If we had to pick our perfect length, the 4 day safari would be exactly what we would shoot for. Not only do you get ample time to spot the variety of wildlife, you will get to enjoy the two most famous parks in Tanzania. First, enjoy Tarangire National Park, known for its’ splendid Boabab Trees and herbivore population, where you are able to enjoy magnificent views of zebras, wildebeests, giraffes and elephants. From there, you will get to experience the iconic Serengeti, home to the infamous wildebeest migration from late May until July. After departing the serengeti, we continue on to the Ngorongoro Crater, where if you are lucky, the Crater Lions will give you a good show. Finally, after exploring until late in the day, we make our way back towards Moshi, hopefully with some great photographs to share.
All of our safaris are private, ensuring that you will get the most out of your experience in Tanzania.
This is a suggested or sample Tanzanian safari itinerary – it can be adapted to suite your own personal needs and preferences, or to any seasonal changes and migratory animal movements
We depart Moshi or Arusha in the morning, and head for Tarangire National Park, where you will begin your first game drive before midday. Lunch will be served under the mighty Boabob trees after you enter the park and catch your first glimpses of the wildlife and spectacular scenery. After lunch, make your way through the park snapping photos of the zebra, giraffe and elephant that call this area their home. After a full afternoon of game drives, head to your campsite/ lodge for dinner and a night under the stars.
There was a reason that “The Lion King” creators drew their inspiration from the Serengeti, and today you will get to discover why. Renowned for its’ large lion population, this may be the best opportunity to get a great view of a Lion Pride in their natural habitat, as the gazelles, zebras, and buffalo are abundant in this region. Come during the right season, and witness the birth of the wildebeest calves, where they will begin their annual migration to Kenya at the end of May. Lunch will be served in the park, and after a full day of games drives your campsite/Lodge awaits.
After a hearty breakfast and morning game drive in the Serengeti, we make our way to the infamous Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera. An abundance of wildlife graces this infamous area, known worldwide for its’ stunning landscape. Enjoy spotting a multitude of different species, from elephants, hippos and giraffes to the majestic Crater Lions and ravenous hyenas. After a short glimpse of the crater, we wind our way upwards as we head to our campsite/Lodge on top of the crater rim.
After breakfast, we descend back into the crater for an early morning game drive, hoping the cool morning air allows for us to see some active wildlife. As the temperatures rise, we may head to the hippo pool to see these spectacular creatures enjoying a dip to beat the heat. As lunch approaches, we make our way to the picnic site on the lake, taking in the spectacular views and a bite to eat before you head out on the final game drive. After our last glimpse of the park, we head towards the crater rim to make the journey back to Moshi for the evening.
