Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1&2    Maramboi Tented Lodge, Lake Manyara

The start of this adventure takes us from Arusha to the beautiful and diverse Tarangire and Lake Manyara areas. We enjoy captivating game drives in Tarangire searching for 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. Enjoy further wildlife experiences in Manyara, a magnificent landscape of acacia woodlands, water forests, baobab strewn cliffs, algae–streaked hot springs, swamps and the lake itself. The park supports 400 species of bird, and the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world. Other species include giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, warthog, the Cape clawless otter, and Egyptian mongoose

Day 3&4 Lake Natron

Heading further into northern Tanzania we journey to  the fascinating soda and salt lake of Lake Natron, the only regular breeding area in East Africa for around 2.5m lesser flamingos, this is a beautiful spectacle to behold on the lake. There is free time to explore the area – look out for the hominid footprint, hike to the waterfalls, do a little bird watching or relax in natural plunge pools by camp

Day 5 Lobo Wildlife Lodge or Serengeti North Wilderness Camp, Northern Serengeti

Onto one of the most famous parks of all – the Serengeti, our next nights are spent in this beautiful and vast area, the first night in the northern section with its gently rolling landscapes – enjoy game drives looking for gazelles, predators including lion and leopard, hyena and jackals, and of course the vast numbers of plains game – the Serengeti is home to more than 3 million animals

Day 6&7 Serengeti Wilderness Camp, Seronera

Onward to the central Serengeti for 2 further nights and to the heart of the park where you’ll find plenty of animals year–round. Note that camps may vary seasonally to ensure we encounter the best game–viewing opportunities during the Great Wildebeest Migration, where up to 1.25million wildebeest trek in columns of up to 40km long in search for fresh grazing as they make a circular route. Though the Serengeti is most famous for the migration, there are plenty of resident animals and the region offers busy year–round game viewing.  On day 7, perhaps also take part in an optional hot–air ballooning trip – see this great animal spectacle from an “birds–eye” view

Day 8&9 Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater

En–route to Ngorongoro, we stop at Olduvai Gorge, famed for being the “Cradle of Mankind” where some of the oldest hominid remains were found dating as far back as 1.8m years ago – more recent discoveries have found remains that date as far back as 3.7m years. From here we head onward to the World Heritage Site of Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest intact volcanic caldera and the chance for spectacular game viewing in the crater itself – there’s a chance of spotting the Big 5 here, a huge variety of birds, a stunning backdrop and superb way to finish your safari.  This famous location is on most peoples’ bucket list due to its natural beauty and abundance of diverse wildlife

Day 10 Arusha – end

Return to Arusha today where your safari comes to an end.

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
