5 Days Wildebeest Migration Safari
Embark on a journey to witness two remarkable Wonders of the World in a single itinerary. This carefully crafted expedition seamlessly weaves the captivating spectacle of the Wildebeest Migration across the grand plains of the Serengeti with the awe-inspiring majesty of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a World Heritage site.
During this five-day Wildebeest Migration safari, you’ll immerse yourself in the intricate movements of the expansive herd, all while exploring three of Tanzania’s renowned national parks. The adventure commences either in Tarangire National Park, where you’ll begin by traversing the dynamic landscapes of Africa before dedicating three days to tracking the Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti National Park. Your expedition concludes within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a testament to the remarkable natural heritage of the region.
Day 1 - Arusha to Tarangire National Park
Embark on your journey after a hearty breakfast from Arusha. A scenic two-hour drive transports you to Tarangire National Park. En route, you’ll traverse vibrant Masai villages and iconic open plains that evoke the essence of Africa. Upon entering Tarangire, an expanse of golden Savannah unfolds before you, adorned by the Tarangire River. This lifeline sustains the local wildlife throughout the year, drawing herds of elephants, zebras, and antelopes, which you’ll encounter amid acacia and Baobab trees. A riverbank picnic offers a picturesque perspective, although the local monkey community may vie for your lunch. Lions, leopards, cape buffalo, and various antelopes populate the park, with the possibility of sighting rare creatures like the Greater Kudu or Fringe-Eared Oryx. The day culminates as you retire to your lodging.
Day 2 - Tarangire to Serengeti National Park
Embark on an early start, anticipating a day brimming with exploration and adventure. Your route to the Serengeti carries you through the mystical rainforests of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, where glimpses of cape buffalo, baboons, and even elephants and leopards might grace your journey. After a delectable lunch at the Serengeti National Park picnic area, delve into the heart of the Serengeti. Behold the iconic African savannah, a canvas animated by a multitude of roaming creatures. Your day concludes with dinner and overnight rest, nestled within the Serengeti’s embrace.
Day 3 - Serengeti National Park
Embrace the dawn with an early rise for a sunrise game drive. As the sun paints the Savannah, predators seize the opportune moment to hunt amidst the gentle light and cooler temperatures. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, and the morning movement of wildebeest and zebras may grace your sight. Alternatively, consider a sunrise hot air balloon safari for a unique vantage point. A rejuvenating breakfast precedes a day of adventure, tailored to maximize wildlife encounters.
Day 4 - Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Following breakfast, embark on a route through the Serengeti, affording additional opportunities to spot elusive creatures. The landscape dances with thousands of animals—graceful giraffes, bounding antelopes, mighty elephants, and the regal lion. Lean cheetahs, elusive leopards, and foraging hyenas may also greet your gaze. The day culminates with dinner and lodging either on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater or in nearby Karatu Town.
Day 5 - Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha
Savor a final breakfast before departing for the remarkable Ngorongoro Crater, often hailed as the Eighth Wonder of the World. The vast caldera, visible from a panoramic viewpoint, reveals the area’s unparalleled natural splendor. Home to over 120 mammal species, including the famed Big Five, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area stands as a coveted safari destination. Marvel at black rhinoceros, hippopotamuses, and an array of predators within this open-top vehicle expedition. A picnic lunch beside the famed hippo pool punctuates your day, after which you return to Arusha, laden with unforgettable memories of your safari odyssey.
