Detailed Itinerary

Day 1; Arusha- Lake Manyara

Early Morning Transfer by Road, Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park. Come with us on a guided game drive through Lake Manyara National Park. Strung out in the shadow of the Rift Valley escarpment, that great fracture in the earth’s surface that divides Africa in two, Lake Manyara is one of Tanzania’s more unusual parks.

Here you’ll certainly see the elephants for which the park is famous, and, if you’re really lucky, one of the park’s equally well-known tree-climbing lions. There’s also a lake filled with wading birds, plenty of olive baboons, and dense forests that make you feel that an exciting animal could emerge from the trees at any moment. It’s a wonderful chance to mark the transition between the lower plains and the Crater Highlands (with Ngorongoro Crater) away to the west. Overnight at Farm of Dreams Lodge.

Day 2; Karatu-Serengeti

Early this morning we’ll be taking you to the next stage of your safari, but you’ll also get to enjoy one last game drive along the way. A guided game drives through Serengeti National Park is one of the best safari experiences you can have anywhere in Africa. Apart from the signature savannah grasslands and the park’s amazing wildlife, your guide will show you all that’s good about the Serengeti. 
Overnight at Embalakai Camp, you’re immersed in the wild Serengeti alongside a river and with savannah views stretching to the horizon. The wood-floored, canvas-walled safari tents are safe and secure, but you can watch and listen to the wildlife as it passes right by your tent. You can also enjoy your meal or a drink under the stars. The location is the ideal Serengeti base as it is deep in wildlife territory but away from the other camps and lodges.

Day 3; Serengeti-Full Day

You’ll enjoy the safari experience of a lifetime on your guided game drive through Serengeti National Park. A guide will help you look for big cats, elephants, and more as you drive through so many classic safari landscapes. Overnight at Embalakai Camp.

Day 4; Ngorongoro

Transfer by Road, Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater. This morning you’ll join us on a guided game drive through Ngorongoro Crater. Apart from looking for amazing wildlife (lions, black rhinos, spotted hyenas and more), your guide will show you the many beautiful corners of the crater floor. Transfer by Road, Ngorongoro Crater to Farm of Dreams Lodge for overnight.

Day 5; Masai Visit-Arusha

You’ll enjoy our excursion to visit the Maasai this morning in Karatu. Late afternoon Transfer by Road, Karatu to Arusha
