Full Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Arusha

"The Safari Town Prepares You"

Your Tanzanian adventure starts with a warm welcome from our Pita Safaris team upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport. The bustling town of Arusha, a hive of safari activity, awaits to offer you a taste of local life. You'll be whisked away to your first night's accommodation where you can unwind, enjoy a scrumptious meal, and rest in preparation for the thrilling days ahead—dinner and overnight at Kibo Palace Hotel.

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park

"A Birdwatcher’s Paradise"

The journey to Lake Manyara National Park is as picturesque as it is promising. Enter a world where elephants roam beneath a canopy of emerald greenery and lions defy nature by climbing trees. You will spend the day immersed in the biodiversity of this compact park, which boasts over 400 bird species. By nightfall, you're settled at your accommodation, indulging in the tranquility of the African night—dinner and overnight at Lake Manyara Tortilis Camp.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

"The Iconic Plains Come Alive"

With the dawn chorus as your alarm, you'll journey out to the fabled Serengeti National Park. Your route is graced with uninterrupted game viewing, and upon arrival in the park, you’ll be greeted by the legendary plains. This day is devoted to the pursuit of wildlife sightings, the Serengeti's horizon only interrupted by the occasional acacia or silhouette of a wandering giraffe. As dusk falls, you’ll find solace in the comfort of your chosen lodge or campsite, surrounded by the sounds of the nocturnal Serengeti—dinner and overnight at Serengeti Tortilis Camp.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

"In the Heart of the Wild"

Your second day in the Serengeti deepens your connection with this ancient landscape. Today, you'll navigate through different territories, each hosting unique wildlife interactions. The elusive leopard, the stately elephant, and the regal lion are all within reach. As the sun sets, you'll recount the day's sightings over a fireside meal before retiring to your accommodation—dinner and overnight at Serengeti Tortilis Camp.

Day 5: Serengeti to Ngorongoro

"A Morning of Discovery, An Evening At The Crater's Edge"

Begin with a morning game drive in the Serengeti to soak up your final moments in this wildlife haven. After a hearty breakfast amongst the wild, you'll depart for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Your journey to the crater rim is punctuated with vistas of the highlands and the promise of a new realm of animal encounters. The evening is spent at a lodge perched on the edge of the crater, offering a preview of tomorrow's adventure with panoramic views—dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro Tortilis Camp.

"A Morning in the Cradle of Life, Journey Home"

Today you descend into the Ngorongoro Crater, a world heritage site and a natural amphitheater teeming with wildlife. During your morning game drive on the crater floor, you'll seek out the diverse species that call this place home. After lunch amidst this primordial backdrop, you'll ascend from the crater and commence your return to Arusha. There, you'll have an opportunity to freshen up, enjoy a farewell meal, and reflect on the journey before your transfer to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your flight home.
