ITINERARY: 11-DAY TANZANIA SAFARI AND ZANZIBAR BEACH HOLIDAY
Day 1: Arusha/Moshi to Tarangire National Park
At 8:00 am, we will pick you up from your accommodation and transport you to a very unique national park. Tarangire is renowned for its varied topography and nine distinct vegetation zones. The largest trees on the continent, the Ancient Baobab trees, which are abundant there and cover the landscape, dwarf any nearby creatures. A wide variety of birds, including lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, and, of course, elephants, may all be seen in the park along the river. In fact, the park offers a one-of-a-kind chance to see relationships between elephant families and has the highest concentration of elephants in the entire nation. There is an observatory with breathtaking views of the river and wildlife in the lunch area, which is quite fascinating. There is a considerable chance that you will watch a hunt while enjoying your picnic. Before you travel to the camp, we will have another game drive in the late afternoon.
Day 2: Tarangire to Lake Manyara National Park
Take a lovely, brief ride over the Great Rift Valley to Lake Manyara National Park, where you may go on a full-day game drive. Despite its modest size (205 square miles), the park is renowned for its magnificent beauty, rich acacia woodland, enormous figs, mahogany trees, and its expanding baboon and blue monkey populations. Giraffes, elephants, and impalas, as well as a sizable number of buffaloes and hippos, are other permanent occupants of this park. The scenery around Lake Manyara is challenging to put into words. Beautiful photo opportunities with giraffes, buffaloes, and the lake (and its flamingos) in the background can be found during game drives along the lake. On this day, additional tours like a bike tour or a boat excursion are offered. In the afternoon, you’ll make a transfer to the camp for dinner.
Day 3: Lake Manyara to Serengeti National Park
On the 3rd day of your 11 Days Tanzania Safari With Zanzibar Extension, You will go to the Serengeti, the most well-known national park in the world, after an early breakfast. Despite being lengthy, the drive itself is beautiful. It is unforgettable to experience the Serengeti for the first time. You will discover why the Serengeti is called the “endless plains” in the local language as you move deeper into the park. The park’s 6,900 square miles (18,000 square kilometers) of plains will most often challenge your concept of distance and stretch to the horizon. The Great Migration, two million wildebeests, tens of thousands of zebras, and several antelope species call it home. It is the ideal location to keep an eye out for big cats and other powerful predators like lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. In this park, numerous well-known television episodes have been filmed.
Day 4-5: Full day Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park will be yours for two whole days. Your preferences are perfectly acceptable to us, and each day will be set up as you desire. You and your advisor will talk about the ideal times for your gaming drives and awakenings. You may, for instance, go on a morning game drive, have lunch at the camp, and then unwind before concluding with an afternoon game drive. A full-day game drive with a picnic lunch is another option.
Day 6: Serengeti To Ngorongoro
On the 6th day of your 11 Days Tanzania Safari With Zanzibar Extension, we advise getting up very early to go on a game drive at a time when the animals are most active and to see one of the most spectacular sunrises you’ll ever see. We will return to the camp for a satisfying brunch following the wildlife drive before traveling to Ngorongoro, the eighth wonder of the world. The crater has walls that are 2,000 feet high and encompass 102 square miles. With nearly all of the East African native wildlife species making the crater their home, it is like a modern-day Noah’s ark. The chance to view a black rhino is one of the very few on the entire continent. A river, many marshes, a soda lake with a large number of flamingos, a forest, and wide plains can all be found in the crater. It is renowned for having the largest elephants in the world, with enormous tusks. The Ngorongoro Crater is a magnificent sight to behold. You will reach Ngorongoro in time for a sundowner.
DAY 7: Full Day Ngorongoro Crater
We will get an early start and enter the crater bottom for an amazing morning of wildlife viewing in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. There will be time for a picnic lunch next to the lovely hippo lake after the game drive. We’ll have a little game drive again after lunch before climbing the crater. We will head toward Lake Eyasi after leaving the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
DAY 8: Full Day Lake Eyasi
On the 8th day of your 11 Days Tanzania Safari With Zanzibar Extension, will be incredibly unique and wonderful. Just before sunrise, you’ll get up extremely early and accompany your guide until he locates the Hadzabe tribe, one of Africa’s last remaining real nomadic groups. You will join them in carrying out their morning rituals after receiving some background information about the tribe. Off the usual path and by no means touristy, this experience is unique. There are incredible prospects for photography. Joining the males on their daily hunt or the women on their daily fruit harvesting session are two possible interactions you might have with the tribe. In either case, you will discover a lot about the Hadzabe way of life. This will undoubtedly be a safari highlight!
After you’ve finished up with the tribe, we’ll head to the stunning Lake Eyasi, a small salt lake at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley. You will board a flight to Zanzibar in the afternoon.
