Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met and transferred to Mt Meru Hotel overnight on a B&B basis.

Arusha is a city in East Africa’s Tanzania, located at the base of volcanic Mt. Meru. It’s a gateway to safari destinations and to Africa’s highest peak, 5,895m Mt. Kilimanjaro, lying some 100 kilometers northeast. To the west lies Serengeti National Park, home to wildlife including lions, rhinoceros, giraffes, and leopards. Annual migrations feature huge herds of wildebeests crossing its plains.

At 7 am after breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel by your safari guide and driven to Tarangire National Park. Enjoy the wildlife!

Overnight at Maramboi Tented Camp

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided. 2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided. Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June – November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River, the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species.

After breakfast drive to Serengeti National Park

Enjoy game drives. Overnight at Kubu Kubu Tented

Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. 2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

The endless plains of Serengeti are also the setting for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – the 1.5 million wildebeest endless migration in search for fresh pastures Each year this huge herd of wildebeest (along with over 200,000 zebra and gazelle) migrate in a clockwise direction around the Serengeti, up to the Masai Mara in Kenya and then back down to the Serengeti to have their young (over 8000 wildebeest are born a day between mid-Feb and mid-March). Each year they trek over 2,500km and are constantly threatened and followed by some of Africa’s greatest predators. Depending on the time of your visit, your driver guide will be able to share with you where the herd’s current location is at.

Enjoy a full day in Serengeti

Overnight at Kubu Kubu Tented

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq km and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains.

After breakfast, enjoy a morning game drive, before driving after lunch, back to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided. 2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided

The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must-see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel. Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June – November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water on the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest, and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lion and leopard.

With picnic lunches descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for a crater tour. Later after the tour, you will drive back to Arusha overnight at Mt Meru hotel Breakfast and lunch provided.
Often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometers wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps, and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals – including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros, and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
2 small bottles of water (500ml) per person are also provided.

Today you will get transfer to the airport for your flight back home.

Breakfast provided.

5-day Private Safari from Arusha: Tarangire - Serengeti - Ngorongoro

1 Week Ago

Last November I decided I wanted to celebrate my big 35th birthday with a safari in Tanzania and my dad onboard. I was looking for a father-daughter adventure of a lifetime and that's exactly what we got!

Amazing, memorable safari.

Our safari surpassed all expectations. It was planned to suit our needs, with good communication and service in the run-up to the trip. The trip itself was superb in every way from beginning to end.
