Journey Details

Day 1

Arrival


A representative will be waiting for you at Kilimanjaro Airport or Arusha Airstrip, depending on your flight details. You’ll swiftly be transferred to your accommodation in Arusha to prepare for your expedition starting the next day. Depending on your arrival time and your own preferences, there is an optional easy trek to the Materuni Waterfall, right in the middle of the green jungle in Mount Kilimanjaro, where you will also have the opportunity to learn about the coffee preparation process from the local people in the area.

Day 2

Safari in Tarangire


After breakfast, you’ll be transferred to Tarangire National Park for a full day game drive inside. Our expected arrival time and entry to the park is around 11 am. You’ll be provided boxed lunches during break time. Tarangire is perfect for those seeking a different variety of animals like the wild dog, kudu, oryx or gerenuk as well as a large variety of bird species and remarkable concentrations of big cats. This wonderful park hosts the biggest herds of elephants in the country! Later in the afternoon, we’ll head to Karatu town next to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where you will spend the night.

Day 3

Drive to Serengeti


After an early breakfast, we will drive to enter the Serengeti from its main gate located in the south of the park, where the wildebeests breed around Christmas time. You will enjoy the rest of the day on an explorative afternoon safari and a picnic lunch.

Siringet in Maasai language means “the endless plains”. Along this savannah of more than 30.000 km2 of infinite grass plains, probably the most famous migration in the world can be witnessed. Over a million wildebeest, about 800.000 zebras and many gazelles move together from south to north, and back again, throughout the year.

Day 4

Full day in the Serengeti


Early breakfast and a full day safari in the Serengeti National park with picnic lunch boxes. The Serengeti is known worldwide for its endless plains, wildebeest-migration, herds of lions and other predators like hyenas, cheetahs and leopards. Crocodiles can be found in the Grumeti River, as well as hippos, giraffes, antelopes, and gazelles.

An exciting and wonderful additional experience you can choose to include in the early morning of this day is a balloon safari. This includes transfers to launch site, sunrise take-off in a shared balloon, an unforgettable 1-hour flight above the Serengeti, a champagne toast on landing and a full-English breakfast under the trees.

Day 5

Ngorongoro


Early breakfast and safari en route to the descent into the Ngorongoro crater, as well as an afternoon safari inside the crater. There is a possibility of spotting the big 5 in one day: Lion, Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo and Leopard. At night, you will sleep in Karatu town next to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

This UNESCO Heritage Site is where plenty of animals found their home. Ngorongoro used to be a volcano that collapsed and created a 300 km2 crater that’s about 600 m deep. The breath-taking views win the adoration of every single human who visits, as all that awaits you inside is a natural wonder!

Day 6

Back to Arusha


Transfer back to Arusha after breakfast. The expected arrival time to Arusha is 11 am. For an additional fee, it is possible to add a safari in Lake Manyara National Park before you leave, depending on your departure flight timings.
