Lioness in Tarangire National Park

Visit the Serengeti

Trips/Tanzania Safari

5 days

This trip takes you on an adventure to the main safari attractions northern Tanzania has to offer. We visit the famous Serengeti, the incomparable Ngorongoro Crater, and the beautiful Tarangire National Park. The game-spotting is excellent, and includes the Big Five. This is Africa at its finest!

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Tarangire

We start by exploring Tarangire, a gem of a park on the Northern Circuit, especially if you love elephants! The atmosphere and habitats here are completely different from those of other parks in the region. It's also a lesser-known park, which means you enjoy a quieter safari, with fewer vehicles around.

Day 2: Serengeti

After breakfast, it's off to the famous Serengeti National Park, home of the Great Migration. The drive there is a spectacle in itself, with a stop at Ngorongoro Crater so you stand on the rim and eyeball the amazing and expansive view! Then, onwards you go, until you crest a hill and the vast Serengeti sprawls away invitingly in front of you and into the far distance.

Day 3: The Great Wildlife Migration

Witness enormous herds of wildebeests, zebras and antelopes as they stretch across the plains of the Serengeti in search of pasture. And watch lions and other predators track their movements, waiting to pounce. Come at the right time of year and you could also witness a frenzied river crossing, where the herds surge across croc-infested waters!

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater

Today is exciting, as we go on a game drive in Ngorongoro Crater! Look for leopards as we snake our way down the tree-lined crater wall. And then at the bottom, as we travel through grassland and woodland, look for the crater's many lions and for its bull elephants, who have unusually long tusks. There's also the option later in the day to visit a Maasai village.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Wake up in the beautiful surroundings of Ngorongoro Crater, a truly spectacular natural phenomenon. The crater is a virtual Noah's Ark, inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare black rhino. Spend a day exploring this breathtakingly beautiful setting and – fingers crossed – spotting all of the Big Five.
