Program

Day 1: Kilimanjaro International Airport to Arusha

Arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport where a representative from Karibu Africa Safaris will be waiting for you. Upon completion of immigration procedures, you will be transferred to your accommodation in Arusha, the hub of tourism in Tanzania.

Day 2: Arusha to Tarangire National Park

After an early breakfast, you will depart for Tarangire National Park. The drive will take you through the city of Arusha then out to Maasai land where you can see Maasai grazing cattle and goats.

Enjoy the game drive through the park which covers an area of 2,850 km2 and famous for its large herd of elephants, some over 100 in number; and large baobab trees that dot the landscape as you head to your accommodation for a night under the clear and sparkling African night sky.

Day 3: Tarangire to Lake Manyara National Park

You will have an early breakfast then head out to Lake Manyara National Park for an early morning game drive. The beauty of the park begins at the park gate by driving through the lush forest, then open grassland before reaching the lake edge.

To any game watcher, the park is a paradise, full of endemic species and a variety of birdlife. Expect to see various animals like elephants, hippos, impala, dik-dik, bushbuck, and if you a lucky, the famous tree-climbing lions of Manyara that have made this park world famous.

You will return to the camp for hot lunch, and thereafter join local activities at Mto Wa Mbu, take a bike ride to the lake or a walking safari to the village to experience the local culture and sample local products. This short adventure ends with a drive back to the camp in a tuk-tuk where a driver will be waiting to transfer you to your accommodation for the night.

Day 4: Ngorongoro Crater

Have an early breakfast then depart for Ngorongoro Conservation Area for a full day crater tour. You will descend into the crater; a fantastic experience on its own with beautiful scenery and majestic game life.

At a depth of 610 m and a floor area of 260 km2, the crater is named one of the natural wonders of Africa and on a clear day, you can see the whole crater wall from the bottom. Considered Mother Nature’s zoo, the crater boasts a variety of large animals, approximately 25,000 in number including the rare black rhino.

Lunch is at a picnic site with a view of hippos lazing in the shallow waters of the lake, followed by another game drive en route to the camp. On the way, you will have an opportunity to do a short safari walk; enjoying the landscape and the chance to see local Maasai houses.

Day 5: Ngorongoro to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you depart for Serengeti National Park. The Serengeti National Park is made up of grassland savanna, river trine forest, and woodlands, each providing a picturesque landscape.

Known for its abundant diversity of wildlife, this park is most famous for the annual migration; a spectacular event as thousands of wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes try to cross the Mara River into Maasai Mara while fighting the river tide and the numerous crocodiles looking for an easy meal.

There will be a stop at the crater viewpoint, where on a clear day offers views of the entire crater, then proceed with a game drive en route to your accommodation. An option of visiting the Maasai Bomas (houses) which are located inside the Ngorongoro plains is available for an opportunity to experience the Maasai culture.

Day 6: Full day in Serengeti National Park

A full day of game drive exploring the vast Serengeti and all that it has to offer; enjoying the different habitats found in the park full of different animals like as lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, elephants, hippos, impala, zebras, wildebeest, Grant’s gazelle, Thomson’s gazelle and many others.

Serengeti also prides itself on its birdlife, boasting a variety of bird species that decorate the park with their different colors and sounds. The sheer size of the park and its changing scenery make it a day worth remembering to any visitor to this iconic part of Tanzania.

Day 7: Serengeti to Zanzibar

Early morning breakfast followed by a walking safari; enjoying the morning sun on the Serengeti Plains and coming closer to nature before heading back to the tented camp for hot brunch, followed by transfer to Fort Ikoma airstrip for your transfer to Zanzibar, if you plan to continue to Zanzibar.

Location

Tarangire National Park

The Tarangire National Park is located between the meadows of Masai Steppe to the southeast and the lakes of the Great Rift Valley to the north and west. Among the rolling area where the park lies, it occupies an area of 2,600 square kilometers.

The park earns its name from the perennial Tarangire River, a permanent feature that takes over the northern part of the park. Through the cut ditches, the river flows upwards up to when it leaves the corner of the park, in the North West flowing into Lake Burungi.

There are a number of large swamps which are usually dry for most of the year in the south. The Tarangire is usually very dry, in fact, drier than the Serengeti; however, its vegetation is much greener especially with lots of elephant grass, vast areas with mixed acacia woodlands and some of the wonderful ribbons of the aquatic forest.

Located just a few hours’ drive from the town of Arusha, Tarangire is a popular stop for people traveling through the northern safari circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti. The park extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.

Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It is the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem – a paradise for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope such as the stately fringe-eared Oryx and peculiar long-necked gerenuk are regularly observed.

More ardent bird-lovers might keep an eye open for screeching flocks of the dazzlingly colorful, yellow-collared lovebird, and the somewhat drabber Rufous-tailed weaver and ashy starling – all endemic to the dry savannah of north-central Tanzania.

Lake Manyara National Park

Lake Manyara National Park is located in northern Tanzania, between Lake Manyara and the Great Rift Valley. Located beneath the cliffs of the Manyara Escarpment, on the edge of the Rift Valley, the park offers varied ecosystems, incredible birdlife, and breathtaking views.

The alkaline soda of Lake Manyara is home to an incredible array of birdlife that thrives on its brackish waters. Pink flamingo stoops and grazes by the thousands of colorful specks against the grey minerals of the lakeshore. Yellow-billed storks swoop and corkscrew on thermal winds rising up from the escarpment, and herons flap their wings against the sun-drenched sky.

Lake Manyara National Park provides the perfect introduction to Tanzania’s wildlife, especially birdlife. Its ground water forests, bush plains, baobab strewn cliffs, and algae-streaked hot springs offer incredible ecological variety in a small area, rich in wildlife and incredible numbers of birds.

More than 400 species have been recorded, and even a first-time visitor to Africa might reasonably expect to observe 100 of these in one day.

Highlights include thousands of pink-hued flamingos on their perpetual migration, as well as other large water birds such as pelicans, cormorants, and storks. Even reluctant bird-watchers will find something to watch and marvel at within the national park.

The compact game-viewing circuit through Manyara offers a virtual microcosm of the Tanzanian safari experience. From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside; the blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees; dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows, and the outsized forest hornbills honk cacophonously in the high canopy.

Lake Manyara’s famous tree-climbing lions are another reason to pay a visit to this park. A unique spectacle in the wildlife world, they make the broken forest and escarpment make for good habitat.

In addition to the lions, the national park is also home to the largest concentration of baboons anywhere in the world, a fact that accounts for interesting game viewing of large families of the primates.

Located on the way to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, Lake Manyara National Park is surely a worthy stop in its own right.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is found in Northern Tanzania, bordered in the north-west by the plains of Serengeti and the eastern arm of the Great Rift Valley. The conservation area spans over vast expanses of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodland, and forest.

The main attraction of the conservation area is the Ngorongoro Crater; a caldera that was formed 3 million years ago after the collapse of a giant volcano. Standing higher and mightier than the neighboring Mount Kilimanjaro, the volcano had vast slopes that directed their own weather pattern and water flow.

The ferocious volcanic eruption collapsed the mighty mountain, forming a caldera that is 610 meters deep with a floor area of 260 km2. The crater rim is over 2,200 meters high and experiences its own climate.

Swathes of cloud hang around the rim most days of the year and it’s one of the few places in Tanzania where it can get chilly at night. From the crater viewpoint, one is able to make the tiny shapes of wildlife making their way around the crater floor far below.

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is host to the largest ungulate herds in the world, including gnu (wildebeests), plains zebras, and Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles. Predatory animals include lions, spotted hyenas, leopards, and cheetahs.

Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most likely areas in Tanzania to see the endangered Black Rhino, as a small population is thriving in this idyllic and protected environment, and currently one of the few areas where they continue to breed in the wild. Notable among more than 400 species of birds in the area are flamingos, silvery-cheeked hornbills, and superb starling.

The Ngorongoro Crater has achieved world-renowned status, attracting an ever-increasing number of visitors each year. One of Africa’s most famous sites, the crater is home to approximately 30,000 animals at any one time and is said to have the highest density of wildlife in Africa. At 19 kilometers wide, it is one of the largest unbroken calderas in the world that isn’t a lake.

Over the course of a few million years after the volcanic collapse, this geologic divot filled with life. Abundant water and grasses attracted ungulates, large predators, and countless bird species.

Because of its enclosed topography, animals would descend into this bowl-shaped place and never leave, making some to consider it as an “eighth wonder of the world.”

Ngorongoro Conservation Area has been a subject of extensive archeological research for over 80 years and has yielded a long sequence of evidence of human evolution.

Evidence includes fossilized footprints at Laetoli, associated with the development of human bipedalism; and a sequence of diverse, evolving hominid species within Olduvai Gorge, which range from Austral piths to the Homo lineage.

Over time after its formation, the caldera teemed with sustenance, while also providing grazing lands for human tribes living along its edge. And so began the story of one of this planet’s most beautiful places, an unprecedented coliseum of biodiversity.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti name is derived from the Maasai phrase “serengit” which means “endless plains.” Located in northern Tanzania, the park shares its northern boundary with the Kenyan Masai Mara Game Reserve, and to the south with the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

The Park can be divided into three sections. The popular southern / central part (Seronera Valley) is what the Maasai called the “serengit”, the land of endless plains. It is a classic savannah dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife.

The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River and has more forests and dense bush. The north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve and is the least visited section of the park.

The Serengeti fits well into most people’s dream of an African safari with its abundant wildlife, vast golden plains dotted with thorny umbrella acacia trees, kopjes, and sausage trees, and its crocodile and hippo-filled rivers.

It is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth – the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. It is the migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous.

Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back. It is a story of hope, perseverance, and bravery.

Established in 1952, the vast savanna of the park is breathtaking with a resident population of lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, and bird species that are also impressive. There’s a wide variety of accommodation available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps.

The park covers 5,700 sq miles, (14,763 sq km); it’s larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple of hundred vehicles driving around.
