Tarangire Safari Lodge, Tarangire National Park
You will be met in Arusha by your driver/guide. You will travel to Tarangire National Park, which is distinctive for its boabab trees and in the dry season, the highest concentration of elephants in Tanzania. Your lodge for two nights is Tarangire Safari Lodge, situated in the northern part of the park and is beautifully located on a ridge with views of the river, which in the dry season will attract a great deal of game. Most of the accommodation is tented with ensuites, although there are a few rondavels. There is a large swimming pool and a paddling pool for children. Go for a late afternoon game drive and return to the lodge for dinner. On the following day, enjoy a full day’s game drive with a picnic lunch or have a morning and evening game drive with lunch at the lodge. Enjoy sundowners on the verandah, before dinner.
Kirurumu Tented Lodge,Lake Manyara
After breakfast you will travel to Lake Manyara National Park for a day of game viewing. This park is only 325 km sq, bordered by the wall of the Great Rift Valley and the flamingo-rimmed lakeshore. It has more ecosystems that any other park in Tanzania, including ground-water forests, acacia tortilis woodland, the soda lake, hot springs and the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. The park is renowned for its elephants, tree-climbing lions and over 400 species of birds. At the end of your game drive you will drive up the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley until you reach Kirurumu Tented Camp, which is a small tented camp-site with comfortable tents in a bush setting. The camp is perched on the edge of the Great rift Valley with glorious views of Lake Manyara, the Rift floor and Mount Losimingori. Overnight at the lodge.
Ngorongoro Serena Lodge
Begin the day with an early morning walk to the edge of the Rift Valley, guided by a Masaai guide, who will explain the me medicinal purposes of the vegetation in the area. Depart after breakfast for your drive to the Ngorongoro Conservation area with picnic lunches. Descend ino the Crater floor – if it is the dry season, the floor will be dry and dusty, if the wet season, the lake may be full of flamingoes and the Crater floor covered in flowers. With the high density of animals in an area of 260 square kilometres, the game viewing opportunities are extraordinary with a good chance of seeing lion, elephant, buffalso, zebra, hipp and numerous antelope species. If you are very fortunate, you will see cheetah, leopard and black rhino. Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge.
You have the option to substitute this lodge for Kirurumu Ngorongoro Camp between 1 June and 31 October or 20 December and 31 March.
Serengeti Serena Lodge
This is a longer than average day of vehicle travel between destinations, and you will have a picnic lunch on the way. You will leave the Ngorongoro Conservation area via the Crater rim en route to the Serengeti National Park. A popular break along this rout is Olduvai Gorge, referred to as the Cradle of Mankind, where there is a small museum. After the gorge, you will enter the Serengeti Plains. The Masaai in their traditional vermillion colored blankets, tending their cattle, make a dramatic sight against the vast landscape. Once you are in the Serengeti the game viewing opportunities are exceptional. The Serengeti National Park is a world heritage site, covering a vast 14,800 sq km. This migration of two million herbivores takes place predominantly in the Serengeti, meaning, “the place where the land runs on forever.” Depending on the time of the year, the migration may be nearby or within reasonable distance. At the end of your drive the swimming pool at the lodge is a welcome sight. On the following day, enjoy as much or as little game viewing as you please. Spend two nights at Serengeti Serena Lodge.
You have the option to substitute this lodge for Kirurumu Tented Camp in the Serengeti between 1 June and 31 October or 20 December and 31 March.
