5 Days Safari Tanzania – Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

Arusha – Tarangire National Park

Depart Arusha in the morning and drive through the Masai Steppe to Makuyuni and over down to the Tarangire National Park. Third largest, of all parks in Tanzania the park is dotted with amazingly big Baobab trees and the extraordinary herds of elephants; Tarangire is quite a place not to miss while on an African safari to Tanzania.  The park is home to many animal species and some rare breeds like the Oryx and hirolas, and some rare birds species. No better place to retire in the late afternoon than Sangaiwe Tented Lodge with the breathtaking views over the plains and great sunset in the late afternoons. All meals included.
Day 2

Tarangire – Serengeti National Park.

It is quite a long drive so we got to wake up early and after an early breakfast at the lodge, we are off to the most popular game park in Tanzania. This is the Serengeti National Park where the plains never end. We can make a brief stop (at extra cost) at the Olduvai Gorge an important prehistoric site where fossils were discovered by the Dr Leakey and his wife Mary, a discovery that led to the theory that Africa is the Cradle of mankind. Entering the Serengeti via Naabi Gate we continue with game viewing in the afternoon on our way to either Thorntree Camp at in Central Serengeti. All meals included.
Day 3

Full Day at Serengeti National Park.

The whole day is spent at the Serengeti plains driving around and trying to locate animals. The driver will be in some contact with other drives around through the VHF radios fitted on all our vehicles so you are sure to see quite a lot of animal actions. Predators killing, predators chasing and antelopes running for their dear lives is a norm in the Serengeti and if you are lucky you will go out with a tale to tell. Serengeti is famous for many animal species, small and large alike. You expect to see elephants, zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, topis, hyenas, cheetahs, and the recently introduced black rhinos if you are lucky. Later in the afternoon before dark we retire to the Thorntree Camp at in Central Serengeti for some memorable time at the campfire. Dinner and overnight at the camp.
Day 4

Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater

On this day we are headed to the Ngorongoro Crater; the Eighth wonder of the world as it is popularly referred to. On arrival we shall descend to the floor for a full day of game drives breaking briefly for lunch by the hippo poolside picnic site. Game drives around Elerai Forests we shall see elephants and try out our luck to spot the leopard that way increasing our chances to spot the Big Five in one day. The Lions and the buffaloes we are almost sure of spotting them so why not go search for the cheetahs also. Later in the afternoon we drive up the Crater Rim and check in at the Rhino Lodge for a cup of coffee before dinner and overnight there.
Day 5

Ngorongoro - Back to Arusha

Visiting the Masai Village is an option and also going for a guided nature walk in the forests of Ngorongoro (activity fees apply).
