Description

Discover the Maasai culture by spending a day in a village and go on a wildlife safari in the Tarangire and Serengeti National Parks and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Program

D1: Discovery of a Maasai village.
We pick you up from your hotel in Arusha after breakfast and then follow a 3-hour drive.
You will arrive around noon in the village of Ngare Nanyuki, where you will spend the afternoon and evening in the company of its Maasai inhabitants. You will spend the afternoon and evening with the Maasai people, discovering medicinal plants, having a spear wielding competition and dancing at sunset.

D2: Tarangire National Park.
Also known as the home of the elephants, Tarangire National Park owes its name to the river that runs through it. It is a beautiful place where it is very easy to see elephants, giraffes, zebras and other herbivores. In the same day, you will have the opportunity to see a variety of landscapes: forest, plain, savannah, bush, as well as the famous baobabs and acacias.

D3 to D5: Serengeti National Park.
The drive to the entrance of the park takes about 3 hours.
You will have the opportunity to explore the Serengeti National Park on the afternoon of the third day, the whole day of the fourth day and the morning of the fifth day, not forgetting the two nights you will spend in the heart of the park.
The Serengeti Park is the second largest game park in Africa with 4 million animals and nearly 15000km².
Known for the wildebeest migration to the Masaï Mara in Kenya, it is also renowned for the quality of the animals encountered: giraffes, hippos, as well as the famous Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros).
On the afternoon of the fifth day, you will drive about 3 hours to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and spend the night there in order to dive into the crater on the morning of the sixth day.

D6: Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
Early in the morning you will descend into the crater to discover its unique landscape. 
The crater is the undisputed jewel of the region and has a very high density of animals in a small area of 16 by 20 kilometers.
Indeed, in this small area, there are 25000 large mammals, including about 10000 buffalo, 7000 wildebeest, 4000 zebra, 3000 gazelle, 150 hippos, 50 lions, 30 elephants, 20 rhinoceros and other warthogs, jackals, hyenas, not to mention thousands of birds and, if you are very lucky, some cheetahs.
Ngorongoro is the second largest caldera in the world. Narrow winding paths lead to the bottom of the crater. You will be enchanted by the beauty of the landscape and the special atmosphere.
Return to your hotel in Arusha at the end of the day.
