After breakfast in your lodge in Arusha we’ll drive to Tarangire National Park – Tanzania’s 6th largest national park infamous for its vast herds of elephants. The diverse landscape and undergrowth features Baobab trees, dense shrubbery, high grasses and exotic vegetation that cannot be found anywhere else in the northern Safari circuit.
After a full day of adventure and game viewing, you’ll be transported back to the Tarangire River Camp where you’ll enjoy dinner and rest for the night.
Today we’ll visit Ngorongoro Crater – the world’s largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic calderas. The crater was formed by a large volcanic explosion that took place 2-3 millions years ago, and measure 2,000 feet deep and 100 square miles in diameter. It has one of the largest wildlife populations in Africa and is one of the world’s most untouched wildlife sanctuaries. The Ngorongoro Crater is home to over 30,000 wildlife species including lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalo and leopards.
On your third Safari day we’ll visit the Olduvai Gorge, known as the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ where the early primate fossils—dating back 2 million years—were discovered. We’ll then process to Serengeti National Park – the world’s most renowned wildlife preserve. The park’s 5,600 square mile plains is rich with wildlife-viewing and scenic landscapes. We’ll make our way to the Soroi Serengeti Lodge for the night.
We’ll return to the Serengeti National Park to continue viewing the vast herds of roaming wildebeests, zebras and gazelles, along with groups of elephants, giraffes, and buffalos, as the lions, leopard, cheetah, hyenas and jackals stalk their meals. We’ll spend the night at the Soroi Serengeti Lodge.
After breakfast and a brief game drive, we’ll head to Seronera to board a short included plane ride from the central Serengeti back to Arusha airport, arriving around midday.
