Day 1. Nairobi to Arusha

We are met at our hotel and transferred by a scheduled shuttle bus to Tanzania completing formalities at the Namanga border post. Our first night is at a town of Arusha, the halfway point from Cape Town to Cairo. On arrival we check into our hotel, relax or possibly explore the town.

Day 2. Arusha to Lake Manyara National Park Highlights. Lake Manyara National Park.

Travelling out of town across the Maasai plains our journey takes us to the attractive Lake Manyara National Park where we enjoy our first game drive. If we are lucky we may encounter the tree-climbing lions that Manyara is famed for and if the timing is right, the abundance of flamingo dotting the soda lakes edge.

After exploring the park, we head to our camp which is situated on the outskirts of the park itself.

Day 3. Lake Manyara to Serengeti National Park Highlights. Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania.

This morning our journey takes up the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley and into the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Traversing the rim of the crater with its sweeping views, we stop for a photo opportunity at the lookout point and the Olduvai Gorge - one of the most important fossil sites in the world.

We enter the Serengeti National Park this afternoon and game drive across the plains to our designated camp for the night set in the wilderness of this magnificent park.

Day 4. Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater Highlights. Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

Departing in the cool of the early morning we head out from camp on an early morning game drive to explore the numerous species of mammals, reptiles and prolific birdlife this park is famous for.

Depending on the seasons we may get to witness the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra as they seek new pastures - a sight not to miss!

After our rewarding game drive, we ascend the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater to our scenic camp for the night.

Day 5. Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Manyara Highlights. Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.

Waking up on the rim of the crater we are welcomed with stunning views before descending to the floor of the crater. Here we will spend the morning exploring this beautiful reserve, home to a fantastic array of animals including the 'Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant.

This afternoon we leave the crater and head towards our camp on the edge of Lake Manyara National Park.

Day 6. Lake Manyara to Tarangire and Arusha Highlights. Tarangire National Park.

We travel through Mto Wa Mbu and on to the gem that is Tarangire National Park with the iconic baobab trees. The park is less frequently visited but we are rewarded by some large herds of both elephant and buffalo.
