DAY 1 - Arusha to Lake Manyara

DAY 2 - Lake Manyara to the Serengeti

After breakfast, take a game-drive around Lake Manyara National Park, which is famous for its tree climbing lions. With picnic lunch, you’ll drive to the Serengeti National Park and enjoy an afternoon game drive before checking into Serengeti Sopa Lodge, where you’ll have dinner. Distance/drive time: 205 km / 4 hours

DAY 3 - On safari in the Serengeti

Enjoy a full day’s game drive around the vast Serengeti, which covers an astounding 14,763 square kilometres of endless rolling savannah plains. It’s Tanzania’s most well-known park where tens of thousands of hoofed animals roam in a constant search for the fresh grasslands upon which their survival depends. The million-plus wildebeest are the predominant herbivore and also the main prey of a wide range of large carnivores, which consist mainly of lions and hyenas. While the annual migration is the Serengeti’s most famous attraction, the park is also renowned for its lions, many of which have been fitted with radio-transmitter collars so that their movements may be tracked, as well as its wealth of cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, elands, impalas, klipsringers, hippos and warthogs. All meals are at the lodge.

DAY 4 - Serengeti to the Ngorongoro Crater

You’ll leave the Serengeti and drive to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area via Olduvai Gorge – the “cradle of mankind” and site of one of the most important and controversial Palaeolithic finds in recent history. You’ll continue into the crater for an afternoon tour and picnic lunch. Often referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world”, the Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s best-known wildlife arenas. A World Heritage Site, it is also one of the largest volcanic craters in the world (almost 20km wide, 610-760m deep and covering a total area of 264 square kilometres). The Crater, a unique biosphere, harbours grasslands, swamps, forests, saltpans, a fresh-water lake and a glorious variety of birdlife, all enclosed within its towering walls. In the late afternoon, you’ll ascend to the rim of the crater and drive to your lodge for check-in at the Ngorongoro Farm House. Dinner will be served at the farmhouse. Distance/drive time: 150 km / 3 hours

DAY 5 - Lunch in Arusha

After breakfast, you’ll drive to Arusha where you’ll have lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, you will be taken to Kilimanjaro International Airport to continue your trip or return home. Distance/drive time: 190 km / 4 hours

The Migration: Twice a year, propelled by the rains, 1,3 million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles gather in Serengeti to undertake an 800km trek to new grazing lands. The precise timing of the migration varies but generally they congregate and move out at the end of May, sometimes over a period of weeks, sometimes over a period of as little as three or four days. They head west on the first leg of a roughly triangular 800km circuit that takes about three to four months and ends in the Masai Mara National Reserve of Kenya. When the grazing here is exhausted, they return to the short grass plains of Tanzania.

    Reputed to be the easiest of the available routes, this is without doubt the most comfortable in terms of facilities and the most convenient in terms of access. Also known as the “Coca Cola Route” because of its practicality, the Marangu Route is by far the most popular one for many climbers.


    Once championed as the discerning wilderness route for climbers, Machame is gaining on Marangu in terms of popularity. It’s also the second-most accessible trailhead of the non-steep routes making it more attractive to visitors.


    Offering ultimate value-for-money, this tour showcases Kenya’s most famous park, the Masai Mara, before crossing into Tanzania’s mighty Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. The safari accommodation features a fine selection of small tented safari camps.
