5 Days safari in Tanzania


Discover the northern part of Tanzania on this beautiful 5 days Tanzania Safari. The Ngorongoro Crater is for most people one of the reasons to come to Tanzania. It is home to the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa, including the Big Five.

One of the lovely smaller parks, Lake Manyara, is known for its breathtaking scenery, soda lake full of flamingos and outstanding bird life. You will finish your safari in the kingdom of the elephants, Tarangire National Park. The hilly landscape, with majestic Baobab trees against the blue sky, is breathtaking.

You can also observe a specific animal or herd for as long as you like during the safari. You don’t have to be considerate of anyone. Your personal guide will advise you during the safari so that your trip will be an unforgettable experience.
Tomorrow morning your safari will begin!

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Today you depart after breakfast to Tarangire National Park for a full day game drive. Since this is one of the less known parks in Tanzania, it still has an authentic safari atmosphere. The hilly landscape, with Baobab trees scatterered against the blue sky, is breathtaking. Witness the worlds largest concentration of elephants.

Herds of up to 300 elephants can be seen around the Tarangire River, drinking or enjoying a mud bath. Apart from elephants, Tarangire is a paradise for bird lovers. In the area around the swamps you can also see lions, leopards, cheetahs and even tree-climbing pythons.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is immens, and contains what might be the most special place in Africa – the Ngorongoro Crater! This is a relatively small but very fertile piece of land of 20 by 20 kilometers surrounded by a steep craters edge. Nowhere else in the world you will find this many wild animals on such a small area; on an average day 25,000 big mammals can be found here!

This means that today you stand a big chance to spot some members of the Big Five: lions, elephants and buffaloes roam around here in numbers. Last but not least the crater is home to a few dozen rare black rhinos, which makes this the best place to spot one!

Later on after lunch drive to Serengeti National park for dinner and overnight.

This is the true safari experience! Subsequently you will pass through the Ngorongoro Highlands on your way to or from Serengeti, an impressive landscape where you might run into groups of giraffes or some members of resident Maasai tribes.

Day : 4 Serengeti National Park Full day game drive

The word Serengeti means endless plains in the language of the Maasai, which is exactly what you will see the coming days; miles and miles of African savannah! And trust us: it might be the most impressive landscape you will ever see. Of course, Serengeti National Park is home to an enormous variety of wildlife, which is why some many nature documentaries where shot here.

Submerge yourself in this unique landscape, while wildebeests and zebras pass you by in their Great Migration. Spot lions on groups of rocks called kopjes, leopards in single trees or cheetahs hunting for a calf in between the wildebeests. Pass by giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, gazelles and a vervet cat or wild dog if you are lucky. The epitome of romance you can experience in a hot air balloon above these plains (which can even have the shape of a heart!).

Day 5: Serengeti - Airport

Today is your last day on your Tanzania safari. Depending on your flight, use your last morning to fit in a final, epic game drive. You will be picked up by your private driver and taken to  Seronera, Arusha Airport or Kilimanjaro airport in time for your return journey home.
