    Day 1 - Arrive Arusha

    Touch down in Africa at Kilimajaro Airport where a trasnfer will take you to our start hotel in Arusha.Your Trip Manager will meet you around midday ready to start your African safari adventure. The first stop will at the Shanga community project giving work to the disabled people of the community. We will then head off to our first national park in Tanzania - Tarangire; home to two of Africa's giants: the elephant and baobab trees. The lodge will provide us with a buffet dinner tonight.


    Day 2 - Tarangire

    An early start this morning will take us back into the Tarangire National Park for a full day, in the hopes for a glimpse of some of its elusive predators and changing landscapes. We'll either stay the whole day here with a packed lunch provided, or head back to the lodge to enjoy a hot lunch and a swim in the pool. Save some room for our buffet dinner tonight.


    Day 3 - Tarangire to Serengeti

    After breakfast we'll set out in our safari vehicles to our next destination: the Serengeti.We take in views of the Rift valley and the rim of Ngorogoro Crater as we make our way to the main gate of the Serengeti, stopping off to visit Mto Wa Mbu Village and a local market. We'll drive through the endless plains of this vast reserve to reach our accommodation for the night. Tonights accommodation will be a safari-style lodge in the middle of the Serengeti. A buffet meal will be served for dinner, and you're free to sit outside and listen to the sounds of nocturnal animals waking up to forage or hunt, all while sitting under the bright canopy of stars in the African sky.


    Day 4 - Serengeti

    We'll spend a full day seeking out the game of Africa's plains, with predators in hot pursuit of their prey. If the wildebeest migration is around, then you are in for a wildlife treat: millions of wildebeest and zebra grazing for as far as the eye can see really is one of Africas' greatest spectacles to observe. If you want to make today even more unforgettable, you can opt in for a once-in-a-lifetime Balloon safari. A buffet dinner awaits us back at our luxury campsite.


    Day 5 - Serengeti to Ngorogoro Crater

    Enjoy some breakfast before we depart the Serengeti with a morning game drive on our way to our next destination, the Ngorogoro Crater.In the late morning we reach the Ngorogoro Crater, an ancient volcano, boasting one of the highest densities of predators stalking the abundant wildlife enclosed inside the volcano's centre. We'll stop here for a picnic lunch before we ascend the plateau. A true natural wonder, only found in Africa.


    Day 6 - Ngorogoro Crater to Arusha

    Our final breakfast will be provided at the hotel before we set off. It's your last chance to do some souvenir shopping this morning, before we enjoy a final spectacular view of the Great Rift Valley on our way back to Arusha.With full hearts and memories made, it's time to say fond farewells to your new lifelong friends, and to our African adventure.
