. Dinner and overnight at Ole Serai Luxury Camp
Day 4 – You have full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, and many more. Meals and overnight at Ole Serai Luxury Camp
Day 5 – We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. Game viewing enroute to Ngorongoro Serena Lodge for dinner and overnight stay FB
Day 6 – Today you will descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. Enjoy your picnic lunch by the hippo pool. Late afternoon you will ascend the crater walls and drive back to Arusha and onward to the Airport in good time for your departure flight
