Panorama campsite

Panorama is an 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 for the tree-climbing lions. In Panorama campsite, you can have a rest in exotic beehives shaped bungalows called African Igloos or in permanent tents that are also equipped with convenient beds. The terrace offers breathtaking views of Lake Manyara and Mto Wa Mbu village.

Seronera campsite

Seronera campsite is one of the most famed campsites in Tanzania for animal encounters. Animals will pass through the campsite at night on their nocturnal wanderings.

Simba campsite

Ngorongoro Simba is a huge public campsite set on the crater rim and it is situated on the southwestern rim of the Ngorongoro Crater Rim about two kilometers from the crater village.

The campsite has well-maintained toilets and regularly attended hot water showers (heated by wood fires) and firewood for sale. Wild animals from the crater and Serengeti as far as from another part of Ngorongoro Conservation Area frequently visit the campsite which is not fenced, so you should move with caution.

Day 1

In the morning after breakfast, you will depart from your hotel to Tarangire National Park, followed by a packed lunch at the park. In the afternoon, enjoy game viewing in the park renowned for the famous tree climbing lions as well as the large flocks of the flamingos. You will return to your campsite for dinner and overnight at Panorama campsite/ or Sunbright campsite.

Day 2

In the morning after breakfast, you will proceed to Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch boxes continued by an en-route game drive in the park. You will come back for dinner and overnight at the Seronera campsite.

Day 3

In the morning after breakfast, you will proceed to another game drive at Serengeti National Park, which is famous for cheetah, lion, and leopard, with a lunch box prepared from the campsite. Later in the afternoon, you will enjoy an en-route game viewing to Ngorongoro Carter, followed by dinner and overnight at Simba campsite.

Day 4

In the morning after breakfast, you will descend down to Ngorongoro Crater floor with a picnic lunch box for a morning game drive of the wild animals including the big five animals, including the rare black rhino. You will wrap the day and drive back to Arusha.

This safari will take place in Tarangire National Park, Serengeti National Park, and Ngorongoro Crater.

Tarangire National Park

Day after the day of cloudless skies. The fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shriveled to a shadow of its wet season self but it is choked with wildlife. Thirsty nomads have wandered hundreds of parched kilometers knowing that there is always water in the river. Herds of up to 300 elephants scratch the dry river bed for underground streams.

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 smorgasbord 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.

During the rainy season, the seasonal visitors scatter over a 20,000 square kilometer range until they exhaust the green plains and the river calls once more. Tarangire's mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties. Tarangire's pythons climb trees, as do its lions and leopards, lounging in the branches where the fruit of the sausage tree disguises the twitch of a tail.

Serengeti National Park

With a million wildebeest, it is survival of the fittest as 40 kilometers of long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north. Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site, and recently proclaimed a 7th worldwide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration when some six million hooves pound the open plains as more than 200,000 zebras and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing.

The Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa with great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala, and Grant’s gazelle. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers. Solitary leopards haunt the acacia trees lining the Seronera River, while a high density of cheetahs prowls the southeastern plains.

A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded, as having 500-plus bird species, ranging from the out sized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills. As enduring as the game-viewing is the liberating sense of space that characterizes the Serengeti Plains, stretching across sun burnt savannah to a shimmering golden horizon at the end of the earth.

Yet, after the rains, this golden expanse of grass is transformed into an endless green carpet flecked with wildflowers. There are also wooded hills and towering termite mounds, rivers lined with fig trees, and acacia woodland stained orange by dust. Popular the Serengeti might be, it remains so vast that you may be the only human audience when a pride of lions masterminds a siege, focused unswervingly on its next meal.

Ngorongoro Crater

Had it not become the world's sixth-largest unbroken caldera, then what is now known as the Ngorongoro crater could have been a towering volcanic mountain, as high as Kilimanjaro. The crater is the flagship tourism feature for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It is a large, unbroken, and un-flooded caldera, formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed some three million years ago.

The Ngorongoro crater sinks to a depth of 610 meters, with a base area covering 260 square kilometers. The height of the original volcano must have ranged between 4,500 to 5,800 meters high. Apart from the main caldera, Ngorongoro also has two other volcanic craters, Olmoti and Empakai. The former is famous for its stunning waterfalls and the latter holding a deep lake and lush, green walls.

On the leeward of the Ngorongoro highlands protrudes the iconic Oldonyo Lengai. It is an active volcano and Tanzania's third highest peak after Kilimanjaro and Meru. Known to local people as the Mountain of God, Mount Lengai's last major eruption occurred in 2007. At the mountain's foot is Lake Natron, East Africa's major breeding ground for flamingos.

You will be served three local cooked meals daily. Food is excellent and you will find a good mix of African, European and International cuisine. Fresh vegetables, seafood, and meats make it an exceptional culinary experience to travel here. South African wines are sold everywhere and are excellent. Tap water is not drinkable in most areas, only bottled water should be consumed.

The Serengeti National Park offers hot air balloon safaris, walking safari, picnicking, game drives, bush lunch or dinner that can be arranged with hotels or tour operators. You may also opt for Maasai rock paintings and musical rocks.

    Terribly bad organization

    CONS Cons: 1, Until 10h00 of the first day, I was told that the tour was postponed to the second day, which means my tour had to be shorten and I didn't have time to book a new tour with other company. 2, They were so rude to my Suitcase that the surface was destroyed. 3, They put our luggage on top of the car with broken cloth covered. After the rain half of our luggage was wet. 4, Because of the same reason above, we had to use wet sleeping bag and mattress. 5, The last day, they made me missed my flight. However they didn't bought me a new flight ticket but only booked a 8 hours bus ticket. I had to cancel my activities in the following day.

    PROS Pros: The food is good, the guide is okay but sometimes drove too fast. The people in the same tour are so nice, we had a lot of fun together.

    Organizer response: I have read Yanfen Feng’s below mail but it does not really make sense to us because we had done all what is reguired for arranging the good safaris to all of our 6pax on our safaris vehicle and all went on a trip as it was booked. The 4-days camping safaris to Tarangire,Serengeti and Ngorongoro was great and the rest of the group return yesterday and l have talked with them about the safaris and they told me a good different stories totally different from what Yanfen Feng is complaining BUT the group mentioned about the rain and we have no control on stopping the rain to rain while the van was moving and no one anticipated to rain in Serengeti at this time but our staff has tried their best level to help the clients bags on not to be wet and it was done. Yanfen Feng wanted to be treated like an enjoy under the camping safaris and no one can do that, We can only treat a client same as other clients who are travelling on the same safaris jeep and for the issue of Yanfen Feng’s bag broken no one broken her bag but it was completely broken by herself and we do not know on why she forced to take that big bag on the safaris while we did only informed all clients to take a small day back bag that you can put clothes to us for 4 to 5days during the safaris, No one had an idea on how did her bag get broken and we do not understand on why she want us to take her bag responsibility while we asked her to leave it at our house.
