We will pack your hot lunch before heading to our first destination – Tarangire National Park.

This charming quiet park is a hidden jewel, especially when you like to experience an authentic safari in northern Tanzania. Its unique landscape, dotted with thousands of baobabs is spectacular.

The Tarangire Ecosystem is defined by the long-distance migration of wildebeest and zebras. Thousands of animals concentrate in Tarangire National Park during the dry season from the surrounding wet-season dispersal and calving areas.

Elephants are the undisputed stars in Tarangire. During the dry season, this park has one of the largest concentrations of elephants in the world.

In the afternoon you will have your hot lunch served with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
Later in the late afternoon drive to the lodge for your dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Ngorongoro Crater - Serengeti Park

Early breakfast at Ngorongoro Farm House, and start to drive to Ngorongoro Conservation area.

After gate formalities straight descend to the crater floor for the full day crater tour.
Here you will first start to appreciate the majesty of one of the largest intact caldera in the world and one of the most spectacular sights in the whole of Africa.

If it will be your lucky day, you will have a chance to spot all of the big 5 including rhinos, lions, Leopards, Buffalo, and Elephants, which live in this wonderful caldera alongside zebras and hippos, wildebeest, hyenas, and many more.

View spectacular birds including flamingos on the Soda Lake, geese, storks, and vultures.

In the afternoon, enjoy your lunch served with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate at the picnic site called Ngoitoktok swamp while facing the hippo pool, before you continue the safari while ascending the crater.

After an exciting day in the crater, you will continue to drive towards the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see.

Arrive in the evening at the lodge for your dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4 & 5 : Northern Serengeti - Crossing

Enjoy a full day of game viewing in Serengeti, with morning and afternoon game drives while driving towards the Northern part seeking the Epic Migration of Wildebeests herds which will be approaching the great Mara River crossing to Maasai Mara game reserve – Kenya.

Serengeti National Park is named among the natural wonders of Africa due to its uniqueness of being the only place in the world honored to host the largest and longest migration of over 1.5 million wildebeests to the Maasai Mara plains in Kenya, while pursued by hungry predators, which makes the struggle of life and death.

With endless plains, spectacular sunsets, infinite views, and millions of wildebeest thundering across the savannah, with one of the largest concentrations of game on the continent and a fascinating variety of landscapes, it’s no wonder the Serengeti is Africa’s most famous park.

Hot lunch to be served at the afternoon with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
Later continue with late afternoon game drive in the vast plains of Serengeti national park until sunset

Day 6: Northern Serengeti

We will go out again today for a full day game drive along Mara River with one aim of expecting to witness the great Migration crossing.

The dramatic river crossings are exhilarating to watch, but patience is needed to witness this spectacle first-hand. Wildebeest can take hours, to full days to cross the Mara and Sand River from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara in Kenya. The herd eagerly waits for one of their comrades to take the first step – literally.

However, it is quite a scary prospect going first, there are predators to watch out for, with crocodiles in the river and lions and other big cats waiting on the other side of the river to pick off the weakest of the herd.

There is the muddy riverbed to navigate, making sure they don’t get stuck and some sides of the ravine turn out to be too steep to climb up — forcing the herd back across the treacherous river to start the exercise all over again! In the end, one brave wildebeest takes their first step or rather jumps into the river, causing a cascading movement of the whole herd — one following the other in a simultaneous effect — a definite must-see event.

Day 7: Balloon Ride - Central Serengeti

Wake up in the early morning and join a group of people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti plains for a sunrise game drive while floating silently above the awakening bush, spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and vast plains of Serengeti.

Leisure breakfast and glass of champagne to celebrate after successful Balloon ride.

Gently continue to drive heading to the central area – Seronera while doing a game drive en-route.

The Seronera River enjoys year-round water flow, so there is always something of interest to observe. Expect to reveal lions in sizeable pride, hippo, or herds of elephants, whose populations in the park have risen in recent times.

Arrive at the lodge in the evening for your dinner and overnight.


Day 8: Fly Out - Kilimanjaro Airport

Leisure breakfast at Kubukubu Lodge, depart around 09:00hrs and gently drive to Seronera Airstrip to catch you small flight (Auric Air) departing at 11:25hrs to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport where you connect your International flight going back home or to the next destination – flight time to be advised

Once in a lifetime experience Tanzania was a fantastic experience. We had an amazing time at all and were well taken care of by Norbert and his team even going the extra mile to assist us with our onward travels. He was very professional and kind and made the whole holiday stress free and wonderful. I would 100% recommend. Special thanks to Gabby as well for making sure we were safe and saw all the animals.

Stepping into the savanna at Tarangire. The whole day at Tarangire, which is famous for its elephants and baobabs, was fantastic. It s hard to say what I liked best! It started early and as we drove from Arusha to Tarangire, I was able to ask Norbert, Ibasea and Philippe questions about Tanzania, their childhood and education and their lives today. As we got closer to the park, it was interesting to note how present in the region the Masai tribe is. We arrived early and until lunchtime hardly saw another car. Being so close to the animals, especially the elephants and the monkeys, but also the zebras, the impalas and the giraffes was an amazing experience. I also very much enjoyed listening to Philippe who shared his in-depth knowledge of the park, its animals, its trees and plants. Driving through the park was an amazing experience, vast expanses of land before us and in the horizon blue mountains. We stopped for lunch and out of the hamper came out the most delicious fish curry I d eaten in all the five weeks I’d been in Tanzania. Along with it came rice and tasty vegetables, wine and beer and fresh fruit. I can testify that out of the fifteen or twenty tables around us we had the most refined lunch! After lunch, we drove on and spotted a leopard, lazily sleeping under a tree. Finally we stopped near an ancient baobab, wide and beautiful, imposing and welcoming. We stepped into its insides and looking up I could not help to think of a cathedral. More beautiful. Majestic and ancient. The day ended towards the end of the afternoon and a week on I’m still processing the experience. It was a wonderful day and I look forward to exploring another park with Norbert s team in the future.
Once in a lifetime experience 🙂 We had an amazing time with Norbert safaris and can happily recommend the experience! Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater were breathtakingly beautiful and we got to see many animals (elephants, lions, giraffes, buffalos, hippos, zebras and many more!). Before, during and even days after the safari, Norbert was very attentive and caring. He is a lovely person and very professional. Because there weren't enough tourists for the tour dates we wanted to do, he arranged for us to go with a different tour operator. The evening before, he invited us to a wonderful meal and made us feel very comfortable. Thank you for this amazing experience! Asante sana 🙂

An amazing adventure with the animals I went on Norbert’s safaris with my wife and three children with the youngest just graduating from high school. We went for 7 days at the end of June 2022. The trip was amazing. We went to Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro crater and did a one day hike up the first leg of Mt Kilimanjaro where you go through a lush, mossy rain forest. We were in a land cruiser and saw so many animals up close. We saw a lot of lions in fact we saw two male lions in a tree and were no more than 20 feet away! We had one lion bump up against the vehicle. We also had a cheetah come very close to the car and got some great pics of him. Lots of hippos, zebras, elephants, giraffes, and many other animals. Even saw some crocs, rhinos, and two puff adders on the road. And yes, you are safe from the animals at all times. The driver made the trip so interesting. He answered all of our questions (we had a lot!) and knew all about the animals, the history, and the culture. He catered the trip to our needs and was fabulous at making special stops for us, getting us close to the animals, and showing much respect for the animals. He was like a family member. Most of the roads are not paved to keep the environment natural and not disturb the animals. So the safari will be bumpy, but the hotel accommodations make up for it. The people and service was off the charts. The food is very tasty and very similar to a Indian food. Not hot, but tasty with its spices. Lots of good tasting fruit. Best pineapple I ever had anywhere. In general, Tanzanians are wonderful people. They are very polite and kind. Even strangers are friendly and treat you so well. All the people have a great attitude and the place is very safe. My wife and daughter felt safe the entire time in Tanzania. No worries. It’s the best kept secret. So many travelers and tour people say that if you go on a safari, go to Tanzania because it is the best place to see the most animals and be with the nicest people. Being with Norbert safaris makes it that much better. Norbert and his team are really patient and good communicators. We planned trip for 2020, but had to delay it for two years due to Covid. Norbert communicated with me the whole time and even helped with accommodations separate from the safari and with the visa process. Definitely went above and beyond in helping. It’s not just a business, they really take good care of you start to finish. I highly recommend Norbert’s safari and even hope to bring other family members in the future. It was an unforgettable experience

Unique moments Norbert Safaris & Adventures offers an excellent service. The team assisted me in all the necessary organization when it came to transport and lodging and is very helpful and kind. The Safari itself was marvelous. We had luck with the weather and saw almost all of the big five in two days in Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Park. But travelers should also keep in mind that animal watching is also a matter of luck and that it cannot be guaranteed by the team to see all the animals they want.
All in all, I spent a great time with Norbert Safaris & Adventures. I recommend to book a tour with them.
One day Tarangire Trip Perfect organized. Very experienced Guide, who knew many details about all the animals. Great food! Would always go again with this agency.
Awesome 🤩 We enjoyed our day trip in general, the service and communication between us and Norbert’s officers was real good. There were on time, serving delicious lunch 😋 also brief from guide was good 👍 He bring us to our expectations about day trip in mountain Kilimanjaro.
We are looking forward to come back to visit other parks in future 😍😍😍

Best Safari Ever! My mom and I traveled and did a 7 day safari with Norbert Safaris. Everything was amazing. Even after the safari was over they made sure we landed in Zanzibar ok and helped us with questions with covid testing to get back into the US. The safari itself was amazing our guide, Gabriel, was super knowledgeable about animals and managed to show us every animal on our list including a black rhino! Norbert stayed in contact with us the whole time even though he had a family emergency he still made sure to check in and see how things are going through the safari. They even provided us a reusable coffee cup and water bottle so we can reduce waste and stay hydrated and caffeinated throughout the safari. All the lodges and tented camp were beautiful and luxurious. My recommendation to any travelers is to pack in layers because the mornings can be chilly and then it heats up through the day. I also would recommend wearing comfortable closed toe shoes that are easy to take on and off because you are not going to be doing a lot of hiking but you will want to take them off in the Range Rover so you can stand in the seats to look at animals. The food was always good and they even would set up the picnic with a table cloth so we always felt like we were dinning luxuriously. They went the extra mile with ever detail and I had amazing time and would highly recommend Norbert Safaris.

Эмоции и воспоминания на всю жизнь! В последний день года)) решили подняться в базовый лагерь Килиманджаро - высота 2,8 км, длина маршрута - 8 км. Это не забываемые эмоции с одной стороны и достойная проверка себя с другой! Ребята портеры очень приветливые, воспитанные, профессиональные и с исключительным чувством юмора👍 задумались о полноценном восхождении и если все таки решимся - это будет только с ними💪
