Tarangire’s wildlife includes elephant, lion, giraffe, and many bird and antelope species.

Accommodation: Tarangire Safari Lodge

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Enjoy a full day of wildlife viewing. Tarangire National Park is one of the lesser-known parks in Tanzania, but rivals the Serengeti in its biodiversity. It’s an excellent option if you wish to encounter big game and fewer tourists during your drives. The park is also an exceptional birding destination, with a unique landscape, punctuated with large baobab trees and termite mounds dotting the woodland ecosystem.

Accommodation: Tarangire Safari Lodge

Day 3: Rift Valley Maasai to Lake Eyasi

After breakfast, enjoy a final game drive in Tarangire as you exit the park. Drive to Esilalei Village for a cultural tour with members of the Maasai tribe. Esilalei Village is located in the rolling hills near Lake Manyara National Park. You will go on a traditional medicine walk with a Maasai guide, and learn about the traditional uses of medicinal plants. After the walk, visit a boma, the Maasai traditional homestead. Picnic at Isoitok Camp before departing for the Lake Eyasi. Proceed to Ziwani Lodge for dinner and overnight.

Accommodation: Ziwani Lodge

Day 4: Hadzabe Tribe and Lake Eyasi

After a light breakfast at 5am, depart for your hunt with the Hadzabe Tribe. One of Tanzania’s only hunter-gatherer tribes, the Hadzabe speaks a click language. The hunt with the Hadzabe involves hiking over rough terrain. Learn how to shoot arrows and see a traditional shelter. Return to Kisima Ngeda in the late morning for an early lunch. Rest until the afternoon. Around 4pm, visit the Datoga Tribe, a pastoralist, nilotic ethnic group thought to originate from Southern Sudan.

Accommodation: Ziwani Lodge

Day 5: Lake Eyasi to Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast at Kisima Ngeda, depart for Ngorongoro Crater. Often called the eighth wonder of the world, Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world, and is one of the only places in Africa you can view every member of the “big five” (rhinoceros, lion, cape buffalo, leopard, and elephant) on a single game drive. Cross the Crater during your game drive and overnight at your booked lodge

Accommodation: Ngorongoro Sanctuary Camp.

Day 6: Ngorongoro to Ndutu

One of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world, Olduvai Gorge has furthered the understanding of human evolution. Visit Olduvai’s museum and learn about the discoveries made by Mary and Louis Leakey. After the visit, continue your drive to Ndutu. Although Ndutu is located in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, it is a part of the Serengeti Ecosystem, bordering Serengeti National Park to the south. The wildebeest migration is usually located in this area from December through March.

Spend the rest of the day on a game drive as you slowly make your way to Lemala Ndutu Camp, a mobile camp that follows the migration. Species commonly seen in the Serengeti include wildebeest, cheetah, zebra, lion, giraffe, impala, topi, and leopard. The Serengeti is also home to more than 540 species of birds.
