Enjoy the phenomenal world natural event of wildebeest migration in Serengeti endless plains. Each year millions of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras thunder across the Serengeti plains in search of green grass and fresh water. From the famous Serengeti, which is the world’s greatest lion sanctuary, to the beautiful Ngorongoro Crater, which is home to almost 30,000 animals (including the Big Five).
In the morning at 0830hrs pick up from your hotel in Arusha and drive on tarmac road 120km to Tarangire National Park for game drives.

You can see giraffes, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, zebras, flamingos and if you are lucky you spot a tree-climbing lion. Return to Panorama Public Camp for dinner and overnight.
Depart this morning for a game drive in the central part of the Serengeti. On this trip-of-a-lifetime, we now have two whole days to marvel at the natural wonders of the world’s greatest national park. Each day is different here, full of surprises, but we focus of course on the Great Migration, that unique natural wonder which involves a cast of breathtaking numbers, literally hundreds of thousands of animals making their annual journey across the plains as they search for food. Zebra and wildebeest are the most numerous of the migrating animals grazing on the short-grass plains. But your driver-guide will also be on the lookout for other wildlife too, using his expertise and ‘eagle-eyes’ to try to find elephant, lions, buffalo, leopard and cheetah just some of the many, many species you will surely encounter in this unforgettable location. Dinner and overnight will be at Seronera public campsite.
After breakfast you will do game drive towards central Serengeti, then continue to Ngorongoro conservation area.
The Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a unique natural phenomenon. Your game drive takes you across the crater and you have great opportunities to enjoy the abundant wildlife, including large numbers of warthog and ostrich as well as hyena, lion and an elusive black rhino population. Dinner and overnight at Simba public campsite on the rim of the crater.
After breakfast, you set off towards the Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive with picnic lunch. It shelters close to 30.000 animals including the Big Five. The crater teems with zebras, buffaloes, lions, wildebeest, warthogs, baboons, elephants, flamingos, ostriches, hippos, cheetahs and a small population of the rare black rhino. The beautiful colours and dancing clouds make the crater almost surreal. Because of its natural beauty the Ngorongoro Crater is chosen as one of Africa’s Seven Natural
Wonders. In the late afternoon you drive back to Arusha.

Located at an altitude of 5,000 to 7,600 feet, northern Tanzania’s dry sunny climate is nothing like the steamy African jungle of Tarzan movies. The weather is spring-like year round, with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s, evenings in the 60s. From June until August, temperatures are slightly cooler, ranging from the 50s to the mid-70s. The coastal and lowland areas tend to be more tropical in temperature..
