8 DAYS: Tarangire, Lake Eyasi, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Natron, Oldoinyo Lengai, Lake Manyara Laxury Safari
Tanzania is a must-see destination for any African safari enthusiast, and the country boasts three amazing national parks to witness some of the continent's most stunning wildlife. The Serengeti is Tanzania's most popular park, famed for its Great Migration, when millions of wildebeest move through the region from June to October each year. Ngorongoro Crater is another incredible spot -- it nestles within Tanzania's Rift Valley and contains an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna living inside its walls. Lastly, Tarangire provides a unique experience, with a high concentration of elephants and baobab trees, creating a picturesque scene like nowhere else in Tanzania. For an unforgettable safari adventure, Tanzania should top your list!

Day 1: Tarangire National Park
Fly to Tanzania, and our representative will pick you up upon arrival. Head towards the Tarangire National Park for a game drive with a picnic lunch at the park. Tarangire is best known for its massive elephant population and baobab trees. It forms the centre of an annual migration that includes thousands of elephants, wildebeest and zebras. Dinner and overnight at the lodge/camp.
Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast, our driver will pick you up and depart to the Lake Manyara national park. This national park is one of Tanzania’s most interestingly located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake at the foot of the Great Rift Valley’s western escarpment. The park is home to Africa’s largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara’s unique tree-climbing lions, and large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake. Late afternoon transfer to the Lodge/camp for dinner and overnight.
Day 3: Lake Eyasi
On this day, we interact with the Bushmen, the Hadzabe Tribe, who live in groups hunting with bows and arrows and gathering roots, tubers and wild fruits much as humankind lived in the Stone Age. We will get a first-hand view of their way of living. The Datoga tribe are blacksmiths, a trade developed over centuries and still practised the same way today. They produce arrowheads for the Hadzabe and brass trinkets. Late afternoon transfer to the lodge/camp.
Day 4: Lake Eyasi- Ngorongoro crater
Drive to Ngorongoro Conservation Area after breakfast. This National Park supports vast wildlife, including herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. This park is characterized by its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard. Our next stop is at Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually be seen here. Dinner and overnight at the camp/ Lodge.
Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Crater
Early morning breakfast and depart to Serengeti National Park. We will stop at Olduvai Gorge, an archaeological site for early human evolution. It was here that the anthropologists Dr Louise and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of Nutcracker Man and Handy Man, both very significant links in the chain of human evolution. Have a game drive in Serengeti and overnight at the lodge/ Camp.
Day 6: Serengeti National Park
This day is fully dedicated to extensive game drives at the Serengeti National Park following the wildebeest migration. Dinner and overnight at the lodge/Camp.
Day 7: Serengeti National Park – Lake Natron
After an early breakfast, have a morning game drive, then do a game en route towards north Serengeti. Check out of the park at Klein’s gate, then transfer to Lake Natron for an early dinner and overnight at the lodge/camp. Go for an evening lake Natron walk for sunset if time permits. Dinner and overnight at the lodge/camp.
Day 8: Lake Natron – Moshi
Conduct a night ascent & dawn summit bid at Oldoinyo Lengai (seismic conditions permitting). Depending on your scheduled flight timings, have an optional waterfall hike and swim. Later, transfer to Moshi for airport drop-off for your return flight.
