Pre  Accommodation

If you arrive after midday we suggest a pre-night accommodation in Arusha, which we can arrange for you. Often we use hotels such as The Outpost or Kibo Palace Hotel. This is to ensure your safari is not off to a rush start.

Day 1: Pick Up & Cultural Drive

Pick up from Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) or your selected pickup point or pre-accommodation. Enjoy a cultural drive of approximately 3 hours to your first destination, either Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Park, before spending the night in Karatu.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

An early morning start from your Karatu accommodation, after breakfast heading on the road to the famous Serengeti National Park. Watch the differing landscape on your journey to the South of Serengeti where you will explore the abundance of wildlife on an afternoon game drive to your camp where you will spend the night.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

Early morning is one of the best times to spot some of the Serengeti wildlife, as many of the predators are out looking for breakfast! Make sure you pack your camera you will not want to forget it today. After an action-packed day, you'll return to camp to enjoy the stunning sunset.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

We start our day with a very early game drive in Serengeti and return to camp for a late breakfast we then travel to the incredible Ngorongoro Crater rim via Oldupai Gorge and stay overnight on the Ngorongoro Crater rim.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Early morning descent into the crater with a view of the open grasslands is an experience you will never forget. Being one of Tanzania's best game drives you will get many chances to see the big 5, maybe even spot the elusive Black Rhino before an afternoon drive back to Arusha or the Airport.
