The perfect mix of exceptional game viewing and tranquil hammocks swinging in the sea breeze.

 

BRIEF ITINERARY

     Settle into your luxury canvas tent where you will spend your next 3 nights, surrounded by the arresting scenery and peaceful ambience from your private wooden veranda. Enjoy your evening looking over the bank of Mara River from the comfort of your armchair, watching as the wild animals congregate around the mineral rich soil and river water. With the local hippo pod wallowing in the mud, dozens of elephants gulping down water and playfully spraying each other, the area’s wildlife crowd provides endless entertainment.All the meals, local drinks and unlimited safari activities included.

  • Drive to Manyara National Park

    After breakfast we leave Arusha and drive to Manyara National Park. The road winds through luxurious jungle where groups of a hundred or more baboons can be found along the road. Blue monkeys climb in the acacia tress and the bushbuck antelope gentle grazing in the shade of the forest. In the meantime the impressive silvery-cheeked hornbills have a cacophonic concert in canopy! We stop for a picnic lunch under the Umbrella Thorn before continuing our game drive. This small park has herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and giraffe. It is famous of it's lions who lounge in the Umbrella Thorn (not the one we have our picnic under though!). At the end of the day we drive to our accommodation for the next 2 nights, on the green, lush outskirts of the small village of Karatu.

    After breakfast we drive the 30 mins to Ngorongoro Crater. We spend a full day here in the park discovering its wonders. The crater has an inside diameter of 20km, and is 600m from its rim. It is also one of the places in Tanzania to see the Big 5; elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo. More than 550 bird species are found here, and Lake Magadi in the crater is often pink because of the flamingos. We can also see the hippo and buffalo lounging in the mud in Ngoitotitok. It's a special place. We return to our lodge in Karatu for our overnight.

  • Tarangire National Park

    We have breakfast and depart our accommodation for Tarangire National Park. This park is famed for its large herds of wildlife, especially the elephants between August to January.

We have a picnic lunch and see the many baobab trees on the hilly plains that Africa is so famous for. The landscape is also dotted with a large number of termite mounds.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
