Dag 2:

Welcome to Tanzania

When approaching the airport, the impressive Mount Kilimanjaro will welcome you to Tanzania – the first of many encounters with Tanzania’s wonderful nature.

Your driver will be waiting for you at the airport, ready to take you to your hotel. After check-in, you have the rest of the day at your disposal.

Baobab trees and elephants in Tarangire

After breakfast at the hotel, your driver will take you to the Tarangire National Park, a 4-5 hours’ drive.

Go on an eventful game drive in the wonderful park, which is especially known for its huge population of African elephants, an impressive bird life, and its centuries-old baobab trees, which are known as “the tree of life” by the locals and give the area a unique atmosphere and charm.

The Tarangire National Park is also home to many other animals such as lions, leopards, buffalos, wildebeest, zebras, giraffes, and much more – a great way to start your African safari adventure.

Dag 4:

The lush Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, proceed to the Ngorongoro Crater, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of The Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.

You will drive along the steep crater walls to the bottom of the crater, where you will enjoy a wonderful game drive.

The crater derived from a volcano which erupted and collapsed 2-3 million years ago, creating a lush paradise which attracts both mammals, predators, and a large population of birds, including flamingos, ostriches, crowned cranes, and secretary birds.

The Ngorongoro Crater boasts a large population of wild animals and is known as one of the best places to spot The Big Five – elephants, rhinos, buffalos, lions and leopards. There are also many other predators such as jackals, hyenas, and cheetahs.

Hippos can also be seen in the crater, along with gazelles, antelopes, and zebras, and it is one of the best places for experiencing the black rhino.

In the afternoon, you will proceed west towards the Serengeti which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered one of the best national parks in the world.

While driving you will most likely pass traditional Masai people looking after their land and animals. Wild animals can also be seen outside the parks as there are no fences.

Your camp is situated in the middle of the Serengeti National Park, so keep an eye out for more animals while getting settled in your luxury tent. The sounds and scents of the savannah will pass through the tent cloth and ensure you have a good night’s sleep.

Dag 5:

The incredible wildlife of the Serengeti

Rise and shine… You will get up early to experience the active animals before the heat from the sun causes many of them to seek shade. If you are lucky, you might even see a flock of lions busy devouring a prey from the night.

The endless plains of the Serengeti are breath-taking, and the wildlife is simply amazing. More than 500 bird species, about 70 large mammal species, and a large population of predators can be found in the national park, so the chances of seeing new interesting species today are quite good.

You will have lunch at the camp and have time to rest before the afternoon game drive.

Most of the year, from November till July, you also have the chance of experiencing The Great Migration in the Serengeti. Every year, more than a million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles migrate from the Serengeti in Tanzania towards the Masai Mara in Kenya and back again in search of fresh grass and water. Witnessing this incredible natural phenomenon is just breath-taking.

After a wonderful game drive, you will return to the camp to relax and enjoy your last night in the iconic Serengeti National Park.
