Enjoy the thousands of animals that are around all year. Follow the great migration of wildebeests from our mobile camp in Serengeti National Park. You’re at the perfect location to see this world-famous trek. This safari is suitable throughout the year.
The journey begins in Arusha city, Tanzania’s safari capital. You’re welcomed at the airport and enjoy the first evening in a comfortable hotel, on the outskirts of the city. At this pleasant place, you enjoy a drink and a bite with the sounds of crickets and young birds in the background.
Our guide picks you up to start your safari. You drive west through the Maasai Steppe to Tarangire National Park. This park is known for the gigantic baobab trees and large elephant herds.
Before you reach Lake Manyara National Park, you drive through the village of Mto wa Mbu. This typical African village hosts a colourful local market with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Certainly worth to explore.
Subsequently, you spend two nights inside (or near) the park, from where you have the opportunity to take a safari at night or by foot. There’s a great chance that animals pass by as you enjoy a cold drink at the tent.
In the village of Mto wa Mbu you can go mountain biking or get acquainted with daily life in this bustling village on foot.
You drive on to the Ngorongoro Highlands and make a full day safari in the world famous Ngorongoro Crater where you potentially see all of the Big Five in one day.
The road from the Ngorongoro Highlands to the Serengeti is one of the most iconic itineraries in Tanzania. Serengeti literally means “endless plains.” You’ve probably never been able to see for such a distance in your life. In search of fresh grass, throughout the year millions of animals roam through this park, which has so much to offer.
You say goodbye to your guide and fly to Zanzibar Island. A beautiful flight with exceptional views. In the coming days, you have the opportunity to enjoy the sun, sea and beach on the tropical island of Zanzibar.
In the evening you fly from Zanzibar Island – via Dar es Salaam or Nairobi – back to your home destination, where you arrive the next morning.
This safari with Explore Tanzania is completely private. You only travel with your own group in the same jeep, together with a professional safari guide from Explore Tanzania.
Experience the Tanzanian adventure together with a diversified safari in gorgeous sceneries, and a wonderful beach holiday to end!
