Tanzania Classic North

Travel through northern Tanzania’s iconic national parks, home to some of Africa’s best wildlife densities as well as the changing landscapes of the Great Rift Valley and the rich culture of the Maasai. 


Enjoy game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater looking for rhino, watch herds of elephant in the verdant swamps of Tarangire and explore the vast savannah plains of the Serengeti on this experience-rich safari.


2 Nights Tarangire National Park | 2 Nights Ngorongoro Crater | 3 Nights Serengeti National Park

Nights 1 - 2 Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will proceed to the Coastal Aviation desk for your light-aircraft flight to Tarangire National Park, just 20 minutes away (15 kg luggage limit per person; soft bags required for all flights on this itinerary). Your guide from Little Oliver’s will meet you here and game-drive you back to camp, where you can settle in and enjoy some lunch. Relax during the heat of the day before  afternoon tea is served, and then go out on an afternoon game drive to explore this varied and wildlife-rich park. 


Set off this morning on a guided walking safari, learning to look for signs of wildlife nearby, from bird calls to tracks in the earth. You can approach smaller creatures such as warthogs, small antelope species and birdlife, all of which are less skittish when approached on foot compared to a vehicle. Return to camp for lunch and a rest during the heat of the day. After tea and cake, head out on a late-afternoon game  drive, stopping for sundowner drinks in a scenic spot. 


The adventure continues with a night game drive, seeking out nocturnal species such as mongoose and nightjars, as well as predators such as lions on the move.

Nights 3 - 4 Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Depart after a leisurely breakfast for the airstrip. From here, you will fly over Lake Manyara to the Manyara Airstrip. A guide from The Highlands will drive you through coffee plantations towards the Ngorongoro  Crater, a journey of 3 hours to reach the property, enjoying a packed lunch on the way. Stop at the viewpoint overlooking the crater to soak in the spectacular landscape and continue your drive around the rim until you reach the Olmoti Crater, where you will stay for the next two nights. 


After an early breakfast the next morning, depart with your guide for the Ngorongoro Crater, a drive of around an hour until you reach the descent road. Spend the morning game-driving on the crater floor in search of the varied wildlife that lives here. You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch during the heat of the day in a shady spot before driving back to The Highlands, where you can relax a little. 


In the late afternoon, a guide will take you to one of the nearby Maasai villages, where you can learn more about this rich culture and take part in their afternoon activities, which often include rounding up cattle into the boma for the night.

Nights 5 - 7 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Depart by road for the Manyara Airstrip, 3 hours away, where you will catch a flight to the central Serengeti, just 45 minutes away. A guide from Dunia will meet you at the airstrip and game-drive you back to camp, stopping at any wildlife sightings along the way. Settle into your tent before going on an afternoon game drive to fully explore your final national park. 


The Serengeti is impressive in terms of both the diversity and density of wildlife found here, so there is plenty to discover each day.  Return to camp in the early evening for drinks around the campfire and  dinner.


Safari activities at Dunia take place in the early morning and late afternoon, when wildlife is most active. You will explore with expert guides on game drives, looking for the big cats that have made the Serengeti famous, as well as hippos wallowing in muddy pools and giraffe browsing the fresh shoots of an acacia tree. In between. 


Enjoy a final breakfast in camp before a short drive to the airstrip for  your late-morning flight back to Kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha.
