This 4 days camping safari, you will visit the three most well known reserves in North Tanzania: Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Serengeti National Park. Unlike the campsites in other parts of Africa, the ones in Tanzania tend not to be fenced and you just need to relax as our experienced guides will look after you and our safari cooks will treat and spoil you with their excellent culinary skills. This tour includes participation camping. This means that guests will have to assist with camp chores, such as setting up your tent. See the day-by-day section for a more detailed description of the camp chores.

Day 1: Drive from Arusha to Tarangire

In the morning, we will collect you from your hotel and drive you to the Tarangire National Park. The park, which is roughly the size of Luxemburg, covers an area of approximately 2600 km². Bush savannah, seasonal marshes and formidable baobab trees make up the landscape of this nature reserve. The Tarangire National Park is probably one of the best places in East Africa to watch elephants and to get very close to these animals. Late in the afternoon, you will leave the park and you will stay for the night at a campsite. Lunch; Dinner.

 

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will drive to the lush crater uplands, where the fertile soil allows crops such as wheat, corn and coffee to grow. You will have lunch at a picnic spot before you slowly drive towards the Ngorongoro Crater. On the way, you will pass the Oldupai Gorge where the English couple, Louis and Mary Leak, pioneered archaeological excavation work. The name "Serengeti" origins from the Masai word "Siringitu" and means "endless plains". In the afternoon, you will reach the destination for the day - the Seronera Valley in the central Serengeti area. You will camp for the night and stay in "safari styled" tents enjoying a good meal in the middle of the African bush. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner.

 

Day 3: Serengeti to Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast, you will continue the game drive through the Serengeti National Park. You will sight hundreds of wildebeests and zebras and often lions and other big cats such as leopards and cheetahs in the Seronera Valley. After lunch at a picnic site, you will drive in the direction of the Ngorongoro Crater. As soon as you have reached the edge of the crater, the caldera opens up before you and you will have a remarkable sight over this impressive natural wonder. You will camp for the night on the crater's edge and you will enjoy the fantastic view as the sun goes down. Breakfast; Lunch; Dinner.

 

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha

After an early breakfast at daybreak, you will drive down into the caldera of the crater. Inside the world's biggest caldera, you cannot fail to be captivated by the rich and diverse wildlife. On the grass steppe and in the acacia tree woods, you will find almost all species that are found in the East African savannah; with the exception of topis, Masai giraffes and impalas. Quite often you can observe the "Big Five" (lions, elephants, buffalos, rhinoceros and leopards) within a couple of hours. After an extensive wildlife tour and a picnic for lunch, you will leave the caldera in the afternoon and drive back to Arusha.
