Safari 706: accommodation in mid-specification lodges and tented camps



Day 1
Visited park: Lake Manyara National Park
Dinner and overnight: Tloma mountain Lodge
Upon arrival at Arusha airport you will be met by your private guide and car and depart to Lake Manyara NP to enjoy a gentle game driving. This park is considered a bird watchers paradise with its over 380 different species. Unlikely other parks, it offers the spectacle of large flocks more than that of single sightings.

Day 2
Visited park: Serengeti central
Dinner and overnight: Serengeti Kati Kati
In central Serengeti the severe dryness forced animals to adapt to different lifestyles than in green season. ... Gazelles and antelopes had to gather along permanent rivers and water sources ... predators are compelled to compress their territory close to the same water sources ... Seronera is now hosting the largest population of cats in Africa ...

Day 3
Visited park: Serengeti central and surroundings
Dinner and overnight: Serengeti Kati Kati
A full day out in the bush ... at dawn to sight predators hunting or returning from their nightly hunting forays and to witness cubs playing ... nearby the river courses where predators wait their preys moving along very predictable routes ... driving through alternative and more remote locations in the afternoon in order to enjoy a truly excellent wilderness experience where almost no other cars will be met ... lunch at the camp or pic nic, since you are travelling with private car and vehicle you can entirely dictate the pace of your day.

A note on the wildebeest migration which at this time has normally reached the Serengeti mara and cannot be intercepted with a daily game drive from central Serengeti.
If you are interested in witnessing the wildebeest migration we would recommend you to spend at least 4 full days in Serengeti combining the visit of both the central and northern sectors of the park. No other part of the park will offer you the same high concentration of predators and cats as Seronera, in central Serengeti does while with a little luck, in the Serengeti Mara, you might be able to sight one or more of the famous crossings of the river packed full with Nile crocodiles. See for instance our safari 707 or 708

Day 4
Visited park: Ngorongoro crater
Dinner and overnight: Ngorongoro Farm House
Today you will explore the famous caldera, one of the most fascinating places of Africa. Thanks to the variety of habitats [long and short grasses savannahs, acacia forest, woodland, clearings, swamps, freshwater and soda lakes] it hosts all year round about 30.000 animals ...

Day 5
Visited park: Tarangire
Dinner and overnight: Tarangire Safari Lodge
August, September and October are great months for Tarangire since the entire cast of migratory animals should have definitely returned into the park concentrating along the river valley and swamps, including felines ... Matchless, at this time of the year, by any other park of the northern circuit is the huge number of elephants that one can encounter: herds counting up to 100 individuals are no exception and there is a valley where at a glance we have been able to estimate something like 1000 individuals ... unforgettable the majestic and enigmatic baobabs that dot the north of the park.

Day 6
Visited park: Tarangire
Dinner and overnight: Tarangire Safari Lodge
Another day exploring Tarangire ...

Day 7
One last morning of game drive before coming back to Arusha. Should your flight depart late then we can extend your game drive in Tarangire until late afternoon
