You will hear all about their crops and watch them being farmed. There may also be the opportunity to roast and grind your own coffee. After lunch you drive through the village of Mto Wa Mbu to your destination. You journey climbs part of the Great Rift Valley to get to your accommodation, the Lake Manyara Serena Lodge. You will arrive there in the late afternoon. It's a wonderful place to spend the first night of your Tanzanian safari, perched high on the escarpment overlooking the alkaline Lake Manyara. Overnight at Farm house valley Lodge

Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park – Serengeti National Park

In the morning you will explore Lake Manyara National Park on a short game drive. This picturesque lake is home to a large number of birds, including flamingos and pelicans, which can be seen in the water or on shore. The area is also renowned for black-maned tree-climbing lions, who have developed this habit due to the marshy soil. Witnessing one of these is real highlight of any safari. Large herds of buffalo and elephant are also often sighted. Next you will depart Lake Manyara for the wide open plains of the Serengeti. To reach the Serengeti you will travel through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, skirting the Ngorongoro Crater, before entering the great Serengeti. You will spend the afternoon on a game drive covering the more southern regions of the Serengeti before reaching your lodge. Overnight at Kati kati tented Camp.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

The seemingly endless Serengeti Plains capture the essence of Africa. They are home to massive numbers of grazing animals and various predators, and the interaction between the many species often provides some of the best wildlife viewing in the world. Today you will start around sunrise for a morning game drive, and follow that up later on with an afternoon game drive, as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day. You will usually return to camp during the hotter hours in the middle of the day. There you will enjoy a hearty meal, relax and perhaps take a siesta. Depending on wildlife movements and opportunities for sightings, the drive may continue through lunch and last all day. In this case, you will return to the lodge in the late afternoon. Overnight at Kati kati tented Camp.

Day 5: Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area

This morning you will have time to further explore the Serengeti and perhaps visit Simba Kopjes, an outcrop of rocks favoured by lion and cheetah, who can often be seen basking in the morning sun. Spend your time game viewing, stopping for a picnic lunch on the drive from Serengeti National Park back toward the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Along the way you will have the option to visit Olduvai Gorge, an site famous for the discovery of fossilised remains of prehistoric man. Overnight at Rhino Lodge

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater

Today you will explore the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater, widely regarded as a microcosm of natural habitats in Africa and often touted as a Garden of Eden. Within this crater lies every type of ecosystem, including riverine forests, open plains, freshwater and alkaline lakes. The scenery is spectacular as you descend almost 600 metres down to the crater floor. There is every chance of seeing a considerable variety of wildlife in this compact area, including the highly endangered black rhinoceros. In the afternoon you will leave the crater and return to the farm house for a second night. The late afternoon can be spent relaxing at the house. Overnight at Rhino Lodge.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Tarangire National Park

Bid farewell to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and travel back down the Great Rift Valley escarpment and through Mto Wa Mbu. Then you will reach Tarangire National Park, your final Tanzanian national park. Tarangire National Park lies to the south of the Masailands and is defined by large open savannahs dotted with acacia woodland and large baobab trees. With the presence of the Tarangire River, this park forms a refuge during the dry season for many migratory animals, ensuring that Tarangire's wildlife concentration is second only to that of Ngorongoro Crater. At Tarangire you will enjoy an afternoon game drive en route to your safari lodge, situated inside the park. Overnight at Maramboi tented camp.

Day 8: Tarangire National Park – Arusha

Enjoy an early morning game drive in Tarangire National Park before returning to Arusha in time for lunch. It's then time for fond farewells, as some of you may be staying on in Arusha. A departure transfer can be booked at an additional expense, to either Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) or Arusha Airport (ARK). Please ensure you do not book flights that depart prior to 5 pm.
