DAYS MANYARA / NGORONGORO / SERENGETI / TARANGIRE.
Leave Arusha arriving in time for lunch; proceed to Lake Manyara national
park for afternoon game drive. Stretching for 50km along the base of the
rusty gold 600-metre high Rift valley escarpments, Lake Manyara is a scenic
gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest
I had seen in Africa”. The compact game viewing circuit through
Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience.
Afternoon game drive to explore the park. Dinner and overnight at lodge.
Day 2. Ngorongoro.
Morning game drive in Lake Manyara, after breakfast depart for Ngorongoro,
one of the natural wonders of the world. The Crater is one of the world's
greatest natural spectacles; its magical setting and abundant wildlife
never fail to enthral visitors. It borders the Serengeti National Park
to the north and west. A few hours drive to the east takes you to the
town of Arusha, which nestles at the foot of Mount Meru, within view of
Mount Kilimanjaro. Arusha is known as the gateway to the Ngorongoro Conservation
Area and the Northern Parks. Dinner and overnight at a lodge.
Meals and overnight at lodge.
Day 3. Ngorongoro crater.
After breakfast you will be taken 2000ft down the crater by a 4wheel drive
vehicle for a full day crater tour, picnic lunch at crater. The Crater
is also referred to as “the eighth wonder of the world” and
stretching across some 8,300 sq km, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in
northern Tanzania boasts a blend of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology
that is unsurpassed in Africa. The volcanoes, grasslands, waterfalls and
mountain forests are home to an abundance of animals and to the Maasai
people. In the evening ascend to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Day 4. Serengeti.
After breakfast depart for Serengeti passing through Olduvai Gorge- the
site of Leakey’s family discovery of fossils of human and animal
ancestors dating back to almost two million years. The Serengeti ecosystem
is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation
and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself
made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some
patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills
themselves. Meals and overnight at lodge.
Day 5. Serengeti.
Full day in Serengeti plains with morning and afternoon game viewing and
drive. Search for wild game you might have missed the previous game drive.
It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a
million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern
hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November,
and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June.
So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile
infested river can hold them back. Meals and overnight at lodge.
Day 6. Tarangire.
After breakfast drive to Tarangire to arrive in time for lunch. Afternoon
game viewing and drives to explore this famous park. The fierce sun sucks
the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth into a dusty red, the
withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shriveled
to a shadow of its wet season self but it is choked with wildlife. Tarangire’s
pythons climb trees, as do its lions and leopards, lounging in the branches
where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail. Meals
and overnight at lodge.
Day 7. Tarangire/Arusha.
After breakfast go for a morning game viewing drive in Tarangire National
Park. Return to lodge for lunch before you depart for Arusha.
