The nights are magical, as the winds seem to carry bed time stories from the ancient branches of the mighty African skies to your dreams where fairy tales have been waiting for you! Nowhere else does fantasy come alive as it does here. Awaken to beautiful bird song, leave only your footprints, take only your memories, as you walk alongside the creatures of the African wilderness. (breakfast | lunch | dinner)

Tarangire National Park
After breakfast at Treetops you will enjoy a full day of activities including game drives, a visit to an authentic Maasai village, a game walk, sundowners in the bush and a night game drive. Lunch and dinner will be served at Treetops.
Tarangire has a stunning baobab-studded landscape and is a bird watchers paradise, containing the highest number of breeding bird species of any habitat in the world. It is also home to thousands of resident elephants and huge herds of cape buffalo, a good place to see leopard and lion and a wide variety of plains game.
Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It`s the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania, where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared Oryx and peculiar longnecked gerenuk may be observed.
Dinner at Treetops is always a delight, whether it is in the Maasai Manyatta under the stars with local Maasai warriors to entertain or in the more sophisticated dhow-wood furnished restaurant overlooking the floodlit water hole surrounded by giant baobab trees. (breakfast | lunch | dinner)
Accommodation: Tarangire Tree Tops

Ngorongoro & The Crater
After breakfast, an Elewana vehicle will drive you down to the crater floor for a full day of exploration of the Ngorongoro Crater. A picnic hamper lunch will be served right in the crater. After lunch you will explore more of the crater before heading back to the Manor for evening cocktails, dinner and overnight.
The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania was formed when a large volcano exploded and collapsed on itself forming the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it was even higher than Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. It is surrounded by an extensive highland area with the famous 600m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife heavens on earth.
Endangered black rhinos are protected within its rim; giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black maned lions stalk the grasslands and flamingoes crowd the soda lakes. An estimated 25,000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including a population of approximately 6,000 resident wildebeest, 16 highly endangered black rhino and approximately 70 lions. Cheetahs move in and out of the crater, while leopard are most often encountered in the spectacular Lerai Forest. (breakfast| picnic lunch | dinner)

This is a spa for your soul and nourishment for life’s stress. At Migration Camp, silence and peace are so enchanting, that they create a private symphony whose audience is your every sensation.

Serengeti National Park
After breakfast you will spend the full day exploring the vast Serengeti. Enjoy a lunch in the bush, after which the afternoon will be spent on game viewing. You will return to the Serengeti Migration Camp in time for sundowners and dinner.
In the Serengeti, although the great migration of the wildebeest happens at certain times depending on the rains and grazing, you will be assured of seeing great herds while staying at the Migration Camp at any time of the year. Grazing amongst the wildebeest will also be zebra and other plain’s antelopes and of course their predators will always be nearby looking for the weak and unwary. This makes a day`s game driving in the Serengeti an absolute delight and an experience to be treasured and remembered.
Today will be spent in an open Safari Cruiser, well stocked with picnic hamper and cool drink for the great expectation of finding great herds.
