Day 1: Tarangire National Park
In the morning at 8.30 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Arusha and drive 120 km on a tarmac road to Tarangire National Park for game drives. After our picnic lunch, we'll continue with afternoon game viewing in the park to look for lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, python, zebra, oryx, impala and more. Over 450 species of birds have been observed in the park. Late in the afternoon, the driver will take you for dinner and your overnight at Bougainvillea Safari Hotel in Karatu.
Day 2-3: Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, you will drive towards the fertile crater highlands where the Iraqi people grow wheat, corn, and coffee. You will pass the Ngorongoro Crater before you reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park at around midday. The Serengeti is the largest park in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes including short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, mountains, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. Depending on the season, you will witness the migration of thousands of animals for which this park is famous. During the short rainy season in November and December, the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they return up north. Our overnight stay will be at Serengeti Safari Lodge in Serengeti National Park.
Day 4: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater
Dawn is a good time to watch wildlife, so you will be up early to join an early morning game drive. You will return to the camp for breakfast before heading out for another game drive in the park. In the Seronera region, you will often see wildebeest and zebra in close proximity of lions and other predators such as leopards and cheetahs. After a picnic lunch, you will continue your journey towards the Ngorongoro Crater. Once you have reached the crater rim, you will enjoy fantastic views of this 600 m deep collapsed volcano. You will have your overnight stay at Ngorongoro Wild Tented Camp at the crater rim.
Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater
After an early breakfast, you will drive down the steep and narrow road that takes you into the crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah. Here, the wildlife is just breathtaking and with a little luck, you can observe the Big Five—lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard—in just a few hours. You should also see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After a morning dedicated to game viewing and a picnic lunch, you will leave the crater in the early afternoon to drive back to Arusha, where you will arrive in the early evening.
