Tanzania is without doubt a fairy tale destination; a little like stepping into the world of Disney’s Lion King. This round trip really focusses on the magnificent national parks of Tarangire, Serengeti & Ngorongoro crater, the largest crater in the world and single in its kind. You will explore this a world which abounds with game: elephants, zebra, lions,... and reside in the middle of nature. Tip: A few days relaxation at the paradisiacal beaches of Zanzibar is the perfect stopover before heading home...
Day 1 - Arusha
Meet and assist by the local representative at the airport + transfer to the Moivaro Lodge, about an hour's drive from the airport. The pool offers beautiful views of the garden in which your cottage is located. YOu can spend the remainder of the day at leisure.
Day 2 - Arusha > Lake Manyara National Park (B L D)
Morning depart Arusha passing through the Masai Steppe filled with many picturesque African villages as well as maize, coffee and banana plantations.

Lunch at camp and then afternoon game drive in Lake Manyara National Park
Day 3 & 4 - Lake Manyara National Park > Serengeti National Park (B L D)
The next stop on your route is Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. This is the oldest and perhaps most renowned African game park. In Masai 'Serengeti' means big, infinite plain.
So you set off after breakfast armed with a picnic lunch. En-route you stop at the village of Mto wa Mbu to visit the local market. You then continue your journey towards Serengeti National Park, arriving at your camp by late afternoon in time for dinner and overnight.

Upon arrival into Ngorongoro you descend into the crater where a major highlight awaits: the chance to explore what is commonly referred to as the World’s largest wildlife zoo. Ngorongoro features the largest crater in the world and a visit to this magic place is like stepping into an aquarel painted with all shades of green: breathtaking and simply unforgettable. You arrive at your lodge by late afternoon in time for dinner.
Day 6 - Arusha (B)
Hotels & Meals
One of Tanzania's, and other parts of eastern Africa's, most common cultural dishes is Ugali. It is usually composed of corn and is similar in consistency to a stiff paste or porridge, giving it its second name of corn meal porridge. Mixtures of cassava and millet flours are locally used for ugali. Rice and cooked green bananas are also important staples. Beef, goat meat, beans, yoghurt and a wide range of fish and green leafy vegetables all add nutrients to the dishes.
