Details Of the 5-Day Tanzania Lodge Safari Itinerary
DAY - 1: ARRIVAL IN ARUSHA
You will be picked up from the airport by a Kanje representative and conveyed to your accommodation in Arusha. Here you will overnight, relax, and prepare in anticipation of the adventures to come. You'll stay at Arusha Planet Lodge that is an oasis of calm and aesthetic pleasure.
DAY - 2: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
After breakfast, your safari guide will collect you from your accommodation and drive you to Tarangire National Park (approximately 2 hours away). Tarangire is best known for its elephant families, savannah, iconic baobab trees, seasonal swamps and the life-giving Tarangire River. Animals gather at the river and giraffe, bushbuck and hartebeest are often seen here. The Park is also home to buffalo, zebra and wildebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators such as lions and leopards. From the open roof of the vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the wildlife.
You will enjoy a picnic lunch in the park, which includes a delicious lunch, coffee and soft drinks.
After a full day in the park, you will drive to your accommodation, where you will be able to relax, enjoy dinner and spend the night.
DAY - 3: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
After an early breakfast, you will head towards the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest volcanic caldera. It is almost 20 km wide, approximately 600 m deep, and is known for its large variety of wildlife. In addition to the Big Five, the various springs attract animals such as wildebeest, gazelles, reedbucks, and more than 500 bird species.
After lunch, you will head towards the Serengeti. The Serengeti National Park is the largest park in Tanzania with diverse landscapes and habitats, such as grassy plains, swamps, lakes, savannah, and mountains. After an extensive game drive, we drive to the Seronera Valley for an evening meal and overnight stay.
DAY - 4: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK TO KARATU
You will enjoy another early breakfast and set off on your game drive at about 6:30 am, spending 6-7 hours exploring this incredible Park. The Serengeti is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife, such as impalas, buffalo, crocodiles and hippos. It is more well-known for its great migrating herds of zebras and wildebeest. The animals' trek is determined by the rainfall and it varies from year to year. Apart from the migrating herds, you may see predators, such as leopards, cheetahs and lions. At roughly 2:00 pm you will head back towards Karatu, arriving in time for dinner.
DAY - 5: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK TO ARUSHA
After breakfast, you will drive to your final destination on this epic safari, Lake Manyara National Park. This is a relatively small but diverse park, 120 km west of Arusha. The park’s namesake is a shallow, salt lake. It covers a large area of the park, flooding and drying with the seasons and is home to thousands of flamingos and over 500 other bird species. On your exploration of the park, you will see monkeys, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalo, elephants, and with some luck lions lounging in the trees. The park is known for its diverse landscapes; not only open grassy plains but also primate-filled woodlands and baobab dotted cliffs. After an extensive drive, you will head back to Arusha where you will arrive later in the evening.
