5 Day Experience Tanzania Wildlife

Written By Annette

Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire

Pick up from your hotel in Arusha and drive with picnic lunch to Tarangire National Park for a full day game viewing, which of all Tanzania parks boasts the largest number of Savannah elephants. Named for the river that nourishes the wildlife of a vast ecosystem, Tarangire is also home to zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, buffalo, eland, water buck, lion, giraffe, onyx and an unsurpassed diversity of birds. On drier ground, you may find the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird, ostrich, the world’s largest bird, and small parties of ground hornbills blustering like turkeys. Other birds include the yellow-collared lovebird, from June to November, masses of wildlife congregate around the river, but the park is a stronghold for big game year-round. After game drive, retire to your beautifully designed tented lodge, hidden among ancient baobab trees and giant rock kopjes within the park. Dinner and overnight at Karatu Angani Tented camp.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

Early in the morning, you drive to Serengeti via Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Picnic lunch will be served on the way. We arrive in Serengeti in time for an exciting game viewing drive in one of the best game parks in Tanzania. Covering an area of 14,763 square kilometers, the world famous Serengeti National Park is Tanzania’s oldest park and one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. It stretches as far as Lake Victoria to the West. Its name comes from the Masai word Siringet, meaning ‘endless plains’. Dinner and overnight at Serengeti Angani Tented Camp. Full Board

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

If you rise early, you can take a morning game drive through the park to see the nocturnal predators returning from their nightly hunt and very active animals waking up in the early morning light. Depending on the time of year and the migration of the herds, you can expect to see wildebeest, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, baboons, hippos, rhinos, antelopes, birds, and other species.
we enjoy morning and afternoon game viewing drives on the vast Serengeti plains. In the early morning and evening light, the Serengeti landscape is stunningly beautiful. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than three million large mammals. The park is one that can never disappoint. One is spoilt by the variety of bird and wildlife species in this game reserve. Depending with wildlife movement, we can have hot lunch at the camp or enjoy picnic lunch.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, we break the camp and drive south towards Ngorongoro. The drive is scenic and on arrival, we descend some 610 meters into the crater, which is home to an abundance of wildlife and a photogenic paradise, for a full day of game viewing drive with picnic lunch at a private scenic site (hippos pool). Ngorongoro Crater, the largest intact caldera in the world teams with an abundance of wildlife permanently resident on the crater floor. Prides of lions, herds of Cape buffalo, impala, Thompson gazelles, rhino, golden and black backed jackal, zebra, cheetah, leopard and the spotted hyena freely roam on the crater floor plains. Unmatched for its natural variety and breath taking beauty, there are few places on earth where such a tremendous diversity of landscapes exist inside a region this size. Apart from its wildlife riches, the crater is also home to hundreds of bird species, refreshing in the small lakes in the crater floor. Spend the night few minutes’ drive from Ngorongoro. Dinner and overnight at Rhino Lodge. Full Board
