7-Day Epic Mid-Range Tarangire Manyara Crater Serengeti

7-Day Epic Mid-Range Tarangire Manyara:  This 7-day lodge safari allows us to experience the highlights of the Northern safari circuit. We encounter breathtaking wildlife in the midst of some of the most diverse landscapes; monkeys in the forest, lions in trees, elephants amongst the acacias, and a huge variety of animals inside a collapsed volcano. We also visit the world-famous Serengeti National Park. The landscapes are breathtaking and the variety and volume of wildlife we see are unforgettable. Epic, in the true sense of the word

We set out for Tarangire National Park across gently rolling Maasai plains with scattered acacia trees. As we zip along, we pass many Maasai in their colourful dress walking on the roadside, riding bicycles, herding cattle and driving donkeys carts. Tarangire National Park, well-known for its large elephant herds, is also host to a multitude of other creatures. From the open roof of our safari Jeep, we experience the seasonal swamps, savannah and life-giving Tarangire River. We hope to encounter a multitude of creatures, including zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, elephant, and giraffe, to name but a few. You may even catch a glimpse of lions stalking prey, or leopards relaxing in the trees above.

7-Day Epic Mid-Range Tarangire Manyara

The Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania, covering an astounding 15,000 sq km. It has diverse landscapes and habitats such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah and mountains. Here, the great migration of wildebeest, zebra, and antelope takes place and, depending on the season, we may have the opportunity to witness thousands of animals in their search for food and water. After an extensive game drive, we drive to the Seronera Valley for an evening meal and overnight stay at your accommodation.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

This entire day is set aside for game drives in the Serengeti. The Serengeti, the habitat of an abundance of wildlife such as impala, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo, is famous for its great migrating herds of zebra, antelope, 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, we may have the opportunity to see the resident predators like leopard, cheetah, and lion, fulfilling their role in the circle of life.

 

After an unforgettable day, we will return to our carefully selected partner tented camp for relaxation, dinner and our overnight sleep on the endless plains.

Day 5: Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After an early breakfast, we head out for another game drive in the Serengeti. We have an opportunity to spot the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard – before embarking on our journey to the Ngorongoro Crater. The animals roam freely through the unfenced reserves, offering us an uninterrupted game viewing experience.

 

On arriving at the edge of the crater, we have our first glimpse of what awaits us the following day – glistening streams, open grassland and a myriad of animals. We spend the evening and night at one of our carefully selected mid-range partner lodges, boasting aesthetically tasteful restaurants and the most spacious rooms for your rest, relaxation, and dreams of the African wild.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater

Early risers are rewarded with breathtaking views of the rising sun over the crater’s edge. After a hearty breakfast, we rumble down the adventurous track into the crater. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the Seven Wonders of Africa, formed about 3 million years ago, is 610 m deep, and covers roughly 260 sq km. Due to its dense animal population of approximately 25,000 ungulates, the crater offers the best game viewing of all the parks in Tanzania. In a matter of minutes, we will be able to see wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, elephant, and some of the more than 500 bird species inhabiting the area. With a little bit of luck, we may even catch a glimpse of the endangered black rhino through the grass.

 

After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch, we leave the crater in the afternoon to travel back to Karatu. We will stay in one of our hand-picked, quality, mid-range partner lodges.

Day 7: Lake Manyara National Park

After breakfast, we drive to our final destination on this epic safari – Lake Manyara National Park. This relatively small but diverse park, 120km west of Arusha, is named for the shallow salt lake which covers a good 70 percent of the park’s surface area. Flooding and drying with the seasons, the soda lake is home to thousands of flamingos as well as over 500 other bird species.

 

During our exploration of the park, we will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalos, elephants, and with some luck, lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes, not only the open grassy plains, but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After another memorable game drive, our adventure comes to an end. We return to Arusha in the late afternoon, filled with images of the African wild to last a lifetime.
