Tour Overview

7 Days Tanzania migration safari to Tarangire Serengeti & Ngorongoro crater

                  AIRPORT PICK-UP

Upon arrival at Arusha airport or Kilimanjaro International airport, transfer to Arusha, you will be met and briefed about your Tanzania Luxury Safari for 4 Days. Overnight stay at Venus Premier Hotel on Bed and Breakfast basis.

                  ARUSHA – TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

At 8:30 am after breakfast, you will be picked up from hotel by your safari guide and driven to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park is almost 3000 sq. km in size and is probably best known for its huge numbers of elephants and baobab trees. The name of the park comes from the Tarangire River which crosses through the park. Tarangire is especially spectacular during the dry season (June – November) as wildlife concentrations rival that of the Serengeti (since enormous populations of elephants and other animals are drawn to the Tarangire River as their only source of water). With its varied habitats and permanent water in the Tarangire River, the park is home to over 2000 elephants and 500 bird species. Dinner and overnight at Lake Burunge Lodge

                   TARANGIRE – SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast, depart for a game drive with picnic lunch boxes. The Serengeti National Park is the world’s last great wildlife refuge as it contains an estimated three million large animals, most of which take part in a seasonal migration that is one of nature’s wonders. The area covers 14,763 sq. kms and the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai ‘Siringet’, meaning endless plains. Eat dinner and spend the night at Kati Kati Tented Camp. 

                           CENTRAL – NORTHERN SERENGETI

After breakfast, you will move to the northern part of Serengeti near the Mara River. We can hope to see some migratory crossing. The endless plains of Serengeti are also the setting for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle – the 1.5 million wildebeest endless migration in search of fresh pastures. Each year they trek over 2,500km and are constantly threatened and followed by some of Africa’s greatest predators. Depending on the time of your visit, your driver guide will be able to share with you where the herd’s current location is at. Eat dinner and spend the next 2 nights at Mara Kati Kati Tented Camp. 

                   NORTHERN – CENTRAL SERENGETI

After breakfast, enjoy a game drive until noon and head back to central Serengeti. The Central Serengeti offers superb game viewing all year round due to its abundance of resident animals. Specifically, the Seronera River Valley in the Central Serengeti is a ‘must see’ on every safari regardless of the specific month of travel. Game viewing in Central Serengeti is at its best during the dry season (June – November) as resident animals are more concentrated in the immediate area due to the lack of water on the plains. Resident herbivores include impala, buffalo, hippo, warthog, topi, hartebeest, and giraffe. Resident carnivores include lions and leopards. Eat dinner and spend the night at Kati Kati Tented Camp. 

                   SERENGETI -NGORONGORO CRATER

Eat breakfast and enjoy a game drive until noon before heading to the rim of the Ngorongoro crater. There are several documented resident lion prides just within a one-hour game drive radius from Seronera. During the dry season, the resident prides begin to shift west and north in their territories and concentrate in the central region of the park. The dry season is a particularly good time for lion viewing in the Central Serengeti. The Central Serengeti is also one of the best areas in Africa to spot the elusive leopard. You may be lucky enough to encounter this majestic cat in the branches of the sausage trees that dot the banks of the Seronera River. After a walking safari, head to the Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge for dinner and to spend the night. 

                     NGORONGORO – ARUSHA 

At 6:30 AM, head towards the ngorongoro crater for a tour. After enjoying the migration safari for the last time, head back to Arusha back in time for your flight at the airport. Often called the eighth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact crater in the world. About 2 million years ago the Ngorongoro volcano erupted, and its walls collapsed. The volcano floor sank to create a natural enclosure with its 600m tall walls. Now, at over 19 kilometers wide, Ngorongoro Crater is filled with great areas of acacia forest, hippo filled swamps and open grasslands. These different habitats contain over 30,000 animals – including elephants, warthogs, flamingoes, magnificent birdlife, the rare black rhinoceros and all the predatory cats. The Maasai can also be seen grazing their cattle alongside the buffalo and wildebeest.
