5 Days Tanzania Safari and Tours
This is your chance to marvel at the Serengeti and the vast Ngorongoro Conservation Area, both of which are world-class destinations. Both are rich in wildlife and have beautiful landscapes, and they are the most well-known destinations on Tanzania’s Northern circuit, making them must-sees. The BIG 5 and wildebeest migration can be seen in the Central Serengeti from April to late May and late November to December. The tour includes a stay in our comfort or mid-range accommodations from check-in to departure.

After breakfast, we depart for Arusha’s western outskirts, passing through Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before arriving at the magnificent Serengeti. As we pass through the Ngorongoro conservation area, we may see some Maasai tribe men directing their cattle to pasture, or we may stop at the crater viewpoint to see the spectacular view of the crater from the top. Finally! We arrive at the incredible Serengeti on our afternoon game drive. The game drive here combines the known and the unknown, every turn leads to a new experience.

DAY 3: Full day at Serengeti National Park
Today we have a full day ahead of us for an intensive game drive at Africa’s top-ranked park. We have a good chance of seeing many animals, including preferred big cats in their pride, bird species, and numerous grazer animals. Several game drives can be taken here, which may reveal animal behaviours such as killing, mating, and so on. Sunrise and/or sunset can also be fantastic parts of our day at Serengeti.
“A Balloon ride is now available as an “extra cost”. Please let us know if you are interested so that we can make arrangements and pass the extra cost to you”

DAY 4: Serengeti – Ngorongoro Conservation
Driving distance: 145kms/3hrs 30minutes
Following a leisurely breakfast at the lodge, a final morning game viewing will be conducted to marvel at the natural beauty of the Serengeti. The concentration of wildlife in the Seronera region certainly paints a clear picture of why the Serengeti is a must-see destination when considering African travel. We eat our picnic lunch at the picnic area before continuing on with our game en route to our chosen lodging for leisure and overnight.
Accommodation: Ngorongoro Rhino Lodge on Full Board
DAY 5: Ngorongoro Crater – Kilimanjaro airport
Driving distance: 248km/5hrs
After an early breakfast at the lodge, depart for a game drive on the Ngorongoro crater floor. This long-extinct volcano is the world’s largest intact caldera and is regarded as one of the most spectacular wildlife destinations on the planet. Diverse habitats, including permanent wetlands, shelter within its steep-sided walls, supporting an astonishing number of animals. Ngorongoro has long been home to a thriving population of big game species, including great-tusked elephants, healthy black rhinos, and the famous black-maned lions. This is one of the few places in Africa where you can see the Big 5 on a single game drive, and there’s plenty more to see. Gazelle, wildebeest, and zebra herds live here, as do smaller predators such as caracal and serval cats, as well as lions and their eternal adversaries, spotted hyenas. After our enjoyable game, we ascend and drive to Arusha or Kilimanjaro airport for our departure flight.
