Wildlife Footprints Tour
Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara

Serengeti


Overview

On this safari adventure, you will spend five days trying to witness Africa’s “Big 5” – the lion, elephant, leopard, cape buffalo and rhino. The name Big 5 originally came from game huners referring to the hardest animals to hunt on foot. Nowadays, the Big 5 has become synonymous with the African Safari and is a thrilling experience to see some of Tanzania’s most dangerous animals in the wild.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Moshi/Arusha to Tarangire National Park

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Moshi/Arusha and driven to the first stop on your itinerary – Tarangire National Park. Known for its very large elephant population, you are likely to witness many herds during this game drive. As you drive around the seasonal swamps and savannahs surrounding the park’s famous Tarangire River (to which it owes its name) you will also come across many zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, hartebeests, giraffes and waterbucks. With a bit of luck, you may also encounter a rare (but not impossible!) sighting of lions stalking their prey or leopards lazily lying in the trees above. After your full afternoon game drive in Tarangire National Park, you will be driven to a nearby campsite, or lodge/permanent tented camp, where you will stay for the evening (depending on the accommodation plan you choose).

Meals included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 – Tarangire Area to Serengeti National Park 

After the breakfast, you will pass through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where you will be able to see the breath-taking Ngorongoro Crater before travelling onwards to the Serengeti National Park. At around midday you will arrive at the Serengeti. The Serengeti is the largest park in Tanzania with a diversity of landscapes and habitats, such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah and mountains. Here the biggest wildebeest and zebra migration takes place and depending on the season you may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals on their search for fresher grasslands. After your game drive, you will be driven to a nearby campsite, or lodge/permanent tented camp, where you will stay for the evening.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 – Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, you will enjoy an early game drive in the Serengeti and hopefully catch a glimpse of some predators such as lions, cheetahs or hyenas on their morning hunt. In the afternoon, you will enjoy one last glimpse of the Serengeti’s endless plains as you leave the park and head to the Ngorongoro Highlands. Here you will stay overnight in a campsite or lodge/tented camp near the crater rim.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 – Ngorongoro Crater to Lake Manyara

Early risers will be rewarded with breath-taking views of the sunrise over the Ngorongoro Crater. On your game drive inside the world’s largest volcanic caldera, you will find a haven of African wildlife, including the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. The various springs found on the crater floor attract animals such as wildebeest and gazelles, and more than 500 bird species. After lunch by the hippo pool, you will enjoy some more wildlife game viewing on your way out of the crater before driving to the outskirts of Ngorongoro or Lake Manyara where you will stay in a campsite or lodge/tented camp.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 – Lake Manyara to Moshi/Arusha

After breakfast, you will make your way to Lake Manyara National Park, a small but diverse park 120km from Arusha. The park is most famous for its alkaline lake, which covers a large area of the park. Time the season right and you’ll be rewarded by sights of thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species. On your exploration of the park you will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, elephants and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. In the afternoon, you will return to Arusha or Moshi, where your safari ends.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch
