On arrival in Kilimanjaro Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel by an Encircle East Africa representative. There will be a trip briefing at the hotel at approximately 6.00pm this evening. The rest of the day will be at your leisure. Please note this is an arrival day and there are no excursions planned, so you may arrive at any time. Accommodation: Hotel

This Morning after Breakfast,we head off on a three-hour drive through Arusha town to Tarangire National Park. Tarangire National Park lies to the south of the Masailands and is defined by large open savannahs dotted with acacia woodland and large baobab trees. With the presence of the Tarangire River, this park forms a refuge during the dry season for many migratory animals. Accommodation: Permanent tented camp

At Tarangire you will enjoy a full day game. The Tarangire corridor is used by the animals to migrate from Tarangire to Lake Manyara in search of water and grasses. During the migration periods, you may be lucky enough to witness the migration of zebras, wildebeest and elephants right from the veranda of your tent. This is the real African bush experience! We have a whole day in the National Park, but as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day, we will usually return to camp during the middle of the day to enjoy a hearty meal, relax and maybe take a siesta. Accommodation: lodging and Permanent tented camp

Today you leave for the wide-open plains of the Serengeti. To reach the Serengeti you must travel through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, skirting the Ngorongoro Crater before entering into the Serengeti. You will spend the afternoon on a game drive covering the more southern regions of the Serengeti before reaching your camp site for the evening. Accommodation: lodging and Permanent tented camp

The seemingly endless Serengeti Plains capture the essence of Africa. They are home to massive numbers of grazing animals and also various predators, and the interaction between the many species often provides some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in the world. Today you will start around sunrise for a morning game drive and follow that up later on with an afternoon game drive, as the animals tend to be more active in the cooler hours of the day. You will usually return to camp during the hotter hours in the middle of the day, where you will enjoy a hearty meal, relax and maybe take a siesta. Depending on wildlife movements and opportunities for sightings, the drive may continue through lunch and last all day. In this case, you will return to camp in the late afternoon. Accommodation: Lodging and Permanent tented camp

This morning you will have time to further explore the Serengeti and perhaps visit Simba Kopjes, an outcrop of rocks favoured by lion and cheetah, who can often be seen basking in the morning sun. You will spend your time game viewing and will stop for a picnic lunch on the drive from Serengeti National Park back toward the Ngorongoro Conservation area. Accommodation: lodging and Permanent tented camp

Today you will explore the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater, widely regarded as a microcosm of natural habitats in Africa and often touted as a veritable Garden of Eden. Within this crater lies every type of ecosystem, including riverine forests, open plains, freshwater and alkaline lakes. Ngorongoro Crater is the remnants of an ancient volcano caldera, and within its 300 square kilometres is a remarkable concentration of wildlife. The scenery is spectacular as you descend almost 600 metres down to the crater floor. There is every chance that you will see a considerable variety of wildlife in this compact area, including the highly endangered black rhinoceros. In the afternoon you will leave the crater and return to camp for a second night. (National park regulations stipulate that vehicles are only allowed a maximum of six hours in Ngorongoro Crater.) The late afternoon can be spent relaxing at the camp. Accommodation: Lodging and Permanent tented camp

This morning we leave Karatu and drive back to Arusha (approximately 4 hours). We expect to arrive back in Arusha around noon. Please do not book any international departures until after the next day..

Today is sure to be a highlight as you get to leave a lasting difference in the Masai community projects. Take a return day trip to Kiserian village, Future Warriors Project is a grassroots not-for-profit providing targeted livelihood, health and cultural support to Maasai communities in Tanzania. You will interact with the Maasai community and be introduced to Sianga’s parents and projects that Sianga is working to support his communities. Visit our under-construction tourism center. Future warriors also run a school in west Kilimanjaro however due to time constraint this will be for your next trip to Tanzania.
