Description Safari/Tour Itinerary: 7 Days Endless Luxury Safari to Serengeti Plains
Day 1: Arusha – Lake Tarangire national Park
After breakfast our Safari Guide will welcome you with a Tanzanian smile from your lodgings for the drive to Lake Manyara National Park. Manyara, a relatively small but diverse park 120km west of Arusha, is so named for the shallow salt lake that occupies a good 70% of the parklands. Flooding and drying seasonally, this soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos with the park being host to about 500 other bird species. On our exploration of the park we see monkey, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant and, with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes, not only open grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After our full day in the park, we drive to our lodgings, where we will be afforded the opportunity to relax and enjoy a sumptuous meal with our comfortable quarters awaiting us.

Day 2: Manyara to Serengeti national Park
After breakfast we set out for the fertile highlands where wheat, coffee and corn are grown by the Iraqw people. Passing through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, we have the opportunity to see the breath-taking Ngorongoro Crater before traveling onwards to the Serengeti National Park which we will reach by midday. The Serengeti National Park, the largest park in Tanzania, is a land of diverse landscapes and habitats such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah, and mountains. Here the great wildebeest and zebra migration makes its circuitous journey along with a range of other animals and, depending on the season, we may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals on their search for food and water.
After our extensive game drive, we head for our carefully selected lodgings for rest, delectable dining, and a night below the endlessly starred sky upon the ‘Endless Plain’,
Day 3: Full day in Serengeti National Park
This entire day is set aside for further game drives upon the Serengeti. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebra and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. In November and December the animals move from the northern region dominated by woodlands and hills to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June the horde return to the north. Apart from the migrating herds we may have the chance to spot the predators such as leopard, cheetah, and lion, ever and always lurking close by. With our days adventure upon the plain drawing to a close we find our way to our lodge in anticipation of a delicious meal and a digest if perhaps by the fire with hyena slinking past drawn in by the scents of our repast. Our commodious rooms await to harbour our sleep and dreams of wild cats.
Day 4: Full Day in Serengeti National Park
This will be our final full day spent on the Serengeti, the ‘Endless Plain’ in Maa, the tongue of the Maasai, warrior tribe who have called this scape of land their home for millennia, truly one of the most spectacular places on Earth. We continue to enjoy the wide range of animals and birds. By now, you will be an expert!

The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves offering us an uninterrupted game viewing experience. Arriving at the edge of the crater we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day – glistening streams, open grassland and a myriad number of animals. We spend the night at our lodge directly on the crater’s edge with the orange glow of sunset surrounding us as we drift off to sleep.
Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater tour – Tarangire
Early risers are rewarded with breath-taking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge and, after our hearty breakfast, we drive down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO world heritage site, formed millions of years ago in the massive explosion of a volcano once taller than Kilimanjaro, is 610 meters deep and covers roughly around 304 square kilometers. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25 000 large mammals, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. In a matter of minutes we will see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, and some of the more than 500 bird species that here inhabit.

Is this trip for you?
This is an excellent trip for wildlife, scenery and a taste of life amongst the Masaai tribe. There are some long drives, and although the distances are not huge, some of the roads are quite poor and can be bumpy and/or muddy, after the rainy season. The lodges and semi-permanent camps are very comfortable and are situated in the best areas for wildlife viewing, with the additional benefit of proper beds, ensuite bathrooms and verandahs. On safari, we travel in Luxury 4WD Land Cruisers and each vehicle has a roof hatch, which greatly enhances game viewing and due to rotation of seats throughout the trip you will be guaranteed a window seat. There will be some long drives, however, this is the nature of being on safari in parks and conservation areas, and there will be ample opportunities for animal spotting and photography.
Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as not suitable for full wheelchair users, but it may be suitable for other persons of reduced mobility. Please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.
