The Tarangire River has water all year round and during the dry season, between July and October, many animals from the surrounding areas come to the river to drink. If you visit the park during the dry season, you will witness an unforgettable natural wonder as you observe exotic big mammals such as lions, giraffes, buffaloes, wildebeests, zebras, and various types of antelopes such as gazelles. During the dry season, Tarangire is also a haven for bird watchers with over 550 different species including the Maasai Ostrich - the world's largest bird.

The main guest area consists of reception, lounge area, restaurant and bar lounge and gift shop.
Day-9 Tarangire NP - Lake Manyara NP – Lake Eyasi
After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch to Lake Manyara for the game drive. The park is green throughout the year because of its underground water sources. Its verdant color attracts hundreds of spectacular varieties of migratory and wetland birds flying overhead. It also attracts huge populations of flamingos because of its shallow alkaline-saline (salt) soda lake. This creates an ideal environment for microorganisms to grow that feed the flamingos. Manyara's natural habitat also includes large troops of baboons, velvet monkeys, blue monkeys, and tree climbing lions, hippos, giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, buffalos, elephants, warthogs, impalas, Thomson-gazelles, and Grant gazelles. Leopards, cheetahs, rock/tree hyrax, kudus, elands, bushbucks, waterbucks, and dik-diks also live in this park.
Later in the evening drive to Lake Eyasi for evening leisure and hot dinner.
Day-10 Lake Eyasi cultural Visit – Karatu
Depart for cultural visit with the Hadzabe Bushmen, one of the most remote and last hunter-gatherer tribes on earth. We participate in various interactive daily activities with the Hadzabe, including a bush trek, hunting, honey gathering, baobab fruit foraging, tribal chanting, dancing and sitting around their daily campfires. The time spent with the Hadzabe Bushmen, as with other cultural groups visited, is not choreographed in a specific way. We just join in whatever they are doing during their day. As a result, it is important that we remain flexible because, if game is near, the Hadzabe dash off into the bush for it and we join them. In the late afternoon, we join the Datoga tribe, another well preserved traditional tribe in the Lake Eyasi area, and participate in whatever they are doing, such as making yogurt in a calabash, milking cows, making butter and joining their traditional dances.
Later in the afternoon, we drive back to Karatu for a leisurely evening and a hot dinner.
Day-11 Karatu – Serengeti NP
After breakfast, we proceed to the endless Serengeti plains. The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest and well preserved on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation, fauna and flora have barely changed over the past million years. The patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.One of the greatest natural phenomenon on earth in the Serengeti is the "Great Migration," for which the Serengeti is perhaps most famous. The Great Migrations includes more than 2.5 million wildebeest driven by ancient rhythms and natural instincts, following water sources in a clockwise cycle traveling 600 miles per year. The Serengeti is also the best destination for viewing big cats and other wildlife species. After a full day game drive in in the Serengeti, we arrive at the lodge for evening leisure and hot dinner.
Day-12 Serengeti NP – Crater Rim Walking Safari - Karatu
After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch for final game drive in Serengeti NP. After lunch, you will be driving in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater rim, the crater appears half a mile below you, inviting you to gaze at its natural wonder. You will be getting out of your safari jeep to enjoy the view while having a walking safari along the crater rim for an hour. Afterwards, you will proceed to Karatu for dinner.
Day-13 Ngorongoro Crater – Kilimanjaro International Airport
Early breakfast, and then descend into the crater for a half day crater tour. Ngorongoro Crater, formed 30 million years ago, is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the natural world and one of Africa's most remarkable geological sites. It is 100 square miles and drops a half-mile. It contains a unique ecosystem inhabited by 30,000 animals. A caldera is the floor of a volcano that has dissolved and dropped over time. Inside the worlds' biggest caldera, you cannot fail to be captivated by the rich and diverse wildlife. In the grass steppes and Acacia forest you will find almost every type of animal from the East African Savanna. The Big Five and most of the animal species found in the Serengeti, including giraffes, zebra, hippos, wildebeest, and cheetahs, can be viewed in the Ngorongoro Crater close up. The Ngorongoro maintains the historic balance between people and nature in a way that is not possible in other parks in Tanzania.
After lunch, proceed to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your flight to the next destination or back home.
