DAY 1: GAME DRIVE IN LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK.
This morning we drive from Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park, the lakeshore teems with birds and the park is famous for its elusive tree-climbing lions. There is also a surprising number of large mammals and the striking cliffs of the Rift escarpment form a dramatic backdrop to our first experience of the region’s magnificent wildlife.
Dinner and overnight Lake Manyara Kirurumu Tented Camp: Full board.
DAY 2: GAME DRIVE IN SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.
Drive through Ngorongoro Conservancy; afternoon game drives in Serengeti.
En route through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we stop to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep-sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here is a small museum, we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back to 2.5 million years ago. Then we head into the Serengeti National Park arriving after lunch. The rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing amongst the vast plains that are broken only by acacia trees and the occasional kopje (rock formation). In January and February, we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffe, buffalo, and elephant, as well as many large predators such as lion, cheetah, and leopard.
Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Lodge: Full board.
DAY 3: ANOTHER FULL DAY GAME DRIVE IN SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK.
We have another full day in this wonderful park, rising early to make the most of our time. Our guides will choose the best spotting locations for the time of year; we can spend time at the Hippo pool watching these majestic animals laze about in the cool water happily living alongside the crocodiles, watch a big pride of lions, be in the middle of the migration, surrounded by wildebeest and zebras. We journey from the wide open plains to the kopjes: these volcanic rocky outcrops provide protection and shelter for a wide variety of animals and from the top, we can see out across the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. This diverse and interesting landscape will provide us with the ultimate in game viewing, we will hopefully see all of the plain game; elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, lions and if you are lucky the elusive leopard and cheetah, as well as huge amounts of interesting bird life such as the elegant secretary birds and the flightless ostrich.
Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Lodge: Full board.
DAY 4: GAME DRIVE IN SERENGETI TO NGORONGORO CRATER.
Morning game drive in Serengeti; afternoon drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
We have a final game drive in the Serengeti before heading back into the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater where we spend the night.
Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Kirurumu Tented Lodge: Full board.
DAY 5: GAME DRIVE IN NGORONGORO CRATER.
Sleeping near the Ngorongoro Crater means that we are one of the first vehicles to descend into the caldera. Ngorongoro is a Conservation Area rather than a national park. This means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Maasai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive down to the crater floor, we will gain a glimpse of the Maasai’s lifestyle. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino and leopard (if you are lucky enough). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steeps sides of the crater. Later this afternoon we will leave the crater.
Dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Kirurumu Tented Camp: Full board.
DAY 6: GAME DRIVE IN TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK.
Today we head to Tarangire National Park. The park, which has its own source of water, comes into its own in the dry season as birdlife congregates on the Tarangire River and herds of giraffe, zebra, buffalo and, in particular, the elephant can be seen. Predators such as lions and leopards are also regularly spotted here. Our lodge is located within the park. It has a large lookout area from where sundowners can be had whilst watching the game on the sweeping plains below.
Dinner and overnight at Tarangire Safari Lodge: Full board.
