Scheduled to coincide with calving in southern Serengeti National Park, the wildebeest and zebra migration will be spread out in the plains before us attracting an abundance of lions and cheetahs.

Wildlife Wanderings
- 8 Day National Park Safari - (Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater & Lake Manyara)

Meet at arrival point and transfer to your lodge for pre-safari briefing. KARAMA LODGE (Dinner)

After a delicious breakfast at the lodge, we set off in the direction of Tarangire National Park via the colour craft markets of East Africa. We set off game driving for the afternoon. We return to our private camp on sunset which provides us with a classic bush experience that ensures intimacy. MARAMBOI LUXURY CAMP

An optional early morning walk starts our adventure today. Tarangire is home to an array of wildlife and this unique opportu- nity to view animal behaviours and natural habitats is exclusive tour camp. We return for a hearty breakfast before heading off to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Entering the Crater for an afternoon Game Drive is a spectacular way to end of day, and return to the crater rim for overnight NGORONGORO SOPA LODGE

We depart after breakfast to the endless plains of the Serengeti. Upon entering the Serengeti, we are able to game drive all the way to our mobile camp that is situated in the prime game areas (location depending on season). We enjoy an excellent lunch followed by an afternoon game drive. NASIKIA LUXURY MOBILE CAMP

We enjoy this unspoilt area where the viewing of the Wildebeest Migration is second to none for most of the year. Our camp has the intimacy as it is one of the only tented camps in the area and so habitats are natural. There are resident cats and herd animals for us to observe. NASIKIA LUXURY MOBILE CAMP

We enjoy an early morning game drive, followed by lunch and resting before setting off for an afternoon of wildlife viewing as the sunsets. NASIKIA LUXURY MOBILE CAMP

We transfer out of the Serengeti, passing through Oldupai Gorge. We enjoy lunch and a view of the archaeological sites (and visit the museum) where early human tools and fossils have been found. Transfer onto crater highlands for over- night.

We transfer into Lake Manyara for morning game drive and lunch, a classic safari picnic, and enjoy our final glimpse of the great wilds of the Northern Tanzania. Lake Manyara offers an insight into the Great Rift Valley system and the adaptation of many herd animals and magnificent birdlife. We continue Esilalei Maasai Village to explore the area and our school project. You are then transferred to Arusha and your departure point or lodge (Breakfast, lunch)

Some of the safari accommodations are in modern, deluxe lodges in harmony with the environment and constructed using local materials. In the Serengeti, you’ll stay at a mobile tented camp; immersing you with the sights and sounds of Africa. Food at all locations is well prepared, with local flair. We enjoy early mornings and late afternoons, for the best wildlife photography and light. Long days in the field and excellent driver-guides who are sensitive to the needs of photography/migration groups. We do not restrict ourselves to a rigid schedule of times, but instead allow the wildlife and environment to dictate our routine (within the regulations of the national parks and issued permits).
