Overnight: Arusha Serena Hotel, Bed and Breakfast

Deluxe Upgrade Option (A): Gran Melia Arusha Hotel, Bed and Breakfast

Day 2

After an early breakfast, your safari will start straight away with a drive through the countryside to Lake Manyara National Park. The journey is 125km and takes two hours, then continues into the game park enjoying your first wildlife viewing.

Lunch will be served at a restaurant in one of the properties located within the park.

After lunch you will continue through the park spotting wildlife before heading onto the Ngorongoro Crater. Your journey will be a further 75km taking around two hours. Check in, freshen up and relax before enjoying an evening meal and an early night as its an early start in the morning.

Day 3

A very early start today as you will drive to the crater rim and descend into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to 30,000 animals. This makes it one of the most unique and densely populated wildlife areas in the world.  You will be able to see the resident Lions and the huge bull elephants that dominate this landscape amongst many other species.

To make the most of your day, you will take a pic-nic lunch with you that you will have on the craters floor in a nice spot by one of the lakes.

As the sun starts to set, you will make your way back up to the top of the crater and back to your lodge for your evening meal and reflect on the wonderful sites you have seen.

Day 4

After breakfast, it is time to check out and head to the Serengeti. Your journey today will be just 150km which directly would take three hours. However, your driver will maximise your game viewing on your way through the Serengeti National Park stopping for any exciting game viewing.

Arrive in time for a late lunch and time to relax for part of the afternoon. Take an evening game drive before returning to the lodge for your evening meal.

Overnight: Serengeti Serena Lodge, Full Board

Deluxe Upgrade Option (A): Melia Serengeti Lodge, Full Board with drinks

Day 5

You will have a choice of activities today.  Either option involve an early start to catch the best game viewing of the day.

You can either take an early breakfast and a Gamedrive with your driver and start to explore the wonders of the Serengeti, or optionally (extra costs – ask for details) you can take a balloon safari which leaves very early and then experience a bush breakfast on landing.  This is a truly amazing experience and we highly recommend it.

After either option, you will return to the lodge for lunch.

You will have a later afternoon game drive to explore new areas of the Serengeti.  The Serengeti is well known for its extensive wildlife so you will be able to track and see lions, elephant, rhinoceros, giraffe and your driver will try his best to spot cheetah and leopard for you which is a very exciting experience.

Day 7

Enjoy breakfast and one last chance to see the wonderful game in the Serengeti on route to the airstrip for your short one hour flight back to Arusha.  One last lunch will be provided at a local restaurant in Arusha before you are transferred either to Arusha airport or Kilimanjaro Airport for your return flight home or onward journey.

We highly recommend adding one of our Zanzibar hotels to the end of this safari making a very relaxing beach stay at the end of a busy safari.
