Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park Tour

In the morning you will start your safari with a drive to the Tarangire National Park, a huge park roughly the size of a small country. Savannah, baobab trees, and seasonal swamps dot the park’s landscape, providing nourishment and shelter for hartebeests, buffaloes, zebras, giraffes, various antelopes, and over 550 bird species.
The park prides itself on its large elephant herds, for which the park is famous, and has become one of the best places in East Africa to see them. These large mammals have become accustomed to the sound of the safari vehicles allowing for closer observation. After an extensive game drive, you will travel to a campsite just outside of the park for your overnight stay. Lunch; Dinner.

Day 2: Tarangire Area – Serengeti National Park Tour

Today you will set out on your journey through the lush highlands where corn, coffee, and wheat grew, to travel to the Serengeti National Park. Serengeti, named by the indigenous Masai people, means “endless plains”, which is easy to see once the grassy savannah stretches out before you with no end in sight.
The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impalas, buffalo, crocodiles, and hippos, but is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebras and wildebeest. The animals’ trek is determined by the rainfall and varies from year to year. In November and December, the animals move from the northern region, dominated by woodlands and hills, to the grassy plains of the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June, they return to the north. Apart from the migrating herds, you might have the chance to see predators, such as leopards, cheetahs, and lions, always lurking close by. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner.
