Your safari begins after breakfast this morning. Our first stop is Arusha town, for any last minute purchases before we head off on an exciting safari experience! We will be in the Tarangire National Park for lunch and an afternoon game drive. Tarangire is well known for its huge elephant population and baobab trees. It forms the centre of the annual migratory cycle that includes up to 3000 elephant, 25,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebra.

 Day 3:  Cultural Activities at Manyara                                                                       

After breakfast, we set out to experience the cultural diversity of Mto-wa-Mbu, starting at the market and visiting a Chagga family producing banana beer and passing by many different farms. On the way, your guide will introduce you to the various fruits and vegetables growing in the area and explain the irrigation system that sustains local crops. After having a delicious, home-cooked meal in a local Mama’s home, we go back to the lodge for a rest, before our visit to the nearby children orphanage centre and school in the afternoon.

 Accommodation:               Rift Valley Photographic Lodge or similar

Day 4:  Lake Manyara National Park – Lake Eyasi                                    

After coffee and breakfast, we head towards Lake Manyara National Park for an early morning game drive. This spectacular national park is located at the north-western corner of Lake Manyara, a shallow soda lake at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. Lake Manyara is not only known for its large flocks of flamingos, but also for the elusive tree-climbing lions. After lunch and a short afternoon game drive, we head towards our lodge at Lake Eyasi.

 Accommodation:               Lake Eyasi Safari Camp or similar

 Day 5:  Lake Eyasi                                                                                                      

Today’s activities are interacting with local Bushmen & Blacksmiths communities. The Hadzabe Tribe, live in groups hunting with bow and arrows and gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits, much as humankind lived in the Stone Age. We will obtain an in-depth look at how they continue to survive and adapt to their harsh environment and the challenges they face in continuing their nomadic existence. The Hadzabe have close relations with the Datoga tribe, blacksmiths who have developed their trade over centuries and still practice it very much the same way today. They produce the arrow heads for the Hadzabe and brass trinkets, some of which will be for sale by the maker himself.

 Accommodation:               Lake Eyasi Safari Camp or similar

Day 6: Lake Eyasi - Lake Ndutu                                                                 

This morning, we head through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area via Eyasi escarpment to Endulen, Ndutu open area towards the Serengeti National Park. We will stop at a Masai village, which is not a touristic Masai Boma, for a cultural encounter of a life time. The Masai people are semi-nomadic herders, who choose to live a traditional lifestyle and are known for their distinctive traditional attire. After lunch, we embark on a game drive within the park on our way to the lodge.

 Accommodation:               Kisura Tented Camp or similar

Day 7:  Serengeti National Park                                                                                 

Today our game drive will lead us towards the central part of Serengeti National Park. We look for large herds of wildebeests pounding the grasslands, while hungry predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs prey upon the youngest and weakest members of the herds. The Serengeti’s endless plains provide an exceptional landscape for wildlife viewing throughout the year.

 Accommodation:              Kisura Tented Camp or similar

Day 8:  Serengeti National Park                                                                                 

Enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is renowned for its annual wildebeest migration and large predator population. From February to May, a herd of over a million wildebeest (gnu) migrate for the Western Corridor of the park, in search of greener pastures. The Serengeti’s other animal attractions include lion, leopard, zebra, Thompson gazelle, impala, Grant’s gazelle and buffalo. Most of the park is open swathes of grassland, broken by isolated granite kopjes (hills) and patches of acacias woodlands. 

Accommodation:               Kisura Tented Camp or similar

 Day 9:  Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro – Lake Manyara                               

We take an early breakfast at camp and then head to the Ngorongoro Crater. On arrival we go through the registration process and descend to the floor of the world’s largest unbroken caldera for the most wonderful day of game viewing. We will have lunch at the Lerai picnic site at the side of the hippo pool and continue with a game drive up the crater rim.

 Accommodation:               Rift Valley Photographic Lodge or similar

Day 10:  Lake Manyara - Arusha                                                                               

After breakfast we explore the colourful town of Mto-wa-Mbu for some last minute pictures and curio shopping. Afterwards we head to Kilimanjaro International Airport to connect with your International flight back home or proceed with your second part of your holiday in Tanzania.
