Tour Highlights

This 7-day safari combines a focus on the Great Wildebeest Migration in the magnificent Serengeti National Park with visits to some other true Northern Circuit highlights as you will begin at beautiful Tarangire National Park and end at gorgeous Ngorongoro Conservation Area with its jaw-dropping volcanic crater, filled with wildlife.

Day 1 Kilimanjaro International Airport To Moshi

A staff member of Jerry Tanzania Tours will pick you up from the Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). From here you will be driven to your hotel in Moshi and briefed on your forthcoming safari. Enjoy a restful night before beginning your adventure tomorrow!

Accommodation: Panama Garden Resort

Day 2 Moshi – Tarangire National Park – Karatu

In the morning after breakfast (around 6:00 a.m.) your driver-guide will arrive at the hotel and inform the receptionist that he is waiting for you. After meeting up with your driver you will travel to Tarangire National Park, and by 10:00 a.m. you will already be on your first safari! Tarangire is huge. As you stand at the park gate and look south, it stretches as far as the eye can see. Known as the ‘Elephant Playground,’ this spectacular park contains largest population of these mighty mammals. But Tarangire is also home to buffalo, lion, gnu, zebra and gazelle and the park can rival Serengeti for sheer animal densities. What might you see today? Perhaps a solitary male lion stretched out beneath a tree, perhaps a trio of male cheetah enjoying some lazy bonding-time in the sun. Maybe some graceful Grant’s gazelle or zebra bounding away from the road or a couple of giraffes munching happily from the choicest acacia branches. For Tarangire specialties, look out for kudu and oryx.

Here as in other parks, it pays not to ignore the small animals. It is so easy to be mesmerized by the power and majesty of an elephant or the elegance of the giraffe. Ask your guide to find you an agama lizard, especially a male one who changes colour in front of you according to the temperature! Or a hyrax, known as pimbi, an insignificant-looking creature of around 30 cm in length…who astonishingly is related to elephant!

Not many trees will pass you by without something of avian interest catching your eye. A memorable flash of colour might be a lilac-breasted roller or superb starling. Ostrich are plentiful and it is hard not to chuckle at the sighting of the well-named, studious-looking secretary bird as it awkwardly pads across the grasslands.

The park is also famous for its noble baobab trees, rolling savannah and acacia woodland. It can be dusty – wear a scarf over your mouth - but this is a minor inconvenience for sighting wildlife in such abundance. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch, you will leave the park to make your way to the cooler regions of the Ngorongoro highlands. You will overnight at the Tloma Lodge.

Accommodation: Tloma Lodge

Meal Plan: Breakfast will be provided by your Moshi hotel. Lunch will be a nutritious and balanced meal, provided by the Jerry Tanzania Tours for you to take out on safari. Your evening meal will be a full, cooked dinner created by the chef and his team at the Tloma Lodge.

Day 3 Karatu to Serengeti National Park, by way of Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast, you will set off for your next destination, the stunning Serengeti National Park, a distance of 166 km and a journey time of around 3 ½ hours. By late morning, you will reach Serengeti, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the country’s oldest and most celebrated national park and take a game drive. There are surely not many better places on earth to see such quantities and variety of wildlife. You will absorb the breath-taking scenery, fantastic changing light and – of course – spot the many animals choosing to make their home here. Your dedicated driver-guide will be delighted to share with you his knowledge of this incredible place and its flora and fauna. With thousands of predators – and their prey numbering in the hundreds of thousands – it is no surprise that there is always something fascinating happening amongst the wildlife populations. Your driver-guide may find you lion, leopard, elephant, zebra, cheetah and antelope on today’s safari… just some of the many species here. Snap off some memorable photos, but don’t forget to simply take a deep breath and enjoy nature in its real-time, raw beauty. After the game drive, you will be taken to your accommodation for some welcome rest, your evening meal and to spend the night.

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

Meal Plan: Breakfast is served at your Karatu accommodation, which will also prepare your lunch to be enjoyed by you out on safari. Your dinner will be a full, cooked meal created by the chef and his team at the Kati Kati Tented Camp.

Day 4 Central Serengeti to Northern Serengeti

After breakfast, your journey from Central Serengeti to Northern Serengeti will take around 5 hours, with plenty of changing landscapes and wildlife highlights to see along the route. The Northern Serengeti is a land of open woodland, extending from the Seronera in the south to the Mara river in the north, marking the frontier with neighboring Kenya. During your time here, you can get to grips with a whole new set of exotic names: Bolongonja, Kogatende, Lamai and of course, the legendary Mara river. You are now following in the footsteps of the Great Migration, great herds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra getting ready to cross the Mara into Kenya, and back again. It forms an integral part of the annual ritual. On a daily basis, crossings cannot be guaranteed, but your driver-guide knows the most likely places to witness them, one of Nature’s most awe-inspiring sights. Patience is required! And if you’re not lucky enough to witness a crossing, there’s always tomorrow; and in Northern Serengeti, plenty more to see today. At the end of your game-drive, you will be taken to your chosen accommodation for some well-earned relaxation and your evening meal.

Accommodation: Mara Under Canvas

Meal Plan: Breakfast is enjoyed at the Kati Kati Tented Camp. Lunch will be a nutritious and balanced meal, also provided by the camp for you to take out on safari. Your dinner will be a full, cooked meal provided by the Mara Under Canvas.

Day 5 Northern Serengeti

After breakfast, you will embark with your driver-guide on a full-day game drive around parts of Northern Serengeti. If you didn’t see any river crossing yesterday, then today offers another possibility. Your driver-guide has intimate knowledge of where and when they might occur. Populations of elephant and giraffe, dik-dik, buffalo and lions are all resident here, but the Migration time sets a different scene entirely. Huge crocodiles lurk in anticipation of the river crossing, looking to pick off a wildebeest or two as their herds plunge into the waters for the other side. Safety in numbers? Not always, so perhaps you will see not only a crossing, but a kill as well. Patience will bring its rewards – for crocodiles and for you, the visitor, poised with your camera! After a full and exciting day of wildlife-spotting in the Northern Serengeti, you will return you to your accommodation for dinner and your second night's stay.

Accommodation : Mara Under Canvas

Meal Plan: Your breakfast will be served at your Northern Serengeti accommodation. Lunch will also be provided by your accommodation, to be enjoyed while out on safari, and dinner will be a full cooked meal - again, provided by your Northern Serengeti accommodation.

Day 6 Northern Serengeti to Central Serengeti

While you’ve been asleep or having breakfast, you can be sure that your driver-guide has been checking to see what’s happening in the wonderful world of wildlife. Rest assured, he will find you a highlight! Before leaving the Northern Serengeti, you take the opportunity this morning to enjoy another game drive in this incredible location. This allows you further time to wonder at the migratory herds and the dangers and challenges they face each year in their battle for survival. During the early afternoon, you will set off back to your next destination, the Central Serengeti, a journey of around 155 km with an expected time of around 5 hours. There will be plenty to see on the way, and on reaching you will head towards the Kati Kati Tented Camp, where you stayed on day three. The camp team will be waiting to welcome you back.

Accommodation: Kati Kati Tented Camp

Meal Plan: Breakfast is served at your Northern Serengeti accommodation, which will also prepare your lunch to be enjoyed by you out on safari. Your dinner will be a full, cooked meal created by the team at the Kati Kati Tented Camp.

Day 7 From Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Following breakfast, you will have a morning game drive in amazing Serengeti, marveling at its animal inhabitants. With its informative visitor centre, the Seronera area of Central Serengeti is the national park’s most popular area. And it is very popular with the wildlife, too. The Seronera river enjoys year-round waterflow, so there is always something of interest to observe. Several game drives can be undertaken here and might reveal lions in sizeable prides, hippo or herds of elephants - whose populations in the park have risen in recent times. Depending on other attractions, you may choose to call in at the Serengeti Visitor Centre, where there is an excellent explanation of the park’s eco-system and a chance to understand the history of conservation in this area. In particular, you will find out about the work of Bernhard Grzimek and the Frankfurt Zoological Society who had the foresighted vision of preserving the Serengeti’s eco-system. Even at the center, you may well find wildlife: populations of hyrax and mongoose, as well as many small bird species. After lunch, you will head south-east towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area. If it has not already struck you with its vastness, Serengeti’s ‘endless plains’ will make a deep impression on you as you will take the long, straight road which passes Simba Kopjes (famous from ‘The Lion King’) to reach Naabi Hill Gate, close to the divide between Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Here you can gather information at the gate’s visitor center, clamber up the hill for superb views back over the plains, or look out for a colorful agama lizard among the rocks.

Accommodation: Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp

Meal Plan: Breakfast will be enjoyed at the Kati Kati Tented Camp. Lunch will be a nutritious and balanced meal, enjoyed at Serengeti. Your evening meal will be a full, cooked dinner created by the chef and his team at the Ang’ata Ngorongoro Camp.

Day 8 Ngorongoro Crater – Moshi

From your accommodation, you will set off after breakfast, a 6am departure to reach the rim and then descend into the vast crater itself. At one side there’s the Lerai Forest, classic mountain forest landscape with almost tropical characteristics. This is good elephant country, so keep your eyes peeled. By the side of the nearby swampland is what is sometimes called the ‘elephant graveyard’ as the mighty male tuskers at the end of their lives come to chew on the soft, swampland grasses once their teeth have failed them.

The crater has a population of around 120 lions, with well-defined territories; 15,000 gnu, 9,000 zebra, 400 hyenas, and around 50 black rhino. Many gnu and other herd animals are resident, benefiting from the many sources of year-round waters and are boosted by some migrators in season. Buffalo, Serval, Jackal, Thomson’s gazelle and eland are also present in numbers. Hippos can be found in pools and swampland and highland birdlife is colourful and plentiful around the waters. Flamingos can often be seen in Lake Magadi, which occupies part of the crater floor. After your morning game drive in this stunning crater and then lunch, you will have a 5-hour journey, covering the 272 km back to Moshi.

Meal Plan: Breakfast is served at your accommodation at Ngorongoro. Lunch will be prepared by the Ngorongoro accommodation, and enjoyed after your morning game-drive, before you drive back to Moshi. As today is the end of safari, please note that dinner tonight is not included in the tour.

Tipping is of course discretionary, but is an expected part of the way in which business is done in Tanzania. It counts as an expression of gratitude to those who – hopefully – have made your experience an unforgettable one and enables you to directly reward those people. Our visitors come from all around the world, with different cultural attitudes to tipping, but a tip is of great significance here in Tanzania and will be hugely appreciated by the recipient. We know that the act of giving of a tip can be a bit awkward and we would suggest that the best way to remove this ‘awkwardness’ is for each couple to put their tip anonymously into an envelope and for the envelopes to be presented by the couple to the staff member. As a guideline, you should consider tipping at the following levels:

Driver guide: $30 per day, per couple.

For hotels/lodges/tented camps, please do not tip individual staff members, but instead use the ‘Tip Box’, which you should find at the reception of your accommodation. For guidance, you should consider tipping between $5-7 per day, per guest, at each accommodation.
