Bursting with wildlife, the national parks of Tanzania will have you continually reaching for your camera. Travelling across the undulating plains of the Serengeti, go in search of the iconic Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes. Descending into the dramatic Ngorongoro Crater, a microcosm of famous East African scenery and wild game, lose yourself in the large herds of zebra and wildebeest. With so much to see and do, and the comfort of a lodge to rest in every night, this will certainly be a week to remember.
Day 1 Nairobi
Discover Nairobi's many bars, cafes and restaurants. Try visiting the Karen Blixen Museum for a peek into the life of this famous author.
Day 2 Arusha/Tengeru
After travelling into Tanzania, pay a visit to a local farm. Why not take the chance to milk a cow and feed the chickens? This is the perfect chance to learn about rural life in East Africa.
Day 3 Lake Manyara National Park
Try to spot Lake Manyara's legendary tree-climbing lions and watch out for the herds of zebras, wildebeest and buffaloes that roam the surrounding plains of this national park.
Days 4-5 Serengeti National Park
ravel via Olduvai Gorge to the Serengeti, where golden grasses stretch as far as the eye can see. Venture across the plains and around the rocky outcrops on safari to uncover the many animals that call the Serengeti home. Explore the national park at dawn and dusk, when both predator and prey are most active. Witness firsthand the unrelenting cycle of life on the African savanna. At night, relax in comfort back at the lodge.
Days 6-7 Ngorongoro Crater
Try to spot big cats lazing in the sun during an early-morning game drive. Before travelling on to the immense Ngorongoro Crater, soak up finals views of the sweeping Serengeti plains while enjoying a picnic lunch. The following day, descend to the floor of volcanic Ngorongoro on a 4x4 safari. An abundance of species coexist here including gazelles, zebras, buffaloes and elephants.
Day 8 Arusha
Explore a small village on a guided tour, visiting farms, homes and schools. Spend time with friendly villagers and learn about their way of life. Looking for a souvenir? Perhaps pick up some colourful artwork from the market before returning to Arusha to wind up the Tanzania Lodge Safari.
