The park has great landscapes including plain known as small Serengeti, Tarangire river which acts as a major magnet for animals during the dry season. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. The park also offers a large number of Buffaloes, Zebras, Wildebeest, Giraffes, Lions, Cheetah, Leopards, Impalas, Gazelles, warthogs, and wild dogs which are occasional seen. The park is also enriched with birds with more than 400 species. During the lunch hour, we will stop at a picnic site for lunch and continue with the game drive until the evening when we drive to the camp overnight. Dinner and overnight at Fanaka Campsite.
Day 2 TARANGIRE NATIONAL – SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
Non-game-viewing travel time: 4hours Distance: 242 km. After breakfast, we exit Tarangire and head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park. Dinner and overnight at Tumbili public camps
Day 3 SERENGETI
This day will be spent on a game drive in the Serengeti. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are (predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals). 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 central Serengeti, while in July to October they are in North Serengeti. The yearly trek is determined by the rainfalls and the location of the herds might vary from year to year but your guide will know where to find the animals and where to see them best. Apart from wildebeests and zebras, you will also spot predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs as well as all big fives. Dinner and overnight at Tumbili public campsite
Day 4 SERENGETI - NGORONGORO CARTER
Non-game-viewing travel time: 2hours Distance: 147 km, 91 miles After breakfast, we continue with a game drive until lunchtime. After lunch, we head to Ngorongoro overnight. On the way, we can experience the Maasai traditional life and experience a little bit of these cultural people lives in the Ngorongoro conservations. Dinner and overnight at Simba Campsite
Day 5 NGORONGORO CRATER – MOSHI/JRO
Non-game-viewing travel time: 3hours Distance:181.21 km. After early breakfast, we will descend over 600 meters into the crater for a game drive for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by a year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. This is only the pack that you can see easily black Rhino than any other park. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater and act as a home for flamingos and hippos. Apart from animal, the park has the most wonderful landscape and its a very beautiful caldera park. We will have lunch at the picnic site. In the afternoon, after lunch, we depart the create and drive back to Moshi.
