Day 5 – Serengeti

Full day spent game driving in Tanzania’s largest park covering 14,736 sq km.

With a wildebeest population of about 2 million and several other hoofed species (which include zebra, Thomson’s gazelle, impala, topi, Grants gazelle, Kongoni, Eland, Kirk’s dik dik, klipspringer, roan, Oryx, oribi, waterbuck, buffalo, giraffe and warthog); the Serengeti attracts a string of predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, golden jackals and bat eared foxes.

Day 6 – Ngorongoro Conservation Area via Olduvai Gorge

After an early breakfast, we drive south to the magnificent Ngorongoro conservation area via the historical Olduvai Gorge whilst game watching only interrupted by a picnic lunch enroute. The Olduvai Gorge cuts through rock beds layered in time sequence from 2 million years ago to the present. It is here where humanoid bones have been found dating back to over 1.75 million years including a direct ancestor of modern man.

The Ngorongoro crater is the world’s biggest whole volcanic caldera at 8300 sq km and is arguably the most stunning arena. The area contains over 25,000 large animals including 26 black rhinoceros. There are 7,000 wildebeests, 4,000 zebras, 3,000 eland and 3,000 Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles. The crater also has the densest known population of lions, numbering 62. Higher up, in the rainforests of the crater rim, are leopards, about 30 large elephants, mountain reedbuck and more than 4,000 buffalos, spotted hyenas, jackals, rare wild dogs, cheetahs, and other felines.

We set up camp high up at the Simba campsite on the craters rim (cold but beautiful scenery).

Day 7 – Ngorongoro Crater to Tarangire

Morning crater tour descent looking out for the numerous animals that reside inside the crater and after lunch we proceed to the nearby wildlife paradise, Tarangire National Park.  Dinner and overnight stay at the campsite. Tarangire is more densely vegetated than the Serengeti, covered primarily in acacia and mixed woodland including baobab trees and supports similar large mammals to the Serengeti but is also home to a variety of bird species.

Day 8 – Tarangire Arusha

After breakfast we proceed on the early morning game drive in Tarangire followed by lunch at the campsite, before continuing to Arusha town for dinner and overnight in a hotel of your choice at an extra cost.

Day 9 – Nairobi

We depart the bustling Arusha town (the gateway to Tanzania’s national parks and game reserves) back towards Nairobi arriving in the afternoon.

Day 1 – Amboseli
We depart Nairobi in the morning and drive south through Masai country to the plains below Mt. Kilimanjaro where Amboseli is situated. After a picnic lunch enroute we enjoy an afternoon game drive in the park before setting up camp in preparation for the evening. With the majestic backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro, spectacular displays of wildlife – lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, cheetah, buffalo and various plains’ game, postcard perfect pictures are almost always guaranteed.

Day 2 – Amboseli
We spend the enjoying the Amboseli through early morning and afternoon game drives.

Lunch will be back at the campsite and you have the option of visiting the nearby lodge for a swim and cold drink or nearby community for example Lenkisem masai cultural visit (optional)http://lenkisem.wordpress.com/

The waters from Mt. Kilimanjaro drain under lava flows and surface in Amboseli, creating a green belt of swampland amidst dusty plains. At 329 sq km Amboseli is a small park and lacks the profusion of animal species found in the Mara, but the landscape provides limited cover so we have better chances of seeing some of the larger predators. Buffaloes, lions, gazelles, cheetahs, wildebeest, hyenas, jackals, warthogs, Masai Giraffes, zebra, baboon, and waterbuck are all present in the park.

Day 3 – Amboseli / Rift Valley / Lake Nakuru
After an early breakfast, we depart Amboseli viewing game en route as we proceed back towards Nairobi and further down the Escarpment to the floor of the Great Rift Valley where Lake Nakuru National Park is situated. En route we enjoy a picnic lunch arriving in the late afternoon. We set up camp for the night just outside the park.

The park covers 180 sq km and is home to warthogs, waterbuck, buffaloes, reedbucks, and the occasional leopard. White and black rhinos were introduced to the park some years ago and the park has also retained its reputation as an ornithologists’ delight with more than 400 species of bird found here. We spend the night at a campsite outside the park.

Day 4 – Masai Mara

Early morning breakfast before venturing into Lake Nakuru national park for a morning game drive. We return to the campsite thereafter to break up camp and depart towards Narok town and Mara with packed lunches. Arrive Mara in the late afternoon and proceed on a brief game drive before exiting to set up camp at our Talek riverside campsite.

The camp is equipped with clean restrooms, hot showers, kitchen and a small bar/restaurant. There is the option to upgrade to larger en-suite tents complete with bedding and private washrooms (at extra, additional cost and subject to availability).

Day 5 – Masai Mara

The following day will be spent in the game reserve; game viewing and absorbing the amazing sceneries. Optional activities include; visiting a Masai village or school.  You may also visit a nearby lodge for a refreshing drink or swim. The ultimate action here is without doubt the annual wildebeest exodus in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

Balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains and the wildlife after which you come back down for a beautiful champagne breakfast and these trips safari can be arranged at our office upon booking.
