This Safari starts and ends at either the Nairobi or Kilimanjaro Airport.
You will be met at the airport by your Driver/Guide and personal Safari Manager. All of our safaris start first thing in the morning so if your flight is scheduled to arrive after 10:00 AM (after 6:00 AM if you have the Air Option) we will take you to your hotel in Nairobi or Arusha for a free day, with your safari starting tomorrow. Don't worry if your flight is late – they will be there when you arrive and will have made any necessary adjustments to your safari schedule.
Your safari starts with the drive to Tarangire National Park. From Nairobi you will either drive to Tarangire or, with the Air Option, you will fly to Kilimanjaro Airport and then drive to Tarangire. Once inside the gates of the park you will have time for your first game drive as you drive through the park on the way to your Lodge in time for lunch. In the afternoon you will enjoy your another private game drive in this reserve famous for it's huge numbers of elephants, baobab trees, zebras, antelope, giraffes, baboons and prodigious numbers of varied birds. You will return to the Lodge in time for dinner and overnight. (LD)
A full day of game viewing in Tarangire. Your Driver/Guide knows how to find the elusive species and, being in constant contact with other safari drivers, will learn where special sightings are happening and will often make a beeline there. Overnight in Tarangire. (BLD)
After breakfast, enjoy a final game drive through Tarangire as you start on your way to Ngorongoro Crater. A picnic lunch will be provided and your Driver/Guide will make several stops along the way at various places of interest, including a stop at the edge ot the escarpment overlooking Lake Manyara. After arrival in Ngorongoro you will head into the crater for a game drive at the bottom. Overnight in Ngorongoro. (BLD)
A wonderful full day game drive (with a picnic lunch) inside the Ngorongoro Crater. As very few animals migrate in and out of the crater with its 2000 foot high walls, you can expect to see lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, monkeys, hippos, flamingos, jackals, rhinos, antelopes and many birds and other species. As in Tarangire your Driver/Guide will be in contact with other safari drivers and will amaze you with his skill at locating the hidden animals. Overnight in Ngorongoro. (BLD)
Another full day game drive (with a picnic lunch) in the crater. Your Driver/Guide, having consulted overnight with the other Driver/Guides will head out in whatever direction will bring you to animals you haven't yet seen. Overnight in Ngorongoro. (BLD)
One final morning game drive before either leaving. You will drive to Arusha/Kilimanjaro and then to the Kilimanjaro Airport if flying back or by road if driving to Nairobi. A picnic lunch will be taken along. Whichever mode of transportation, upon arrival in Nairobi you will be taken either to the airport for your departing flight or to your hotel for an overnight stay. If you will be staying the night, transfers to the airport the next day are included. (BL).
