It’s a great way to bring the whole family closer together!

Accommodation: Planet Lodge

Day 2:
Arusha – Tarangire National Park
After breakfast at the Hotel you will start your Tanzania Family safari towards Tarangire National Park with lunch boxes. The park gets its name from the river that threads its way through the length of the reserve. It is famous for its dense wildlife population which is most spectacular between June and October, the dry season. During this time thousands of animals, elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, eland, hartebeests, kudus, Wildebeests and the rarely seen Oryx, migrate from the dry Maasai Steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water. Lion, leopard and other predators follow the herds. In the evening you will arrive at the camp/Lodge for dinner and overnight.
Accommodation: Burunge Tented Camp

Day 3:
Tarangire National Park – Serengeti National Park
After breakfast your Tanzania Family Safari  brings you to a long trip to the Serengeti National Park. You will pass the Lake Manyara, the Great Rift Valley, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the crater rim with a short stop on top at the Prof. Grzimek memorial with a spectacular view down into the crater. On your way you will pass the border between Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Serengeti National Park the Naabi Gate. When you climb up the big stones at the Naabi Gate, you will have a spectacular view on the endless plains of the Serengeti. After entering the Serengeti National Park you will start with game drive en route. Lunch Boxes will be served in between. In the early evening you will arrive in your camp for dinner and overnight.
Accommodation: Kati Kati Camp

Day 4:
Serengeti National Park
Today you will have a full day game drive in the Serengeti. The Serengeti is rich in its diversity of landscape. Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value. You return to your lodge for hot lunch. Between the open plains of the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara, thousands of wildebeests and zebras migrate to greener pastures as the seasons change and the circle of life and death continues. Predators follow the Wildebeest Migration closely, waiting for an opportunity to strike weak prey as they make their way into different territories. The precise timing of the Wildebeest Migration changes annually and it is a very unpredictable and spontaneous natural event.
Accommodation: Kati Kati Camp

Day 5:
Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area – Karatu
Today you will leave the Serengeti with game drive en route towards Ngorongoro Conservation Area. On your further way you will have a stop at Olduvai Gorge.

In 1959 Mary Leakey found “Zinjanthropus Boisei” a well preserved cranium dated 1.75 million years old. 3,6 million year old footprints were found in that Area at Laetoli by the couple Leakey. Afterwards you will visit a Massai boma. You can take part at their dances and you can go inside their houses. In the later afternoon you will arrive at your lodge for dinner and overnight.

Karatu – Ngorongoro Crater – Karatu
After an early breakfast you will start for Ngorongoro Crater tour. Enjoy the view from the crater rim and you will understand when we talk about the masterpiece of mothers` nature. You descend to the crater floor for a spectacular game viewing. The Ngorongoro Crater was formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed on itself some two to three million years ago. The caldera is about 600m deep and covers 250sq.km. It hosts about 30.000 large animals including some of the Tanzania’s last remaining black rhinos. Thanks to anti-poaching patrols the number of black rhinos is about 25 now. Most of the animals stay in the crater year around, because water supplies never dry out. You will find hippos, hyena, jackal, cheetah, lions, ostrich, elephants, warthog, eland and hartebeests there, as well as huge herds of Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles. Even leopards find their home in the trees and forests, surrounding the crater, but are rarely seen. The landscape around the Crater the “Ngorongoro Conservation Area” is made famous by large herds of giraffes and the migration of millions of wildebeest, zebras, eland and endless numbers of gazelles from Serengeti to NCA and back each year. Lunch will be served at the hippos’ lake before ascending to the Lodge for Dinner and overnight.
