The Vintage North offers you an opportunity to explore some of the oldest and most visited national parks in northern Tanzania on a 9 nights / 10 days safari. To start you off, this safari plan takes you to the relatively small Arusha National Park that is set to mentally prepare you for a game viewing adventure that lays ahead. It then takes you to Tarangire National Park, famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees before you head further north for 2 days at Lake Eyasi and get to explore real life encounters with one of the last true indigenous ethnic group of Africa surviving exclusively based on the traditional means of foraging residing by the seasonal shallow salt lake that lies at the base of the Serengeti Plateau. To top it off, you will embark on a 3-day game viewing adventure at Serengeti National Park. This famous world-renowned natural landscape plays host to the great wildebeest migration which habitually drags along hordes of wildebeest and Zebra in the company of other smaller herbivores like gazelle and impala.
On arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport you will be met by your driver guide who will transfer you to Arusha for your overnight.
After an early breakfast the following morning your guide will pick you up from your hotel for a full day game drive at Arusha national park. Undoubtedly the smallest national parks in Tanzania with close proximity to the city center of Arusha, this park is the perfect place to visit for those looking to enjoy a day trip. Often worried about its small size, most visitors to the park expect not to experience much but contrary to this belief the park dazzles with its perfect mix of wildlife and vegetation. On a visit to the park one may expect to see a variety of wildlife that includes ungulates, primates, the occasional carnivore and a rich diversity of resident and migratory bird species. Additionally, the park is a landscape marvel , ranging from open savannah through acacia scrub land to rainforest and eventually alpine conditions in the higher reaches of Mount Meru. Game viewing can be done in 3 ways here. You can choose to cruise around in a 4x4 vehicle or get personal with nature on walking or canoeing safaris offered at an extra cost.
