Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

Arusha is the safari capital of the country and a bustling ‘tourism driven’ city. You will be met by your driver-guide in Arusha or at the airport and together you will begin the transfer to Tarangire National Park to start your private safari game drive. The name of the park originates from the Tarangire River, which crosses the park and is the main source of freshwater for the wildlife. This quiet park is famous for its elephant migration, birdlife, and authentic safari atmosphere. You will enjoy a packed lunch at midday and at the end of the afternoon’s game drive, you will make your way to Africa Safari Lake Manyara. On arrival, you will have time to refresh before finishing the day with dinner under the stars and a good night’s sleep in one of our comfy canvas accommodations.

Day 2: Maasai Boma visit for cultural experience

Time to take it easy – African style! One of the favorite Swahili expressions is pole pole (slow slowly) and that’s exactly how today will go! You may wish to sleep in or perhaps enjoy a second easy coffee while watching the animals graze nearby the restaurant. After breakfast, you will visit the traditional home of the Maasai, the Maasai Boma – which consists of a variety of small huts made of mud, sticks, and cow dung. The Boma is surrounded by a circular “fence” of thorny bushes to protect the tribe and their cattle from predators. During your visit, you can practice a traditional dance, engage in a conversation about daily life, traditions, and customs and admire the beautiful beadworks of the Maasai women. The remainder of the day can be spent in relaxation mode; take a refreshing swim in the pool, read a book and before you know it, it is time for a meal with fresh vegetables from our garden.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater Magic

Be sure to wake up early today, so there is no delay on your descent into the famous Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you arrive in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you will be amazed by the beauty around you. Even more so when you arrive at the edge of the crater and take in the amazing view over one of the natural wonders of this world.

The crater of this inactive volcano is approximately 3 million years old, 20 square km in size, and the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world. Due to its natural borders, the wildlife in the crater is amazing. The crater is home to the Big Five and offers a good chance to spot the rare black rhino. Throw hyena, zebra, buffalo, and elephants into the mix, and you have the perfect canvas for a pretty awesome safari experience. At the end of the afternoon, you head back to the lodge, Africa Safari Lake Manyara, for a well-deserved nights’ sleep.

Day 4: Lake Manyara Park to Arusha

After a good night sleep, today is the ‘day of the lions’. An early breakfast prior to checking out and after that you will be driven to Lake Manyara National Park itself. The park is approximately 330 square kilometers of which 200 square kilometers make up the lake itself when water levels are at a maximum. From a sea of pink flamingos as far as the eye can see to bull elephants at close range, Lake Manyara showcases a superb variety of herd animals and birdlife. One of the very special aspects of this park are the tree climbing lions. After exploring this park with its groundwater forest, mid-afternoon you commence the drive back to Arusha or airport, to where it all started; heart and camera full of memories from your African safari adventure

Concealed by the steep volcanic walls is a pristine wilderness including sweeping Savannah, pockets of acacia woodland, and glistening lakes and swamps. The Crater was created when a large volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself two to three million years ago.
The drive down the into the Crater is an adventure in itself and when you reach the Crater floor, you quickly find yourself amongst large numbers of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, and more than 500 bird species. The Crater provides you with the best chance of seeing the endangered black rhino, which can sometimes be spotted in the open grasslands.
After a full afternoon inside the Crater, you will head to your accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay in Kitela.
