4 Days Tanzania Safari

Tanzania Safari

This is a 4 days camping safari featuring either Lake Manyara National Park or Tarangire National Park (depending on where there is more concentration on wildlife) as well as the Serengeti National Park and finally the Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is a true wonder of the natural world, famous for its sunken caldera formed over a million years ago – inhabited in harmony by indigenous Maasai, their livestock as well as a startling variety of plant, animal and birdlife species.

Accommodation all through the safari is in 2-man tents, either walk-in or crawl in with mattresses or beds. All camping equipments are provided and involves the use of public campsites where washroom facilities of reasonable hygienic standard are available.

Day by Day Itinerary

DAY 1 MOSHI – TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

Non game-viewing travel time: 3 hours
Distance: 210 km

After breakfast you will be met by our guide/driver, deliver short briefing then head into the Tarangire National Park for a game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. We eat lunch at picnic after which we continue with game until late evening, then drive to the accommodation for overnight.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

DAY 2 TARANGIRE PARK – CENTRAL SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa – the Serengeti National Park – with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti’s species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti national park.

DAY 3 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK – NGORONGORO CRATER

Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
Distance: 145 km 

Be one of only a few fortunate people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti Plains (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). Floating silently above the awakening bush, while spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and over numerous small villages. If not interested with Hot balloon, you will work up early in morning for sunrise game drive. Then return at your accommodation area for breakfast and afterward we continue with game drive until lunch time. After lunch we head to Ngorongoro for overnight. On the way we can experience the Maasai traditional life and experience a little bit of these cultural people lives in the Ngorongoro conservations.

Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

DAY 4 NGORONGORO CRATER – MOSHI

Non game-viewing travel time: 5 hours
Distance: 210 km 

After early breakfast we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is it’s dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually been seen here. After lunch we will start ascending from the crater and return back to Moshi/Arusha or alternatively to Kilimanjaro airport.
