Everything the Light Touches: 7 Days/6 Nights

Early morning pickup, we begin our journey to Tarangire National Park for our game drive. Tarangire is well known for its abundance of elephants during the dry season & its massive baobab trees & termite mounds. All the main predators are present within the park, but not spotted as easy due to its thick vegetation. The park is home to over 545 species of birds, making it a haven for birders. We will enjoy a nice lunch & continue our game drive, exiting the park in the late afternoon after a full exciting day to safely return you to your lodge.

We will enjoy a picnic lunch and continue our game drive for the rest of the afternoon until it is time to exit the park & return you safely to your hotel.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater

Early morning start from your lodge, we will begin our descend into the Ngorongoro Crater; stopping at the upper rim to enjoy the spectacular view of the crater below. Just when you begin to think it cannot get any better, we will enter the Noah’s Ark of Africa. Ngorongoro Crater, also known as “Africa’s Eden”, inhabits almost every species of wildlife that is indigenous to East Africa. The abundance of wildlife truly is extraordinary & is one of the only places on the continent of Africa that you have an opportunity to witness the Black Rhino.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

Early morning start, we will begin our journey towards the most famous National Park in the World, the Serengeti. Although the drive is long, it is spectacular. You will drive up the crater highlands, making a quick stop at the rim for an out of this world view of Ngorongoro Crater. The journey continues into the home of the Great Migration, where you will witness wildlife on a whole new level. As you begin to enter the plains of the Serengeti, the plains will stretch to the horizon defying your senses and perception of distances. Home to 2 million wildebeests, hundreds of thousands of zebras, antelope & elephants. Due to its rich environment, it is prime real estate for lions, cheetahs, leopards & hyenas. After a full, adventurous day, we will turn into our camp/lodge for dinner.

Day 5 & 6: Serengeti, The Great Migration

On these two incredible days, you will be exploring different regions of the vast plains of the Serengeti. Depending on the time of year you visit will dictate which regions of the Serengeti are to be explored. Earlier months of the year will bring you to the more southern plains to witness the herds of the migration & possibly even get to witness part of the calving season. Into the later summer months, this could bring you to the more remote northern regions of the Serengeti to possibly witness a Mara River crossing!

Day 7: Serengeti to Arusha

Animals are mostly active during the evening hours, so we suggest a very early morning start to the day to catch some of the action & to watch the sunrise over the plains, one of the most unforgettable experiences. We will enjoy a picnic style lunch in the plains of the Serengeti and then we’ll proceed to on our route back to Arusha or to the airstrip in the Serengeti if you plan to add on a tropical beach extension.
