Ever dreamed of seeing some of the top predators in the world? Tanzania is the place to go! It's home to Serengeti National Park which hosts the most impressive animal migration in the world, Tarangire National Park where you'll find an unusually high elephant population, and Ngorongoro Animal Preservation where there's an insanely dense population of exotic animals all sharing one watering hole. Here are the full details...
Day 1 - Catch your flight
We'll help you book your flights if you'd like, just email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we can even set price alerts for you so that you know when the prices are going up and down.
Day 2 - Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya
When we arrive we'll check into our hotel and go through a quick orientation with our native, English speaking guide. We'll head out to a local restaurant for a bite of traditional Kenyan food (it's the only meal not included on the trip), then spend the rest of the day exploring Nairobi--a city dubbed the "New York of Africa". Tomorrow the wildlife adventure begins!
Day 3 - First night in the parks
We'll have a private shuttle waiting for us in the morning to bring us to the parks. It'll bring us to our private safari vehicles, which is how we'll get around the national parks from here on out. After we have a quick picnic, we'll move onto Tarangire National Park, which is where we'll camp for the night. Tomorrow is a full day in the park!
Day 4 - Full day in Tarangire National Park
Tarangire is one of Tanzania's largest parks and a sanctuary for an unusually large elephant population. Majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the park. Animals concentrate along the Tarangire River, which provides the only permanent water supply in the area. There is a great diversity of wildlife including lion, leopard, cheetah and up to six thousand elephant. Your morning will be spent game viewing and then in the afternoon, return to your tented camp, which offers nice walking tours. Your afternoon will be spent on a walking safari. Enjoy overnight camping within Tarangire National Park.
Day 5 - From Tarangire to Serengeti National Park
After breakfast we'll drive to one of the most famous game parks in Africa, the Serengeti via the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Here is home to millions of wildebeest during the migration and over the huge flat plains you are likely to find lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and many other small predators. Your afternoon can be spent on game drive before enjoying dinner and the experience of sleeping in the middle of the Serengeti. Overnight camping in Serengeti.
Day 6 - Full day in Serengeti National Park
Today you have a full day to explore the Serengeti. Break the day into morning and afternoon game drive or take a picnic lunch for a full day game drive. Overnight camping in Serengeti.
Day 7 - Serengeti to Ngorongoro National Park
This morning you will depart Serengeti and travel to the Ngorongoro Crater
Descend into the Ngorongoro Crater – a wonderful haven for wildlife. Ngorongoro is unique in that almost all the wildlife live within the crater walls hence you have the opportunity to find game easily. Rhino, in particular, can be seen regularly as well as prides of lion and other predators like cheetah. Enjoy your full day game drive as well as lunch by the hippo pond.
Overnight camping on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater
Day 8 - Ngorongoro to Empakaai Crater
This morning you will travel to Empakaai Crater for a walking safari. This crater is less famous and less visited than Ngorongoro Crater, but very interesting for a walking safari, off the beaten track. You will experience the rare sense of pure solitude and peace, found only in remote, pristine places. Overnight camping at Empakaai Crater.
Day 9 - From Empakaai Crater back to Kenya
This morning you will depart the Empaakai Crater and Ngorongoro Conservation Area, travelling back to Arusha. Enjoy some quick lunch before you board your Coaster Shuttle bus to Nairobi. The shuttle bus will drop you at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in time for your home-bound flight.
