Day 2: Arusha – Lake Manyara – Karatu
Breakfast at the hotel. You will be met by our guide/driver and your adventure will begin on a 4WD that will take you to the most important parks of North Tanzania. Your first stop will be Manyara National Park.
Along the way you will cross the small town of Mto Wa Mbu, a colorful mix of ethnicities; the actual town hosts 50 tribes. The lake itself takes up much of the park, leaving a strip of land where various game concentrate. It is home to a diverse set of landscapes and wildlife. For example, there is the grassy floodplain, contrasting with the intimacy of the forest, where visitors can enjoy the expansive views eastward of the jagged blue volcanic peaks across the silvery reflection of the soda lake. Further out on the floodplain, a narrow belt of acacia woodland is the favoured haunt of Manyara’s legendary tree-climbing lions and impressively tusked elephants. These lions love to climb the trees and relax on the branches, an unusual behaviour for these animals that they carry out for hours here! After the safari you will stop for a picnic lunch and in the afternoon you will be continuing your journey to Karatu. This is one of the most famous spots in Tanzania, the area spans vast highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands, forests and tea and coffee plantations. Many of the lodges organise guided visits of the plantations. Arrival at the lodge late in the afternoon, dinner and overnight stay.

Lake Eyasi is a seasonal shallow soda lake on the floor of the Great Rift Valley and the base of the Serengeti Plateau. Though not really a game destination, Lake Eyasi, is a wild, scenically stunning area where you can get a real insight into the way of life of some of Tanzania’s fascinating tribes, most notably the Wahadzabe and Datoga peoples. In the afternoon meet the Datoga tribe, a pastoral group like the Maasai. Back at the camp in the late afternoon to enjoy a beautiful sunset on the lovely deck.
Kisima Ngeda Camp
Day 4: Lake Eyasi – Serengeti National Park
Breakfast at the camp and discover a typical Hadzabe Village: spend the morning with the Hadzabe men learning their ways of hunting and gathering (one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes in Africa) and learning about the women and children’s way of life. After your picnic lunch and a last activity departure to the Serengeti National Park. This road is different comparing to the Ngorongoro landscape, it’s arid and wild, dotted with suggestive Masaai Villages. Access the Serengeti from Naabi Hill Gate; not far from here you will stop close to a group of Kopjes, it is possible to climb on top of them and enjoy the incredible landscape on the Serengeti plains.
The Serengeti Kopjes are outcrops of granite that stick out like rocky islands in a sea of grass. They were formed when the soft volcanic rock and ash that covers Serengeti were eroded away to expose the extremely old metamorphic rock below. Aside from providing a scenic contrast to the surrounding grasslands, kopjes provide habitat for many creatures because of the presence of a variety of plants, caves for dwelling, water, and a vantage point for Serengeti’s many predators.
Arrival at the camp, accommodation and enjoy a bit of relax before dinner inside the tented restaurant.
Ang’ata Camp (comfort) or Dunia Camp (deluxe)

This area is populated by mammals (wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, antelopes, hippos, elephants and a small number of black rhinos) and predators like lions, easy to spot on dry season, leopards and cheetahs not as easy to see.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Tarangire National Park
Breakfast at the lodge, next destination Tarangire National Park, the most loved park by elephants.
The Tarangire National Park covers an area of 2.600 square kilometres and is crossed by the Tarangire River. The only source of water for wild animals during dry season, the Tarangire River creates a most unique landscape: hillsides dotted with a vast numbers of Baobab trees, dense bushes and high grasses. During the dry season thousands of animals such as elephants, kudu, lions, cheetahs and leopards migrate to the National Park to find water, making the dry season the best moment to visit the park.
