The most striking thing about a safari in Tanzania is the sheer number and variety of animals you see. It’s almost impossible to imagine how many animals there are. As far as the eye can see, you can see the animals you recognise from the nature programmes on TV. This is where they live, and for the next 4 days, you’ll be visiting them.
You’ll mainly be staying in tent camps, so you’re as close to nature as possible, but you get to sleep in proper beds, and the tents have electricity and their own shower and toilet with running water.
Following an unforgettable safari experience, you head to the wonderful Zanzibar, where you can relax on the white sandy beaches, explore the historic Stone Town, savour the island’s spices and exotic fruits, take a boat trip in a traditional dhow or explore Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park.

Day 1 Arusha – Tarangire National Park (139 kms - 3 to 4 hours)
We leave Arusha for Tarangire National Park. This park covering approximately 2600 square kilometers is spectacular in the dry season when many of the migratory wildlife species come back to the permanent waters of Tarangire River. Huge herds of wildebeest, zebras, elephants, eland and oryx gather to stay in Tarangire until the onset of the rains when they migrate again to good grazing areas.
Included in your first night on safari in Africa is:
Day 2 Tarangire National Park – Serengeti National Park (365 kms - 5 to 6 hours)
After breakfast, you head through Ngorongoro’s hilly plateaus, where the red-robed Masai live in round huts, and their cattle graze between the zebras, wildebeest and giraffes of the savannah. Nevertheless, the Masai also live in the 21st century, and it is almost impossible not to smile when you see a Masai leaning against his shepherd’s crook while looking at his mobile phone.
Via Nabi Hill Gate, the route heads north-west across the endless plains of the Serengeti, where animals galore await you; millions of wildebeest and zebras, thousands of antelopes and buffaloes, hundreds of lions, elephants, leopards, hippos, crocodiles and thousands of birds. Serengeti offers one of the most amazing and unique wildlife and outdoor experiences on the planet.
Along the way, there is time to enjoy the packed lunch that you have with you.
You will spend the next two nights at Serengeti Acacia Camp, which is located in the central part of Serengeti which is fondly called Seronera. This is a very scenic area with open plains and lined up with hills. You will be camping in the comfortable way, yet close to nature and the animals. The location inside the national park also allows for a number of unique experiences that you cannot get outside the national park itself.
Included in your second night on Africa Safari is:
Day 3 Full Day in Serengeti National Park
Today, you’ll be going on a full-day safari in Serengeti to look for the “Big Five”: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes. You have a packed lunch with you and thus the whole day to enjoy the wildlife of the fantastic Serengeti.
The ecosystem here in the park is considered to be one of the oldest in the world, and it’s difficult not to feel both humbled and astonished when sitting in your Landcruiser, absorbing all that you see before you. Outside the drought period, you will also see a large number of Thomson’s gazelles, buffaloes, topi, Grant’s gazelles, eland antelopes, warthogs, eagles, ostriches, etc., in addition to the animals already mentioned. Today, you will probably also see and smell the hippos wallowing in the hippo pools.
A fantastic day, just waiting to be experienced and enjoyed!
If you wish to start the day with a memorable, out-of-the-ordinary experience, you can purchase a balloon safari at sunrise over the Serengeti. Watching the sun rise from the basket of the balloon is indescribable. The animals walk about and graze below you, and you can see contours of the landscape that you cannot see from the ground. Enjoy the silence that is broken only by the burner of the balloon – and perhaps a couple of impalas roaring beneath you.
Included in your third night on Tanzania Safari is:
Day 4 Serengeti National Park – Ngorongoro Conservation Area (145 kms - 3 to 4 hours)
After breakfast, we will drive to Ngorongoro for the crater tour with picnic descent to the crater floor for the day tour. Some 20,000 mammals live in the area including about 20 black rhinoceros, making the crater the best place in Tanzania to see these amazing creatures. The crater floor also has one of the highest carnivore densities in the world. Lions, cheetahs, hyenas and jackals are commonly seen, while leopards, servals and bat-eared foxes may be seen with some luck.
Included in your forth night on Tanzania Safari is:
Day 5 Lake Manyara National Park – Zanzibar (125 kms - 2 to 3 hours, and 1 hour flight)
After breakfast and check-out from the hotel, you head to Lake Manyara. This is one of Tanzania’s smallest national parks, covering an area of 330 km2, 200 km2 of which is lake.
Lake Manyara is a paradise for large herds of elephants, buffaloes and baboons, and with more than 400 bird species registered there. You might also be lucky enough to spot the famous tree-climbing lions here.
After this final Tanzania experience, you will be driven to the airport where you will catch a plane to the exotic island of Zanzibar.

Day 6 Full Day Relaxation
The days are yours to do as you please.

A hot, sunny climate all year round is conducive to relaxation and a beach holiday.
The island’s dramatic history includes Arab sultans, Portuguese seafarers, slave trade and European explorers, all of which have left their mark on the island.
