Tanzania Safari

Its all about the Animals

Day-1: Tanzania - Arrival                

Arrival in Tanzania and transfer to hotel in Moshi.

Day-2: Lake Munyara

After breakfast, we drive away from Moshi to Lake Munyara. By comparison with Ngorongoro and Tarangire, Manyara is much smaller but no less scenic. It is situated between the escarpment formed by the rift valley and the soda water Lake Manyara. It is an ideal spot for bird lovers and home to large groups of elephant and the tree climbing lion. Large numbers of buffalo, grazing giraffe and wildebeest are found in the area along with chattering monkeys and rummaging warthogs.

Day-3: Serengeti

After breakfast, we will drive to and tour the Serengeti. The area is particularly famous for the massive migration of 1.5million Wildebeest, and several thousand Zebra all heading for greener pastures and improved grazing area's, risking life and limb to predators such as Lion and Crocodile.

The National Park is broadly divided into three areas, the Seronera Valley and Seronera River, the Western Corridor and the Northern Lobo area that extends northwards to join the Masai Mara. We will spend the day game viewing and then head to our overnight accommodation.

Day-4: Serengeti

Tour of the Serengeti park and overnight at the camp. 

Day-5: Ngorongoro Crater

We drive to the Ngorongoro Crater via Olduvai Gorge, one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world. Overnight at the Ngorongoro Crater

Day-6: Ngorongoro Crater          

This morning we will descend into and tour Ngorongoro Crater. The Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact caldera, forming an incredible bowl shape with sides of about 600m deep.  It is around 16-19km wide and covers an area of about 270km2. Various habitats form a complete microcosm within the crater floor, from grasslands to forest, swamps and Lake Makat. It is home to about 20 000 wild animals and although the animals move in and out of the area consistently, the vegetation in the crater floor provides an ongoing food supply attracting the grazers. We enjoy lunch in the crater and later, overnight Ngorongoro Crater.  

Day-7: Tarangire National Park          

This morning we head to Tarangire National Park south of the Ngorongoro. It covers about 2600 sq km of floodplains, grassland and tall woodlands of acacia. It is home to the famous Baobab trees, hundreds of years old. During the drier winter months of July to September, a large number of migrant animals flock to the plains, which tend to be less concentrated with game in the months of April and May when there is more rain. Tarangire is known for its elephants as large numbers pour into the area around June, along with many buck species, wildebeest and zebra. The area is rich in bird life as well as a few resident lion who tend to remain all year round. At the end of the day, interrupted only by watching game and taking in a picnic lunch we drive back to Moshi. 

Day-8: Depart

After breakfast, transfer to Kilimanjaro airport for your flight home
