Luxury Safaris.

Group Size

6 People



Guest taking this tour will be able to explore five of our most popular national parks of the northern circuit of Tanzania, and mixing it with culture and walking safari in the heart of Serengeti national park. From our experience, this tour will be slow with no rush, with a great opportunity of staying on sighting long looking for action. And most of the camps are located very close to the game viewing areas and walking safari.

7Days /6 Night

Day 1: Arusha National Park

Drive to Arusha national park for a half-day game drive. This highly underrated park is predominantly inhabited by forest animals, while in the other northern park, savannah animals are more prevalent. This is the best place in northern Tanzania to spot black and white colobus monkeys and bush back and to photograph larger spices with Mt Kilimanjaro and Meru in the background. You will drive back to Rivertrees Country Inn for hot lunch.

After lunch drives west on good tarmac road, across the gently rolling Maasai plains with scattered acacia trees, En route you pass many Maasai villages, and Maasai in their colorfully traditional dress walking on the roadside, riding bicycles, herding their cattle’s and driving their overloaded donkeys. You will gate to Mpingo Ridge tented camp in time for shower and sundowner with the sun kissing the rift valley escarpment. Dinner and overnight Mpingo tented camp.

Day 2: Tarangire National park

After an early breakfast, you will explore Tarangire national park on a full day of game viewing. We recommend that you take lunch with you and spend the whole day in the park since if you break the day into morning and afternoon you will spend a lot of time driving to the camp and you might miss that action of an elephant breaking trees or drinking water. The park has a great sighting of Elephants, lions, leopards, and Impalas, the best time for Tarangire is July to October This is because from December to May Wildebeest and Zebra leave the park in search of good grazing areas. Dinner and overnight Mpingo ridge tented camp.
