You may enjoy the highlights of the Northern safari circuit on this budget safari. In the midst of some of the most diverse settings imaginable, you will see breathtaking wildlife. You will visit the well-known Serengeti National Park as part of this journey. The exodus of enormous numbers of zebra and wildebeest from the Serengeti, as well as other wildlife, is known as the Great Migration. These creatures travel in a pretty consistent annual schedule.
Our representative will pick you up at the airport and drive you to your lodgings in Arusha, where you will spend the night, unwind, and get ready for your upcoming adventures. Arusha Planet Lodge is a haven of peace and beauty.
After breakfast, your safari guide will pick you up at your lodging and transport you to Lake Manyara National Park. Located 120 kilometers to the west of Arusha, this park is relatively modest but diversified. A little salt lake bears the park’s name. Thousands of flamingos and more than 500 other bird species call it home; it occupies a sizable portion of the park, floods and dries with the seasons. While exploring the park, you may come across monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, buffalo, elephants, and, if you’re lucky, lions relaxing in the trees. The park is renowned for its varied topography. It also has woodlands populated with primates, baobab-dotted cliffs, and grassy plains.
After a lengthy game drive around the park, you will proceed to one of our opulent, midrange partner lodges for your on-site lodging. We have carefully chosen your accommodation based on quality. You can eat at a sizable restaurant, unwind by the pool, and take a nap in a sizable, pleasant room.
After breakfast, you’ll move on to the lush highlands where the Iraqi people cultivate corn, coffee, and wheat. You will be able to observe the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater as you pass through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area before continuing on to the Serengeti, which you will arrive at around noon.
Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is its biggest park. It has a variety of environments, including grassy plains, wetlands, lakes, savannah, and mountains. Thousands of animals may be seen in search of food and water during this region’s largest wildebeest and zebra migration, which depends on the time of year.
You will return to the lodge for supper and your overnight stay following a lengthy game drive.
Today will be entirely dedicated to wildlife viewing in Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti is home to a wide variety of animals, including impalas, buffalo, crocodiles, and hippos, but it is most known for its enormous herds of zebras and wildebeest that migrate across it. The journey of the animals varies from year to year and is influenced by the rainfall. The animals migrate in November and December from the northern region, which is characterized by hills and woodlands, to the southern region’s grassy plains. They move back to the north during the lengthier rainy season, which lasts from April to June. In addition to the herds that are migrating, you may also have the opportunity to witness the nearby predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards.
This will be your last day in the Serengeti, often known as the “endless plain” in Maa, the native language of the Maasai people. One of the most beautiful sites on Earth is undoubtedly this. Keep taking in the variety of animals and birds. You should be an authority by now! Our tour guide will make sure to take you to the best game watching areas.
This evening, enjoy a leisurely sundowner while sipping a cocktail and considering the grandeur of Africa.
You will leave for another Serengeti game drive after an early breakfast. Before starting your journey to the Ngorongoro Crater, you might be able to see one of the “Big Five” animals: lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, and leopard. You can watch game without interruption in the unfenced areas because the animals are allowed to walk freely there. When you reach the crater’s edge, you will catch your first view of the glittering streams, wide-open grasslands, and a limitless variety of creatures that will be waiting for you the next day. One of our mid-range partner lodges is where you will have dinner and stay the night.
You will drive down the thrilling track into the crater after a full breakfast. This UNESCO world heritage site is 610 meters deep and 260 square kilometers in size. It was developed millions of years ago. Of all the parks in Tanzania, the crater offers the best game viewing because of its substantial animal population of about 25,000. You will be able to witness wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, elephants, and some of the more than 500 species of local birds in a matter of minutes. If you’re lucky, you might be able to see an endangered black rhino through the grass.
After lunch, you will climb the crater’s steep walls to reach one of our carefully chosen midrange partner lodges in Karatu, where you will check in. You’ll have dinner in the sizable, elegant restaurant, unwind with a dip in the pool, and take advantage of your room’s ample space to fulfill your aspirations of seeing wild cats!
You will travel to Tarangire National Park, the last stop on this grand safari, after breakfast. Large elephant herds are one of Tarangire’s most famous features. You will view the Tarangire River, savannah, and seasonal marshes from the open roof of the vehicle as you look for various creatures, including as zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and giraffes. A lion chasing its prey or a leopard watching and lounging in the branches above can be visible to you.
You’ll take a long game drive around the park before returning to Arusha.
