Jewels of Tanzania
• Tarangire National Park • Ngorongoro Region • Serengeti National Park
Tick off the serious bucket list destinations of the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park. To add to the safari, stay in the Ngorongoro region at a former coffee plantation - which will enrich your holiday even more.
Day 1: Kilimanjaro > Tarangire National Park On arrival at Kilimanjaro, you will be transferred to Nimali Lodge in Tarangire National Park for the next two nights. One of the lesser-known game reserves in Tanzania, it offers a great diversity of wildlife. During the dry season, the Tarangire River is the only source of water in the area, which attracts abundant wildlife.
Day 2: Tarangire National Park Morning and afternoon safaris, as well as "sofa safaris" at the lodge where there is a waterhole right in front of camp.
Day 3: Tarangire National Park > Ngorongoro Region Drive to Karatu and visit Lake Manyara National Park's flamingo encrusted shores and hippo pool. Spend 3 nights at Gibbs Farm, an idyllic farmhouse set among picturesque grounds. Learn about the farm-life and enjoy wellness treatments and a full day safari into the Ngorongoro Crater itself.
Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater Today you will be taken on a full day safari excursion in the nearly 3-million year old intact caldera known as the Ngorongoro Crater. This Natural Wonder of the World is home to the highest density of big game wildlife in Africa grazing and living on the fertile land with the most stunning backdrop of the crater walls.
Day 5: Ngorongoro Region Today you have time to enjoy and savour the sanctuary of Gibbs Farm, or enjoy several optional excursions.
Day 6: Ngorongoro Region > Serengeti National Park Fly to the Serengeti, for a game drive en route to camp. Spend the next three days at the ultimate in luxury camping, Serengeti Under Canvas. A traditional tent style camp with a comfortable bed and fluffy duvet, big sofas, and a flushing w.c.
