Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive at the Kilimanjaro International Airport and be transferred to the Springlands Hotel or similar hotel for overnight bed and breakfast.


Day 2
The drive from Moshi to Manyara National Park can take approx. 4 hours. In Manyara, after having a picnic lunch, you start the late afternoon with a game drive, which is also the best time to view animals in this park. When you approach it from the east, the Rift Valley escarpment looms on the horizon forming an impressive back drop to the lake. In the tall trees, forest monkeys leap from branch to branch, and on the escarpment, elephants stand in the shade of acacia. Other animals frequently seen are leopards, zebras, impalas, monkeys, giraffes, buffalos, hippos and others. Overnight at Highview Hotel or similar hotel (Breakfast, Lunch box, Dinner).


Day 3
The half-day drive to Ngorongoro Crater. This is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhino in Tanzania as well as the prides of lion that includes the magnificent black manned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and the variety of water birds. Other game-leopard, cheetah, hyena and lots of other members of the antelope family and small mammals of sorts can also be seen. Then in the late afternoon drive back to basic camp for lunch. In the late evening you may have walking safaris at the coffee plantations while watching birds and returning back to Highview Hotel or similar hotel at the evening (Breakfast, Lunch box, Dinner).


Day 4
Choose from hiking/cultural tours in Karatu or hiking in the Empakai Crater

KARATU: After breakfast, take a walking safari in coffee plantations, entering into the highlands around Karatu and go bird watching then back to the camp/hotel for a rest and lunch. In late afternoon, take another walk to local waterfalls or visit the cultural of the Iraqw people. In the evening return back to Highview Hotel or similar hotel for dinner and overnight.

EMPAKAI: After breakfast, drive through the highlands to the rim of the Empakai Crater. With its deep, very blue lake ringed by flamingo, Empakai is one of the most dramatic and beautiful treks. Walking in the crater, you will explore this unique forested crater on foot and marvel at the variety of wildlife and fauna. In the evening return back to Highview Hotel or similar hotel for dinner and overnight.

(Breakfast, Lunch box, Dinner).


Day 5
Drive from Karatu camp to Tarangire National Park, which takes approx. three and a half hours drive. This park is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, elands and Oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rain when they migrate again to good grazing areas. In the late evening drive to the airport to catch the flight back home (Kilimanjaro Airport) (Breakfast, Lunch box).
