Program Summary

This is a short safari program to visit to Africa's most exciting wildlife destination in Serengeti National Park where you will find the home of world largest mammal migration. In Ngorongoro Crater you will find a home to a immense variety of wildlife species including the big five (Lions, Leopards, Rhinos, Buffaloes and Elephants) and plenty of birds and vegetation. The trip has flexible programs and departures starting and ending in Arusha, Tanzania. See the program detail by day section below for a more detailed description.

Arrival in Arusha

You will be collected by our professional guide at the airport and be transferred to Arusha for check in at the hotel where you will spend an overnight plus safari briefing in the next day before departure to Serengeti National Park

Day 1
Serengeti National Park Game Viewing

Early in the morning we will pass through Masai territories where you are sure to be tempted by Masai selling beaded jewelry and wooden carvings. We will head out in our 4x4 safari vehicle to Serengeti plain. The drive takes us through rolling plains and traditional Masai herdsmen can be seen tending their cattle and goats. We arrive at Naabi Gate, the official entry to the Serengeti by mid afternoon.

Day 2
Siringitu Adventures and Ngorongoro Game Viewing

We will do game drive through the morning in Siringitu - the place where the land moves on forever for the Maasai.

We leave the plains and enter Ngorongoro highlands in the afternoon. A visit to a Maasai boma is arranged (optional) and Maasai worriers perform the traditional jumping dance for us. We can also visit a local school (optional). The Olduvai Gorge Museum is also a stop off point where you can find out about the work of the Leakey’s (optional).

Our overnight camp tonight is near the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. We are at altitude here, so wrap up warm tonight.

Day 3
Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha

This morning we are up before sunrise to visit Ngorongoro Crater. The Crater is a perfectly intact volcanic caldera and known as the "Noah’s ark" of game reserves. During our morning game drives again there is the chance to view the "big 5": lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, as well as plains game peacefully grazing including zebra, gazelle, impala and wildebeest. Hippopotamus are found lolling in the pools and Lake Magadi can be rimmed with the pink of greater and lesser flamingo.

We stop off in the bustling village of Mto Wa Mbu with its extensive markets where we can wander and buy Maasai souvenirs. We enjoy a prepared barbeque tonight back in the Arusha campsite for our final night together.

Day 4
To Arusha to the Airport

We will offer our farewells and travel back to Arusha. This is the last chance to wander in the city surroundings and reflect on the life changing experience we have just shared. Thereafter we will be happy to drop you at the airport or in a central location in the city.
