Tanzania Highlights Wildlife Safari
[ACTN1]: Tanzania Highlights Deluxe Safari (8 Days)
Tanzania has set aside nearly 1/4 of the land for its animals. These immense expanses of wilderness remain wild and nearly untouched. From the virtual Noah's ark that is Ngorongoro crater, to the "great migration" in the Serengeti, a safari to Northern Tanzania and staying at the leading Serena Hotels & Lodges is truly an amazing and a memorable experience.

This 8-day safari offers the highlights of Northern Tanzania from the Serengeti, home of the great annual migration, to the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world and a natural enclosure for the thousands of animals. You'll also visit Lake Manyara and look down on the incredible Great Rift Valley. Learn More >
Safari Itinerary: Tanzania Highlights Deluxe Safari (8 Days)

Day 01 : Arrive Arusha, Tanzania
Upon arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport and after clearing customs and immigration, you will be met and transferred to the Serena Mountain Village. An imaginative recreation of a traditional Arican Village set in the heart of a coffee estate at the foothills of Mount Meru, with great views of Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro. Just 10 minutes from Arusha and 20 minutes from Kilimanjaro International Airport, the lodge is the perfect basis for a Safari to the National Park and to Kilimanjaro. The Lodge has 38 romantic rondavels and 4 suites, set in beautiful gardens. Every room has a private bathroom with shower and the suites also have baths and a private verandah overlooking the Duluti Lake. The restaurant serves international cuisine. Guests may enjoy a relaxing walk around the lake. Dinner and Overnight at SERENA MOUNTAIN VILLAGE (LD)

Day 02 : Arusha / Tarangire National Park
Drive to Tarangire National Park, where you will enjoy afternoon game viewing. Tarangire National Park is probably one of the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and retains a real air of undiscovered Africa, particularly in the south of the park. Just a two hours drive away from Arusha, the park is a nice stop if time does not allow for a visit to Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Tarangire National Park is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park. It is the vast number of baobabs that first capture the eye as you enter Tarangire National Park. The gently rolling countryside is dotted with these majestic trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath them. TARANGIRE SOPA LODGE (BLD)

Day 03 : Tarangire National Park / Lake Manyara National Park
After a morning of game viewing and a picnic lunch in Tarangire National Park, continue to Lake Manyara National Park. This afternoon, choose from a cycling safari, a village walk, a forest hike or a short nature walk. In Lake Manyara National Park, the hauntingly beautiful soda lake sprawls on the Rift Valley floor, below the sheer red cliffs of the escarpment. Sometimes pink-tinged with the wings of migratory flamingos, Lake Manyara is home to pelicans and many other bird species. Elephant, hippo, monkey, leopard and bushbuck are found in the unique groundwater forest. Closer to the vast lake, flat-topped acacia trees and open grassland are host to plains species and the famous tree-climbing Manyara lions. LAKE MANYARA SERENA SAFARI LODGE (BLD)

Day 04 : Lake Manyara National Park
On your full-day game drive you’ll find an abundance of wildlife, including hippos, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, leopards, impalas, wildebeests, baboons and monkeys. Nestling at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the park is recognized for its incredible beauty. Wildlife at Lake Manyara is not restricted to birdlife only. Many game animals such as Buffalo, Elephant, Giraffe, Impala, hippo and a great variety of smaller animals also inhabit the park. Elephant, giraffe, buffalo and wildebeest can be found grazing in unexpected clearings or heading towards the water to drink or wash, and the rivers and riverbeds provide scenic vistas for possible animal spottings. Warthog seem to thrive here, growing notably fat and tuskered, and it is a natural playground for baboons and monkeys. Lake Manyara is also renown for its tree-climbing lions which spend most of the day spread out along the branches of acacia trees six to seven metres above the ground. However, these legendary tree-climbing lion of Lake Manyara inspire extensive theorising as to the wonders of evolution, though are notoriously rarely seen. LAKE MANYARA SERENA SAFARI LODGE (BLD)

Day 05 : Lake Manyara National Park / Ngorongoro Crater
Ascend through the highlands to the very rim of the Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro is a truly fascinating and unusual Conservation Area which includes the mystery of the Ngorongoro Crater at its centre, and then extends through the Crater Highlands, in which local tribes are permitted to maintain their traditional lifestyles in as natural environment as possible. This extraordinary volcanic landscape is rich and fertile, with stunning craters and lakes, and the high altitude creates a malaria-free micro climate. Situated on the crater’s rim, NGORONGORO SERENA SAFARI LODGE offers a magnificent view of the crater below. From there, descend into the crater for a full afternoon of game viewing. Vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, and their predators—the big cats—roam the crater floor. NGORONGORO SERENA SAFARI LODGE (BLD)

Day 06 :Ngorongoro Crater / Olduvai Gorge / Serengeti National Park
Visit an archeological site at Olduvai Gorge. Continue to Serengeti National Park, one of the finest game parks in all of Africa. The Serengeti National Park is home to an estimated 3 million plains game, the largest concentration of such wildlife in the world. Life on the Serengeti is a complex cycle defined by the rains. The short rains begin in November to mid-December, prompting the migration back to the south-western part of the Serengeti. From mid December to March, the short grass plains are alive with migrant herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles. When the long rains begin in April, the plains are at their most beautiful, vivid with wildflowers and teeming game. After settling in at the lodge, enjoy an afternoon game drive. SERENGETI SERENA SAFARI LODGE (BLD)

Day 07 : Serengeti National Park
The morning may be spent along the river searching for leopard, or exploring some of the rocky kopjes (hills) for lion or cheetah resting in the shade. Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, the Serengeti National Park is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. A balloon safari is available on request (extra cost). SERENGETI SERENA SAFARI LODGE (BLD)

Day 08 : Serengeti National Park / Depart Kilimanjaro
This morning’s pre-breakfast game drive is your final opportunity to bask in the unmatched grandeur of the African safari lands before flying to Arusha for lunch. A day room is provided at SERENA MOUNTAIN VILLAGE before you transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport for your evening departure flight. You may want to extend your stay with a few days of relaxation in Zanzibar, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or flying to the Selous Game Reserve. (BL)
