Tour Details

Safari & Beach Experience starts with a trip down to Tarangire National Park, where the Tarangire River provides a dry-season lure for animals providing interesting game viewing encounters for guests. From here you will be taken to Lake Manyara Park, home to rich bird life, tree climbing Lions and its Hippos at closer range than many other places. After enjoying a day’s game drive we head towards the Serengeti where you will spend the next two days exploring the vast park through early morning and late afternoon game drives. You may even opt for an early morning balloon safari followed by a champagne breakfast on one of the days to follow the Wildebeest trail from above.

From here you will be taken to the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater for a day’s game drive to discover a significant number of the 25,000 large game animals that live in this crater – also known for its lions, the densest population in the world.

Itinerary

Day 1Arusha to Tarangire Park

Early pick up from your hotel as we drive towards the less congested wildlife paradise, Tarangire National Park for a full day’s game drive. The park becomes most active during the dry season between July and November, when large herds of game attracted to the everlasting waters of the Tarangire River make this reserve every bit as appealing as the Serengeti. Sundowner, dinner and overnight at Sangaiwe tented lodge-Tarangire. (Lunch & Dinner included)

Activities: Game Drive, Sundowners

Days 2Tarangire to Lake Manyara Park

Dawn game drives in Tarangire before arriving back at camp for a hearty breakfast. We depart towards nearby Lake Manyara National park and enjoy game viewing in the park. Regardless of the direction we approach Manyara from, the view is always fantastic. This shallow lake offers dramatic views and is home to rich bird life, Tree Climbing Lions and its Hippos which you can see at a closer range than many other places. Dinner and overnight at Country lodge Karatu. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

Activities: Game Drive, Sundowners

Day 3Serengeti

After breakfast we drive to the great Serengeti National Park viewing game enroute. We spend the next two days relaxing at the camp and enjoying morning and late afternoon game drives. Overnight at Serengeti tortilis camp
Serengeti is Africa’s most famous and Tanzania’s largest park covering 14,736 sq km and adjoins with the Masai Mara National reserve in Kenya. 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), it is sure to attract a string of prey such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, golden jackals and bat eared foxes.
(Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

Activities: Game Drives

Day 4Serengeti

Full day spent exploring the Serengeti with picnic lunch; following the migratory herds and in search of Big Five. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

A general pattern of the migration is as follows; in late November and December, the wildebeest migration herds arrive on the short-grass plains of the south and east of Seronera Serengeti area around Ndutu and include the north of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Dispersed across these plains, wildebeest and zebra are stay here through January, February and March, with most wildebeest calves born in a short window around February. Gradually they spread west across these plains, then around April they start their great migration north. By May the Serengeti’s wildebeest all seem to be moving north, migrating to seek fresh grazing and water. By May the Serengeti’s wildebeest all seem to be moving north, migrating to seek fresh grazing and water in the Moru Kopjes area and west Serengeti.

In June they congregate around the Western Corridor of the Serengeti before moving further northwards during July and August into the Masai Mara in Kenya where epic river crossings may be witnessed. September sees the herds spread out across the northern Serengeti, where the Mara River gushes through the northern Serengeti from Kenya’s adjacent Masai Mara Game Reserve offering more spectacular scenes of great panic and confusion at river crossings.

By October the wildebeest herds are migrating again with more accord: all are heading south, through western Loliondo and the Serengeti National Park’s Lobo area, returning to the green shoots which follow the rains on the short-grass plains of the southern Serengeti in November. Then the whole process starts again…
