Serengeti National Park

This is a magnificent 5-day Tanzania road safari that takes you to the best parks in the Northern Tanzania safari circuit including the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Tarangire National Park.

Beginning and ending in Arusha Tanzania, this 5-day tour opens with Tarangire National Park, known for its big herds of elephants. We explore the game park in a customized 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof. We stop in the bush for a picnic lunch on our game drive.

Tarangire hosts an array of wild animals, including Lions and Buffalos, as well as various Antelopes, Wildebeest, Giraffes, and Zebras. The national park covers some 2600km² of wilderness, characterized by undulating plains dotted with baobab and acacia trees.

After our wildlife adventure, we head to our first overnight stay at a tented camp/ lodge in or near Tarangire National Park. Accommodation options include Oliver’s Tented Camp, Chem Chem Safari Lodge, Swala Safari camp Maramboi tented camp, and  Tarangire Sopa Lodge.

Day two starts with a drive to the Serengeti National Park. We stop for lunch along the way and enjoy a game drive en-route to the camp/ lodge,  Serengeti is one of the best safari destinations in the world, rivaling Kenya’s Masai Mara. Here you will see a rich variety of wildlife roaming the African savannahs that stretch out as far as the eye can see. 

Our overnight camp is located in the central part of the Serengeti National Park, deep in the bush. Accommodation options include Acacia Seronera Luxury Camp, Acacia Seronera Luxury Camp, Zawadi Serengeti Camp, Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge, and Olakira Camp.

We spend the whole of day three exploring the Serengeti National Park of Tanzania, pausing for a picnic lunch in the wilderness. Here we will hopefully see the Big Five of Africa (Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant, and Buffalo), as well as a dazzling assortment of other wildlife.

During the annual wildebeest migration, usually between October and November, and again from April to June, masses (mostly Wildebeest, Gazelles, and Zebras) of plains game migrate across the rivers and plains of the Serengeti ecosystem.

On day four, we take a game drive through Serengeti Park on our way out of the national park, stopping for lunch as we go. We make our way to Olduvai Gorge, a deep ravine in the East African Rift Valley. We visit the Olduvai Gorge Museum to see the excavated remains of our ancestors, with Homo erectus remains that date as far back as 1.2 million years ago. 

Next, we visit the Ngorongoro Crater, home to one of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Accommodation options include The Highlands Ngorongoro, Ngorongoro Highlands, Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater, Gibb’s Farm, The Manor At Ngorongoro, and Ngorongoro Serena Lodge.

On day five, we descend to the Ngorongoro Crater floor, taking in stunning views of the world’s largest unflooded caldera on the way down. The crater is home to the Big Five and almost every kind of big mammal found in Africa.

The crater floor supports a variety of wildlife, including Elephants, Monkeys, Hyenas, Jackal, and herds of Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo, and other Antelope species. After a rewarding game drive in this World Heritage Site, we climb out of the crater and drive back to Arusha.

Our magical 5-day Tanzania road safari comes to a close in the evening in Arusha.
