Unless your arrival time yesterday allowed time for your safari briefing, then this will take place after breakfast. We will provide you with all the essential information before we set off westwards to our first safari destination, Tarangire National Park. The park is best known for its elephant herds,
savannah, baobab trees, seasonal swamps, and the life-giving Tarangire River. Animals gather at the river and giraffes, bushbucks and hartebeests are often seen. With a bit of luck, you might even spot the fringe-eared oryx or the weird-looking gerenuk. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen every once in a while but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. Late in the afternoon, you will leave the park and drive to your lodge, Mto wa Mbu, where you will spend the night.

Rise and shine! It is an early departure to the lush highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Today’s destination is the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once you have reached the crater rim, you will drive down a steep track into the 600 m deep caldera to see a range of animals, grasslands, birds, and a lake. The massive collapsed
volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the Big Five to spotted hyenas, rare wild dogs, and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will return to Arusha, where you will arrive in the early evening. Accommodation: On request as per Departure instructions
