Afternoon game drive in Tarangire National Park, the park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. In the late afternoon you will leave the park and drive to Tarangire Sopa Lodge
Day 2 Tarangire Area– Lake Manyara National Park
Have breakfast and depart for Lake Manyara National Park. Game viewing en route, you will arrive in time for lunch and check in at Manyara Serena Safari Lodge. After lunch depart for an afternoon game drive in Lake Manyara National Park, the park is known for its over 400 bird species, primate-filled forests and grassy plains. A large area of the park is covered by the alkaline Lake Manyara, the seasonal breeding grounds for large colonies of flamingos and many more waterfowls and also home to giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas and groups of noisy monkeys and baboons. After an extensive game viewing, drive back to the Manyara Serena Safari Lodge for dinner and overnight.
Day 3 Lake Manyara Area – Serengeti National Park
Early breakfast, collect packed lunch and drive via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti and at midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. This park is the largest in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes – short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water. After a full day spend in the park you will drive to Serengeti Sopa Lodge in time for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 4 Serengeti National Park
Full day game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from year to year but your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best. Dinner and overnight stay at Serengeti Sopa Lodge.
