Tour Highlights

With all the diverse landscapes and a crater full of animals, this safari has something for everyone and is ideal for those with limited time.

Day 2: Moshi – Tarangire National Park – Karatu

In the morning at around 6:00 a.m. your safari guide will arrive at the hotel and inform the receptionist that he is waiting for you. After meeting up with your driver, you will start your approximate four-hour journey to Tarangire National Park. The park is famous for its diverse landscape with nine different vegetation zones. Tarangire is particularly known for the abundance of Ancient Baobab trees (the largest trees in the continent) which fill the landscape and dwarf the animals next to them. The river of the park is full of wildlife ranging from a large variety of birds to lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes and, of course, elephants. In fact, this park has the largest concentration of elephants in the whole country and provides unique chances to observe the interaction between elephant families. The lunch area is fascinating, boasting an observatory with amazing views to the river and wildlife (with good chances of seeing a hunt while having your picnic). After an extensive game drive, enjoyed from the open roof of the vehicle, you will leave the park and travel to a nearby lodge, where you will overnight.

You will drive up the crater highlands, making a quick stop at the rim for an out of this world view of Ngorongoro Crater. This will be an unforgettable moment for anyone seeing it for the first time.  As you progress well into the Serengeti, you will see why the name means, in local language, "endless plains". The park has 5,700 sq. mile (14,763 sq. km) and for most of it, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. It is the home of the Great Migration and to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras and all kinds of antelopes including the abundant impalas and Thomson's gazelles. As for Big Cats and large predators, it's the place of choice to look out for lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, with many television scenes like the famous river crossings having been filmed in this park. Smaller animals like foxes, mongoose, honey badgers, jackals, monkeys, baboons, rock hyrax and African hares, together with more than 500 species of birds, also inhabit this park.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

On this day we suggest a very early wake up in order to do an early morning game drive (when the animals are more active) and see one of the best sunrises you will ever witness. It is really one of the most beautiful experiences to have. After lunch at a picnic spot you will slowly drive in the direction of Ngorongoro, the 8th wonder of the Natural World. The Ngorongoro Crater spreads for 102 sq. miles and has 2,000 ft. high walls, making it virtually a Noah's ark and inhabiting almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. It is one of the very rare locations in the whole continent where you can witness the black Rhino. The concentration of African wildlife if the greatest in the continent. The Crater has a river, several swamps, and a soda lake with a great concentration of flamingos, a forest and open plains. It is also famous for its elephants which are the largest in the world and have huge tusks. This is due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses. You will spend the night at the Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge located within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Accommodation: Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater to Moshi

After an early breakfast you will start your descent on a narrow and steep road to the crater floor. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest, unbroken and unflooded caldera in the world and it has an unbelievable diversity of wildlife. In addition to zebras and wildebeests, you might also spot the rare black rhino and other members of the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. The crater is also home to other animals such as hyenas, waterbucks, bushbucks, eland and more than 500 bird  species. After extensive game viewing and a lunch at a picnic spot, you will leave the caldera and travel back to Moshi, where you will arrive in the early evening.
