Day by Day Plan
Day 1 - Zanzibar to Tarangire National Park
On the first day of your journey, you'll start your adventure at around 5:00 am with a hotel pickup (the exact time will depend on your hotel's location) and be transferred to Zanzibar Airport. You'll depart from Zanzibar at 8:00 am, arriving in Arusha around 9:00 am. From there, you'll be picked up at the airport and driven to Tarangire for a thrilling safari experience. Tarangire is a place where elephants leisurely roam the plains like cattle, lions roar, and zebras call out. During the dry season, Tarangire is known to have the largest elephant population in the world, making it an exceptional reason to explore Tarangire National Park. Here, you'll encounter magnificent baobab trees, termite mounds, lush grassy savannahs, and expansive swamps. Your safari in the park will continue until 5:00 pm, after which you'll head to the lodge for the night.

Day 2 - Ngorongoro Crater Visit
Your second day starts with breakfast around 6:00 am, followed by an 8-hour adventure to Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most astonishing and famous natural wonders globally, formed when a massive volcano erupted and collapsed approximately three million years ago. It's home to the highest concentration of large game in Africa, including all the members of the Big Five and numerous predators. This unique location is deservedly recognized on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and it's a must-visit. The magic of Ngorongoro begins as you peer down into the mist-shrouded, densely wooded forest from the crater's edge. From there, you'll descend into a vast plain teeming with wildlife. The crater's steep walls rise from 400 to 610 meters from the crater floor, and it covers an area of 264 square kilometers (with a diameter of 19 kilometers). The original volcano's height must have been between 4,500 and 5,800 meters.
