ITINERARY

Day 1 - Arrival at JRO airport. Transfer to the hotel. Pre-Safari briefing.

 

Day 2 - Half day at the Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, in our 4x4 Land cruisers (open roofed vehicle), we proceed to Tarangire National Park and do a half day game drive. Dinner and overnight stay at the campsite.

Day 3 - Full day at the Tarangire National Park

After breakfast, we do a full day game drive at Tarangire National Park famous for its herds of elephant and baobab trees and later drive to Karatu for dinner and overnight at the campsite.

 

Day 4 - Drive to Serengeti National Park

Drive to Serengeti National Park, and from the gate you will experience an en-route game drive to the North part of Serengeti.

From July, August to September, the Mara River in northern Serengeti affords the most dramatic river crossings. Fierce and deep, cliff-sided and rain-swollen, the river takes an enormous toll of the exhausted and terrified wild cattle that surge through its torrential

flow, some drowning helplessly, , falling victim to crocodiles, staggering, exhausted to dry land and often, in confusion, returning to the same scene of their ordeal allowing the cycle to repeat itself.

Overnight will be in the Northern Part of Serengeti for the preparation of the next day at the campsite.

 

Day 5 - Full day at Serengeti National Park

We spend the day focusing on the river and explore the predicted animal migration in the Northern part of Serengeti and Mara River. If lucky, we will see thousands of wildebeest and zebras crossing the river with the goal of reaching safely and alive to the other side, avoiding the river crocodiles. 

Drive back to the accommodation. Overnight at the campsite

 

Day 6 - Full day at Serengeti National Park

En-route game drive to Central Part of Serengeti. Spend your dinner and overnight at the campsite.

The Seronera has all the best features of the Serengeti with open plains, occasional kopjes and lines of hills to add interest. The resident game here is phenomenal, with high densities of relaxed leopards, cheetah and lions who live off the resident herbivores, as well as the migrating game depending on the rainfall.
