Day 1: Arrival in Arusha
On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will be met by your driver/guide and escorted to the charming Arusha Mountain Village - Serena, which stands on the shores of Lake Duluti with views of Mount Meru. Dinner at the lodge.
Overnight at Lake Duluti Serena Lodge on bed and breakfast basis.

Days 2 & 3: Tarangire National Park
After breakfast on Day 2, drive to Tarangire National Park in time for lunch at Kikoti Camp where you will spend the next two nights. Kikoti, in the Maasai language, means "the place where life began", and is the name given by the local Maasai to an ancient pre-Jurassic kopje in the Tarangire eco-system, which lies adjacent to the camp. A luxury tented camp, Kikoti echoes the luxury of the traditional safari camps of a bygone era, defined by superior service and campfire hospitality rather than modern conveniences and an anonymous welcome. Kikoti's proximity to Tarangire National Park also allows the guests to enjoy a wide choice of exploratory game-drives through the classic African savannah and acacia parkland of this undiscovered wilderness.
Moreover, its position in the migratory corridor just outside the park provides a range of activities that are forbidden elsewhere in the game lands of Northern Tanzania. These include; nature walks, foot safaris and extended bush trekking with rangers, all of which offer unique opportunities to revisit nature in her primeval state.  After lunch enjoy a game drive in Tarangire before arriving back in camp in time for sundowners and dinner.
On Day 3, Spend a full day on safari in Tarangire National Park with morning and afternoon game drives. 
Overnights at Kikoti Camp on full board basis.

Day 4: Lake Manyara
After breakfast drive to Lake Manyara National Park arriving at Kirurumu Tented Lodge in time for lunch. Kirurumu Tented Lodge is set high on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, enjoying a marvellous, panoramic view eastward over Lake Manyara, the Rift floor and Mt. Losimingori. Lying in a shallow depression at the base of the western wall of the eastern arm of the Rift Valley, Lake Manyara typically shimmers in a lilac and gold heat haze, sometimes streaked pink with thousands of flamingos.
After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive in the park.
Overnight at Kirurumu Tented Camp on full board basis.

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast, drive to the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area and ascend the edge of the crater. On the rim of the crater is the Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge, where you will have the afternoon at leisure and dinner. Should you wish, you can take a nature walk in the grounds or on the crater rim. 
Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge on full board basis.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast descend into the crater for a half day tour. An utterly unique biosphere, it harbours grasslands, swamps, forests, saltpans, a fresh water lake and a glorious variety of birdlife, all enclosed within its towering walls. Due to its high concentration of wildlife, close-range viewing opportunities and striking scenery it is also Tanzania's most visited destination.
Return to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon either take a guided nature walk or enjoy views of the crater from your private stone-built veranda.
Overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge on full board basis.
