Package Itinerary

Day 1

Location:       Tarangire National Park           

Meal:             Breakfast, Picnic Lunch, Dinner

Activity:         Game drive safari

After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel and drive to Tarangire National Park for a full day of game viewing and photographing. Named after the river that flows through the park, Tarangire National Park is one of the lesser known Tanzanian National Parks, giving it a real air of undiscovered Africa.

Famous for its tree climbing pythons, massive baobabs and large herds of elephant, Tarangire National Park is small but still home to a significant wildlife population, with a density of wildlife matched only by Ngorongoro. Birding is particularly good here; the swamps, tinged green year round, are home to 550 bird varieties.

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

Maramboi Tented Camp: Maramboi Tented Camp offers permanent camp facilities and endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and palm-lined desert between Tarangire and Manyara Lake. A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins of humankind and an explanation of the Rift Valley and Africa's big picture. It is a complete semi-desert experience focusing on game drives. An impressive landscape from the Rift Valley gives the visitor an amazing natural welcome to an area extraordinarily rich in wildlife. The camp offers stunning views of the Manyara National Park, Rift Valley, Ngorongoro highlands and on clear days, even Oldonyo Lengai, a sacred mountain to the Maasai.

 

Day 2

Location:       Ngorongoro Crater                    

Meal:            Breakfast, Picnic Lunch, Dinner

Activity:         Game Driver Safari

Today, you will visit the Ngorongoro Crater, the main feature is a large, unbroken, unfolded volcanic caldera. The crater, which formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago, is mostly open grassland with two small wooded areas dominated by Acacia..

Game drives through the Ngorongoro Crater begin early in the morning in closed safari vehicles with pop – up roofs. Accompanied by an expert driver-guide, a magnificent experience is sure to be had! The descent into the crater is one of scenic beauty, as you make your way through lush forests, home to numerous elephants and buffalo. 
As you reach the inside of the Ngorongoro Crater, marvelling at the incredible landscape around you, your guide will take you through the grassy crater floor, the unbelievable fever tree forest, the banks of Lake Magadi and the surrounding marshes. Lunch is served picnic style, surrounded by the natural wonders around you as well as the exceptional wildlife, roaming freely, with which you share this extraordinary paradise.

Rhino Lodge: Rhino Lodge is ideally located on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater rim. The lodge was originally the home of Ngorongoro’s first conservator, and its developers have maintained the house’s original rustic, low-impact style and natural setting.

You will enjoy a picnic lunch enroute and then drive to Serengeti central doing game drive safari. The park covers 14,763 km² (5,700 square miles) of grassland plains and savanna as well as riverine forest and woodlands.

Serengeti Katikati Camp: A mobile tented camp located in Central Serengeti, strategically located to cover the vast Serengeti Plains. The camp offers comfortable accommodation and a unique opportunity to enjoy a real safari camp experience. The camp is only a two hour scenic drive from Oldupai Gorge Museum and Grumeti River.
