Tanzania Wildlife Week is a non participation safari. Group size 2-6

Day 1

Kilimanjaro - Arusha. On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Driving away from the airport and out onto an open road with no city in sight… it feels like your safari has already begun. Ilboru Safari Lodge is located at the base of Mt Meru in Arusha on 5 acres of plush land. You will overnight at the foothills of this magnificent mountain in spacious, traditional African style rondavels with stunning vistas of the manicured garden.
Overnight: Arusha  |  Dinner

Day 2

Arusha - Tarangire - Karatu. Today we traverse the floor of the Great Rift Valley as we head to Tarangire National Park for a game drive. Tarangire National Park, named after the river that crosses through the park, is Tanzania’s sixth largest park and home to large herds of elephants. We spend the afternoon exploring the park before making our lodge, located on the outskirts of Karatu, midway between Lake Manyara and the Ngorongoro Crater.
Overnight: Karatu  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3

Karutu - Serengeti National Park. Today we have a long drive through arguably the best game park in the world. We will head to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater and then descend into the endless plains of the Serengeti. We meander our way through this famous park with fantastic game viewing as we head towards our tented camp in central Serengeti. The intimate camp offers tranquillity, spectacular wildlife sighting and no better place to take in one of the world's greatest wildlife spectacles! After lunch under the acacia trees we settle down for an afternoon in the African bush. Later a game drive with a cool box of drinks to enjoy while watching the sun set completes a great day in the bush.
Overnight: Serengeti N.P.  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4
Serengeti game drives

The Serengeti at sunrise is a beautiful sight and one not to be missed. This is also the best time for spotting animals so take advantage of the morning hours for the first game drive of the day. After a morning out, the smell of a cooked breakfast is welcomed as we enjoy a morning under the shade of the trees. Afternoons are normally a lazy affair that end in the late afternoon when the temperatures cool down and the animals start to be active again. Today is no different and at 4pm we will head out for an evening drive before returning to camp in time for drinks around the fire and dinner.
Overnight: Serengeti N.P.  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5

Serengeti - Karatu. After the thrills of the Serengeti, we head out on a full day’s game drive through the Serengeti towards the Ngorongoro Crater, pausing along the way to enjoy a packed lunch. After lunch, we continue our journey to our lodge passing through some incredible scenery and game rich country. We arrive at the lodge in time for a relaxing drink and a delicious dinner in the lush surroundings.
Overnight: Karatu  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6
Ngorongoro Crater

Karatu - Ngorongoro Crater - Karatu. This morning the Ngorongoro Crater awaits us. The Crater is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated 180km west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. After an early breakfast, we will head out towards the Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera, where we experience an amazing game drive on the crater floor filled with wildlife and said to be one of the most thrilling game spotting experiences. The crater won’t leave you disappointed. Back at the lodge it’s time to enjoy our last African sunset and dinner.
Overnight: Karatu  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7

Karatu - Lake Manyara - Kilimanjaro. This morning we visit Lake Manyara National Park whose shores are a shimmer of pink, due to the large flamingo population and it was once dubbed as the ‘loveliest lake in Africa’ by Ernest Hemingway. We have a morning in the park on a game drive and if we're lucky we'll see the tree climbing lions that the park is famous for. Then we travel via Arusha back to Kilimanjaro Airport for your onward flight. Please make sure international onward flights are booked AFTER 6pm, or 5pm for domestic flights.
