Day 1: Tarangire National park
Leave your lodge in Arusha and proceed to Tarangire national park. This entire day is spent on a long game drive into the furthest reaches of Tarangire National Park. Take a deluxe picnic, eat with a view over a waterhole or huge elephant herd.
Like any game safari, the drive is flexible, and you can return to the camp at a time that suits you or when you feel you’ve had enough of the sightings. Some visitors prefer to stay out in the bush until sunset to watch the herds as they return to their dens and kraals, while others like spending the afternoon relaxing at the lodge and watch the mammals roam past.
Day 2: Tarangire – Serengeti national park
Have a morning game drive after a satisfying breakfast for more opportunities to view more wildlife species. In the afternoon after lunch, transfer to Serengeti national park; a renowned world destination for the massive wildlife diversity including the big five and the famous great migration of the wildebeests.

Day 3: Game safari in Serengeti national park

Covering a land area of about 14000 square kilometers, Serengeti offers the best game drive experiences. A drive here guarantees you sights of the big five, the lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes. You will still spot the zebras, warthogs, giraffes, gazelles, antelopes, wildebeests and many others. This full day game drive also allows you view the great migration, where millions of wildebeests, zebras and gazelles converge in small columns to migrate looking for better pasture and water.
Day 4: Transfer to Ngorongoro Conservation area
As you travel to Ngorongoro crater from Tarangire, you realize that you’re soon embarking on Africa’s most unforgettable experiences. Bordered by an extinct caldera and a pink – dappled lake in the middle, wild life sightings in Ngorongoro are almost immediate!
Watch various prides of lions as they prowl, solitary elephant bulls marching around and elusive black rhinos grazing comfortably in the morning breeze. There are only a few thousands of these endangered rhinos remaining and Ngorongoro crater is one of the few places to meet them. In addition, there are almost a million wildebeests and you spot huge herds of them kicking up dust as they gallop across the floor of Ngorongoro crater.
As you enjoy a tasty picnic lunch overlooking a pool of hippos, the views of Maasai warriors grazing their cattle down the crater floor come so clearer as well as tense fights between lions and wildebeests. Spend the late afternoon and night at a gorgeous lodge regularly visited by wild game.
