Welcome to Tanzania, your first choice for photographic safaris! You will be met by your professional safari guide upon arrival in Tanzania this evening and transferred to The African Tulip Hotel in Arusha Town for dinner and overnight.

Arusha, Tarangire National Park, Day 2

Drive to Tarangire National Park after breakfast at your lodge. The Tarangire River, which rises in the highlands of central Tanzania and winds its way through the game sanctuary, gives the park its name. During the dry season, the river attracts herds of plains migrants from the parched surrounding area to its shrunken – but permanent – brackish waters. Lolkisale Tented Camp will be our home for dinner and the night.

Day 3: Game drive in Tarangire National Park for the entire day.

Tarangire National Park is located in Tanzania. After breakfast, you will visit Tarangire National Park, which is home to large herds of elephants. In the park, you can go on morning and afternoon game drives. Lolkisale Tented Camp is where you’ll have dinner and spend the night

Tarangire-Lake Manyara National Park (Day 4)

This morning, your drive will take you to Lake Manyara National Park, where you will stop for a picnic lunch. The escarpment’s brown and red cliffs rise dramatically on one side of Lake Manyara National Park, which is located in a depressed valley. Springs emerge from the escarpment’s base, providing a welcome source of water. On the way to your lodge, take a game drive. Karatu Farm House Valley Lodge is where you’ll be staying for dinner and the night.

Day 5: Game drive in Lake Manyara National Park for half a day.

Manyara is home to over 380 bird species, including the hadada ibis, saddle-bill stork, Hottentot teal, plover, and African pied wagtail. Look for the playful velvet monkeys searching for food at the tops of the trees as you game view through the ground water forest. Tanzania is the ideal location for a photographic safari! You’ll be staying at Karatu Farm House Valley Lodge for another night.

Day 6: Serengeti National Park-Lake Manyara

Depart for Serengeti with a picnic lunch, stopping along the way at Olduvai Gorge, the site of Dr. and Mrs. Leakey’s discovery of the early human fossil. You will be treated to a short presentation by one of the Antiquities Deputies, who will explain what has been done and what is still happening.

Following the gorge, you’ll be taken to your own mobile tented camp. Before heading out for an afternoon of game viewing, settle into your camp. The Serengeti’s short grass plains, combined with an abundance of food in the form of large herds of zebra, wildebeest, impala, and buffalo, make it an ideal place to see cheetah on the hunt. Serengeti Tortilis Tented Camp is where you’ll have dinner and spend the night.

Day 7 & 8: Serengeti National Park’s Center

Nothing compares to having your own private tented lodge in the Serengeti. This isn’t “rough” camping, so don’t be concerned. Your en suite tented room has a comfortable bed and hot showers can be arranged quickly. The culinary delights prepared over an open fire are comparable to those served in five-star restaurants. And there’s nothing like stargazing around a campfire for a happy feeling. Today is a full day of game viewing. Serengeti Tortilis Tented Lodge for dinner and overnight

Day 9: Serengeti National Park (Southern Serengeti)

Another appealing feature of a private tented lodge is the freedom to set your own schedule. Today, you might want to spend some time relaxing in camp before going on a game drive in the Ndutu area of the southern Serengeti.

Ndutu Heritage Tented Camp (Private Luxury Tented Camp)

Day ten: Serengeti National Park (Southern Serengeti)

Another advantage of private tented camping is the freedom to set your own schedule. Today, you might want to spend some time relaxing at the camp before embarking on another full-day game drive.

Ndutu Heritage Tented Camp (Private Tented Camp)

Day 11:Concervation area of the Southern Serengeti-Ngorongoro

This morning’s drive will take you to a morning game drive in Serengeti National Park, where you’ll have a picnic lunch before continuing to Ngorongoro Crater for the night. The Ngorongoro Tortilis tented camp is where you’ll have dinner and spend the night.

Day 12: Game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater for the entire day.

“It is impossible to give a fair description of the size and beauty of the Crater, for there is nothing that can compare,” Professor B. Grzimek once wrote about Ngorongoro Crater.

You’ll quickly agree with the Professor as you descend to the crater’s floor. Grazers such as zebras and wildebeest dominate the landscape, but giraffes are noticeably absent due to a lack of food. On the crater’s floor, enjoy a full morning of game viewing. Ngorongoro Tortilis Tented Camp is where you’ll be staying for dinner and the night.

Ngorongoro Crater – Arusha, Day 13

Drive to Arusha this morning for lunch, then relax in the afternoon and go shopping in Arusha town before checking into The African Tulip hotel for a day use room.
