Detailed Itinerary of 12 days Tanzania wildlife and cultural, relaxation safari
Day 1: Arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport and transfer to Hotel in Arusha
When you arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport, your guide will welcome you and transfer you to a comfortable Arusha accommodation facility, where you will be briefed on the tour safari.
Day 2: Transfer to the Ngorongoro Crater area
After an early breakfast, you will be transferred in a four-hour, 160-kilometer journey to the Ngorongoro Crater region. You arrive in time for lunch before descending two thousand feet to the crater bottom. On your descent into the crater, learn some fascinating facts regarding this exceptional natural wonder of Africa. Around 2.5 million years ago, an enormous volcano exploded and collapsed on itself, creating the Ngorongoro Crater. It is the world’s biggest unbroken volcanic caldera, and it has been designated as a World Heritage Site and a sealed ecosystem! The grasslands of the crater are home to 25,000 large mammals and are one of the finest places in East Africa to see the big five: lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo, and elephant. Return to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 3: Full day at Ngorongoro crater
This day will begin with a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, followed by a guided nature walk around the crater rim to catch dramatic crater photos? Hike through lush vegetation teeming with colorful birds, wildflowers, and trees. Learn about the conventional medicinal uses of various plants, as well as animal and scat tracks. After the treks, return to your lodge for relaxation and lunch. In the afternoon, visit a Masai village in the Ngorongoro Crater. Spend time with the residents, learn about their culture, and join in on their energetic singing and dancing. There is an opportunity to learn about some traditional skills, such as fire-making and beadwork. You will return to your lodge for dinner and overnight
Day 4: Transfer from Ngorongoro Crater to Serengeti plains
After breakfast, drive northward for 2 to 3 hours to the Serengeti, one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders and home to the world’s longest terrestrial mammal migration, the wildebeest migration. Travel the scenic path through the Rift Valley and Maasai villages. Explore the Olduvai Gorge Museum in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which is close to where archaeologists Louis and Mary Leakey discovered the fossilized remnants of Homo habilis, one of the earliest members of the human species-genus, in the 1960s. When you reach in Serengeti, settle into your hotel for lunch.
In the afternoon, go on a game drive to view the park’s diverse wildlife. The Seronera River Valley, which is associated with the Great Migration, constitutes one of the finest places in Africa to see Big Cats (lions, leopards, and cheetahs) on spectacular hunts. Proceed to the hotel in the evening for unwinding, supper, and overnight.
Day 5: Full-day game drive at Serengeti Plains
You’ll begin the day with a leisurely brunch. After breakfast, start on a full-day game drive through the vast grasslands of the Serengeti. You’ll have lunch and some downtime before going out on an afternoon game drive in search of more animals and birds. You’ll depart shortly before dawn for a sunrise Serengeti tour. Because few predators pursue during the day, the thrill of the chase is best witnessed early in the morning. It’s also a magical time in the Serengeti National Park, with gentle sunlight dappling the scenery, birds waking up, and a sense of adventure emerges. Spend the day looking for hippos, elephants, buffalos, giraffes, lions, hyenas, cheetahs, antelopes, hartebeest, and zebras. Return to the lodge for dinner and a night stay.
Day 6: Another full-day game drive at Serengeti National Park
Spend another full day exploring the Serengeti’s Central Serengeti. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the lodge. The Masai call the Serengeti which means “place where the land runs forever.” With long swaths of grassland punctuated by flat-topped Acacia trees, the Serengeti has a typical “Out of Africa” feel. The plains have the greatest concentration of plains animals in the globe. African Wild Dog packs, Lion pride, Cheetah, Leopard, and Spotted Hyaena pride can all be seen trailing bands of Buffalo, Wildebeest, Zebra, Gazelle, Topi, Elephant, and Impala.
In addition, the Serengeti National Park is home to approximately 500 bird species, including the ostrich, Kori Bustard, Ground Hornbill, Secretary bird, and others. After another exciting day in the Serengeti, you will return to the lodge for dinner before retiring to bed for a good night’s rest.
Day 7: Transfer from Serengeti to Arusha
After waking up to a relaxed breakfast, you will embark on about a 6-hour drive from Serengeti to Arusha Town for departure and this makes the end of 7days northern Tanzania safari
