Day 1 - Arusha
On arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport you will be met and transferred to your lodge where the rest of the day is yours to relax and enjoy your surroundings. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool to enjoy or head into town which is about a 10 minute walk away. 

A charming boutique hotel within walking distance of Arusha town centre.   The 29 guest rooms are individually decorated using African materials and local art. 

Overnight at African Tulip Hotel

Day 2 - Tarangire National Park
After breakfast travel to beautiful Tarangire National Park. Stop off for lunch before a thrilling afternoon game drive in the Park in search of elephant, rhino, zebra, wildebeest and more. Be sure to photograph the strange Baobab Trees, before returning to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. 

Built to blend in with the vastness of its surroundings, Tarangire Sopa Lodge lies hidden among the kopjes, ancient baobab and grasses of the park. Numerous elephants can often be seen around the lodge, allowing visitors a close encounter. The comfortable rooms are housed in buildings with conical roofs and there is an outdoor pool to cool off in on those hot afternoons.   

Overnight at Tarangire Sopa Lodge.

Day 3 - Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater
After a morning game drive in Tarangire, head for Lake Manyara with many great views along the way. Enter the park for an afternoon game drive, stopping midway for a picnic lunch. Lake Manyara National Park lies beneath a spectacular 600 meter high escarpment and is home to hippo, flamingo, baboon and the elusive tree climbing lion. Afterwards, continue to the Ngorongoro Crater, where you may be in time to watch the spectacular sunset before dinner.

Facing the often magnificent sunsets to the west, Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is located 2,375 metres up on the eastern rim of the crater and enjoys unparalleled views across this enormous caldera. The rooms are themed around traditional circular houses with conical roofs and decorated with rich woodcarvings and sculptures. 

Overnight at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.

Day 4 - Ngorongoro Crater
This morning drive down into the Crater with a picnic lunch for a full day game drive. With one of the highest densities of lion in Africa, you have an excellent chance of seeing the 'king of cats' along with black rhino, hippo, zebra and lots more. This is all set against the back drop of the stunning scenery that makes this one of the seven natural wonders of the world, as well as one of the best game viewing areas in Africa.

Overnight at Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge.
