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. We pitch camp for a night under the stars at our chosen campsite. (Lunch & Dinner included)

Activities: Game Drive, Sundowners

Days 2Tarangire to Lake Manyara Park

We camp overnight at a campsite in Karatu. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

Day 3Serengeti

After breaking up camp we drive to the great Serengeti National Park viewing game enroute. We spend the next two days relaxing at the campsite and enjoying morning and late afternoon game drives. Overnight at Seronera campsite. Serengeti is Africa’s most famous and Tanzania’s largest park covering 14,736 square kilometres and adjoins with the Maasai 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

The general pattern of the migration is as follows: Late November and December, the Wildebeest migration arrive on the short grass plains of the South and East of Seronera Serengeti area around Ndutu, this includes the north of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Wildebeest and Zebra stay here through January, February and March, with most calves born in a short window around February. Gradually they spread west, then by May the Serengeti’s Wildebeest move north, migrating to fresh grazing and water in the Moru Kopjes area and West Serengeti. By October the Wildebeest herds migrate again heading south, through Western Loliondo and the Serengeti National Park’s Lobo area, returning to the green shoots on the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti in November.

In June they congregate around the Western Corridor of the Serengeti before moving further northwards during July and August into the Maasai 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 Maasai 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

We spend the full day exploring the Serengeti and depending on the season we will follow the migratory herds and the track Big Five. ( Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)
