Accommodation

During this safari, you will stay at various accommodations throughout your Tanzania safari.

Panorama Campsite

After your fun game drive in Tarangire National Park, your accommodation will be available at the Panorama Campsite for the first night. There, you will dine and get a good night's sleep. Panorama Safari Camp is ideal place for those who like to crawl the national parks of Tanzania. In addition, the camp lays right above Lake Manyara and Park which is famous from the tree-climbing lions.

In Panorama Safari Camp, you can have a rest in permanent tents that is also equipped with convenient beds. They also provide space in case you arrive with your own tent or camper van. The terrace offers breathtaking views of Lake Manyara and Mto wa Mbu village. From the height of 1,240 meters, you can observe special birds, monkeys, butterflies, bugs and if you are lucky, a walking chameleon across the garden.

The restaurant offers authentic African food made of high quality of meat and fresh vegetables. Tanzania is wonderful place for couples and families too. Panorama Safari Camp promises an unforgettable memory.

Seronera Campsite

Near Serengeti National Park, the second and third nights will be spent at the Seronera Campsite. It is actually a set of campsites located in the Seronera area of the Serengeti. They offer a great opportunity to stay in one of the most interesting areas of the Serengeti at a low cost. The campsites are very good with modern toilets and shower facilities, a covered area for breakfast and dinner, and rangers patrolling the park 24 hours a day.

Simba Campsite

You will be able to relax and renew your tired limbs to get ready for your next trip. For the fourth night, your awesome camp accommodation will be available at the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, the Simba Campsite. You can then wrap up your journey for next day's departure. Simba Campsite is consists of several other campsites, which are categorized according to the use of the camp.

Simba Campsite A, which is a public campsite, is on the crater rim and is situated on the south western rim of the Ngorongoro Crater Rim about two kilometers from the crater village. It has well maintained toilets, regularly attended, hot water showers heated by wood fires, and firewood for sale. Views points of the crater are only a short walk away and are absolutely stunning.

Program

Day 1: Tarangire National Park

You will leave from Arusha in the morning and drive to Tarangire National Park which takes about a two-hour ride. You will enter the park for a game viewing, bringing with you your picnic lunch boxes. The park is famous for its giant baobab trees, large herds of elephants, plains game, and predators.

Tarangire also boasts a large variety of spectacular bird life including endemic species. You will leave the park in the late afternoon to arrive at the Panorama Safari Campsite for dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 2: Serengeti National Park

In the morning, you will depart for the Serengeti passing through the vast plain for an afternoon and sunset game drive to the heart of Serengeti. You will then spend dinner and your overnight stay at the Seronera Campsite.

Day 3: Full day in Serengeti Park

You will enjoy full day game drives in Serengeti Park, home to the greatest concentration of large mammals on earth. Non-migratory species include large prides of lions, solitary leopards, cheetah, and graceful impalas. The landscape is characterized by vast stretches of open plains, punctuated by kopjes, rock formations that have survived from the pre-Cambrian period, and open woodlands. Your evening meal will be spent at Seronera Campsite where you will also spend the night.

Day 4: Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After an early breakfast, collect your picnic lunch boxes for another game drive towards the central Serengeti until the mid-day.

Location

This camping safari will take place in Tanzania. There are various destinations that await your adventure trip.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

It is the largest unbroken volcanic caldera in the world, with the crater itself covering an area of 259 square kilometers and having walls over 600 meters high. People normally camp on the rim of the crater, the Simba Campsite, and from there, it is about a one-hour drive around the rim to the point where you reach the descent road. From there, you will see spectacular views across and down into the crater.

It can be very cold at 2,300 meters. The road follows a winding and very steep route known as the Seneto Descent. The Ngorongoro Crater offers some of the best game viewing in all the national parks in Tanzania. It has a rich variety of resident birds and animals that make the area their home. Its varied habitats support between 30,000 to 40,000 animals most of the year.

In the crater, you will see that the mandusi and gorogor swamps are areas of marshland. The lerai forest is dominated by yellow-barked acacia trees and in the center is Lake Magadi, a soda lake, which often visited by flocks of flamingos. The rainy season lasts from November to May, with the dry season running from June to October. June and July are the coldest months of the year. The rim of the crater is often shrouded in dense cloud.

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is the most famous destination for safari in Africa. The vast, open plains of the Serengeti epitomize, for many, what Africa is all about. In the Serengeti National Park, the grasslands are roamed by millions of wildebeest, zebra, and others, while being stalked by some of the continent’s fiercest predators, the mighty lion, the leopard, and the cheetah, to name a few.

To experience a Serengeti safari and witness the daily fight for survival is like nothing else in the world. Where life seems so precious and yet so cheap, welcome to the Serengeti! This stunning eco-system, part of the Mara or Serengeti grassland plains, has long been held by Africa-lovers as a must see destination on safari, partly because of the diversity and number of animals but also because of the uniqueness of this environment.

While often thought of as the norm in Africa, the atmosphere offered by the park is actually quite rare. Loosely speaking, the southern plains of the Serengeti, around the Ndutu Plains, the northern plains of the Lamai Wedge, and into the Masai Mara, Kenya, are the two main feeding grounds for the wildebeest herds.

They oscillate between the two on a yearly basis. In between these two open plains is a series of small ravines, rivers, and bush or scrub land. This area of the Serengeti national park is a predators’ delight with plenty of places to lay in wait for the unsuspecting calves as they begin their own safari, moving north and south.

Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is probably the least visited of the northern Tanzanian game parks, and because of that, it retains a real air of undiscovered Africa, particularly in the south of the park. It lies a little distance to the south east of Lake Manyara and covers an area of approximately 2,600 square kilometers. It is named after the Tarangire River that flows through the park.

Much of the park is grassland together with swamp lands and flood plains which feed the Tarangire River. Large baobab trees, particularly in the northern section of the park, stand dotted across the landscape dominating the scenery. Many of the trees are hundreds of years old. Elsewhere there is acacia woodland, open bushes, and groves of palm trees.

Animals can be seen in the greatest concentrations during the dry season that runs from June to November. The normal plains and savanna animals are found in Tarangire National Park, in great numbers, along with many resident species. A wildlife census during the wet season in 1980 indicated animal numbers in the Tarangire eco-system at the following levels, 32,000 zebras, 30,000 impalas, 25,000 wildebeests, 6,000 buffaloes, and 3,000 elephants.
