{DAY BY DAY SAFARI ITINERERAY}
DAY 1: ARRIVE DAY IN TANZANIA:
Arrive anytime at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Overland Safaris will arrange a private transfer from the Airport to Arusha at the African Tulip hotel, where the rest of the day is at leisure.
We stay at the African Tulip hotel, which is beautifully located on the slope of Mount Meru and is a perfect place to prepare for your adventure.
We will gather in the evening at the hotel for a pre-safari briefing and an equipment check.
Dinner and overnight at African Tulip Hotel: Bed, Dinner, and Breakfast included.
Kilimanjaro International Airport to Arusha: time is 1-hour drive (51.7 km).
DAY 2: TODAY WE PROCEED TO SERENGETI FOR THE GAME DRIVE IN THE PARK:
We head towards the Serengeti National Park. En route, there is an opportunity to visit Olduvai Gorge. It is within this steep-sided ravine that Louis and Mary Leakey made some of the world’s most important archaeological discoveries in the 1950s. Here is a small museum, we are able to see evidence of our ancestors that have been dated back 2.5 million years. After lunch, we drive into the Serengeti itself and the rest of the afternoon is spent game viewing in the vast plains that are broken only by stands of acacia trees and the occasional kopje. In December, January and February we will normally meet the migration with large herds of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle. There are always plenty of resident animals, such as giraffes, buffalo, and elephants, and many large predators such as lions, cheetahs, and leopards. We return to our special tented camp for the night.
Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Camp: Full board.
Arusha to Serengeti National Park: time is 4 hours drive (235.5 km).
DAY 3: SERENGETI BALLOON SAFARI AND GAME DRIVE IN THE PARK:
Serengeti Balloon Safari is probably the most beautiful balloon flight in the world and the ultimate Safari Experience which makes you enjoy the most beautiful migration of wildebeests through the endless plain of the Serengeti.
5:00 am, Serengeti Balloon Safaris will collect you from your central Serengeti lodge or camp, and transfer you by Land Rover to our launch site near Masai Kopjes. Here you will meet your pilot, receive a briefing, and watch the inflation of your balloon.
At dawn we take off, rising as the sun rises and float in whichever direction the winds of the morning take us.
Your pilot can precisely control the altitude of your balloon: sometimes flying at treetop height, sometimes lower, offering a unique perspective and great photographic opportunities of the wildlife below. After breakfast, you are taken to the rendezvous point to meet with your driver guide and continue with your full-day game drives.
Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Acacia Tented Camp: Full board.
Balloon safari and full day game drive in Serengeti National park: time is 11 hours drive.
DAY 4: EN-ROUTE GAME DRIVE FROM SERENGETI TO NGORONGORO CRATER:
We start the day with an early morning game drive before heading to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Ngorongoro is a special place in that it is a Conservation Area, not a National Park; this means that the whole area is managed for both the animals and the local Masai people who graze their cattle alongside the indigenous wildlife. During the drive-in Ngorongoro, we have a chance to glimpse something of the Maasai way of life. After stopping at the entrance gate, where there is a chance to learn more about this fascinating volcanic landscape, we will drive around the rim of the Crater itself, and from here we can look down and see the herd of wildebeest or buffalos. Finally, we descend into the crater. The crater walls provide a natural sanctuary for the animals, which means there is plenty to see: lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino, and leopards (if you are lucky). The only animal you won’t see in here is a giraffe, whose long legs are unable to cope with the steep sides of the crater. In the late afternoon, we travel back to our special tented camp.
Dinner and overnight at Karatu Tented Lodge: Full board.
Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater for game drive: time is 1 hour 49 min (66.3 km) drive.
DAY 5: GAME DRIVE IN LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK:
We depart from your tented lodge and proceed to Lake Manyara National Park. Although small in size, this park is one of the most diverse reserves in the country. Lake Manyara covers two-thirds of the park. In the backdrop is the wall of the Great Rift Valley, before which lies the groundwater, forest, areas of open grassland near the lake foreshore, and the Soda Lake. We enjoy a picnic lunch in this area, which consists of open grassy areas, hot springs, dense woodlands, and steep mountainsides. Lake Manyara National Park is a birding paradise that has more than 350 species of bird. The park is also famed for its unique and elusive tree.
After lunch, we drive straight to Kilimanjaro International Airport for the evening flight back home.
Lake Manyara to Kilimanjaro International Airport: time is 3 hours drive (184.6 km).
