6 Days – Northern Lodge Safari

This 6-day Lodge safari to the Serengeti National Park allows you to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. The Serengeti is one of the world’s most recognized locations, so it’s no wonder that it’s one of Tanzania’s most popular attractions. The park is home to the dramatic Great Migration, in which millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles must cross the Mara River. It has been the subject of numerous wildlife films.

Full Itinerary

Day 1: Moshi – Lake Manyara National Park +

Pick up from Moshi/Arusha in the morning and drive to Lake Manyara National Park, which is noted for its enormous 220km2 lake, the shoreline of which are often obscured by a pink carpet of flamingos. You will stop for a picnic luncheon on the route and then go on an afternoon wildlife drive, where you may view Lake Manyara’s famed tree-climbing lions, which are rarely seen in any other national park! You will have supper and sleep at your Lake Manyara resort.

Day 2: Manyara – Serengeti National Park +

Early morning breakfast and a brief morning game drive before heading to the Serengeti National Park for an afternoon wildlife drive (lunchbox supplied). This afternoon, you will go on a wildlife drive in the central Seronera area, which is ideal for spotting lion prides and other big cats. Following your game drive, you will return to your National Park hotel for dinner before retiring for the night.

Day 3: Serengeti National Park Full Day +

A full day wildlife drive in Serengeti National Park will allow you to explore this huge grassland. After your wildlife drive, have a picnic luncheon before returning to your accommodation for dinner and another night in the bush.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park- Ngorongoro Conservation Area +

Rise early to catch the wildlife while they are still active before the day becomes too hot and they go to rest (dawn game drive). Explore the hippo pools and look for crocodiles sunning as the sun rises. Return to your hotel for brunch, pack your belongings, and then travel to Ngorongoro while watching more animals along the route. Expect to see zebra and perhaps an elephant strolling around camp. You’ll undoubtedly be tired by the end of the day!

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater Tour – Tarangire National Park +

After a great breakfast at your lodge, descend into the iconic Ngorongoro crater to observe some of Tanzania’s less common animals, including the black rhino. You will have a morning game drive on the crater’s vast grassy plains, pausing for a picnic lunch at Ngoitoktok hippo springs before continuing your journey to Tarangire National Park, where you will experience a game drive on your way to your lodge.

Day 6: Tarangire – Arusha/Moshi +

Your final morning on safari will be spent in this area known for enormous herds of elephants and massive baobab trees dotting the landscape. Before heading for Arusha/Moshi (arrive 5-6pm), stop for lunch at the picturesque picnic location overlooking the Tarangire River.

General Safari Information

Your safari guide:

Our safari guides are all well experienced in the field and passionate about showing you the amazing wildlife and culture Tanzania has to offer. All are fluent in English, and if you have a special language request just let us know as many will also have an additional language (e.g. French, Spanish, German). They are also well trained in 4×4 driving so will be able to get you anywhere on the varying road qualities we have here! Please feel free to ask your guide any questions you may have about the wildlife, culture or trip along the way.

Your meals and drinks:

All meals will be provided by the lodges you are staying at, if you are leaving on a game drive during the day then a lunch box will be provided. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at most lodges. We will provide mineral water in the car each day.


4×4 Safari Landcruiser with 7 seats. Our safari vehicles have been specifically modified for wildlife viewing, with a pop top roof which will be open during all game drives and sliding windows. We carry at least one pair of binoculars in each vehicle. Please note our regular vehicles do not have air conditioning or refrigerator. If you would like us to arrange one of our upgraded vehicles with these facilities please just ask us to provide a quote.
Although we do everything within our powers to ensure your maximum comfort, the roads in Tanzania can vary greatly in quality from newly tarmacced to completely rough and muddy or dusty (depending on rainy or dry season!). Driving times can be long, even to cover what may seem like relatively short distances. Although we regularly maintain our vehicles (with a check-up in the garage after every safari) they can and do sometimes pop a tyre or breakdown. Our guides are well trained with lots of experience in car mechanics and 98% of the time can fix the issue themselves- and you’ll be off spotting zebras again in less than 20 minutes! Please be patient if your car encounters a mechanical issue.


A great area of confusion and unease for many tourists, tipping is a generally expected and highly appreciated (although not compulsory) part of your safari tour. It is a great way of saying ‘thank you’ to those that have helped you to have a wonderful experience here. Tips should be given at the end of your safari when saying your goodbyes. If you are part of a group safari it is best to try to discuss with everyone beforehand how you wish to do the tipping. To help you feel at ease we have provided a general guide below but please remember that tipping is a way of you showing your gratitude for your safari staff and is up to you! The guidelines given below are for a group amount, not individually.
Guide: 20-25 USD/ day
