DAY 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Drive from Arusha to Tarangire National Park covers 2,600 square kilometers and is on the traditional migration route of several species of the wildlife. At dry times, the concentration of animals in Tarangire rivals that of the much better known Serengeti. Herds of migratory wildebeest, gazelle, zebra and buffalo gather along the marshy shores of Lake Natron. These pools are shared by flocks of birds: green wood hoopoes, fisher lovebirds, tallish herons, white bellied go-away birds and giant kingfishers. Resident lion, giraffe, elephant, and black rhino are common at any season; Tarangire is noted for its baobab trees and splendid vistas of rolling savannah and acacia woodland. The strange-looking, centuries-old baobab trees are believed by the Maasai to be the first tree in creation.
Dinner and overnight at Panorama camp.

The Serengeti National Park is the second largest park in Tanzania and is about the same size as Hawaii. The whole day is devoted to you to observe the wildlife in the Serengeti National Park.

After lunch at a picnic place you will slowly drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater.
