Meal Plan No meals inclusive today
Day 2: Walking Safari & Game Drive in Arusha N.P.
After a tasty breakfast you will be picked up from the lodge. An hour’s drive will take you to Arusha N.P., a small but beautiful park offering a wide variety of spectacular landscapes at the foot of Mount Meru. The fifth-highest peak in Africa dominates the park’s horizon.
Arusha N.P. is special because it is one of the few parks in Tanzania where you have the opportunity to do a safari on foot. This opportunity to get down to ground level with the animals is something that should not be missed!
The walking safari takes 2 to 3 hours during which you cross the Jekukumia River and visit a beautiful waterfall where you can take a refreshing ‘shower’. The shadowy montane forest is inhabited by inquisitive blue monkeys, many colourful birds and is the only place on the northern safari circuit where the acrobatic black-and-white colobus monkey is quite easily seen. Also on this walk, you have a chance to spot zebra, buffalo, bush-buck and waterbuck.
It is very exciting to approach animals on foot and a totally different experience than game-viewing by car. The guide stops regularly, not merely pointing and naming but telling you about birds, insects, trees, animal droppings, the medicinal use of plants and which animals eat which plants.
Lunch will be at a quaint picnic spot and then in the afternoon, you continue your safari by vehicle. During the game drive you pass the tranquil beauty of the Momella Lakes which are tinged pink between May and October with thousands of lesser and greater flamingos and many other migrant birds. Giraffes glide across the grassy hills between grazing zebra herds, while pairs of wide-eyed dik-dik dart into scrubby bush like overgrown hares on spindly legs.
At sunset, you will return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Journey time: 1 hour, each way
Accommodation: Arumeru River Lodge

Meal plan: Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner
Tours departing between January and May or in November/ December, will visit Lake Manyara N.P. on Day 3.
Day 3A: Lake Manyara N.P.
After an early breakfast, you will be travelling to the second national park of this trip: Lake Manyara.

On arrival you will stretch your legs during a 2 to 3-hour village walk in cozy ‘Mto wa Mbu’. Here you will meet the local community, taste homemade banana beer, learn about the Makonde woodcarvings and listen to your guide tell you everything about the way of living in this village.
After the village walk, you will have a local lunch. Together with the highly respected Miss Bibi you prepare a delicious Swahili meal.

In the afternoon you enter Lake Manyara National Park. This is a small but very beautiful park offering breathtaking views, excellent game viewing and an incredible array of birdlife. You have a chance to spot zebra, baboon, warthog, giraffe, impala, elephant, hippo, wildebeest and the rare tree climbing lion.

Your accommodation for tonight is Manyara Wildlife Safari Camp. Take a refreshing dip in the inviting outdoor pool and enjoy the fantastic sunset with a cold drink on the veranda!
Journey Time 2 hours to Mto wa Mbu

Meal Plan Breakfast, local lunch, and dinner
Tours departing between June and October will visit Tarangire sN.P. on Day 3.
Day 3B: Tarangire National Park
Today, after an early breakfast, you will be traveling to the second national park of this trip; Tarangire National Park. The game drive can begin!

Tarangire is best known for its many gigantic baobab trees and its large herds of elephants; it is a home to approximately 2,500 individuals and large herds are regularly viewed. You can also spot many different animals like leopard, zebra, impala, warthog, eland, buffalo, waterbuck and lion. Also the birders will have so much to see; more than 500 different bird-species are present.

This park hosts the biggest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. It is also the only place in Tanzania where the oryx and gerenuk are regularly spotted.

Your driver/guide will have a lunch-box for you so you can picnic at a beautiful spot in the park after which your safari continues. At the end of the safari you head for the Tarangire River Camp perched on high for perfect views of the nearby river branch. Relax in the breezy lounge of the main lodge for a sundowner.
Journey Time 2 hours to the park entrance
Accommodation Tarangire River Camp

Meal Plan Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner
Day 4: The Serengeti
After breakfast, you depart for the most famous safari park in the world: Serengeti N.P.
The Serengeti hosts the most extensive population of wild animals on earth and has a complex and untouched ecosystem. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the language of the Maasai, a description that the Serengeti completely lives up to. These endless plains have to be experienced to be fully appreciated!

You visit the heart of the Serengeti, Seronera Valley. This valley might be termed as the ‘classic’ Serengeti; short grass plains with all different kind of wild animals ranging from the impressive lion to the naughty mongoose.

After the incredible impressions of the Serengeti, you will settle into a luxury tented camp. Mbuzi Mawe is uniquely and cleverly located at the very epicenter of the Serengeti. Its well-appointed permanent safari tents have all the comforts of home without spoiling the natural feeling of these unique surroundings.
Journey Time 2 hours to the park entrance
Accommodation Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp

Meal Plan Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner
Day 5: The Search for the Migration
After breakfast you go deeper into the Serengeti in search of the migration. The Great Wildebeest migration is one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World”. Nowhere in the world there is a movement of animals as immense as this.
The principle players are the wildebeest, followed by Thomson’s gazelle, zebra and eland. The lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs and lesser predators await the annual coming of the migration with eager anticipation.
The annual 800-km journey is a cyclical pilgrimage which has no real beginning or end. The precise timing of the migrations changes annually and is an unpredictable and spontaneous natural event depending mainly on the rainfall pattern of each year. Because of the global climate changes, the annual pattern changes but a general trend can be observed.
Below is an overview of the various (semi-)luxury accommodations used in the Serengeti during the different periods of the year:
Period Day 5 & Day 6 Accommodation
January to March Lake Masek Tented Camp

April and May Serengeti Serena Lodge

June and July Mbalageti Tented Chalet

August to October Bologonya Under Canvas

November Mbuzi Mawe Tented Camp

December Lake Masek Tented Camp
Journey-time: Dependant on the migration period
Accommodation: Dependant on the migration-period
Meal plan: Breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner

Day 6: Game driving in Serengeti National Park
Another day completely dedicated to the great migration!
With your packed lunch in hand you drive out to find the migrates. There is plenty of time to take in this impressive spectacle! The safari will be completed by also looking for hungry predators such as lions, hyenas, leopards and cheetahs that move along with the herd hoping to fill their stomachs.
Accommodation Dependent on migration (see Day 5)
Meal Plan Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner

Day 7: Last Day in the Serengeti
After an early breakfast, you visit the migration one more time on your way out of the beautiful Serengeti.
You travel to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area which lies immediately adjacent to Serengeti National Park. Here you will stay at Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge with its rooms strung around the rim of the crater providing uninterrupted views over the crater’s unmatched splendour.
Accommodation Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

Meal plan Breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner
Day 8: Safari Ngorongoro Crater & Return to Arusha
In the morning, you will have a game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater!
As an UNESCO World Heritage Site the crater offers a unique biosphere which has remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. There are very few places in the world where you can find such a large population of wildlife throughout the year. Deep within the crater, enclosed by towering walls, you have a good chance of spotting ‘The Big 5’: Lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. For the latter two you need a bit of luck as they tend to shy away.
Approximately 30 000 animals live on the crater floor!
You have your packed lunch in the crater and then head back to Arusha where you will arrive in the late afternoon.
You will stay in a very pleasant and comfortable accommodation just outside Arusha town known for its great meals.

Accommodation Onsea House

Meal Plan Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner
