Day 1: Arusha – Tarangire National Park 

Your driver / guide will pick you up at your hotel in Arusha in the morning and drive to the entrance of Tarangire National Park, which takes about 2 hours. You’ll have lunch in the park and spend the rest of the day spotting elephants, giraffes, pelicans, zebras and lots of other animals. In the late afternoon you’ll drive to your accommodation for the night, where dinner will also be served. 

Accommodation: basic camping at Migombani camp in Mto wa Mbu. 

Meals: lunch and dinner included. Lunch will be served in a lunchbox, dinner is freshly prepared by your personal chef.

Day 2: Ngorongoro crater – Arusha

The days starts early today, as we want you to see the sunrise. After breakfast you’ll head towards Ngorongoro crater for day 2 of your trip. You’ll enter the crater over the steep path that leads down. Get ready to take in the amount of different animals you’re about to see – only giraffes and a few other species are absent because of access to food and the crater itself. You’re basically guaranteed to see large numbers of gnus (wildebeest), zebras, buffaloes and gazelles and chances are you’ll be able to spot rhinos and leopards. So who knows, you might manage to tick off all the big 5 off your list in just 2 days! You’ll have lunch in the park and drive back to Arusha after that.

Accommodation: not included. 

Meals: breakfast and lunch. Lunch will be served in a lunchbox, breakfast is freshly prepared by your personal chef.
