Full Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Arusha

Upon your arrival at the bustling town of Arusha, the gateway to Tanzania's safari destinations, you'll be greeted by the warm smiles of the Pita Safaris team. The first day is designed for relaxation and acclimatization. Settle into your hotel and take the evening to unwind. As night falls, the anticipation builds for the adventure that awaits.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

"Serengeti Bound – Game Drive and Camping Under the Stars"

Awaken to the call of Arusha's morning and, after breakfast, we head out towards the fabled Serengeti National Park. The drive is a spectacle in itself, with landscapes unfurling before your eyes. Arriving in the park, your senses will be treated to your first game drive, where the Serengeti's rich tapestry of wildlife begins to unfold. As dusk approaches, your guide will set up camp within the park's embrace, allowing you to sleep amidst the sounds of the nocturnal wilderness.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

"Full Day in the Serengeti – Exploring the Wilderness"

The entire day is dedicated to exploring the Serengeti, a place where time seems to stand still. Your guide will navigate the endless plains in search of the Big Five and the myriad of other creatures that call this place home. Each moment is a chance to witness nature's drama play out in its most primal form. As the sun sets, you return to the camp, where another night under the Serengeti's starlit sky awaits.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater Rim

"Morning Game Drive; Ngorongoro Crater Rim Camping"

Greet the Serengeti sun for one last morning game drive, savoring the fresh air and the chance of spotting animals in their early routines. Soon after, we depart for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The journey leads us to the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, a world heritage site and a haven for wildlife. Here, your guide sets up camp on the crater's rim, presenting you with breathtaking views and the thrill of sleeping on the edge of this ancient volcanic caldera.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater and Departure

"Ngorongoro Crater Adventure; Return to Arusha"

The finale of your safari is a descent into the Ngorongoro Crater floor, a natural amphitheater teeming with wildlife. The game drive here allows for up-close encounters with the diverse species that inhabit the crater. Reluctantly leaving this wonder behind, we journey back to Arusha.
