Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: Arrive in Dar es Salaam

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport. Meet and transfer to Serena Lake

Duluti in Arusha (BB) for overnight.


Day 2:  Drive Arusha – Lake Manyara

We are picked by our driver-guide in Pongo Safaris’ 4×4 Safari Van and drive

to Lake Manyara for game viewing and overnight at Lake Manyara Serena

Safari lodge. Located below the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley, Lake

Manyara is one of the oldest and most popular sanctuaries in East Africa, and

well known for its tree-climbing lions. The alkaline soda of the lake is home to

an incredible array of birdlife with over 400 bird species found in savannah

and river habitats. Pink flamingo stoop and graze by thousands and thrive on

the lake’s saline waters, pecking on iridescent minerals of the lakeshores that

even reluctant bird-watchers find themselves marvelling. Elephants, buffalos,

leopards and varied primates are easily spotted.


Day 3:  Lake Manyara – Serengeti

We will drive to Serengeti, World award winning and Tanzania’s oldest and

most popular national park, with on route game drives towards Serengeti

Serena Safari Lodge where we will check in for three nights. SERENGETI is

World popular for wildebeest migration and draws visitors from around the

globe to witness the largest mass of millions of mammals’ movement on the

planet. The sound of thundering hooves and sights of red dusty clouds have

become legends of the plains. Large kopjes outcrop in short savannah

grassland make a rich ecosystem.


Day 4:  In Serengeti

Full day game drives in Serengeti National Park as we try to catch up with the

greatest mammal migration on earth. Game drives in the endless plains are

broken by shadows of umbrella acacia trees forming a quintessential image

of the wild untarnished Africa. We will take the late afternoon at leisure

swimming and relaxing with a sundowner preparing for an early exciting day

tomorrow’s Balloon Safaris gliding over the plentiful African wildlife which

adds a unique element into Serengeti game viewing


Day 5:  In Serengeti

Possibilities for Balloon Safari, the ultimate of a Serengeti Safari! Starts at

dawn, glide at 2000ft above the ground for the most thrilling game viewing;

ending with Captain’s Champagne Breakfast in the bush. Our driver meets us

and we proceed with game drives in the Serengeti plains, probably witness

the natural wonder of the Wildebeest calving season which commences from

late January to early March where 80% of the Serengeti’s Wildebeest give

birth to their young on the Southern parts of the Serengeti Plains.


Day 6:  Serengeti – Ngorongoro

We will check out and slowly head towards Ngorongoro with enroute game

viewing, stopping at Olduvai Gorge, a paleoanthropological site in the eastern

Serengeti Plain, within the boundaries of Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Deposits exposed in the sides of the gorge cover a time span from about 2.1

million to 15,000 years ago yielding the fossil remains of more than 60

hominids (members of the human lineage), providing the most continuous

known record of human evolution. Olduvai Gorge which is known as “Cradle

of Mankind” was designated part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

We will later proceed on to Ngorongoro, arrive and check in at Ngorongoro

Serena Safari Lodge for TWO nights.


Day 7:  In Ngorongoro

Today we descend into the Ngorongoro Crater; a natural amphitheatre for a

game drive. Late afternoon, we ascend to the crater rim and visit a Maasai

Boma in Ngorongoro for a cultural tour and souvenir shopping. With a

diameter of 19km and a drop of 610m into the crater floor, Ngorongoro is

simply breathtaking. This “8th Natural Wonder of the World” is, one of the

main reasons tourists visit Tanzania. While the rim is surrounded by lush

rainforest and thick vegetations the descend opens into flora and short grass

plains stretching across the wildlife filled basin-like crater floor, which is a

home to the Big Five. Beyond the rim, majestic Maasai herd their cattle over

highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have done for centuries.

The co-existence between mankind and wildlife is truly incredible.


Day 8:  In Ngorongoro – Arusha – KIA

We will drive back to Arusha for onward safari connections or Kilimanjaro

Airport for our outbound journey.
