Itinerary

Day 1 - Lake Manyara National ParkMeals: L D
Your safari starts today in Arusha at a central meeting point where you will be briefed on your upcoming safari. Then it’s straight out into the bush as you head for the Lake Manyara National Park. Kiririmu is a beautiful tented camp that oozes charm. It’s an ideal introduction to a safari and perfect for your first night in the Tanzanian bush. You will arrive in time for a late lunch after which you can explore the ground on food with a guide or head out on a game drive for your first taste of game viewing before returning to the lodge in time for dinner.

Accommodation: Kiririmu Tented Camp
Day 2 - Serengeti National park Meals: B L D
Today it is an early start as you set off for the famous Serengeti National Park. This famous namesake is the home to the annual migration which sees thousands of wildebeests cross over from the Serengeti National Park to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Mbuzi Mawe is a member of the Serena hotel group and with that comes the little luxury you would expect. Beautiful rooms all with magnificent views. After lunch we suggest you wait out the heat of the day in the shade or on the deck of your tent with a good book before you set off on a late afternoon game drive when the temperatures have cooled. Back at the lodge an evening with drinks and dinner waits you.

Accommodation: Mbuzi Mawe
Day 3 - Serengeti National Park Meals: B L D
Your second and last day in the Serengeti. As the sun rises we suggest you do the same and head out on an early morning game drive. These early mornings are the perfect time to spot game and this is when the animals are at their most active before the heat of the day kicks in. Back at the lodge breakfast will be waiting for you as you overlook the plains. After a relaxing morning which may consist of a nature walk or some more time out, lunch is served before you set off to make the most of your last afternoon in the famous Serengeti.

Accommodation: Mbuzi Mawe
Day 4 - Ngorongoro Crater Meals: B L D
Today you are transferred to the Ngorongoro Crater and the luxurious surroundings of Plantation Lodge. The Lodge is exquisite and provides all you need for a great last two days. After checking in and a late lunch, the Lodge’s pool will be a welcome sight and perfect for a cool down. As the late afternoon approaches you can explore the grounds or the next door coffee plantation before returning to the Lodge in time for dinner.

Accommodation: Plantation Lodge
Day 5 -Ngorongoro Crater Meals: B L D
An action packed day awaits you as you get up early and head straight out into the Ngorongoro Crater. The Crater is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world and the reason why, soon becomes clear. Filled with wildlife and stunning views, the Crater really is a must see on the safari enthusiasts’ list. After a full day out with a fantastic picnic lunch you will return to the lodge in time for evening drinks and dinner.

Accommodation: Platation Lodge
Day 6 - Tarangire National Park Meals: B L D
It’s the last day on safari and time to tick off the last of Tanzania’s famous park as you head for the Tarangire National park. Maramboi Tented Camp is the final stop and the perfect authentic end to your safari. Today you will spend your last night under canvas, true safari style. After a late lunch, the Park awaits you. It’s time for your last game drive before returning to the Camp for your last evening on safari.
