Day by Day Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival in Arusha, Kilimanjaro
You will meet your Tanzania Specialist Guide when you arrive at Kilimanjaro airport. This will take you to your hotel, where you can relax and enjoy the African atmosphere for the rest of the day. Your personal Tanzania Specialist Guide not only knows a lot about Tanzanian culture, but he can also tell you a lot about the country’s beautiful national parks and sights. Make sure to ask your Tanzania Specialist Guide anything; he’ll be happy to do so.
This is an exclusive private safari, so you can get the most out of your trip! You are free to choose when you want to leave in the morning and when you want to return in the evening. During the safari, you can also spend as much time as you want watching a specific animal or herd. You are not required to be considerate of others. As you go on safari, your personal guide will give you advice so that your trip will be one to remember.
Your safari will begin the following morning!
Arusha National Park, Day 2
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel after breakfast and drive you to Arusha National Park, where your safari will begin. The landscapes and wildlife in this charming park are diverse. From lakes, waterfalls, and swamps to volcanoes, mountains, and tropical rainforests, there’s something for everyone. Many beautiful birds, such as silvery-cheeked hornbills and thousands of pink-hued flamingos, flock to them. This park is also the only place in northern Tanzania where the black-and-white colobus monkey can be seen easily.
A canoe or walking safari with an armed ranger is one of the most popular safari activities in this national park. It’s a great way to get up close and personal with wildlife without having to sit in a safari vehicle.
Day 3: The National Park of Lake Manyara
One of the smaller but most scenic national parks is the first one you visit. Elephants and large groups of baboons can be seen in the forest, as well as tree-climbing lions if you’re lucky. Buffalos, warthogs, giraffes, wildebeest, zebras, and flamingos can all be found in the vicinity of the massive soda lake. The shallow Hippo Pool is a great place to see hippopotamuses, as well as a beautiful view of the Rift Valley Escarpment.
Lake Manyara is a great place to do both game drives and fun things like cultural tours, mountain biking tours, and canopy walks at the same time.
Serengeti National Park (Days 4–6)
Your safari in the Serengeti National Park continues today. Its breathtaking scenery has been featured in some of the most awe-inspiring nature documentaries. The vast plains and plethora of wildlife are unrivaled. The annual wildebeest migration, which attracts over a million animals, is undoubtedly the Serengeti’s highlight. Seeing millions of wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles thunder across the endless plains of the Serengeti is a true spectacle. You’ll be on the lookout for the herds across the plains with your personal guide. Apart from migratory animals, you will be able to see lions, cheetahs, leopards, and a variety of other animals. Expect to be wowed by Africa’s most famous park’s natural beauty.
We recommend going on a balloon safari if you want to see wildlife from a different perspective. It’s amazing to float above the plains, surrounded by herds of animals, and not hear a thing.
Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater
You will depart after breakfast for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. There is a good chance of seeing a lot of wildlife along this route. You will descend to the Ngorongoro Crater floor after arriving at the crater rim. The views are spectacular! This erupting volcano has created a unique ecosystem with a diverse range of plants. Take in the stunning colors of the landscapes as well as the variety of animals. Elephants, lions, buffaloes, hippos, and even the rare black rhino live in the crater, which has the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa. One of the best places to see all five of the Big Five is here. The views of the crater floor from the crater rim are breathtaking. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders due to its natural beauty.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area has a lot of different things to do, like going to a Maasai village.
Tarangire National Park, Day 8
After breakfast, drive to Tarangire National Park for a full day of game viewing. Because it is one of Tanzania’s lesser-known parks, it retains its authentic safari atmosphere. The hilly landscape, with its majestic Baobab trees and blue sky, is breathtaking. The world’s largest concentration of elephants can be seen here. Around the Tarangire River, herds of up to 300 elephants can be seen drinking or taking mud baths. Aside from elephants, Tarangire is a birder’s paradise. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, and even tree-climbing pythons can be found in the area surrounding these swamps.
Tarangire-Airport, Day 9-10
Depending on your flight, today will be free to relax or explore. Your driver will take you to Kilimanjaro Airport for your departure flight, and you will return home on day 10.
