This tour’s brimming with opportunities to see wildlife at its most raw so jump into that 4×4 and come along for the sensational ride!
  • Day 1 Arusha / Lake Manyara National Park

    Meet in the lobby of the Arusha Hotel and over lunch your tour guide will brief you on your upcoming adventure. As fast as you can say ‘go’, you’re off to Lake Manyara National Park. Stretching along the base of the rusty gold 600-metre high Rift Valley Escarpment, it was once quoted by Ernest Hemmingway as the ‘loveliest I had seen in Africa’. And lovely it is – see 100-strong baboon troops, blue monkeys, bushbuck and even a hornbill, and that’s just passing through the park gates! You’ll spend your first night dining and sleeping underneath the stars at Twiga campsite.

  • Day 2 Serengeti

    Get up bright and early for breakfast and then head off by 8am for a morning game drive through the park. Remember to look up – this area is famous for its tree-climbing lions! By midday, you’ll begin the journey to the famous Serengeti, home of the Maasai Mara, with a picnic lunch and game viewing en route to look forward to.

  • Day 3 Serengeti

    The Serengeti has the largest concentration of plain animals – 4 million and 500 species of birds, if you were wondering. Get right in the action and see nature take its course with predators chasing down their prey.

  • Day 4-5 Olduvai Gorge/ Ngorongoro

    Sleep enthuasiasts won’t get any rest on this trip – the animals wait no for man! Get up and on the road before 8 towards Ngorongoro via the Olduvai Gorge, which is the site of many fascinating archaeological findings – traces of pre-historic man dating back to 3.5 million years ago have been discovered here! The Ngorongoro is the world’s largest intact caldera – with sides of up to 600 metres deep, this is the stalking ground of around 20,000 to 30, 000 wild animals at any one time. You won’t know where to look! Day 5 is all about time on the crater- see Africa’s Big 5 as you drive across the dense forests around Soda Lake then ascend 2,000 feet from the deep crater and eat dinner at the top at Simba Campsite.

  • Day 6 Arusha

    After breakfast, it’s up and out of the park and back towards Arusha. Tuck into lunch at the hotel and then it’s time to end this animal-filled adventure.
