DETAILED ITINERARY: 6 DAYS TANZANIA NORTHERN SAFARI CIRCUIT
Day 1: Arusha to Tarangire National Park
We will depart from our hotel in Moshi or Arusha this morning and drive to Tarangire National Park for a game drive that will last until the afternoon, when we will stop for a picnic lunch. We’ll continue our game drive after lunch until the evening, when we’ll head to our lodge or campsite for dinner and the night.
In addition to being an elephant’s playground, Tarangire National Park is also known as the dry-season habitat of buffalo, lions, wildebeests, zebras, and gazelles. The river Tarangire shoreline also draws many creatures in need of water as well as a variety of bird species, including kingfishers, hoopoes, and white-bellied birds. Tarangire is known for its rolling Savannah, acacia bush, and magnificent baobabs.
Day 2: Tarangire to Serengeti National Park
After breakfast today, you’ll begin the four-hour drive to Serengeti National Park. En route, you’ll stop for a picnic lunch at the Naabi Gate, go on a wildlife drive until dusk, and then head to our lodge or campsite in the middle of the Serengeti for dinner and the night.
Day 3: Full-day game drive at Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, we’ll begin our game drive through the world’s most picturesque park. In the late afternoon, we’ll pause for a picnic lunch before continuing our game drive until dusk, when we’ll go back to our lodge or campsite for dinner and the night.
Serengeti offers truly unique African sounds, sights, and smells, including breathtaking landscapes, constantly shifting light, and fascinating wildlife. During our game drive, we may see lions, leopards, elephants, zebras, cheetahs, antelope, gazelles, hippos, and several types of birds and reptiles because the animals in this park don’t follow any set schedule.
Day 4: To Ngorongoro Crater Rim/Karatu
Those who made reservations for hot air balloon safaris today will be picked up from their lodging or campsite at 5:00am in preparation for their 6:00am departure. You will return to our lodge or camp for brunch after your 90-minute flying experience and champagne, pack your bags, and be driven to the Ngorongoro crater rim or Karatu for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 5: Full-day game drive in Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast today, we’ll drive down to the Ngorongoro crater, which is frequently referred to as a natural wonder of the world. You will take a break from your wildlife drive for a picnic lunch, then in the late evening you will drive to your lodge or camping in Karatu for dinner and the night.
This is the largest caldera in the world, and it is surrounded by grassland, forests, and swamps. Over 25,000 big mammals live on the crater floor’s persistent water as permanent residents. Many of the reasons why you decided to go on safari in Tanzania are listed here. Many animals find shelter here, including lions, waterbucks, baboons, black rhinos, leopards, hyenas, jackals, buffalo, warthogs, gazelles, and many more.
In an area that has been a distinct conservation reserve since 1956 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978, Maasai people share the magnificent environment with their cattle. Ngorongoro is unique in the world due to the peaceful coexistence of man and animal.
Day 6: Drive back to Moshi/Arusha from Lake Eyasi.
We will depart this morning at dawn for the two-hour drive to Lake Eyasi, where we will see the Hadzabe and Datoga tribes and participate in their daily routines.
Journey through the “Gods Must Be Crazy” film. The Hadzabe tribe of Tanzania is the last remaining real nomadic people in Africa. They are thought to have been among the first people to live in the Ngorongoro area around 10,000 years ago, and they currently reside close to Lake Eyasi. They speak the click language and are not warrior tribes. You can either accompany the males as they engage in traditional bow and arrow hunting for their daily sustenance, or you can accompany the women as they go fruit and berry picking. There is no show or “tourist put-on” here. The authentic African cultural experience is this.
Your cultural adventure at Lake Eyasi would be complete if you visited the Datoga tribe. The Datoga people are expert farmers and artisans. You’ll go to where they live and get a close-up look at their way of life. Be ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. After all the fun and excitement, we will transport you back to your accommodation in Arusha or Moshi for supper and overnight, about midday.
