On arrival in Nairobi connect with your flight to Kilimanjaro Airport near Arusha. On arrival drive 160 km to Tarangire National Park. After lunch take a game drive through this stunning wilderness area. Tarangire National Park has a large population of elephants, and its sparse vegetation is strewn with baobab and acacia trees.

Day 3 Wednesday - Serengeti

Drive 350 km to the Serengeti Sopa Lodge; this long distance is more than compensated for by the views of the changing landscapes dotted with game. The Serengeti Sopa Lodge sits on the edge of the Nyarboro Escarpment overlooking the south-western Serengeti plains. The lodge is decorated with rich earthy tones reflecting the colours of the surrounding landscape. The guest rooms are furnished with local fabrics and feature a verandah with 2 comfortable chairs and coffee table facing the vast Serengeti plains which extend as far as the eye can see. There is time for a game drive in the afternoon. (b,l,d)

  • Overnight Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Day 4 Thursday - Serengeti

Enjoy an early morning balloon flight* followed by a 'bubbly' bush breakfast (optional extra), or an early morning game drive followed by breakfast at the lodge. The Serengeti's far-reaching plains of endless grass, tinged with the twisted shadows of acacia trees, have made it the quintessential image of a wild and untarnished Africa. There is plenty of free time to relax at the lodge and enjoy the facilities or take a dip in the swimming pool before your late afternoon game drive. (b,l,d)

  • Overnight Serengeti Sopa Lodge

Day 5 Friday - Ngorongoro

After an early morning game drive travel 200 km to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, stopping for a brief visit at the Olduvai Gorge en route. Olduvai Gorge is often referred to as 'The Cradle of Mankind' and is one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world. Continue on to the Ngorongoro Crater and check in to Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. This lodge is an architectural marvel perched on the rim of the collapsed volcano. It features 91 spacious guest rooms, each with a glass fronted verandah. The lodge has a swimming pool and a large deck where you can take in the magnificent views of the crater floor and the majestic African sunset. (b,l,d)
