Full Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Arusha

Upon landing at Kilimanjaro International Airport, your Pita Safaris adventure begins. Our representative will warmly greet you and facilitate your transfer to a cozy hotel in Arusha. Set against the backdrop of Mount Meru, Arusha offers a tranquil environment to unwind and prepare for the exciting days ahead. Spend the evening at leisure, perhaps taking a stroll through the vibrant town or simply relaxing in anticipation of the wildlife encounters that await.

Day 2: Tarangire National Park

Today, we delve into the wilderness of Tarangire National Park, renowned for its high density of elephants and majestic baobab trees. After breakfast, we set out on a scenic drive to Tarangire, where the untamed bush beckons. An afternoon game drive reveals the park's diverse inhabitants, from wandering herds of buffalo to prowling lions. As dusk falls, we retire to our campsite within the park. Underneath the starlit sky, your guide will set up camp, and you'll experience the thrill of camping in the wild, recounting the day's sightings and savoring a meal prepared over the campfire.

Day 3: Lake Manyara National Park

Awaken to the sounds of nature as we break camp and journey to the picturesque Lake Manyara National Park. A day of exploration awaits, with a game drive to witness the park’s famous tree-climbing lions and large flocks of flamingos adorning the alkaline lake. The lush groundwater forest and expansive grasslands offer a stark contrast to the previous day's terrain. Following an eventful day among the rich biodiversity, we set up camp on the outskirts of the park. Here, you can reflect on the day’s adventures and enjoy a night under the stars, enveloped by the sounds of the African wilderness.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater and Departure

On the final day, we embark on an early morning descent into the Ngorongoro Crater, a World Heritage site and haven for wildlife. This natural amphitheater is home to a remarkable concentration of animals, including the Big Five. After a thrilling game drive on the crater floor, where close encounters with the inhabitants are a highlight, we ascend to the crater rim and bid farewell to this natural wonder. We journey back to Arusha, filled with memories of a lifetime, before transferring to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your flight home.
