ITINERARY IDEA

Day 1

Meal Basis: Bed & Breakfast

Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania located at the foot of Mt. Meru, close to Mount Kilimanjaro, the Manyara, Tarangire and Ngorongoro National Parks. From there it’s only a short trip to the Serengeti. Just to the north, on the slopes of Mt. Meru is the Arusha National Park.

Built by the Germans as a centre of colonial administration because of the temperate climate, Arusha is a good spot to take a day or two off from your safari.

Day 2 - 3: Tarangire National Park

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

After the Serengeti, Tarangire has the greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania and in the dry season the Tarangire River is a magnet for thirsty wildlife. Large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland gather and not surprisingly the predators follow. This is also the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as oryx and gerenuk are regularly spotted. Tarangire is also known for its spectacular baobab trees, and its breathtaking views of the Masaai Steppe and the mountains to the south.

Located just a few hours drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for safaris travelling through the northern circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. The park extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife are allowed to move freely throughout.

Day 4 - 5: Ngorongoro Crater

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

The Ngorongoro Crater is game viewing gone crazy and it is not surprising that with is one of Tanzania’s major tourist drawcards. Within the crater rim a daily wildlife drama is played out as large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby lions, leopards, elephants and black rhinos. Outside of the crater a similar drama continues in a more spread out manner with Masai herdsmen thrown into the mix.

Day 6 - 9: Serengeti National Park

Meal Basis: Full Board plus Activities

The Serengeti together with Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Park form Africa’s most famous wildlife park. The image of acacia trees on an endless grass plain epitomises Africa for many, and then add a Masai warrior and some cattle to the picture and the conversation need go no further.

The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Masai Mara is the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet – with more than a million animals following the rains. But that is not where the game viewing ends; large prides of lions, elephants and giraffes in grasslands, gazelles and eland to mention but a few. Aside from traditional vehicle safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Serengeti plains has become almost essential and you can even do a horseback safari.

ABOUT TANZANIA

Tanzania is one of the unique destinations on the African continent that has yet to be discovered by many. It is a land of many wonders, having an unparalleled diversity of fauna and flora.

Kilimanjaro, the highest permanently snow-capped free standing mountain in Africa, the exotic Islands of Zanzibar, the finest game sanctuaries of Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Ruaha, Selous and the Marine Park of Mafia Island are only but a few of the living examples.

The scenery, topography and very friendly people harbour the growth of excellent cultural tourism, beach holidays, game activities, historical and archaeological ventures – and certainly some of the best wildlife photographic safaris on the continent.

WHERE TO GO AND WHEN

Tanzania is a superb year round destination and there is somewhere different for all seasons

Mar, Apr and May are the long heavy rains and whilst the northern parks can be quite beautiful at this time of year, many consider sustained rains not conducive to an enjoyable safari. Many hotels and lodges on the coast and islands choose this time of year to close, particularly in Apr

WHAT TO DO

The great Serengeti migration is constantly on the move. Speak to one of our experts to find out where visitors should be when, or take a look at the migration map

The Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera, is filled with virtually every species of game all year round

Chimpanzee trekking in Gombe and Mahale

Visit the remote parks of the south including Ruaha, Selous and Katavi

Our two week Tanzanian safari holiday was outstanding. The schedule was perfect and went without a hitch; we were welcomed at Kilimanjaro airport by our guide, Peter, who, without hesitation made the safari the success that it was. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous, and made the whole event personal to us (As I understand it, he was runner-up in ‘best guide’ last year – in our eyes he is number 1).(Mr & Mrs H, Tanzania Holiday)
