Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Subsequently to a safari briefing in the morning, you will travel southwest towards the Tarangire National Park.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater

Following breakfast you will have a safari briefing, then drive to the crater rim from where you will take on the steep and adventurous trail into the crater. Here, within a few square kilometres, you can find all the animals that live in the East African savannah. You will see a diversity of wildlife ranging from the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – to wildebeests, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles and mountain reedbucks in the forests on the slopes.

The crater is also one of the best places to see the magnificent but almost extinct black rhino. You will spend the morning on a game drive followed by a picnic lunch. During the early afternoon, you will leave the crater and travel to the Serengeti.

The Serengeti National Park is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is here where the biggest animal migration in the world takes place. Herds of wildebeests and zebras cross the border between Tanzania and Kenya in search of fresh grass and water and predators are never far behind.

Tonight you will stay at the Kati Kati Tented Camp in the central Serengeti or Similar Accommodation.


Day 4: Serengeti National Park

Alternatively, adventurous guests can experience the Serengeti from the sky when joining a hot air balloon ride, followed by a champagne breakfast. This activity is optional and needs to be booked in advance. Those interested in seeing the visitor centre are also able to do so. Depending on time there will be another game drive in the afternoon before you return to the Kati Kati Tented Camp to spend another night.


Day 5: Lake Victoria

As you say good by to Serengeti National Park, You will have a game drive on your way out. There will be more time to spot animals you may not have seen already, perhaps the rare African wild dog, and thus on this day you might be able to tick off all the members of the big five group. After leaving the park, the journey continues to Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and the second largest in the world. The area around Lake Victoria is the most fertile and densely inhabited region of Tanzania. Here at the ocean-like lake, you will see another side of Tanzania – away from the masses you will experience how the local people live. You can take a walk along the lake shore and watch fishermen at work – an experience unavailable on the usual tourist routes. You will overnight at the Wag Hill Lodge or similar accommodation.


Day 6: Lake Victoria

Staying at Wag Hill Lodge. After breakfast you will join the local fishermen and a guide on a canoe trip on Lake Victoria. You will see how the locals catch fish the traditional way and admire the previous night’s catch. Back on dry land you will depart on the longest journey of your safari – the trip to the Masai Mara. The road towards the Kenyan border is a long and adventurous one, but it should be worth it as the “Mara” is reputed to have the highest lion population of all reserves in Africa. Other large cats also live here and can be spotted all year round, as their sightings are not dependent upon the seasons or the great migration. You will stay overnight in safari tents at Mara West Camp on the outskirts of the reserve.


Day 7: Masai Mara Game Reserve

Staying at Mara West Camp You can look forward to a day dedicated to safari and game viewing. On extensive game drives in your 4x4 safari vehicle you will explore the Mara Triangle, located in the north-western part of the Masai Mara. Far stretching grassland plains, dotted by acacia forests, dominate the landscape. You will take a trip to the Mara River, the greatest hurdle for the wildebeests and zebras on their yearly trek. At the end of October and the beginning of November, an incredible scene is set when the river swells to almost bursting levels and tens of thousands of animals prepare to cross it, knowing that possible death awaits them – as crocodiles are hiding just below the water’s surface. It can be a gruesome sighting. At other times of the year, hippos, hungry crocodiles and other animals can also be seen near the river. In the late afternoon, as the shadows start to grow longer, you return to your accommodation and spend another night at the Mara West Camp or similar accommodation. 


Day 8-9: Masai Mara Game Reserve

The following two days will be spent on game drives in the Masai Mara Game Reserve.  Together with your guide you can search for the Big Five. You are in no rush, so you have enough time to enjoy all the wonderful moments which can make your safari a magical experience. The Mara is home to many other interesting animals too, such as Thomson’s and Grant's gazelles, elands and Coke's hartebeests. Not often seen outside Kenya are the Masai giraffe, roan antelope and the nocturnal bat-eared fox. The reserve also has over 470 bird species including about 60 raptor species.
