You will be picked up from your hotel in the morning to begin your safari in Tarangire National Park. The terrain of this nature reserve is made up of bush savannah, seasonal marshes, and gigantic baobab trees, and the park is undoubtedly one of the greatest spots in East Africa to watch elephants. T

hey are not only found in thousands, but they also appear to be more acclimated to automobiles, allowing you to get closer to these massive beasts. It is not just the elephants that make this the one-stop answer for both bird and animal lovers, but also a diverse number of creatures such as Masai giraffes, numerous gazelles, antelopes, buffaloes, lions, leopards, baboons, and more than 500 different species of birds.

After the game drive, you’ll depart the park late in the afternoon and drive to the lodge for the night.

  • Distance: 140 km



After breakfast, we drive to the Serengeti National Park, passing via Karatu’s picturesque highland farms and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. We leave the highlands behind and descend into the Serengeti National Park, the heart of untamed Africa, with its vast grasslands stretching as far as the eye can see.

We travel to the Seronera area of the central park, one of the park’s finest wildlife habitats, which includes the Seronera River, which serves as a vital water source for the area and hence draws wildlife that is representative of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and take a wildlife drive in the Serengeti National Park in the afternoon.

You will be transferred to your lodge where you will spend the night after your tour of the park.

  • Distance: 205km



Following breakfast, you will spend the entire day in the Serengeti National Park on a game drive, stopping for lunch along the way. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to see hundreds of thousands of wildebeests, zebras, and Thompson gazelles as part of the great migration.

These herds normally migrate from the Kenyan Masai Mara across the northwest Serengeti to the plains in the south during the brief rainy season in October and November. The herds progressively return to the western and north-western parts of the Serengeti after the wet season in April, May, and June.

This timetable can, of course, fluctuate due to changes in rainfall, resulting in the animals moving at different times and along different routes. Your guide will do everything possible to locate the animals and ensure that you see them from the best vantage point in the national park. Naturally, the migration draws predators, and you might catch a glimpse of a kill in progress.

You’ll be staying at the same place for the night.



You’ll get up early to join an early morning game drive because dawn is an excellent time to see animals. Before setting out on another game drive in the park, you’ll return to the camp for breakfast.

Wildebeests and zebras are frequently seen in the Seronera region, often in close proximity to lions and other predators such as leopards and cheetahs. After a picnic lunch, continue your drive to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where you will spend the night.

  • Distance: 145 km
  • Overnight at: Rhino Lodge

After an early breakfast, you’ll drive down the steep, narrow road that leads to the crater’s entrance. Although the slopes are forested, the environment quickly transitions to savannah. The wildlife is breathtaking, and if you’re lucky, you might be able to see the Big Five — lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard – in only a few hours.

Warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos, and some of the area’s more than 500 bird species should all be seen. After a morning of wildlife viewing and a picnic lunch, you will depart the crater in the early afternoon for the trip back to Moshi, arriving in the early evening.

  • Distance: 273 km
