Day by day detailed itinerary for 6 days best of Tanzania safari
DAY 01: ARRIVAL IN ARUSHA
Upon your arrival, you will be picked up from Kilimanjaro International Airport. Your professional guide will answer all your queries regarding your upcoming safari and provide you with a short briefing as well. Afterward, you will be taken to your accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay.
DAY 02: TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
Following an early morning breakfast at your accommodation, you leave Arusha for Tarangire National Park. This park covering approximately 2600 square kilometers is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of the Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, eland, and oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains when they migrate again to good grazing areas. Expect to encounter large herds of elephants while here that are accustomed to vehicles. You will enjoy your lunch at the park and later have an evening game drive before heading to your accommodation for dinner and an overnight stay.

For your days three and four, after breakfast you will depart for Serengeti National Park with a picnic lunch in hand. You will enjoy a game drive en-route. The Serengeti is famed for its incredible wildlife, stunning views, and the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras. In this frenzied bout of territorial conquests and mating, witness an actual survival of the fittest as these animals plunge through crocodile-infested waters. The wildebeest will birth more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 km (600 miles) pilgrimage begins again. While here you will spot the big game much easier than you can imagine.
