April Green Season – 4 nightsfrom
If you don’t have time for a long safari trip and just want a sampling of the very best of the African safari experience, this could be the trip for you. Over 5 days/4 nights, you will experience The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Arusha National Park along with opportunities to immerse in rich ancient Tanzanian culture.
April is a transitional period between the green season and the beginning of the low season in Tanzania. There is always a chance of heavy rain around this time, but mainly only light showers can be found moving around the area. The landscape is lush and green and the air a bit sweet. We feel that this is a great time to be on safari in Tanzania – the weather can be ideal, wildlife concentrations are at their highest, and there are fewer jeeps full of travelers to compete to see animals.
With vast wilderness areas that teem with big game, interesting cultures, and some of the most iconic landscapes on the planet, northern Tanzania offers a safari experience like nowhere else.
We can help plan the perfect Tanzanian safari just for you. We will tailor the experience to exactly what you want for as many days as you want. Adjustments can be made to the itinerary & pricing shown.

Day of Arrival
Arusha National Park
Situated in northeastern Tanzania, the Arusha National Park is set against the spectacular backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. This 552 square kilometre park is renowned for its other-worldly scenery and excellent choice of trekking possibilities. This beautiful area is divided into three parts: Mt. Meru, a spectacular volcanic cone; the Ngurdoto Crater, with its lost-world feel; and the multi-hued Momela Lakes. The park features a wide range of habitats that provide a home to an array of wildlife and plant species. Commonly spotted animals include Cape buffalo, giraffe, zebra, warthog, monkey, flamingo, lion and elephant.
Stay at Rivertrees, Arusha
Travellers heading for the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater will pass through the town of Karatu in the green hills of Tanzania’s northern highlands. Presided over by the towering Ol Deani Volcano, this small, colourful town serves as a popular overnight stop for visitors exploring the area’s many game parks. The town offers a variety of activities including browsing the bustling marketplace, sampling beer at a local brewery, visiting a traditional homestead, or taking a guided walk through the Ngorongoro Forest in search of waterfalls and caves. Whether you are looking for cultural tours, hiking and biking opportunities, a chance to enjoy an authentic rural Tanzania experience, or simply a break between safari game drives, this underrated town has plenty to offer.
Stay at Tloma Lodge
Day 3 & 4
The Seronera region, in the central Serengeti, is set directly on the Great Migration route and offers excellent viewing of this incredible annual phenomenon, when countless wildebeest flood the area and move across the plains. While migratory game populations fluctuate seasonally, Seronera is still a wildlife hotspot at other times of the year, sheltering the Big Five, among many other species. A number of small campsites provide accommodation and visitors can enjoy hot air balloon trips and walking safaris as well as guided game drives.
