Big five safari in Tanzania

Tanzania has been the focus of our passion for East Africa for a very long time. It remains a truly exciting country to visit, with some of the best opportunities for safaris in all of Africa. 30% of Tanzania territory is a National Park or Game Reserve. The wildlife is thriving, the landscapes are stunning and the Tanzanians are truly welcoming. When we talk about Tanzania Tourism we talk about the famous Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, Great Migration, Rift Valley or the spice Island of Zanzibar.

Activities: game viewing.

Program: After breakfast we drive through Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Serengeti National Park with packed lunch, game viewing en-route.

Serengeti, over 6,000 square miles of sprawling, unspoiled landscape is quite a sight. Add to that an extraordinary population of resident and migratory animals in a constant bid for survival, and you understand why this is often called, "the world as it was in the beginning." As soon as you enter the park, wildlife viewing begins. Search for leopard and lion. Watch in awe as zebra, wildebeest and elephant simply appear from amidst the woodlands and plains.

Accommodation: Dinner and overnight at Kati Kati Tented Camp.

DAY 5 – Ngorongoro crater

Activities: game viewing.

Program: After breakfast we leave Serengeti with last game drive en-route and move to Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Today we descend down Ngorongoro crater for game viewing with packed lunch.

The park is one of the most densely crowded wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals. The Ngorongoro Crater is often called 'Africa's Eden' and the '8th Natural Wonder of the World,' a visit to the crater is a main drawcard for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. Within the crater rim, large herds of zebra and wildebeest graze nearby while sleeping lions laze in the sun. At dawn, the endangered black rhino returns to the thick cover of the crater forests after grazing on dew-laden grass in the morning mist. Just outside the crater's ridge, tall Maasai herd their cattle and goats over green pastures through the highland slopes, living alongside the wildlife as they have for centuries.

Accommodation: Dinner and overnight at Country Lodge or Tloma Lodge or Olea Africana Lodge.

 

DAY 6 – Karatu to airport: around 3 hours transfer

Program: After breakfast we leave Karatu and drive to Arusha or Kilimanjaro airport (if you have time you can stop on the way for shopping).
