Itinerary - Day by Day

Day 1Arrive in Tanzania and pick up from the Airport

After clearing the baggage claim and customs you are met by a Safari Nuggets representative who will take you to your hotel for the evening. Your safari representative will be your guide and driver for the duration of your Tanzania safari.

Day 2Onwards to Lake Manyara

Hotel 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

This morning, begin your exploration of the highlights of Tanzania. Travel to Lake Manyara National Park, watching out for game en route. Spot the elusive tree-climbing lion, or watch for the twitch of a leopard’s tail as you make your way to the Migunga Forest Camp.

Day 3Onwards to Lake Natron

Hotel 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Head north towards Lake Natron after breakfast. There is an opportunity for an optional cultural tour in the town of Mto Wa Mbu to experience a typical day with the locals.

A guide from the village will take you through the markets, to rice fields, banana plantations, through the streets where people are cooking meals, to painters and carpenters with an opportunity to purchase some art.

You will also have the option to try some locally-made banana beer! This is a wonderful way to see the Tanzanian people in their everyday lives.

Day 4Lake Natron, Ol Doinyo Lengai and Hike to Waterfall

Hotel 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

This morning, you will meet your Maasai guide who will be with you for the next day. After breakfast, take a walk or drive to explore the area surrounding Lake Natron. Lake Natron is a surreal soda lake below the Rift Valley escarpment, and millions of flamingos flock here, as it is their only breeding ground.

Enjoy the views of Ol Doinyo Lengai, the only active carbonite volcano in the world before taking a walk to a nearby waterfall. The hike to the waterfall is typical during the dry season and is dependent on the weather. Enjoy some downtime at the camp in between or after optional tours. If you’re lucky, you may see a family of giraffes pass close by!

Day 5Serengeti National Park

Hotel 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Early this morning you will drive to a Maasai boma to witness a community’s morning routine, such as milking cows. Return to enjoy your last breakfast at the camp and head off to the Serengeti. Renowned for its wealth of lions and leopards, the Serengeti is the quintessential safari destination.

Derived from the Maasai word “urinate” meaning “endless plains,” the Serengeti plays host to more than a million wildebeest, 200,000 zebra, and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle during the annual migration.

Day 6Serengeti National Park

1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Head out for a full-day game drive in the Serengeti, examining one of the oldest ecosystems on earth. Little has changed in the Serengeti over the past million or so years, you will still find the renowned plains intermingled with wooded hills, massive termite mounds, rocky kopjes, and acacia tree-lined rivers. Depending on the time of year you will be able to witness the Wildebeest Migration (Dec-July), or an abundance of predators (June-Oct).

Today would be a perfect opportunity to have a morning hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti. Please let us know if you’re interested in this unique and exciting experience. We can look into availability and pricing for this option.

Day 7Ngorongoro Crater

1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Take an early morning game drive and return to camp in time for breakfast, then back out for another game experience before lunch. This afternoon travels towards the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and to your next accommodation for the evening.

Day 8Ngorongoro Crater

1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner

Today descend into the Ngorongoro Crater for a six hour tour. As the world’s largest caldera (nearly 100 square miles), Ngorongoro boasts over 20,000 large animals, including Tanzania’s remaining black rhino. Living alongside the abundance of wildlife here you find 40,000 Maasai pastoralists with their cattle, goats, and sheep. The conservation gives a rare look into how people harmoniously lived with nature and wildlife in ancient times.

We can plan an optional visit at Oldupai Gorge for an additional cost. Please let us know if you would like to add it. This site provides evidence of the earliest signs of mankind, showcasing hominid footprints preserved in volcanic rock that date back 3.6 million years. Return to Tarangire Safari Lodge for your final night in Tanzania.

Day 9Depart from Tanzania Back Home

1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch

Say goodbye to your new friends as you cross Tarangire National Park on your way back to Arusha to catch your flight home, or continue on your journey with an extension to Mount Kilimanjaro or on a Zanzibar tour.
