Day 1 - Arrival in Arusha & Transfer to Lake Manyara
Our guide will warmly welcome you upon arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport. After picking up any last safari supplies, we'll make our way to lively Arusha for lunch. Then we're off through Maasai villages to Lake Manyara National Park. Set against the Great Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is known for its incredible birdlife, lush landscapes, and famous tree-climbing lions! We'll arrive at our lodge in time to settle in and unwind before dinner.
Day 2 - From Lake Manyara to the Serengeti
After breakfast, we'll embark on an exciting morning game drive in Lake Manyara keeping eyes peeled for flamboyant flamingos, acrobatic baboons, and those iconic tree-climbing lions lounging in the branches. Later, we'll continue our journey northwest towards Serengeti National Park. Picnic lunch en route overlooking the beautiful plains. Arriving at our comfortable safari camp, unwind and refresh before settling in for dinner under the starry African sky.
Day 3 - A Full Day Exploring Serengeti National Park
A thrilling full day discovering Serengeti, undoubtedly Africa's most famous wildlife park! Known for the annual Great Migration when over 2 million wildebeest and zebras traverse the plains, Serengeti offers incredible diversity of animals year-round. Early morning and late afternoon game drives allow us to scout for the "Big 5" - lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, rhinos - along with giraffes, antelopes, hyenas and over 500 bird species! Our guide's eagle eyes will spot even well-camouflaged cheetahs. Overnight again at our camp.
Day 4 - Into the Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, we'll depart for Ngorongoro Conservation Area, arrive at the rim, and descend 600m into breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater. This UNESCO World Heritage Site delivers superb concentration of wildlife including lions, elephants, black rhinos, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and more, all in one place! We'll enjoy a picnic lunch near the hippo-filled lake before returning up the steep crater rim and heading to our lodge overlooking the landscape.
Day 5 - Wildlife En Route to Arusha & Departure
It's sadly our final safari morning already! After one last delicious breakfast, we'll make our way back to Arusha. Along the way, we'll stop at Lake Manyara once more for lunch and any last game viewing, admiring herds of buffalo and elephants. Our journey concludes with safe travels home from Kilimanjaro Airport reminiscing on the most spectacular 5 day Tanzania safari!
