Safari in the Northern circuit Tanzania national parks, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, and the Serengeti


Day 1

Arrive Kilimanjaro – To Arusha

Upon arrival this evening at the Kilimanjaro airport, you will be welcomed by your Gemma Tours local representative and accompanied to your hotel in Arusha. Arusha Spa & Resort Serena- 1night Bed and Breakfast.

Day 2

To Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, travel to Tarangire National Park, where you will be met by your private guide and escorted to your accommodations. Tarangire boasts the greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania outside the Serengeti ecosystem. This afternoon, begin exploring the park, which is famous for its huge herds of elephant. Watch ancient matriarchs, feisty young bulls, and tiny, stumbling calves as they amble through the rolling plains. Maramboi Tented Camp/Tarangire Safari lodge/Sopa Lodges – 2 nights Full Board

Day 3

Tarangire National Park

Enjoy a day of game viewing in the park. On guided drives, spot a great variety of big game, including lion, elephant, black rhino and buffalo, as well as a large and varied population of the lesser game. Wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, and gazelle congregate around each water hole, which also attracts rarer species such as eland and oryx. The swamps of the park are home to more than 500 varieties of birds, the largest number of breeding species in a single habitat anywhere in the world.

Day 4

To Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, depart by road for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Upon arrival, check in to your safari lodge, which sits directly on the rim of the massive crater. Enjoy the rest of the afternoon to explore the grounds of your lodge and take in the exceptional views. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge/Ngorongoro Serena/Ngorongoro Explorians-2 nights

Day 5

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater spans 100 square miles and contains one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. The “Big Five” (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and elephant) can be found, along with most other species that call East Africa home. Away from the crater itself lie several superb spots for hiking and trekking, or simply relaxing and taking in the views.

Day 6

Serengeti National Park

Travel by road to Serengeti National Park. With no fences or manmade barriers, the park plays host to one of the last great wildlife migrations on Earth. During your time here, attune yourself to the natural rhythms of the plain, which have remained the same for millennia. Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge/Serengeti Sopa/Asilia/Four Seasons hotel/Mbuzi Mawe Tented camp – 3 nights

Day 7 & 8

Serengeti National Park

Embark on half- or full-day game drives. Watch the majestic lion stalk its prey, the sleek cheetah fly across the plains and families of giraffe munching contentedly on acacia leaves. Back at your lodge, relax over a sundowner, sketch the wildlife you’ve encountered in a safari journal and chat about your adventures with fellow guests before enjoying a final dinner in the bush.
