The Rift Valley landscape drifts past as your guide heads for Tarangire National Park, the least visited reserve on the itinerary but one capable of delivering fantastic game viewing. Home to Tanzania’s biggest elephant population, Tarangire supports large numbers of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and many antelope species, most evident during the dry season when concentrations of animals at the life-giving Tarangire River are at their peak. You stop at a picnic site and enjoy your lunch with breath-taking views of the park’s landscape and the river below you, and maybe in the company of elephants drinking and digging water from the sand River banks, after lunch, proceed with game viewing and the late afternoon leave the park and, drive to your lodge Nsya for dinner and overnight.

Day 3:Ngorongoro Crater Tour to Serengeti National Park

After an early breakfast, we boot up and head out towards the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera. Almost 20 km wide, approximately 600 m deep and known for its large variety of wildlife, the caldera, formed at the explosion of a volcano some three million years ago, was once taller than Kilimanjaro. As a self-contained paradise, the caldera hosts an abundance of the finest animal life on the planet. In addition to the Big Five, the various springs attract animals such as wildebeest, gazelle, reedbuck, and more than 500 bird species. At approximately 2:00 pm, we'll head towards the Serengeti, arriving at our lodgings in a high-grade tented camp at roughly 6:00 pm. The Serengeti, ‘Endless Plain’ in Maa, the tongue of the Maasai is the largest park in Tanzania. It is also home to diverse landscapes and habitats such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannahs, mountains, and different creatures.

Day 4:Serengeti national park to Karatu

We will once more enjoy an early breakfast and set off on our game drive at about 6:30 am. We'll spend 6-7 hours exploring this incredible park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impala, buffalo, crocodile and hippo. However, it is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebras (two hundred and fifty thousand), wildebeest (one and a half million), and antelope (half a million). The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. Apart from the migrating herds, we may see predators, such as leopard, cheetah, and lion, plying their rough trade. At roughly 2:00 pm, we'll head back to Mto wa Mbu, arriving at the lodge for dinner.

The park is home to the famous tree-climbing lions, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, and big troops of baboons. More than 400 species of birds have been recorded here, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 50 of these in one day. Inland of the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favored haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions as well as giraffes. After lunch, we leave the park and head to Arusha. Your guide will drop you off at your hotel or at Kilimanjaro International Airport for your onward connection.
