After morning breakfast at your hotel, our guide will pick you up and transfer to Ngorongoro conservation area, this scenic drive will take you through incredible landscape of Tanzania, on arrival you will check in to your lodge for relaxation and overnight

Day 2-Full day game drives in Ngorongoro crater

After an early morning breakfast with packed lunch you will descend into the Ngorongoro Crater floor for game driving and exploration. The crater is 600m deep, 16km across, and 265 sq. km in area. Enjoy the spectacular scenery and game viewing, in what has been described as the eighth wonder of the world.

Many of Tanzania’s last remaining black rhino can be seen grazing on the open grassland of the crater floor, surrounded by some of the 20,000 large animals that occupy the crater, including lion, cheetah, eland, zebra, and gazelle. Flamingo, among other bird species, can often be seen feeding at Makati Soda Lake as well.

Day 3-Drive to Serengeti national park for game drives

Head out after breakfast for the drive to Serengeti National Park. The word “Serengeti” is derived from the Masai language, meaning “endless plain.” En-route to the Serengeti, you can opt to visit Masai Village, a perfect place to explore the Masai culture and even participate in some tribal activities. Or visit

Olduvai Gorge, known as the Cradle of Humanity; Museum is a testament to the long journey that humanity has made from its humble roots in East Africa to its current state as the dominant species on earth. Enjoy a game drive en route to your camp.

Day 4-Full day game drives in Serengeti national park

This morning’s African adventure begins with an exploratory game drive through Tanzania’s oldest and most recognized National Park, the Serengeti. This location offers the most expansive game viewing in Tanzania. From predators to prey, great herds of grazing herbivores to tactically cunning packs of carnivores, life on the plains of the Serengeti can best be defined as a complete “circle of life.”

Spend today searching out Impala, one of Africa’s most beautiful and graceful animals. Previously thought to be part of the gazelle tribe, Impalas have been found to be so different that they are now classified as their own sub-family status. Leopards, cheetah, lions, and wild dogs prey on impala. Impala can reach running speeds of approximately 50 to 55 mph (80 to 90 km/h) to escape its predators.

Day 5-Drive back to Arusha

After a morning cup of tea or coffee, you will have a short early morning game drive in the park in search of more wildlife and later return to the lodge for full breakfast and refreshment and later start your drive to Kilimanjaro for your international flight.
