This 5 day extension allows guests to add a traditional Africa safari element to a Mt Kilimanjaro climb, or gorilla tracking on Rwanda or Uganda tour. See the highlights of Northern Tanzania from the comfort of a 4x4 jeep, and stay in classic African Safari camps while your guide provides interpretation of the local flora and fauna.

Day 1

Tarangire National Park

The better part of today is spent on a Game drive in the Tarangire National Park. The park is known for its enormous herds of elephants, ancient baobab trees, and having the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. During the dry season (June-Sept), animals flock from hundreds of miles to drink from the Tarangire River. Arrive at the Tarangire Safari Lodge in time for dinner. (Best option between June and October)

OR

The better part of the day is spent on a Game drive in Lake Manyara National Park.  With any luck you will spot one of the famous tree-climbing lions while you traverse this unique habitat. Watch for the nearly 400 different species of birds and enjoy the dramatic landscape of the Rift Valley wall.

Day 2

Serengeti National Park

After breakfast take a game drive en route to Serengeti National Park, a world heritage site, stopping along the way to watch animals you may encounter. Renowned for its wealth of lions and leopards, the Serengeti is the quintessential safari destination. Derived from the Maasai word ‘sirinetu’ meaning ‘endless plains’, the Serengeti plays host to more than a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle during the annual migration.

Day 3

Serengeti National Park

Today head back out for a full day of game drives, examining one of the oldest ecosystems on earth. Little has changed in the Serengeti over the past million or so years, you will still find the renowned plains intermingled with wooded hills, massive termite mounds, rocky kopjes, and acacia tree lined rivers. Depending on the time of year you will be able to witness the Wildebeest Migration (Dec-July), or an abundance of predators (June-Oct).

Day 4

Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater

Take an early morning game drive and return to camp in time for breakfast. Proceed with another game drive until lunch and then head to the Ngorongoro Crater. You may also opt for a visit en-route to Oldupai Gorge. This site provides evidence of the earliest signs of mankind, showcasing hominid footprints preserved in volcanic rock that date back 3.6 million years.

Day 5

  • Breakfast, Lunch

Ngorongoro Crater and Departure

Today descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for a six hour tour. As the world’s largest caldera (nearly 100 square miles), Ngorongoro boasts over 20,000 large animals, including Tanzania’s remaining black rhino. Living along-side the abundance of wildlife you will find 40,000 Maasai pastoralists with their cattle, goats, and sheep. The conservation gives you a rare look into how people harmoniously lived with nature and wildlife in ancient times. You are dropped off at either Arusha, Moshi, or the airport for your onward journey.
