This safari takes you to four of the best national parks in Tanzania.

Lake Manyara is a good soft introduction to the safari experience. It is a magical and pretty park that winds its way around a mainly forested driving route between the banks of soda water lake and the impressive rise of the Great Rift escarpment.

The Serengeti National Park is justifiably famous for its huge concentrations of wildlife, especially the big cats, as well as being the stomping ground of the Great Migration, a massive accumulation of 1.5 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebras and 350,000 gazelles stretching their legs over 1,200 miles in an
annual race to find enough water and green grass for their survival.

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact caldera in an exceptional geographical position, forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 sq. km with sides up to 600m deep. It is home to as many as 20,000 to 30,000 wild animals at any given time.

The last national park on your itinerary is the Tarangire National Park, one of the more seasonal parks of Tanzania that boasts of great migratory movement and is a haven for bird lovers. The park also offers stunning scenery with its baobab-dotted landscape and presents a breath-taking concentration of elephants during the dry season.
Day 1 Arusha town to Lake Manyara 2 hours Camping

drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara park game drives with picnic lunch boxes, dinner and overnight at Sunbright Camp Site.

Lake Manyara National Park is a small but scenic safari park, excellent for birdwatching and a good area to find elephant, as well as the potential excitement of spotting a legendary Lake Manyara tree-climbing lion.

Elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings or heading towards the water to drink or wash, and the rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for possible animal spottings.

Warthog seem to thrive here, growing notably fat and tuskered, and it is a natural playground for baboons and monkeys. The tree-climbing lion of Lake Manyara inspire extensive theorising as to the wonders of evolution, and are also notoriously rarely seen.

Day 2 Lake Manyara/Serengeti 5 hours Camping

After breakfast depart for Serengeti park with picnic lunch boxes, game drives en route towards Serengeti park game , dinner and overnight at Seronera Camp Site

The National Park is broadly divided into three distinct areas, the Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards through the Lamai Wedge to the Maasai Mara. Most visitors enter the Serengeti through the southern Naabi Hill Gate, which opens onto the Seronera Valley; a vibrant wildlife area at the heart of the Serengeti.

Day 3 Full day in Serengeti National Park 7-10 hours Camping

06.30hrs Early morning game drives in Serengeti park, late breakfast at camp, followed by another game drive, dinner and overnight at Seronera Camp Site

Day 4 Serengeti National Park/Ngorongoro Highland Camping

After breakfast Serengeti park game drives, hot lunch at camp, then drive to Ngorongoro for dinner and overnight at Simba Camp Site.

Ngorongoro is a fascinating and unusual Conservation Area which includes the Ngorongoro Crater at its centre, and then extends through the Crater Highlands, in which local tribes are permitted to maintain their traditional lifestyles in as natural environment as possible.

This extraordinary volcanic landscape is rich and fertile, with stunning craters and lakes, and the high altitude creates a malaria-free micro climate. The crater is said to have the most dense concentration of wildlife in Africa. As such, Ngorongoro Crater has achieved world renown, and attracts a growing number of visitors each year. Even if time is limited this natural but accessibly small caldera ensures a rewarding safari.

The crater floor consists of a number of ecological environments that include grassland, swamps, forests and Lake Makat, a central soda lake filled by the Munge river. All these various habitats attract various wildlife to drink, wallow, graze, hide or climb.

Although animals are free to move in and out of this contained environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush forests and spring source lakes on the crater floor tend to incline both grazers and predators to remain throughout the year.

Ngorongoro Crater is also presently one of the most likely areas in Tanzania to see the endangered Black Rhino, as a small population are thriving in this idyllic and protected environment one of the only areas where they continue to breed in the wild.

The Crater rim, over 2,200 metres high, touches swathes of clouds for most days of the year, with cool high altitude vapours that seem to bring a clean lightness to the air, and also a chill. These highlands wake up to a misty fog in most months.

Day 5 Ngorongoro Crater/ Tarangire National Park Camping

After breakfast, Ngorongoro Crater game drives with picnic lunch boxes. Late afternoon drive to Tarangire National park for dinner and overnight at Tarangire Kigongoni Camp Site

Day 6 Tarangire National Park / Arusha town on own

After breakfast, enjoy game drives, hot lunch or picnic lunch in Tarangire National Park. Afternoon drive back to Arusha town.
