Breakfast. Drive to Tarangire. Lunch at Oliver’s. Game
drives in Tarangire. Dinner and overnight at Oliver’s Camp.
Oliver's Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern
part of the park, in the middle of Tarangire's unspoilt
wilderness. The camp is ideally placed to access the yearly
migrations of wildlife, and to view impressive
concentrations at waterholes and in the spectacular Silale
swamps. This area offers the best chance of seeing lion,
leopard and cheetah and, especially during the dry season,
the swamps are filled with elephant, buffalo and zebra. The
camp is the perfect base to explore the busier
baobab-country in the north of the park, but at the end of

area around Oliver's Camp, thus ensuring you discover

Two overnights in Tarangire Oliver’s Camp. This is a
luxury tented camp situated in a remote area of the park, in
the middle of Tarangire's unspoilt wilderness zone. The camp
is ideally placed to access the yearly migrations of
wildlife throughout the ecosystem, and to view the
impressive concentrations at waterholes for a 6-7 month
season each year. Game drives explore Tarangire National
Tarangire National Park In Tarangire it is the vast
number of baobabs that first captures the eye. An expanse of
gently rolling countryside is dotted with these majestic
trees, which seem to dwarf the animals that feed beneath
them. All year long huge herds of elephants roam the park.
During an afternoon game drive it is possible to see
hundreds of elephants congregating down at the river,
drinking and bathing. The park is truly spectacular in the
dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species of
the Maasai steppe come back to the permanent waters of
Tarangire River. Herds of wildebeest, zebras, eland and Oryx
gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains
when they migrate again to good grazing areas. National Park
covers approximately 2600 square kilometers
Lake Manyara National Park Breakfast. Drive to Lake
Manyara National Park with picnic lunches. Arrive in the
park and proceed on game drives. This is one of the most
diverse of Tanzania’s national parks, a tiny (325km²)
combination of Rift Valley Lake, dense woodlands and steep
mountainside. Made famous by elephant researcher, Dr Iain
Douglas Hamilton in his book, ‘Among the Elephants’.
Manyara was established specifically to protect the
elephant herds that have made the area world-renowned. But
heavy poaching in the 1970’s and 1980’s decimated the herds,
although they are now recovering and returning to their
former strengths. Manyara is a birding paradise (more than
380 species), especially for waterfowl and migrants, and the
forests are one of the best places around to see leopards.
Lions hunt on the grassy shores of the lake, and are famous
for their habit of climbing trees. PM leave the park and
drive to Gibbs Farm Lodge for check in, dinner and
Ngorongoro Breakfast. Descend into the crater floor for
half day crater tour. Ascend and drive back to Gibbs Farm
Lodge for dinner and overnight. An atmospheric mid-size
lodge on the border of the Ngorongoro Forest reserve. The
lodge was established on the base of a colonial coffee farm
with lush gardens and coffee plantations, vegetable and herb
gardens. The farm is famous for its fresh homely cooking and
its laid back relaxed atmosphere. The garden and bordering
forest walks offer excellent walks and bird watching.
Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Crater is quite possibly
the most famous of all Africa’s conservation areas. It is
the largest intact volcanic caldera in the world. covering a
mere 260km², the 600 meter deep crater is home to a
permanent population of more than 30,000 animals, and is one
of the only places in Africa where you stand a real chance
of seeing the “Big Five” in the course of a morning or
evening’s game drive. Unique to the crater are the local
Maasai grazing their cattle on the crater floor, and it is
not unusual to see Maasai cattle and buffalo grazing
together, with a lion kill just a few hundred meters away.
Day 6 and 7:
After breakfast drive to Serengeti National Park with
picnic lunches. Arrive in the park and proceed on game
drives. Dinner and overnight in Serengeti Classic camping.

basis in Serengeti NP. Your large and spacious walk in tent

romantic alfresco bucket showers. Enjoy delicious
Pan-African and traditional bush cuisine. This is the soul
of Africa – no mains electricity and no running water – lose
yourself in the relaxing solitude of the mighty Serengeti,
far from civilization.
The name Serengeti stems from the Maasai word "Siring"
referring to "endless plains", and that’s really what it is.
The Serengeti is vast, stretching from the endless grass
plains in the South to the woodlands in the north up to the
Kenyan border. The size of the Serengeti eco-system as a
whole is virtually the same size as Belgium. The Serengeti
hosts the largest concentration of wildlife in the world,
thought to be more than 3 million, and is home to one of the
great wonders in the world, the Great Migration.
Over a million of Wildebeest move annually from the
southern plains, where they give birth in December - March,
to the north and the Mara River, and back, accompanied by
Zebra and other migratory mammals. Lion, cheetah, hyena,
hunting dog and crocodiles make sure only the strongest
