  1. The Serengeti is a long way from Arusha.
    It is usual to spend the first day of your safari in either Lake Manyara or Tarangire National Park, as these parks are roughly halfway between Arusha and the Serengeti.
    While it is technically possible to reach the Serengeti directly from Arusha, it’s a long and uneventful day that we don’t recommend.
    This leaves you four options:

    • Travel from Lake Manyara/Tarangire/Karatu: The most common option lets you see either Lake Manyara or Tarangire and overnighting in the area. You’ll then set off after breakfast and arrive on the Serengeti by mid-afternoon.
    • Travel from Lake Natron: If you’re visiting the volcanic region around Lake Natron, you can enter the Serengeti in the North. This is a popular option from July – September when the Migration is in the North.
    • Travel from the Maasai Mara: if you’re combining Kenya and Tanzania into one safari, you can either drive or fly from the Maasai Mara. The drive is a long and uneventful 10 hour affair, so flights are recommended.
    • Fly from Arusha or Zanzibar: A number of Tanzanian carriers have daily flights in and out of the Serengeti. These flights land at multiple airstrips across the park.

    The usual route is to drive north from Arusha, overnight near Tarangire or Lake Manyara, drive to the Serengeti, and then return via Ngorongoro.
