This medium-length safari packs in as much as possible in five days. Beginning in Tarangire National Park, famed for its massive elephant population, you will begin your search for the Serengeti, the most famous safari destination on the planet. By the afternoon on day two you will enter the Serengeti where the climax of your safari will be spending two and a half days exploring the amazing ecosystem. The end of the journey takes place at Ngorongoro Crater, a microcosm of Tanzania’s wildlife which has remained unchanged for thousands of years. In just five days, this safari is guaranteed to be an unforgettable adventure.
In the morning you will travel to one of Tanzania’s most spectacular parks, Tarangire. Often compared to Serengeti, Tarangire boasts wide open savannas which are a sanctuary for wildlife. It is guaranteed to be a highlight of your adventure. You are most likely to see: Wildebeests, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, hartebeests, eland, antelopes, cheetahs, lions, tons of different bird species, and massive herds of elephants.
In the morning you will make your journey to the Serengeti, arriving at the park in the early afternoon. Hailed as the pivotal safari location and home to the annual migration of over a million wildebeest, Serengeti National Park offers sights of unimaginable beauty. Spanning over 5700 square miles, you will see more than mere glimpses of Tanzania’s wildlife, but instead will get the opportunity to experience the daily lives of the wildlife. You are most likely to see: Lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, herds of wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, elephants, rhinos, eland, impalas, gazelles, jackals, serval cats, ostriches, and MANY MORE!
Your second day at Serengeti National Park will give you an even greater opportunity to see the intimate moments rarely witnessed by human eyes… and spot all the members of the Big 5! Lions rearing their cubs or stalking their next meal… anything is possible in the Serengeti. You are most likely to see: Lion prides, cheetahs, leopards, herds of wildebeest, giraffes, zebras, elephants, rhinos, eland, impalas, gazelles, jackals, serval cats, ostriches, and MANY MORE!
In the morning you will depart for Ngorongoro doing a half day game drive on your way out of Serengeti. By the time you reach your overnight destination, you will have time to relax for the evening and prepare for your final day.
Your final day begins early in the morning when you will descend into the large crater which has remained unchanged for thousands of years. Inside the crater is a microcosm of Tanzania’s wildlife home to most of the animal species found throughout the country. With the crater walls serving as a natural enclosure for the conservation area’s animals, you have the chance to spot all your favorites. You are most likely to see: Wildebeest, buffaloes, zebras, gazelles, elephants, rhinos, hippos, lions, cheetahs, wild dogs, hyenas, and many different species of birds!
