Your journey begins. The guide will pick you up from your hotel at 8 am and start a beautiful journey across the Great Rift Valley for a full-day game drive. Although small in dimension (205 sq. miles), the park has breathtaking scenery and is very famous for its lush acacia forest, giant figs and mahogany trees, as well as for a growing population of baboons and blue monkeys. Permanent residents of this park include giraffes, elephants, impalas, and a huge amount of buffaloes. The lake is also home to a large number of hippos.

The landscapes of Lake Manyara are something that can not be described in words. The game drives along the lake provide stunning photo opportunities of giraffes and buffaloes in the foreground and the lake in the background. Some optional tours are possible, including a bike tour or a boat excursion. Afterward, you drive to the African Sunrise Lodge where you will overnight. Accommodation: African Sunrises Lodge

After an early breakfast, depart toward the most famous national park in the world, the Serengeti. The driving itself, although long, is spectacular. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time. As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in the local language, "endless plains". The park has 6,900 sq. miles (18,000 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon, defying your senses and perception of distances.

The Serengeti is the home of the great migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, and all kinds of antelopes. As for big cats and large predators, it's the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings which have been filmed in this park. After the adventurous game drive, you will overnight inside the national park at Serengeti Wild camp. Accommodation: Serengeti Wild Camp

Have a full day in the Serengeti National Park. We are completely flexible with your preferences and this day will be organized according to your wishes. On every day of the safari, your guide will discuss the best times for you, including the game drives and the wake-up times. For example, on this day, you could do a morning game drive, return to the camp for lunch and relaxation, and finish with an afternoon game drive. Otherwise, you could do a full-day game drive with a picnic lunch.

Today we wake up early and after breakfast, we will drive into the amazing Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest crater in the world. The crater is home to an estimated 30,000 large mammals. Due to its natural borders, there is an abundance of wildlife throughout the conservation area which is home to the Big Five, including the black rhino and elephant. You will also see hyenas and zebras to name a few. In the evening, we will overnight at African Sunrises Lodge located in Karatu. Enjoy a walk on their 5-acre farm and get a view of Lake Manyara from their viewpoint.

Today, we visit the last park and your safari adventure ends. We pick you up from the hotel at an agreeable time between 07:00 am and 08:00 am. However, animals are mostly seen very early, so leaving the hotel at 06:30 am is highly recommended. During the 2.5-hour drive, you will enjoy the view of beautiful nature, landscapes, and local communities. We'll do a full-day game drive in Tarangire which is famous for its large numbers of elephants, baobab trees, and tree-climbing African pythons. At the end of this tour, we will drive back to Arusha.
