You will be met and greeted in Arusha for a Safari Briefing and then depart for Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park covers an area of 2850 km² and is named after its river that runs through the heart of the park.
During the dry season, the river becomes the only existing water source and you can expect excellent game viewings with sightings of buffalo, eland, giraffe, kudu, wildebeest, zebra as well as predators like hyena, leopard, and lion. The park is also known for its large elephant population and its majestic baobab trees. Enjoy the day with a game drive inside the National Park. In the late afternoon, proceed to your lodge located at the park border and overlooking Lake Burunge.
Start early with a picnic-lunch to the entrance gate of Manyara National Park and explore Manyara National Park during a full day game drive. Manyara National Park is a small park with 330 km² and it is located between the Rift Valley Escarpment Wall and the soda lake Manyara.
During wet season the soda lake covers the majority of the park, but is nearly non-existent during the dry season. More than 400 bird species inhabit this park and the park is therefore a good spot for bird watching. You can also expect to see large families of blue monkeys and baboons, dik-dik, elephants, gazelles, giraffes, impalas, wildebeests, zebras and many more. In the afternoon, you will drive up the Rift Valley to your accommodation in Karatu.
Proceed with a picnic-lunch to the entrance gate of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and continue to the descent road of the Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most frequently visited safari destinations in the Northern Circuit. The Crater is actually a “caldera” that was formed during a volcanic eruption and is now home to an abundant wildlife variety. More than 25,000 animals call this crater their home and the crater is well known for its “Big Five” and its large lion population. Enjoy a game drive inside the Ngorongoro Crater.
After a relaxed morning, return with a picnic-lunch to Arusha where you will be dropped in Arusha Town or at Arusha Airport (ARK) / Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) for your onward journey.
Our Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara Safari departs from Nairobi visiting the worlds famous Masai Mara National Reserve, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli National park.
