DAY 2: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

Early morning after breakfast, we depart to 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 places, the vegetation is quite dense, including elephant grass, acacia woodlands and lush groundwater forest. The Park is well known for its elephant families, which can often be seen congregating by the river. You may also see giraffe, bushbuck and hartebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators, including lions and leopards. There are more breeding species of birds found in Tarangire National Park than anywhere else on the planet!

After Lunch and an extensive game drive, we head for our luxury partner lodges near Tarangire for dinner and overnight.

DAY 3: Maramboi to Lake Manyara National Park

Early morning after breakfast, we depart to Lake Manyara National Park which is an unspoilt paradise and is best known for its abundance of birds and tree-climbing lions. The dramatic western escarpment of the Rift Valley forms the Park’s western border.  To the east is the shallow, alkaline Lake Manyara. The lake covers a large area of the park, flooding and drying with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos during the rains. The name Manyara comes from the Maasai word ‘emanyara’, a popular plant which is used to build the protective enclosure around a family homestead (boma). The Park’s vegetation is diverse, ranging from savannah to evergreen forest. On your exploration of the park you may see giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and if you are lucky; lions lounging in the trees.

After Lunch and an extensive game drive, we head for our luxury partner lodges in Karatu for dinner and overnight.

DAY 4: Ngorongoro crater to Serengeti

After early breakfast, you will descend down the crater which is almost 600m deep.

The Crater was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself two to three million years ago. It is famous for both its geological delights and for being a natural reserve which is home to some of the densest large mammal populations in the whole of the African continent. The drive down the into the Crater is an adventure in itself and when you reach the Crater floor, you quickly find yourself amongst large numbers of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and more than 500 bird species. The Crater provides you with the best chance of seeing the endangered black rhino, which can sometimes be spotted in the open grasslands.

After Lunch and an extensive game drive inside the crater, we head for our luxury lodge in Serengeti for relaxation, dinner and overnight stay.

DAY 5: Full Day in Serengeti National Park

Early morning after breakfast, we continue with our game drive in Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is truly spectacular. It is famous for its vast open grasslands which allow for excellent sightings of wildlife. The Serengeti is Tanzania’s oldest National Park and it is also one of the oldest ecosystems on earth.  Its climate and vegetation have remained largely untouched for millions of years. Whilst the Serengeti boasts abundant wildlife, it is perhaps best known for the annual Great Migration.  Vast numbers of wildebeest; accompanied by large numbers of zebra and antelope move in an annual pattern, constantly seeking fresh grazing.  The precise timing of the Migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year.

After Lunch and an extensive game drive, we head for our Tented partner lodges for dinner and overnight.

DAY 6-8: Serengeti to North east coast of Zanzibar (Kiwengwa)

After breakfast, you will head straight to the airport to catch your flight to Zanzibar airport ZNZ and through (Stone Town) before travelling to the northern east coast of Zanzibar known as Kiwengwa. Kiwengwa Beach is located on the northeast coast of Zanzibar, 40 km from Stone Town. The sea-floor slope is smooth, the water deepens slowly and the tides are strong. The coast and bottom are covered with soft snow-white sand, tall palm trees grow around the perimeter. The Indian Ocean is warm, the azure water is clean and clear. Kiwengwa was originally a small fishing village without communication and tourist infrastructure. In recent years, authorities have given permission to build hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. Instead of the old dilapidated fishermen huts, guest houses, guesthouses, bungalows began to appear. The Maasai tribes own most of the stores and sell African souvenirs. Today Kiwengwa is a popular developed resort complex where vacationers from all over the world have fun.
