Day 2: A Day at Arusha National Park

Start your day with breakfast in the tranquil surroundings of your hotel before heading to Arusha National Park. Explore its dense forest, Momella Lake, Ngurudoto Crater, and the Small Serengeti. Enjoy an awe-inspiring game drive with spectacular views, including flamingoes at Lake Momella and the White Colobus Monkey. In the afternoon, drive to West Kilimanjaro for an overnight stay.

Day 3: Nature Walk at West Kilimanjaro

Begin your day with the irresistible charm of mingling with the Maasai firsthand. Later, enjoy an escorted walk to the natural forest of West Kilimanjaro, spotting giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and occasionally cats.

Day 4: The Magnificent Natron

Embark on a diverse journey after breakfast, departing from the snowy vistas of Kilimanjaro to venture across the Longido Area towards Natron.

Day 5: Natron - Into the Northern Serengeti

Awaken to the remarkable Ramsar Site Lake Natron, renowned as one of the deadliest and saltiest lakes globally. Despite its lethal natron content, its glassy surfaces allure birds often ensnared and petrified. Despite its dangers, it's a breathtaking breeding ground for flamingos. Marvel at the scenic view of Oldonyo Lengai before escaping the heat as you journey to the legendary Serengeti, specifically the Northern Serengeti, for relaxation and an overnight stay.


Journey with Wild Call Tanzania Safaris

Day 6: Venturing the Land of the Great Crossing

The Northern Serengeti, though less frequented, is renowned for its untouched vegetation, providing a spectacular haven for newly migrated wildebeest post-crossing. Witness the breathtaking stampede of wildebeest and zebras as they brave crocodile-filled rivers in search of greener pastures—a scene of a lifetime on an African safari.

Day 7: A Day in the African Mecca

After breakfast, explore another part of the Serengeti: the Central Serengeti. This area boasts an unparalleled abundance of big cats and serves as the permanent residence for a diverse array of wildlife, including antelopes, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, giraffes, and various bird species. Enjoy an unforgettable wildlife viewing experience and return to your lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 8: Get into the African Eden Garden Ngorongoro

Venture from the savannah plains to the Ngorongoro Highlands, aiming for the descent into the Ngorongoro Crater. Named after a Maasai term meaning "dark hole," the crater's origins stem from a millennium-old eruption. Hosting over 300 wildlife species, it's a natural marvel.
