Program

Day 1: Arusha - Tarangire National Park

Your safari guide will collect you from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) and drive you to Tarangire National Park (approximately two hours). Tarangire is best known for its elephant families, savannah, iconic baobab trees, seasonal swamps, and the life-giving Tarangire River.

Animals gather at the river and giraffe, bushbuck, and hartebeest are often seen. The park is also home to buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest. These animals are closely followed by a range of predators such as lions and leopards. From the open roof of the vehicle, you will be able to absorb the landscape and watch the wildlife. After a full day in the park, you will drive to your tented lodge, where you will be able to relax, enjoy dinner, and spend the night.

  • Meals: Picnic lunch and dinner
  • Accommodation: Maramboi Tented Camp

Day 2: Tarangire - Serengeti National Park

After breakfast, you will drive up the crater highlands, stopping at the rim for a spectacular view of the Ngorongoro Crater, which you will visit later on in the trip. Continuing as far as the eye can see is the vast Serengeti National Park. Serengeti means “endless plain” and this 6900-square-mile (18,000-square-kilometer) park is inhabited by more than two million wildebeest.

From July to April is the season when wildebeest give birth to their calves, and also hundreds of thousands of plains zebras and Thomson’s gazelles. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrates throughout the park. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax, bat-eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboons, and African hares also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. After the game drive, you will drive to the tented camp for a very special bush experience. Dinner and overnight.

  • Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner
  • Accommodation: Tingitata Tented Camp

Day 3: Serengeti National Park

You will have a full day to enjoy the Serengeti with game drives, a picnic lunch or a sumptuous lunch at the camp. Dinner and overnight.

  • Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner
  • Accommodation: Tingitata Tented Camp

Day 4: Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Today, you will wake up very early to do an early morning game drive. The animals are more active at this time and you may see a fantastic sunrise. The sunrise in the African savannah is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have. You will then travel towards the Ngorongoro Crater.

Arriving at the edge of the crater in the afternoon, you will have your first glimpse of what awaits you the following day: glistening streams, open grassland, and an infinite amount of animals. A welcome way to stretch your legs after days of driving is taking a guided walk on the Ngorongoro Crater rim. This is an optional activity. An armed ranger will protect you against a possible encounter with the many animals roaming around the forest.

You’ll have beautiful views on the crater and even the Olduvai Gorge and the impressive Serengeti plains. An easy-paced two-hour walk with no arduous climbs, before enjoying a stunning sunset from your lodging on the rim. Dinner and overnight.

  • Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner
  • Accommodation: Rhino Lodge

Day 5: Ngorongoro Crater to Zanzibar East Coast

Rise and shine! It is an early departure to the lush highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. This morning’s destination is the world famous Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once you have reached the crater rim, you will drive down a steep track into the 600-meter deep caldera to see a range of animals, grasslands, birds, and a lake.

The massive collapsed volcano is home to over 25,000 mammals ranging from the “Big Five” to spotted hyenas and some of the more than 500 bird species of the area. After an extensive game drive and a picnic lunch in the crater, you will be driven to Arusha airport where you will catch a flight to Zanzibar.

You will be met at the airport in Zanzibar by a representative from Zama Tours. He will drive you to your beach hotel where you will be able to relax and enjoy an evening meal.

  • Meals: Breakfast, picnic lunch, and dinner
  • Accommodation: Uroa Bay Beach Hotel

Day 6 to 8: Zanzibar East Coast - explore and relax

Over the next few days, you will be able to relax and enjoy everything the East Coast has to offer. You can lounge on the beach or by the pool, or take part in some of the many activities. There are several optional day trips to small islands or to the coral reefs.

Professional PADI diving schools offer a full range of scuba diving with professional equipment. Other water sports such as kiting, kayaking, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, parasailing, and jet skiing are also on offer.

Zanzibar is known as the Spice Islands and was once the world’s leading producer of cloves. A guided tour of the spice farms is also an option there. You will be able to see, smell, and taste aromatic spices and scented plants including guava, mangoes, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, chilies, black pepper, and cinnamon. Your stay in Zanzibar includes breakfast, dinner, and overnight.

  • Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 9: Free morning and departure

Today is the final day of your adventure. Breakfast will be served at the hotel. Transfer to the airport or seaport according to the time of your departure back home.

Location

Tarangire National Park

Day after 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 here, always, there is water.

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’s 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. But Tarangire’s mobs of elephant are easily encountered, wet or dry.

Birdlife at Tarangire National Park

The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. On drier ground, you find the Kori bustard, the heaviest flying bird; the stocking-thighed ostrich, the world’s largest bird; and small parties of ground hornbills blustering like turkeys. 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.

Disused termite mounds are often frequented by colonies of the endearing dwarf mongoose, and pairs of red-and-yellow barbet, which draw attention to themselves by their loud, clockwork-like duetting. 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.

Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is a part of the larger Ngorongoro Conservation Area and often referred to as one of the wonders of the natural world. This crater was once an active volcano until an eruption a few million years in the past blew its cap off, to give the world its largest unbroken caldera encompassing over 260 square kilometers. The Ngorongoro Crater was initially a part of the Serengeti National Park but was later separated from it in 1959.

Serengeti National Park

Witness a million wildebeest, each one driven by the same ancient rhythm, fulfilling its instinctive role in the inescapable cycle of life: a frenzied three-week bout of territorial conquests and mating; survival of the fittest as 40-kilometer long columns plunge through crocodile-infested waters on the annual exodus north; replenishing the species in a brief population explosion that produces more than 8,000 calves daily before the 1,000 kilometers pilgrimage begins again.

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a seventh worldwide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing.

Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates Tanzania’s greatest park. 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. Almost uniquely, all three African jackal species occur here, alongside the spotted hyena and a host of more elusive small predators, ranging from the insectivorous aardwolf to the beautiful serval cat.

But there is more to Serengeti than large mammals. Gaudy agama lizards and rock hyraxes scuffle around the surfaces of the park’s isolated granite koppies. A full 100 varieties of dung beetle have been recorded, as have 500-plus bird species, ranging from the outsized ostrich and bizarre secretary bird of the open grassland to the black eagles that soar effortlessly above the Lobo Hills.

Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an archipelago made up of Zanzibar and Pemba Islands, and several islets. It is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast, and 6 degrees south of the equator. Zanzibar Island (known locally as Unguja, but as Zanzibar internationally) is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles. It is characterized by beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magic of historic Stone Town – said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.

Zanzibar’s brilliant white beaches lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun, and take a break from some busy sightseeing. The beaches in Zanzibar are a paradise, interspersed with picturesque fishing villages, where the people live a simple way of life, unchanged over the years. There are more than 25 fantastic beaches in Zanzibar, and some are so peaceful and remote that the only noise breaking the silence is likely to be the ocean.
