7-Day Safari: Tanzania’s Best Parks

Daily Private Safari Tour

4 Unforgettable Parks

Departs from / returns to Arusha. We’ll pick you up from your hotel, residence or the airport in your own private 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.

A full week of safari excitement to the most famous parks in the world. Explore the renowned Serengeti – with its limitless wildebeests and prides of lions. We’ll descend into the blue/green adventure of the Ngorongoro Crater, teeming with zebras, gazelles, cheetahs, and even flamingoes. Lake Manyara will enchant with its gorgeous landscapes and tree-climbing lions. And Tarangire will unfold its many surprises of big cats, grazers, and the largest density of elephants in the world. Come join us for 7 days of natural beauty and wild animal encounters.

Enjoy this amazing safari in a customized pop-up roof Natural World 4×4 Safari Jeep that includes: Cooler Box, long-range high-frequency radio, Power Outlets AC 230V, First Aid Kit, and above all, a professional multi-lingual safari guide who will ensure you have an unforgettable safari experience.

Your African safari adventure begins in Arusha where you’ll hop aboard your private 4 x 4 Jeep for the trip to Lake Manyara National Park, a stunning jewel of verdant forest, grassy floodplain, and of course, the lake itself. Along the way, you’ll be delighted by the many troops of baboon, plus blue monkeys, wildebeest, and zebra. We’ll keep a special eye out for the park’s unique tree-climbing lions. And you can’t miss the many, (sometimes thousands) of eye-catching pink flamingoes adorning the lake’s shoreline.

The names of certain places immediately bring to mind thoughts of adventure – Serengeti is such a destination. Tanzania’s largest reserve, Serengeti National Park is also the country’s oldest, and its “endless plains” are home to literally millions of wildlife. This is the spot where the world’s Great Migration of wildebeests and zebras begins its timeless trek. Here too, you’ll find the greatest number of lions on the continent. The Serengeti is an immense world of hunters, grazers, and over 500 species of birds. The park is almost overpowering with its vast horizons of nature’s wonders.

Next, we’ll make a brief stop at the cradle of mankind – the world’s most recognized anthropological site, Oldupai Gorge. The ravine here has brought forth ancient remnants of early man.

Arriving at the crest of the planet’s largest intact volcanic crater is a defining moment for many safari-goers. Staring across the richly hued expanse of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and its vast caldera, echoes the promise of a different kind of adventure. Indeed, descending the crater walls into the heart of this special place you’ll find the greatest density of lions in Africa. Expect anything in this unique world – elephants, buffalos, gazelles… even endangered black rhinos and bright pink flamingoes!

Our final park often sits in the shadows of the above reserves but it’s a rewarding safari destination on its own – Tarangire National Park boasts the largest concentration of elephants in the world! Along with great numbers of lions, leopards, and cheetahs, this unexpected park is set to amaze.

For a full week, we will show you the best of Tanzania’s amazing parklands and great displays of wild game. Just let Natural World Kenya Safaris know your thoughts and dreams for this perfect safari and we will make it happen. That’s our specialty!

Day 1: Arusha – Lake Manyara (250 km: 2.5 hrs)

07:30 Your driver/guide will pick you up from your Arusha area hotel, airport, or Arusha area residence.

Hop into your private 4 x 4 safari Jeep and we’re off to Lake Manyara National Park.

Our drive is through the scenic Maasai country, offering distinct climates and vegetation.

We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch in this compact but very pretty park.

You can’t miss the flocks of pink flamingoes lining Lake Manyara but we’ll look a little harder to see if we can spot the park’s distinctive tree-climbing lions.

Our game drive will pursue impala, warthog, elephant, giraffe and we’ll be on the lookout for the park’s many baboons.

Besides flamingoes, the park offers other birdlife such as pelicans, egrets, and spoonbills.

We’ll also enjoy an evening drive, out of the park and up the towering escarpment for wonderful views.

We’ll enjoy dinner and the evening at our lodge or tented camp in Manyara.

LAKE MANYARA – SERENGETI (215 kms, Appx. 4 hrs)

With the first rays of the sun and the early birdsong, we’ll be up to welcome our second safari day. We’ll also enjoy our first safari breakfast before heading out to the great Serengeti.

Along our route, we’ll break up the drive with a relaxing picnic lunch.

Then we will arrive at the famous Serengeti – the almost treeless plains with its vast expanse of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, impala, thousands of lions, and leopards.

Look here as well for the over 50,000 buffalo, dotting the immense grasslands.

We’ll spend the first of two nights at your Serengeti lodge or tented camp.

Entire Day at Serengeti

As you enjoy your game drives throughout the day, you’ll soon appreciate how the Serengeti has come to be called one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of Africa”, with its millions of predators and grazers, roaming under a canopy of 500 bird species.

Even the name Serengeti comes from the Maasai phrase “siringet”, meaning “endless plains”, a testament to this immense world of wildlife discovered throughout our time here.

We’ll break up the day with a hearty lunch to fortify ourselves for the active game drives over these great plains. The balance of the day will bring us tracking more wildlife like monkey, baboon, wild dog, and honey badger.

In the park’s forest areas, look for hippo and even crocodile in its meandering rivers.

This will be our second night at the park.


There is nothing like awakening to the dawning colours of the sun breaking over the African plains. Perhaps we’ll do some early morning exploring before pausing for a safari breakfast.

Then it’s time to jump into our 4 x 4 Jeep and set out for the Ngorongoro Crater.

On the way, we’ll pause at one of the most unique spots on the planet – Oldupai Gorge where significant artifacts of early man were discovered. The site is a trove of insights into our ancestors dating back hundreds of thousands of years.

Then we’ll drive up to the crest of the extinct volcanic crater that is Ngorongoro. The planet’s largest intact caldera, it hosts its own world of big cats, elephants, gazelles, zebras – over 25,000 animals in a self-contained valley-like plain at the core of the extinct volcano.

This is where we will spend our next day exploring.

In addition to the wonderful views here, you can also take an optional visit to a nearby Maasai boma. This is a local destination of indigenous Maasai villagers, where for a small fee you can learn about their culture and their traditions.

We will spend the night at your Ngorongoro lodge or tended camp.

Full Day at the Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, we’ll get into the 4 x 4 and head down the crater wall into the heart of the caldera. This is a green world of grasslands, marshes, and acacia forest boasting the highest density of predators on the continent.

But in addition to lions and leopards, you can find endangered black rhinos in this marvelous eco-system and even pink flamingoes!

Amidst this wildlife splendor, we’ll stop and refresh with a picnic lunch before continuing with more drives looking for everything from golden jackals to hippos.

Come late afternoon, we’ll ascend back up the crater wall after a full day of animal spotting.

We’ll return to our accommodation for dinner and to spend the night.

Ngorongoro – Tarangire (460km.  Appx. 6 – 7 hrs.)

Let’s enjoy breakfast with the light breaking over this fascinating volcanic landscape before we embark to Tarangire National Park.

We’ll make a lunch stop along the way and arrive around midday.

Elephants may well be Tarangire’s calling card – over 3,000 of these majestic creatures roam this compact but vibrant park. But sightings of lions are not uncommon.

Another distinctive attraction of the reserve is the great stands of baobab trees that populate its savannahs. These distinctive trees with their fat trunks and short branches are picturesque sentinels seemingly guarding these ancient plains.

We’ll spend the evening at our Tarangire lodge or tented camp.

Tarangire – Arusha (460 km Appx. 6-7 hrs.)

Our final safari breakfast and now it’s time once again to climb into our 4 x 4 and hit the road.

We’ll break up our drive back with a lunch stop at a comfortable restaurant and perhaps share thoughts about our safari week

We will bring you to your hotel, residence, or the airport.

A full week of game drives, of discovering Tanzania’s beautiful parks, of cultural encounters, and soaking up nature’s mysteries and excitement.

We at Natural World Kenya Safaris, want to thank you for the trust you’ve placed in us and our expertise. Please stay in touch and let us know when you are ready for your next African safari adventure.
