This is a 5-day private camping tour accompanied by a guide/driver and the chef. This budget tour is a camping bestseller. It takes you around the famous north circuit parks. The Ngorongoro Crater is the highlighted park with its beautiful landscapes and surreal view of the crater and it is easier to see animals as it is a crater floor. The Tarangire is like a smaller Serengeti but famous for the many numbers of elephants. This tour gives you adequate time in the parks.

It provides unique chances to observe the interactions between elephant families. We will do a game drive through the park depending on where they are reported sightings of animals (mostly predators, lions, cheetah and leopards as they are harder to spot) as herbivores (giraffes, wildebeest, zebras, etc. are plenty to see through the park).
Later on, we will go to the Tarangire River picnic site and enjoy the beautiful view of the river and animals while having lunch. Small monkeys and baboons will try to scare you off your lunch but there is nothing to worry about. After lunch, proceed with the game drive and exit the park at around 4:30 pm.
