Day 02: Game drive in Tarangire National Park.
After breakfast you will drive to Tarangire National park, Tanzania's third largest national park and sanctuary for an unusually huge herd of elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park, dwarfing the animals that feed beneath them.

Day 03: Tarangire - Serengeti National Park.
After breakfast you will head towards the Serengeti National Park. En route there is an opportunity to visit Olduvai Gorge.
It is within this steep sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s.
Here in a small museum we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years.
After lunch we drive into the Serengeti itself and the rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje. In December, January and February you will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle.
There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, and many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard.
In the evening you will drive to Angata Camp / Bush Camp for Dinner and Overnight. http://angatacamps.com/serengeti / http://www.tanzaniabushcamps.com/
Day 04 & 05: Another two full day game drive in Serengeti National Park.
We have another two full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, be in the middle of the migration, sometimes surrounded by wildebeest, sometimes by zebras, which travel with the wildebeest. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals and from the top we can look out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti.
This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain games; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions and it you are lucky the elusive leopard and cheetah, as well as huge amounts of interesting bird life, from the elegant secretary birds to the flightless ostrich. Both night accommodations will be at Angata or Bush Camp in Serengeti.

Day 07: Game drive in Ngorongoro Crater.
We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive in Ngorongoro we have a chance to glimpse something of the Maasai way of life. You will stop at Maasai boma where you will learn maasai culture and get time to visit their house and dance with them. There after you will drive to Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge for Dinner and Overnight. http://www.sopalodges.com/ngorongoro-sopa-lodge/overview
Day 08: Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha.
After breakfast you will descend into the crater for a wonderful game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro is considered as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 ft. high walls the Ngorongoro Crater has the highest wild animal density worldwide. Among the species are lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes, many birds and other species. You might expect to see the ‘Big Five’ in one day.
