Day 2: - Arusha Lake Manyara National Park
After breakfast ,Then you depart to Lake Manyara National Park which lies approximately 1.5 hours (126km/80 miles) west of Arusha along a newly surfaced road, close to the ethnically diverse market town of Mto wa Mbu. Stretching for 50km along the base of the rusty-gold 600-metre high Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Manyara is a scenic gem, with a setting extolled by Ernest Hemingway as "the loveliest I had seen in Africa". From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy. You will do a game drive in the morning, followed by a lunch picnic. In the afternoon, we continue the game drive and finally we will reach our hotel.

Day 3- Ngorongoro Highlands
After breakfast we depart to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and have and early lunch at the Sopa Lodge. In the afternoon we drive to the Nainokanoka Masaai village and hike up to the rim of the Olmoti Crater. This crater is very interesting for walking safaris off the beaten track and you can still experience the rare sense of pure nature and peace, found only in remote, pristine places. In the evening we hike down to the base again and go to our lodge, Overnight at Panorama Tented Camp - http://www.safarihq.com/accommodation/panorama-campsite/

 

Day 4 - Ngorongoro Crater Floor
After breakfast we descend down to the ground of the famous Ngorongoro Crater for a game drive. The crater (610 meters deep and 260 km squared) is a microcosm of East African scenery and game. Scenic grandeur and stunning views are the hallmark of this wonder of the world. There are 25,000 larger animals within the crater itself, mostly zebra and wildebeest. However, this is undoubtedly the best place to see black rhinos in Tanzania as well as prides of lion that include the magnificent black-maned males. There are lots of colorful flamingoes and a variety of other water birds around the soda lake on the crater floor. The crater is home to more than 100 species of birds which cannot be found in the Serengeti. We will have lunch at the hippo pool picnic site, and later ascend to the rim and have dinner and Overnight at Panorama Tented Camp - http://www.safarihq.com/accommodation/panorama-campsite/


Day 5 - Central Serengeti National Park
After breakfast we depart for the Serengeti National Park with lunch boxes. We arrive at the Serengeti in the afternoon and will do a game drive in Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park. The Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 gazelles join the wildebeest's trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa.

Day 8 and 9 - Olduvai Gorge and Karatu Village
After breakfast, we will visit the Olduvai Gorge. This place is commonly referred to as "The Cradle of Mankind". It is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world and has been instrumental in furthering understanding of early human evolution. We proceed to Karatu where we will have dinner and overnight at Bougainvillea Safari Lodge - www.bougainvillealodge.net


 

Day 10 - Lake Eyasi
After breakfast, we will first have a walk through a coffee plantation, and then we will drive to Lake Eyasi. Lake Eyasi is a salt lake located between the Eyasi escarpment in the north (an ancient fault line that is part of the Rift Valley system) and the Kidero mountains in the south at an altitude of around 1000 metres. The area is hot and dry and home to the Hadzabe bushmen, who are believed to have lived here for nearly 10,000 years. We meet the Hadzabe people in the afternoon and learn about their lifestyle which still centers on hunting and gathering traditions. We will have dinner and overnight at the Tindiga Tented Camp


 

Day 11 and 12  - Tarangire National Park
After breakfast we meet the Hadzabe people again and accompany them when they do hunting. Then we depart for the Tarangire National Park. During the hot and dry season, the Tarangire River shrivels to a shadow of its wet season self. But still it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty animals have wandered hundreds of parched kilometres knowing that here, always, there is water. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem. We will have a picnic lunch in the park, do an afternoon game drive, and have dinner and overnight at whistle thorn tented camp
A road transfer to Arusha Airport will allow you to board a flight to the Tarangire. At the airstrip, a lodge representative will welcome you and escort you on a road transfer to Olivers Camp.
Two nights will be spent in the southern part of Tanzania's Tarangire National Park. An outdoor safari shower adds character to your en-suite safari tent that has a comfortable king-sized bed. Stare into the vast plains as you witness free-roaming animals wander past your private veranda.
You will be escorted on morning, and afternoon game drives that extend into the evenings on a daily basis. These drives are an opportunity for you to spot the large mammals that roam the plains from a specialized 4x4 safari vehicle. The night game drives are an advantageous opportunity to follow the nocturnal wildlife in the Tarangire.
With an emphasis placed on walking safaris, the guides that will assist you on your expedition into the bush are fully trained, experienced and armed. Track the spoor back to its owner as you attempt to identify the animals that have walked on the path before you. Game viewing expeditions at Olivers Camp aim to be an untamed experienced through which guests can get an authentic feel of Africa.
Fly camping is a popular activity amongst adventurists as it takes you on a spontaneous trip into the bush and allows you to sleep under the stars in the midst of the raw sights, smells and sounds of an untamed wilderness.
Make sure to take your binoculars and cameras along on your game viewing expeditions as you capture your moments in the bush. Bush dining serves breakfast and luncheon picnics in remote parts of the bush where you can enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
