Program

Safari

Africa’s wild creatures do not live in isolation, each species represents a strand in the web forming the community of plants and animals in which it has carved its niche. Even the briefest safari will traverse many such ecological communities and habitats.

The eye soon discerns that the African world is not a singular entity in which animals occur at random, but an ordered realm where every creature has its appropriate place. Some species are extremely adaptive and survive in a wide spectrum of environments. Others are confined to specific niches or microhabitats.

It would take volumes to describe all of Africa’s animals, not to mention their relationships and the habitats in which they live in. A small understanding of African ecology will go a long way toward enriching your safari experience, for the wonder of the animals is heightened by an appreciation and awareness of their total environment.

Although the famous big game animals naturally command the most attention, people who look only for lions, elephants and other large mammals tend to get bored after a few days. Those curious about African wildlife in all of its varied forms never have that problem, for it is impossible to run out of new and fascinating discoveries.

The game drive / game viewing is the standard mode of wildlife viewing in the African national parks, concession, where both regulations and safety considerations restrict exploration on foot. Conditions are ideal for vehicular safaris; rising savanna fame country from the security and comfort of a car, you will encounter a large number and variety of animals simply by chance.

Game drives in most of the parks are always invigorating: you may go from one species to the next – observing zebra here, giraffe there, a knot of impala on the right, a trio of elephant bulls ahead. However, there is really no guarantee on what you will see; the animals are free to move around as they please and may even pass beyond park boundaries.

Itinerary

Day 1: Tarangire National Park

You will be picked up in the morning and after a short briefing you will head off in direction of the Tarangire National Park. The park with its savannah, baobab trees and seasonal swamps is home to huge elephant herds.

Animals gather at the life-giving Tarangire River and you should see a selection of mammals ranging from giraffes, bushbucks, and heartbeats to zebras and warthogs. The park is also home to buffaloes, zebras, and wildebeests which are always closely followed by a range of predators such as lions. Leopards are seen now and then but cheetahs are rarely spotted.

From the open roof of the safari vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the animals. In the late afternoon, you will leave the park and head to a nearby campsite, where you will spend the night.

Day 2: Mto wa Mbu to Lake Natron

After breakfast, you will leave the area around Tarangire National Park and head to the multicultural village of Mto wa Mbu. From here you will travel on a spectacular and very bumpy gravel road along the Rift Valley Escarpment with Ol Doinyo Lengai “the holy mountain” of the Masai in the distance.

Today’s destination is the typical Masai village of Ngare Sero in the hot and dusty Rift Valley. In the distance, you might see a pink glow from flamingos breeding and feeding on the algae of the alkaline Lake Natron (seasonal and depending on water level). In the afternoon you will join a Masai guide on a walk to a nearby waterfall before you return for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Lake Natron to Serengeti National Park

After an early start, you will travel along adventurous dirt tracks with breath-taking views as your vehicle climbs out of the Rift Valley to reach the grassy plains of the Serengeti by midday. Serengeti means “endless plains” in the language of the Masai and you will see the grassland savannah stretching to the horizon.

The Serengeti is the most famous park in Tanzania and it is home to the largest animal migration on the planet – hundreds of thousands of animals trek to find fresh grass and water. You will overnight at a tented lodge for dinner in the northern or central part of the park.

Day 4: Serengeti National Park

The entire day is dedicated to game viewing in the Serengeti National Park. You will either go on a full day game drive or join early morning and afternoon drives in the Seronera area, depending on last night’s stop.

Between December and May, huge herds of wildebeests and zebras will be seen, with calves and foals being born between January and March. The Seronera area is also the best place to spot the shy and nocturnal leopard. You will spend the night at a lodge in the Seronera area.

Day 5: Serengeti to Ngorongoro

The morning is set aside for another game drive in the Serengeti and you might spot some creatures that you haven’t seen yet. Animals tend to be more active in the morning before the temperatures soar around midday. After lunch, you will leave the plains of the Serengeti and travel to the highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You will overnight at the lodge directly on the Ngorongoro Crater’s edge with a view over the collapsed volcano. It is a perfect spot to enjoy a sun-downer at sunset.

Day 6: Ngorongoro Crater

Rise and shine! It is up at daybreak to take on the steep path leading down into the 600 meters deep crater. The slopes are forested but soon the landscape changes to savannah with the occasional acacia tree here and there.

The wildlife in the crater is just breathtaking and with a little luck, you might see the “Big Five” – lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard. You should also see warthogs, wildebeests, zebras, hippos and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an entire morning of game viewing and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will travel to Mto wa Mbu where you will overnight at country lodge.

Day 7: Mto wa Mbu to Arusha

After a leisurely breakfast, you will start your return trip to Arusha, where you will arrive around midday. You will be dropped off at a hotel or at the airport.
