Tanzania: Suggested Itinerary
Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Kilimanjaro...
Day 1: Arrive in Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Day 2: Make your way to Lake Manyara National Park for a game drive. From soaring groundwater forests and a tranquil lake, to the mountain escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Manyara National Park boasts an incredible wealth of habitats and diverse African wildlife. Travel to Ngorongoro Crater for an afternoon at leisure.
Day 3: This morning descend into the Crater for a tour and picnic lunch. Due to its high concentration of wildlife, close-range viewing opportunities and striking scenery it is also Tanzania’s most visited destination. Depending on your lodge, many do optional activities such as morning wildlife walks with a resident naturalist, adventure hikes around the Ngorongoro Crater and the volcanoes of the nearby Crater Highlands, visits to authentic Maasai villages & traditional cattle markets, women’s handicraft groups, nightly wildlife and cultural talks, as well as videos and film shows.
Day 4: Transfer to the Serengeti National Park with a visit to Olduvai Gorge en route. Many natural attractions that are contained within its vast boundaries, these include both dormant and active volcanoes, soaring mountains, archaeological treasures, rolling plains, rivers, forests, lakes and shifting sand dunes. Close to the centre of the NCA is Olduvai Gorge, the ‘Cradle of Mankind’, where the remains of our earliest ancestors, the hominids, were found. From Olduvai, enroute to your lodge enjoy a picnic lunch and afternoon game drive.
Day 5: Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti National Park. Take a hot-air-balloon safari over the plains followed by a champagne breakfast at the bush-landing site.
Day 6: After breakfast, a game-drive transfer to the Serengeti airstrip for your scheduled flight back to Kilimanjaro. Upon arrival at Kilimanjaro, connect to your onward flight.
