In just a week our experienced local guides can take you on a trip from the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, through the amazing landscapes of the Tarangire National Park, across the sweeping plains of the Serengeti and into the famous Ngorongoro Crater. If you have always dreamed of an African safari, these are the sites that you probably imagined, with rich populations of incredible wildlife roaming freely through breath-taking scenery.
Your adventure begins when you are met your guide who will drive you away from the bright lights of the city to the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Wake to views of the snow covered tops of Mount Kilimanjaro before heading towards Arusha, crossing the floor of the Great Rift Valley to Tarangire National Park for your first game drive. Home to large herds of elephants, Tarangire River is the only source of water for wild animals during dry seasons, making it a great place for game viewing.
The day starts with a drive to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, before you descend into the endless plains of the Serengeti. Your game drive through this famous park will give you the opportunity to spot the “Big Five” as you head towards your camp. You will have lunch under the acacia trees in the park, before you head out on another game drive until sunset before returning to your accommodation to enjoy dinner and drinks.
Wake up in time to watch the spectacular sunrise over the Serengeti, and head out on your first game drive at a time that is perfect for animal spotting. After a morning out you will have the rest of the day at leisure, relaxing until it is cool enough to set out on your second game drive when the animals are becoming more active once again.
A full day driving through the Serengeti towards the Ngorongoro Crater, with the chance to enjoy lunch and the spectacular scenery of the Ngorongoro Highlands en route.
Today you will explore the Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera that is home to such an abundant and varied range of wildlife that this UNESCO Heritage Site is widely regarded as one of the most thrilling game spotting experiences in the world. In the evening it is time to enjoy your last African sunset and dinner.
Your last day in Africa and to get your final fix of the amazing scenery and wildlife you will have one last game drive at Lake Manyara. Lake Manyara’s shores are a shimmer of pink, due to its large flamingo population, but is also home to a large elephant population, leopards and if you are really lucky you might even spot the tree climbing lions that the park is famous for. Head back to the airport for departure.
