Day By Day Details

Day 1. Arrive at kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha

Arrive in Arusha and Transfer at your Hotel. Arusha is Tanzania’s gateway to the northern circuit of stellar national parks and the starting point of many a memorable safari. It’s also a large, sprawling city with all the contradictions that brings. The town offers a nice break from the rigours of life on the African road – it has excellent places to stay and eat and, for the most part, it’s lush and green and enjoys a temperate climate throughout the year, thanks to its altitude (about 1300m) and its location near the foot of Mt Meru and Kilimanjaro. Take Dinner and Overnight.

Day 2. Drive from Arusha to Serengeti National Park

After Break fast, at 7.00 Am, Drive to Serengeti National Park for a game drive via Ngorongoro Crater rim. Tanzania’s oldest and most popular National Park. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 many gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game drive in Africa. As the day cools and the sky is streaked by red, gold and orange hues, you may be surprised by the roar of a lion, a galloping giraffe, or the high pitched giggling of hyenas fighting over a kill. Transfer To your camp for Dinner and Overnight.

Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Garden of Eden’ the ‘5th Natural Wonder of Africa’. This breathtaking oasis provides a haven for both predator and prey to live among grasslands.
