After breakfast the tour departs heads-off to Tarangire National Park in 4×4 safari vehicle in the company of your tourAfrika guide, and en-route we make a stop-over is Arusha Town for any last-minute purchases. Arusha town, is the gateway to the popular safari circuit in northern Tanzania. Sitting snugly at the foothills of Mount Meru, the small town is surrounded by some of the most famous national parks in Africa. First settled in the 1830’s by the Maasai people, the town was conquered by the Germans in the early 1900’s, who built the fort (Boma) which still stands. The British took the town during WW1 and it remained in their hands until independence was granted to the then Tanganyika in 1961. In July 2006, Arusha was declared a city by Tanzania. This chequered past adds to the mixture of architecture and culture still found here. Afterwards we head towards the Tarangire National Park for a game drive with picnic lunch at the park. Tarangire is well known for its huge elephant population and baobab trees. It forms the centre of an annual migratory cycle that includes up to 3000 elephants, 25,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebras. After the game drive we head-off to overnight accommodation facility is set outside the park.

After breakfast you journey through a Rift Valley landscape and into the cooler climate of the crater highlands. You have lunch on the way and make time to stop and stare down into the giant Ngorongoro Crater from a viewing platform; you will return back to explore Ngorongoro properly later but first you have one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves before you: the Serengeti.
The Serengeti is an excellent year-round destination for wildlife but it is when the Wildebeest Migration arrives – from about November to June – that you may anticipate some of its most iconic imagery. Your accommodation for the next two nights depends on the time of year: your tented camp is a mobile one and is in sync the pattern of the Migration, almost securing you front-row seats to all the action. Your full day here is spent out on the Serengeti, taking advantage of your game-rich location and expert guide to enjoy startling game sightings that are likely to form entertaining conversations around the campfire later.
