Upon arrival in Kilimanjaro (JRO) you will be met by your driver/guide and transferred to the lodge on the outskirts of Arusha town on an active Coffee Plantation. Accommodation will be at Arusha Coffee Lodge in a Plantation Suite on a bed and breakfast basis.
After a relaxing breakfast and briefing we will start the drive on the safari highway towards Tarangire National Park. Tarangire is known for its massive population of Elephant herds and is a great starting point for any safari. Arrive around mid-day check-in. PM game drive returning in the early evening. Tree-house concept huts overlooking the reserve with all the amenities of a 5* boutique lodge. Accommodation will be at the Tarangire Treetops on a full board basis.
After an early breakfast enter Tarangire National Park for an AM game drive with picnic lunch. After lunch start the drive towards the Serengeti, home to the greatest concentration of large mammals on Earth, the migratory herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle roam widely in search of green grass and water. You will have a long en-route game drive to the camp in the North Central corridor, arriving in the evening afternoon. Accommodation will be at Serengeti Migration Camp on a full board basis.
After breakfast, you will go on an amazing game drive through the great Serengeti where you will see the “big five” in their natural habitat and -- if you’re lucky -- a hunt and a kill. You will be brought back for lunch to the camp or you may opt for a picnic lunch within the park. After lunch, you will go on another game drive through a different part of the Serengeti so you can really take in what this piece of wild Africa has to offer. After both AM and PM game drives, you will be tired and dusty so a well-deserved shower and an amazing dinner with night festivities at the camp will await you. Accommodation will be at Serengeti Migration Camp on a full board basis.
After a relaxing breakfast you will checkout, and we will travel back south through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with a game drive as you leave the Serengeti. You will arrive at the lodge in the later afternoon/early evening with some downtime before dinner. Accommodation will be at The Manor Ngorongoro on a full board basis.
After a very early breakfast 06h00, we will depart Karatu and enter the NCA (Ngorongoro Conservation Area) with picnic lunch, descending into the “Caldera” floor. Ngorongoro Crater, the Earth’s largest unbroken caldera and one of the wonders of our world. Wildly called a “Garden of Eden” the Crater contains the highest density of carnivores, which includes Cheetah, Leopard, and Lion. This is the only place in East Africa where one can easily observe a natural population of black rhino. After a full day spent you will head back to the lodge in Karatu leaving the Crater at 17h30. Accommodation will be on a full board basis at The Manor Ngorongoro.
After breakfast and check out we will start the drive towards Arusha for a goodbye lunch and transfer to JRO for flight 2 hours before departure.
