Everyone loves dreaming and exploring. But there are Safari enthusiasts who take the matter to the next level; from tracking a bird with her prey, to paying attention to a lovely insect climbing on the flowers, to following a herd to its territory, it’s all about exploring. Oclaa Adventures and Safaris warmly welcome you to dig deep the bushes and savannas of Tanzania.

This 5-days comfort safari will take you to most of the famous northern Tanzania National Park such as Tarangire, world famous Ngorongoro Conservation and Serengeti national park. You will be travelling through a breathtaking view of landscape including Great Rift valley with Lake Manyara view, the everlasting Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro highland and its crater.

Day 1: Moshi to Tarangire Park

After breakfast, your drive will be at your hotel ready to take an approximate 2-hour drive to Tarangire National Park. Giant baobab trees, bush savannah and the seasonal marshes add to the wonder of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is considered as one of the best places to view elephants up close. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted. From the open roof of the safari vehicle you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the evening you reach your lodge inside the park.

  • Accommodation: Marera Lodge
  • Meals: Lunch & Dinner.

Day 2: Tarangire to Serengeti Park

After breakfast, you will travel via the cooler highlands towards the southern Serengeti and at midday you will reach the plains of the Serengeti National Park. This park is the largest in Tanzania and has a diversity of habitats and landscapes – short grass plains, savannah, thick bush, swamps, and lakes. Bizarre rock formations called kopjes dot the grassy landscape where predators are often seen. The Serengeti is famous for the yearly migration when hundreds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras trek to find fresh grass and water.

  • Accommodation: Embalakai Tinted Camps
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Day 3: Serengeti Full Day

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. The areas that you visit will depend upon where the migrating herds are. Predators usually follow closely behind the trekking animals and include lions, leopards (in the acacia trees) and cheetahs. During the short rainy season in November and December the herds move from the hills in the north to the plains in the south. During the longer rainy season from April to June they return up north. As the migration is completely dependent on the yearly rainfalls, the location of the herds may vary from one year to another although, your guide will know where to locate the animals and where to see them best.

  • Accommodation: Embalakai Tinted Camp
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Day 4: Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater

On your outward journey to the park gate, you will enjoy some more game viewing before you leave the Serengeti National Park in the early afternoon to continue your journey to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. On the way you will see the very native Maasai tribe with their pure traditional life. You will overnight at lodge located on the ridge of Ngorongoro rim.

  • Accommodation: Rhino Lodge
  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater to Moshi

After breakfast you will descend the crater 600m down the crater for a game. The massive collapsed volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the Big Five – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino, and leopard – to spotted hyenas, rare warthogs, and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic for lunch at hippo pool, you will leave the caldera in the late afternoon and then you will leave the crater and drive to Arusha town.
